Intéressante et instructive.

Visite très intéressante et instructive. Nos guides maitrisaient et vulgarisaient très bien l'histoire de la grosse ile. Un seul point négatif c'est que étions trop pressé dans le temps, pas assez de temps pour visiter le site convenablement. Exemple la visite du bâtiment de désinfection nous avions 30 min - le guide a pris 20e min donc il nous restait +/- 10 min pour faire le tour, ce qui était insuffisant. Nous recommanderions fortement cette visite.

Très belle expérience! Belle animation par les guides sur l’ile et ceux sur le bateau. Mon seul point négatif est que le temps passe trop vite et on manque un peu de temps pour tout voir ou lire!

La traversée était extra. La visite très bien mais je crois qu’il y aurait encore à développer pour optimiser l’expérience de l’Ile. Il y a des endroits ou ce fut trop rapide (batisse de la désinfection) et trop long à la croix. Les guides étaient excellents
