Jacqueline "Great trip. The guide was amazing, very caring and knowledgeable with a good sense of humor. Madagascar is not an easy country to travel as the conditions are tiring.

    I already wrote a review about our wonderful guide Coco. He was always patient, kind, fun and professional as well as knowledgeable. The only complaint I have about this tour is we paid for 14 days. The last day was a wash. There was nothing provided. The 13th day was also robbed from us by making us go from Ifaty to Antananarivo very early in the morning. We were told it was due to flight schedules and irregularities, but when the group is formed why wasn’t the reservation made for the 14th day? I felt like Day 13 was a wasted day when we could have enjoyed Ifaty for another day and night. Also some of the optional activities I felt should have been part of the tour. I do like that Gadventures gives back to the communities. It was fantastic to be part of the tree planting.

    Due to Madagascar being such a huge place there was necessarily long days on the bus, but these were broken up with fantastic views and regular stops. We loved Madagascar and hope to visit again. Solofo our guide was fantastic.

    Great trip. The guide was amazing, very caring and knowledgeable with a good sense of humor. Madagascar is not an easy country to travel as the conditions are tiring. Some days there are long, twisty, bumpy and hot drives. G Adventures did their best to ensure the comfort despite this. Anyone going on this tour should be prepared for this and might consider going in a cooler period to make this a bit easier (I went in Dec). I learned a lot about Madagascar culture and wildlife and met great people.
