Tour Reviews
  • abi
    Claude and Erik from Korobo Tours were both great guides - fluent English and tonnes of knowledge about the culture of the area. We travelled from Fort Dauphin to Tulear by taxi-brousse, stopping on the way for a cultural experience in a village where we got to dance with a witch doctor and cook traditional Malagasy food. Once in Tulear, we visited Mangily, snorkelling on the protected reef and visiting the baobabs. It was an amazing trip which Claude and Erik organised very well and we learnt so much more about the local customs because they were with us. They were both very friendly with a great sense of humour and made great travel buddies as well as guides! I would highly recommend Korobo Tours for anyone wanting to experience Malagasy culture first hand!
