- This was a lovely relaxed pace trip. The walks were shortish but quite challenging at times in terms of climbs. Beaches varied and lovely. Boat trips exciting.
Our tour leader was very knowledgable about flora and forna and local culture and great to be with as we were such a small group. Lucky we all got on but as the couple wanted some time alone( understandable) and the other lady and I quite different at times it was a little lonely.
The first hotel lacked air conditioning which made it very very hot. The other 2 were great although being by the beach is always preferable.
The tour notes need updating. The flights you book are Emirates and they don't get you to the hotel with the tour leader until 4 pm so there is no way a pm trip can be done. Transfer at La Digue is by car NOT ox cart, you see very few these days.
Great trip all round, thanks.
