We did the tour with Jose, he’s a very pleasant guide and the tour was amazing. We learned much more than expected and also had free time to enjoy the Vallée de Mai and Anse Lazio beach. I would definitely come back to discover more. Thank you Jose we had a wonderful day thanks to you.

The guide was very knowledgeable of the island, being a native Praslinois. He took us on a car tour of the island on the way from our hotel to Vallee de Mai, showed us where locals lived and stopped to show us interesting places and nature. At Vallee de Mai, he stayed with us most of the way and was invaluable providing context and information on the flora and fauna. He gave us about 45 minutes to explore on our own after that, before bringing us to Anse Lazio. He also offered to stop at a shop on the way for us to grab lunch (Anse Lazio only has one restaurant). Unfortunately, the weather wasn't on our side in Anze Lazio so we had to cut our trip short. Fortunately, though, our guide was waiting for us in the car the whole time and we could leave whenever we wanted. Overall, really recommend it!

The excursion is highly recommended. We were picked up by José at our accommodation and drove in a small group (there were only 4 of us) to the nature park. On the way our guide told us a lot about the island. Our group was linguistically mixed, which was no problem at all for José. He took the time to explain everything to us in both English and French! He accompanied us through the park and told a lot about the animal and plant world. He was also always looking for things to show us. The tour was very entertaining and interesting. We then drove to Anse Lazio, where we had four hours of free time to relax on the beach and have lunch in the restaurant before heading back to the accommodation. José was also able to show us many exciting things on the trips. We would discover Praslin with him again at any time.
