Edelweiss Tours is providing the most complete private Tour of Praslin. The private tour includes a visit to the National Park the Vallee de Mai, or my personal favorite, the Nature Park Fond Ferdinand, which is more unique & has a larger diversity of plants, trees and palms. Visiting the world's most beautiful beaches, such as the Anse Georgette, Cote d'Or, Anse Lazio & many more which are far away from the tourist areas, accessible only by foot, or on narrow roads. Including in the program is a trip to Mt. Zimbabwe (viewpoint), from where we find the great panoramic view with the lush green of the island and overlooking the ocean. (on request I also offer hikes, excursions & nature trails, which lead us to the most remote regions of the island, through the densest jungle and breathtaking vantage points of Praslin).

I am also a passionate photographer and it would give me no trouble to take (many) photos of you throughout the our tour. If feeling hungry (snacks) Restaurants, with creole dishes are never far away. Advantages of the 6 - 9 hour tour by car and foot, is getting a general over view of the Island itself in just 1.day. Including general information which help facilitate your stay with us in the Seychelles.

We contacted Mario after reading the 5 star reviews on Trip Advisor and the rating is very well deserved. We contacted him on email and received his prompt response confirming the tour. The Edelweiss tour website is also very informative in general about travelling in Seychelles. On the day of the excursion he picked us up promptly from the Praslin... More

I took a 1-day tour of Praslin with Mario this past December. Coordinating with him beforehand via e-mail was wonderful. He was very clear and responsive. He picked me up as planned and took me on a lovely tour of the island. He was a knowledgeable and friendly guide. I'd definitely recommend Edelweiss Day Tours for anyone visiting the Seychelles.

Mario was unable to guide us as he was vacationing in Switzerland at this time. He worked with us to get a substitute driver/guide and booked Vincent for us. I'd highly recommend that Mario do that again for future bookings that he cannot handle as Vincent was excellent. Timely, friendly and knowledgeable. We had a great day seeing this beautiful...

We were lucky to find Mario on Tripadvisor as we had a great day with him on the island. He is very knowledgable about Praslin or Seychelles overall and introduced to us the all the secrets of the islands. Although majority of his reviews are in German, we had our tour in English and we were very happy.
