loved their trip to Madagascar

Madagascar was on our bucket list... we love Africa, last year we travelled to Tanzania and Zanzibar,this year we had planned Ethiopia but we changed it to Madagascar, and next December going to Morocco. (It is planned that we contact Evaneos for Papua New Guinea in a couple of years time...) Linah from Authentic Madagascar Tours planned it with us to the last detail, giving us all necessary info and as I said it was better than we expected.

Best parts:
Absolutely everything was beyond our expectations. We travel quite a lot and have a lot of experience but the tour was meticulously planned and executed. There was not much that could be improved. The best part for us was whenever we enountered the animals in their natural surroundings. Since we come from a densely populated and tiny island state without any kind of wildlife (Malta) this was a priority for us and we were very very satisfied.
Worst parts:
The worst parts had nothing to do with your company as such... 1. we encountered several large groups of loud Italian tourists who had no respect for other tourists or wildlife with their shouting and loud behaviour. On Nosy Be we saw tourists actually picking up hatching turtles and 'helping' them by carrying them to the sea!! Our guide talked to the other guide telling him this should not be done but there was little that could be done 2. In the South of the Island we were very sad to see children begging for water and the authorities should do something about this. We gave them all the water we had in the car but we could do nothing for the rest... 3. It was an experience... the driver helped us all the way to the security check in and was very very helpful but once the porters and hotel staff at Ivato International Airport found us on our own and realized that we were in Business Class they took us over, holding our passports and boarding passes with the excuse to help us (actually in a way they did as we were rushed through the airport) but at a cost as they demanded exorbitant tips which we were dishing out in an attempt to get safely through. Giving tips is ok where a good service is done but this part was literally daylight robbery! (we will not let these things spoil our holidiay, definitely not, in fact it was an experience which we laughed about back home, but it should not be this way). Again this had NOTHING to do with the company organizing the tour.
