Unfortunately it was not the trip we hoped for. Maybe it is the time of the year, but almost every flower and plant was dehydrated or was dead. The entrance was 15 euro's for two persons, really not worth it.

Extremely friendly staff. Self guided tour with provided map. Beautiful grounds. Trees and flowers clearly marked so you know what you are looking at. Nice breeze (unusual for Seychelles). Definitely a beautiful place to visit that the tour guides tend to forget about.
