An island tour with Sheena or her brother Kevin (Seychellois) around Mahé is a real MUST. Only then can you see how beautiful Mahé is & that the main island of the Seychelles does not have to hide from any other islands (Praslin & La Digue).

The sights / access points mentioned are options. In reality you will see much more on the tour of the island than we can describe. Culture, country & people, history, all in a day trip of about 5-6 hours.

There is always the possibility on the tour (optional) to buy drinks, have lunch, snacks & take aways or visit a toilet.

As Seychellois, we know the Seychelles, are very flexible with your wishes, and are happy to go into everything you want to see and discover. We speak German, English and French.

My company is Authorized & Insured, Certified by the Tourism Board & Licensed by the Government.

What To Expect

Mahe Island
Beautiful & private island tour around Mahé, according to your wishes. Only you or your group/family will participate.

You decide in advance or on the day of the tour which activity you want to see/do. We will adapt to this and give you all our insider tips.

Please note that all spots that we describe below are only examples on our tour.
There is a lot to discover in 5-6 hours but you still have enough time during the tour to decide where to stop and wait or where to just show something, take pictures.

Unfortunately, due to time constraints, we cannot all visit places. 5-6 hours is a long time in the car. You are therefore free to choose what you want to see and experience.

However, if after 5-6 hours you still haven't seen and discovered enough of our beautiful paradise, you still feel energetic, you can always extend the Mahé Island Tour for €25 per hour.

One of the smallest capitals in the world.
We will pass many sights here and only stop briefly.

Please note the distillery is closed on weekends and bank holidays.

These beautiful options would also be selectable on Mahé:

Panoramic views of Eden Island and Victoria
We stop at a very nice point near Victoria. You can take great pictures at this point.

It has to be seen and photographed. Extremely spectacular, unique and beautiful. It is also possible to swim there, but the waves are rough and only suitable for good swimmers.

Port Launay, Hotel Ephelia
One of the most beautiful beaches on Mahe, in a stunning bay. Depending on where you are staying, you may combine this with a sunset.

Sunset drink / Sunset cocktail on the beach
Watching the sunset on a Mahé island tour is incredible.
