A tour around Mahé is a real MUST. Only then can you see how beautiful Mahé is and that the (main) island of the Seychelles does not have to hide from any other islands (Praslin or La Digue).

The sights / spots mentioned are just some initial information. We do not want to anticipate too much. In reality, you will see much more on this island tour than we would like to describe.

As Seychellois, we know the Seychelles, we know how the Island Tour Mahé should be and we are very flexible with your wishes also happy to cater for everything you would like to see and discover. We speak German, English and French.

Please note, that all the spots we describe after, are just the possibilities on our tour. Unfortunately we cannot visit all spots due to time constraints. 5-6 hours are a long time in the car. So You have to choose what you would like to see.

In 5-6 hours there is a lot to discover and you will have enough time to decide where we stop and wait or where only something should be shown, photographed.

If after 5-6 hours you still haven’t seen and discovered enough of our beautiful paradise and you still have the energy, you can also extend the tour for €25 per hour.

    Positive: value for money, professionalism, quality

    My wife and I truly enjoyed the island tour that we spent with Sheena last week. Our time together included a driving tour through Victoria and around the island, with stops at a historic plantation (Domaine de Val de Pres), the Takamaka Rum Distillery, a scenic waterfall near Port Launay, a scenic drive around the east and west sides of Mahe, and finishing up the day at the Botanical Garden in Victoria. There is much more to see than one can pack into 5 or 6 hours, but Sheena does her best to match sites with your interests, and is flexible in her planning. She has much interesting information to share about the history and culture of the island, and it was a real pleasure to spend the day in her company. In addition, I booked a separate trip with her on another day to do a hike on the Copolia Trail….it was well worth it, as Sheena knows the trails in these mountains well, and takes care that guests have a safe and memorable experience. Highly recommended.

    We had an amazing day in Mahe thanks to Sheena! :) we enjoyed the beauties of the island and took
    an note on Sheena’s reccomendations regarding Anse Major trail, which we did on our own in the next
    days. It was lovely

    Price-performance ratio, quality

    Sheena’s tour was one of our highlights in Mahe! She is a lovely person, who seems very passionate about the local culture and history. She gave us unique tips into best places in the island, and shared with us her extensive knowledge of the Creole history. We think our experience would have lacked depth had we not visited the Demain de Val and the Spice Garden without Sheena. She gracefully shared with us the artisanal and botanical knowledge of the islanders; encouraged us to interact with the museum items, touch and smelled the plants… It was a full on experiential learning tour. Do yourself a favor and book a trip with her!

    Amazing Seychelles tour in one day

    We had an amazing time on this tour with Sheena. She is very friendly and made us feel welcome and safe in the Seychelles! Sheena customised our itinerary based on our preferences we discussed at the start of tour, and we got to see all the attractions we wanted to, including the takamaka rum tasting experience, feeding a giant tortoise, seeing the Victoria city and also the most beautiful beaches and viewpoints on the island. Sheena gave an excellent commentary and told us interesting facts about the island while we drove around and gave us ideas of other places and islands we might like to visit during our stay. We were dropped off at an excellent place for light lunch and to try the local seybrew beer on tap! I would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone looking to get a good feel for the whole island in just one day and looking to learn about the island from someone who lives here. If we lived on the island I’m sure we would be very close friends with Sheena! We will definitely be back to the Seychelles in the future for another one of Sheena’s tours!

    We booked two trips with Sheena (Island Tour Mahé, Copolia Trail)
 and deeply enjoyed both of them. She is a fantastic guide, very professional, passionate, knowledgeable and kind. Of course we also considered to simply rent a car and explore the island on our own, but honestly said: We would have missed a lot … not only all of those amazing, less well known places, but also quite some fun :-)
    Our trip to Mahé wouldn’t have been the same without Sheenas recommendations and valuable insights, so do yourself a favor and try it out yourself !

    Must-do Mahe Isand tour

    It was a pvt tour, so it was customisable. The beaches on the south were very beautiful! Great insights into the history and the different sights of the island. Sheena was great, and very accomodating.. and took us to some great viewpoints which made for great photography. Good recommendation for (local cuisine) lunch and afternoon cocktails!
