    Best parts:
    We loved the following: The personal service--with our own guide and drivers, help with luggage, very kind people everywhere. We loved the unusual animals and plants--which we could see up close, both in zoos and in the wild. We loved hearing about the culture, religion, practices, history from some very good guides including Shelio (Diego area) and Dominique (Andasibe area), and several others. We loved the fresh fruit--and most of the food. We loved walking thru the villages, seeing the shops, and interacting with the beautiful children and adults--all very friendly even though we could speak none of the language. Lodging was very comfortable with one exception which was still ok. We loved the organization and communication by our travel agent, Sariaka, who was always an email or phone call away. There was very little that we did not like about this trip--except--see below
    Worst parts:
    The roads are terrible and very slow. Thanks to Evaneos for providing the most comfortable vehicle possible. Thanks to the drivers who really worked hard to minimize the bumps. We loved the lodges, with one exception--but even that one was ok and the food and service was great. We had one miscommunication on the itinerary when two days were switched and we didn't know it. Otherwise communication was excellent. Tana was very smokey and a bit crowded, but certain areas were very interesting.
    Summary:
    Arriving in Tana, we then went east to the Andasibe area, stopping (thankfully) along the bumpy road to visit a park with many of the local animals.

We then connected with guide Dominque who was great at telling and showing us the unique plants and animals of that area. We had lemurs on our shoulders in a park and fed an Indri in the wilds! Next we returned to Tana and flew north to Diago, where we met our excellent guide Sheilo who explained so much--plants, animals, customs, religion,history, culture in good English. We toured Amber Mountain, the red and gray Tsingy, some villages where we were invited to see a home and meet Sheilo's relatives. Finally to NoseBe for several days with a great village immersion, home-cooked meal, interacting with the children, getting wonderful photos, then return to Tana for a final tour of handicraft market and queen's palace.See more

I appreciate that you send this feedback as we may improve our services from now. I would apologize for the switched excursions in Nosy Be and the hotel in Ankarana. I hope one day you will come back to discover other regions. It would be a pleasure for me to arrange your second tour in my lovely country! Thank you so much for your trust. Best regards from Madagascar :) SariakaSee more

    Best parts:
    Initial communication from Sariaka First 5 days in rain forest
    Worst parts:
    Change of guide after 5 days - second guide no where need as good The fact the second guide had a box of 12 dozen condoms on the passenger seat! One of the hotels had had a major fire a week before but we were not told until we arrived that the restaurant and pool were out of use and were given not option to move even though we requested. Photos available. We were only guests there for first night no electricity for 6 hours, took 20mins to be served a drink then asked if we had a bottle opener for it. Temporary restaurant only had two items available so my daughter who is vegetyhad to have plan pasta. Not advised key information about certain parts of trip for example one section required us to be escorted by armed soldiers. Thought this may have been mentioned so we could decide whether we wanted to do. One of the trips required climbing with ropes harnesses and caves, in description just said need good balance. This was same place as fire damaged hotel so we ended up cutting it all short which wasted 4 days of trip. By the time we got through all of this and with the unhelpful second guide we were so over it we booked return flights hone early. We abandoned our guide and got another driver which we paid for locally
    Summary:
    Beautiful country but very difficult travelling around, very high poverty and average accommodation

To respond your remarks, I would inform you that: - The second driver is responsible to sensitize driver guides to fight against AIDS/HIV. - Hotels which are on the same standing as Olympe of Bemaraha are already closed during your stay in this area (West circuit ends on the middle of November), so I cannot change your hotel. - The booking form I sent you some days after getting your confirmation to make the trip should inform me that some of participants are on diet or have some allergies. I could tell the hotel in advance to prepare vegetarian menus for you. - Armed soldiers ensure your safety to reach the tsingy and your way back. Really sorry if I do not let you know in advance. It is required when you are on the spot. Thank you for having chosen Madagascar as your destination. I take your comments into account to improve our services. I wish you all the bests.See more
