Tour Reviews
  • Judy

    Jean Claude was very good. He explained our itinerary in detail and organised the tour well. We can thoroughly recommend him.

  • Cynthia

    Not only was Jean Claude a wonderful guide, he was a delightful companion.   He was cheerful, knowledgeable, and patiently attentive.   He delivered everything that we asked and more and always kept us comfortable; we are not easy-going tourists.

  • Christopher

    Great communication from start to finish. Simon my guide was very friendly and timings were very prompt. Guided me to my hotel door at the start of the trip and then waited until my flight had taken off after the trip. 

    Many thanks to Jean Claude and Simon (and the great driver who's name has escaped me). I would highly recommend Jean Claude.

  • Nanie
    Mon mari et moi sommes très satisfait de notre voyage à Madagascar avec ce guide très professionnel, sympathique et plein d'humour. Pour découvrir cette merveilleuse ile, je vous recommande de prendre Monsieur RALAINIAINA Jean Claude comme guide, vous ne serez pas décu et passer des moments inoubliables. Tout était parfait, bon rapport qualité prix!
  • Halsz
    Jean Claude is a professional guide with amazing sense of humor. He knows a lot about the island and is very happy to share it with you. I was on the trip with my mom, we spent together two weeks and I do not regret a single minute. He took care of us during the whole trip. I can strongly recommend Jean Claude as a guide in Madagascar.
