What people are saying about Praslin Island

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!

The driver (Reynold) was on time, he was a very honest and nice guy. They took us to a beautiful place for snorkeling despite the wind. Curieuse Island was wonderful and the barbecue was excellent. We really recommend it !!

Absolutely fantastic!! Worth every penny!! We are so glad we took a chance and did this!! You won't regret it..... don't hesitate!

Really a successful experience! We had a lot of fun snorkeling. We will definitely recommend this tour to our friends.

Magical day. Discovery of turtles and superb walk in the mangrove swamp before swimming among the fish
