review 30 Nov 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Bird Island - so full of wildlife, giant tortoises, thousands of birds - and idyllic beaches.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Expect/budget to pay a lot for food/drinks.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes and no. We felt it was a shame an airstrip had been made for Bird Island. It must have caused a lot of habitat destruction. That said, the owners of the island do their best for conservation and that is evident by the shear number of birds on the island.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Brilliant!

review 26 Jun 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Cycling around the Northern-most point of La Digue, Seychelles, and discovering Giant Tortoises crossing the road to hang out on the beach.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

If you want to see the Coco de Mer forest on Praslin Island, visit Fond Ferdinand in preference to the Valle de Mai Nature Reserve - it's less busy and cheaper, and you will see similar things, have great personal service and get far fewer mosquito bites!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, especially on Praslin where there were mostly locals working on the hotel staff.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Fantastic! Little problem with noise from beach parties on La Digue on the weekend, but otherwise amazing.
