Plenty of variety in the tour. Full timetable of activities, ie going to see the wildlife with people well experienced in their field. All the guides were helpful particularly to me as I arrived with a splint on one wrist.
Accommodation was good quality and varied, so was the food.
The travelling was quite hard as the roads were bad but the driving was good in the circumstances and the vehicle well maintained.
The guide was good and knowledgeable about his country but rather over emphasised the security problem with our valuables tht I became a little worried about meeting the people.

Bangkok, Thailand
This is my first time with Explore. I’m very impressed how they arranged such variety itineraries for every aspect of nature and travelling lovers: rainforest trekking, beautiful landscape, market place, craft shops, snorkeling etc. even staying at a very basic guest house is a once in a lifetime experience of a person who live to learn. I ‘m quite sure that this will not be my last trip with Explore.
The highlights has to the range of many varieties of lemur, and also many different birds, chameleons, frogs, insects, spiders, lizards etc. I can say that our group had a great time with so many species of lemurs and chameleons.
Our guide, Armand was attentive, informative and helpful including with every evening brief. Our driver and his assistance are also very good despite of the some poor condition roads. Our bags and things left on their bus were well-protected.

Terrific tour. Excellant tour leader. One of the best in the 9 trips I have taken with Explore. The drivers and the local quides are also very qood.

The highlights has to the range of different lemurs you see and how close you get to them in some of the national parks.

The stay at the quiet and basic village of Anakao, is a great counter balance to Tana and the big cities.

The only downside is the state of the roads but that is part of the experience.

Totally recommend the whole trip.

As a first timer to Madagascar things couldn't have gone better. Tour leader Claude was clearly an experienced guide, giving us the right information at the right time so that everyone knew where they were. Our bus driver and his mate were A1 getting us round this big island in a safe and timely manner. Highlights were being able to see so many lemurs at really close quarters and seeing the very varied landscape. The local guides were very knowledgeable especially in the National Parks. Horse riding in Isalo on good animals and along good trails was a big plus for me too. The people have very little but were friendly and curious, especially the children. Any unwanted clothes and shoes were gratefully accepted, so if you have any spare space in your suitcase and any old clothes you no longer need, take them with you. Very glad I went.

The national parks were the highlight and the Malagasy people.
Have some time on your own after the tour.

Listening to the Indri calling from the rain forest first thing in the morning.

The beach stay and the impromptu beach party.

The optional afternoon walk through the canyon at Isalo National Park (Make sure that you are fit enough, that you cover up well and take plenty of water as it is the hottest part of the day).

Seeing so many different species of lemur and chameleon. Visiting the tropical rainforest with such dedicated and knowledgeable guides. Altogether a great experience. Lovely beach resort at the end of a busy two weeks. You need to be reasonably fit as quite a lot of walking but our guide Armand was always attentive and thoughtful and paced the activities. The local people were delightful and the culture fascinating. Occasionally there were minor domestic glitches such as no electricity or hot water, but do not let that put you off.
Do not miss out on this excellent holiday

This was a comprehensive and thoroughly enjoyable tour of an interesting and varied country. The rainforest treks were particular highlights due to the abundance of wildlife – our group saw around 15 species of lemur and numerous types of chameleons (as well as many types of birds, insects and frogs). The local guides in each place were knowledgeable and passionate, and it was great to see Explore supporting developing tourism in the country. It’s hard to pick one standout moment as the whole tour was so wonderful.

The trips are fantastic, the itinerary has a lot packed i, so you never feel that you miss out on anything, and the tour leaders are always helpful and friendly, telling you about the country and local customs etc.

The wildlife, particularly the lemurs, was amazing. Local guides and animal spotters all superb. This is the main focus of the trip and it delivers brilliantly.
Food generally very good, apart from breakfast - it's bread and jam practically every day unless you pay for extras. Hotels were good or better.
Horse riding is available at Isalo.
Some long days driving, but they're broken up well with interesting stops.

Pack all souvenirs in hold baggage as customs will confiscate anything made of wood, metal, stone or zebu horn in your cabin bag. There is no warning about this until after emigration.
