Very nice walk with Stéphane who is a great guide! He taught us a lot about flowers and plants but also about Reunion Island. I had a great time! Only downside, I learned the day before that the iron hole had been closed for 1 year, and I was therefore disappointed not to be able to go there. I wish I had known that at the time of booking.
