Fantastic! Guide very helpful and knowledgable. Activities full on with down time to rest at the end. A beautiful place and in the short I was there, I managed to see a range of landscapes and participate in a wide range of activities.”

The tour was just amazing. It was great to spend these days in Madagascar. I learned a lot about the nature, landscape, culture and the people who live there. Our guide, Armel, has a wide knowledge about Madagascar and all the animals and plants, which he shared with us. It was always very interesting to listen to his words and we were welcome to ask all our questions. Armel leaded the tour just perfectly. He showed us all sites of Madagascar and was very funny all the time. His short briefings every evening were very helpful.

The tour itself was a perfect mixture between activities and freetime. We hiked a lot, climbed on rocks and went to caves and we were able to spent the last two days just at the beach. It was the perfect finish for our tour. Everything was well organised and I would recommend this tour to everybody.”
