Came to Seychelles to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in May 2016. After a very relaxing week in the beautiful Silhouette island, and after transferring to Mahe for another week, we decided to go to see the giant tortoises at the Curieuse island.

My husband and I came to Seychelles in March for our honeymoon. After doing much research prior, we selected Nigel/Indigo and could not be happier with our decision. Up front, most of our communication had been with his sister Jane who is extremely patient and listened to all our needs. She curated a 2 day trip for us. The first... More

Our stay at Praslin was rather short, but we wanted to see as much as possible packed into one day tour. Indigo Excursions were the only one to provide what we wanted (others tend to operate on set routes only). In a day tour we visited beaches at Praslin (Anse Georgette and Anse Lazio), islands Curieuse with its giant friendly... More

I don't think I can truly write a review that does the guys as much justice as they deserve.

We met with Nigel the day beforehand at our hotel. He was very candid about the weather and that there might be choppy waters. We decided to proceed the next day.
