Travel reviews by Mr P & Mrs A from Chipping Norton


Overall, a lovely holiday.

On this trip, I visited Seychelles between 8-Apr-2011 and 18-Apr-2011 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

GoodGood

The above rating would have been Very Satisfactory had it not been for the poor performance of Air Seychelles. Expert Africa (Lucy) was very helpful and efficient and the organisation of our trip was excellent.

I would not, however, recommend the Hotel l'Ocean. For your information, one of the other tour operators from whom we also secured a quote and with whom we had some discussion, did not recommend this hotel and suggested as alternatives Patatran Village and Le Domaine which were only marginally more expensive.

The advice on the choice of Islands and the duration of stay on each one was excellent.

Apart from the problem with Europcar, our trip was truly memorable. We have travelled extensively and Namibia currently holds the number one spot.

The overall level of service was excellent as was the organisation.
