Excellent way to explore Mahe

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed doing a half day tour of Mahe island with Nils from Cocotier tours. He is very professional and the sites are excellent
Short but lovely trip

Very nice trip. The driver was very polite, punctual and helpful. He showed us everything that was listed and stopped at some additional spots for pictures.
Gave us enough time to explore Mahe and Victoria on our own, take photos and shop for souvenirs and local delicacies.
We drove along both East and west coast so we got to enjoy the view both on our way to and back from Victoria to our Chalet in Mahe...
Was totally worth it!
Sehenswert und informativ ... bis traumhaft

Ausflug über AIDA gebucht und Glück gehabt: Einheimische, deutsch-sprachige Reise-Begleiterin zeigte uns die "übersichtlichen" Highlights von Victoria sowie im Norden der Insel einen der vielleicht schönsten Strände der Welt. Wunderschöne Landstriche - wie von einer Foto-Tapete aufgenommen.
Die Seychellen (insbesondere La Digue) sind in meiner persönlichen Liste der schönsten Urlaubsdomizile ganz weit nach oben gerückt.
Enjoyable afternoon.

We visited Victoria early September and were impressed with the cleanliness and friendlt locals who were helpful answering typical tourist queries.
Disaapointing theta the Hindu Temple was closed but enjoyed brwising the local fresh fish and vegetable anf fruit market and bought fruits which reminded of the happy childhood spent in Tanzania.
On way to Victoria we stopped over at the spectacular Eden Island such a nice environment.
We were at Kempinsky and John over there arranged the transport with a very friendly knowledgeable fluent speaking local guide .
A must visit place.
Half Day Tour of Victoria in Seychelles

Our driver was very nice, but I would not consider this a tour. He really didn't have many details to offer us on what we were seeing. The best part of the tour was the Botanical Gardens, which are fabulous. If we were to go again, we would take the hotel's bus and just stop at certain places on our own.
