The trip is tightly organized and everything works. In the short time is not more to create. The ferry ride with the high-speed ferry is unreasonable. But Get-your-Guide cannot do anything about that. 85% of the passengers were green after the hour ferry and unfortunately for many the day was over. The Valley Park is of course overcrowded. Because all the guides pick up the groups from the ferry and cart them straight to the Coco de Mer park. There is also a lot of joy in lost. Then you are driven 25 minutes over a very serpentine route to the beach for 25 minutes. And then zack zack onto the ferry to La Dique. The hotel that served food was very nice. The lunch buffet rich and good. Then there was 40 minutes on the beach and then everyone hop hop back onto that horrible ferry. I would not do this trip again. Because of the ferry, the transport has been rated poorly. The buses that picked us up were on time and good.

a long wait in the morning (departure at 6 am at the hotel to take the boat only 3 hours later...), but an interesting day. To be deplored: little time on the proposed activities: 20 minutes in the Vallée de Mai, for example, it's a bit short, just like the passage to the colonial house where I would have liked to linger. I would have liked to have also been able to take more time to visit the beaches of La Digue: it was a bit quick and well done... Excellent restaurant at noon

Our guide was knowledgeable and kept the tour going on time. The itinerary feels rushed because of the considerable travel time. We had about 4hours of visiting and 4hours of travel/waiting. Both Praslin and La Digue in one day is very ambitious. I would recommend only if you have very limited time and wish to check off a few things on your Seychelles todo list.
