Me and my husband visited Curieuse Island with Creole Travel. Our guide was fantastic!!!! He was more of an entertainer but very knowledgeable on the subject.

The walk around Curieuse was very informative. We loved feeding the giant tortoises and watching the baby ones. The dog accompanied us all along! Its job is to find baby tortoises and hand them over to the guards so that they would not be harmed. We also saw an array of flora and fauna.

Loved every bit of this excursion and would definitively recommend it!

The walk was just an amazing experience,
The lunch was super expensive (considering that it was done with the MOST basics), prepared by locals on the beach, in the most trivial setting, and that is what makes it worth the money !!!!
There are few chefs (!!!!) working there, with different backgrounds ( Seychellois, Indian, Thai) and hence the table setting (!!!), the spices used to cook the fish and the accompaniment are different .
Ours was the unforgettable Seychellois; Johnny, who gave us a very yummy BBQ food consisting of 2 medium sized fish and one chicken for price of 150 Euro !!!! The food was served on palm leaf covered table using the disposables dishes( the forks and knives was pre-used and washed), no beverages, two very small dish of salad, some white toast in plastic bag...we didn't have any rice and noodle or fruit platter sides or flowers on the table as the two other cooks had prepared, but Johnny was insisting with his lovely Creolan accent that he had made the food with love and with heart..., a real Creolan table not something Indian or Thai
So when you get there have look around inspect the set tables before choosing your chef...nonetheless we enjoyed it a lot and do recommend Johnny

Fantastic! The tortoises are truly amazing - don't NOT go there, you will love it. Go for the complete deal including the grilled lunch at the beach, it was very memorable - in a good way.

We landed at the doctor's house and got a nice historical overview. You can walk through mangrove area. The walk ends in a tortoise pen where tortoises walk around freely and you can observe these animals from real close
