The only tourist information body in the Seychelles is the generally very good Seychelles Tourism Board (STB). The head office is in Bel Ombre, with smaller offices at the airports in Mahé and Praslin, and the jetties in Praslin and La Digue. The website is also tremendously helpful when planning a trip, and includes copious and regularly updated information from logistics to accommodation to activities. Maps of the main islands and consumer brochures are available for free. The largest tour operator in Seychelles is Mason's Travel. You can book any kind of tour imaginable with their helpful staff; note that their hotel rates can be more competitive than booking directly with the hotel. Walking trail maps can be purchased at the Botanical Garden and Antigone Bookshop for Rs25.
