Beautiful experience discovering the island with our guide Jose. We crossed the Vallee de Mai illustrating the local flora and fauna. We then moved to the Cote D'or exploring beautiful beaches, before arriving at the beautiful Anse Lazio. Wonderful day, highly recommended tour and Jose phenomenal, nice, engaging and really very kind. Thanks for everything

We had a great day during our tour on Praslin. Our tour assistant was very welcoming and offered us lots of helpful information about the places we’ve seen and also about the inhabitants of the island. We first went to Vallee de Mai, where our lovely tour guide, Jana, sorted our entrance and she joined us a few meters into the national reserve to explain a few things about the famous coco de mer. She then let us go see the park by ourselves and we felt a bit lost, especially since we’ve seen other groups being joined by their guides inside the park. We then headed to Anse Lazio where we spent time swimming, taking pictures, walking on the beach barefoot and just enjoying the beauty of this place. The only recommendation I can give is to ensure that the group has a guide when visiting the Vallée de Mai. We would have paid for one gladly if we would have been told that the guide is not included. We enjoyed our day on the island and it was because of our lovely guide. Thanks!

Facevamo parte di un gruppo di 5 persone, quindi molto gestibile. L'autista ha prelevato prima noi e poi gli altri, così ha approfittato per un veloce giro panoramico dell'isola. Alla Vallée de Mai abbiamo trascorso circa 2 ore: molto interessante e la nostra guida/autista è stata molto molto brava nello spiegare (in inglese) la storia del cocó de mer e le altre meraviglie naturali del parco (alberi, frutti, semi, animali) che si incontrano sul sentiero. Il sentiero è facile, con qualche salita, ma si può fare anche con scarpe da mare. Poi siamo stati circa 2-3 ore a Anse Lazio, bellissima spiaggia non troppo affollata. Si può prendere il sole o stare all'ombra riparati dalle palme. Chi vuole può pranzare al ristorante lì vicino, oppure fare un pic-nic, oppure comprare della frutta fresca nei chioschi sulla spiaggia. Escursione consigliata.
