Very well organised - I felt well looked after all the time
It was my first time travelling to Madagascar and with Malasya Travel.
Since I wanted to travel the western part in November I did some intensive research and was very lucky to find Nary and his team. I could dicsuss all my ideas and wishes and I ended up with a program that included everything I wanted to see. Even before and during the trip they were always flexible and I really felt the Malagasya team wanted me to be happy and enjoy Madagascar.
In addition, the hotels were excellent, my guide Coco was very knowledgable (especially about birds) and the driver Christian was very experienced and a reliable and fun guy on top of that. Even when we had a problem with a tire and an early flooding crossing our path - everything was taken care of in a relaxed but efficient manner, allowing me to enjoy every mile of the journey.
On the last night of my trip, Nary and Riantsoa even invited me to a nice restaurant in Antananarivo, ensuring a perfect end to a fantastic adventure.
While it was not a cheap vacation, I can only thank the great people I met along the way and can definitely recommend a Madagascar trip with Malagasya travel.

I used Malagasya travel for my trip to Madagascar in October 2022. I contacted them via their website and I received a response very quickly. At first, they gave me a custom itinerary but it was too long for me as I didn't have that much time in hand. So I gave them my requirements and the locations that I wanted to visit. They immediately reverted with a customized itinerary based on my needs. Their service was impeccable right from the start. The driver they assigned me spoke excellent English and the whole tour was a breeze. They even organized a dinner for me on the last night of my tour. Last but not the least, they helped me with the postcards that I wanted to send to my friends across Europe, North America, and Asia. I'd highly recommend that you book your tour of Madagascar with them whenever you're planning to visit it.

Our tour operator Harry was incredible and loved the tour.
Highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting an adventure through Madagascar. Harry and our driver were incredible and very informative. They made sure we were comfortable and made us feel very safe. The overall tour was setup very well and made geographical sense. Riantsoa was also readily available whenever we needed to get in contact with her.

Good tour but several days bored without activities on program.
I booked a tour with Malagasya travels for 14 days throughout southern Madagascar. We hit some of the major national parks as well as the beach on both sides of the country. The tour was pretty good. I would generally recommend Malagasya travels. I really like that Malagasya travels is a local company, and that's one of the reasons I went with them instead of one of the European companies operating in Madagascar with tours throughout Africa. However the reason I gave them four stars instead of five is because of the following. When booking the trip I was looking at several different companies. I had to make a decision of which company to go with and Malagasya travels would promise to send me an itinerary on a particular day and then send it several days later. By doing this they delayed my decision process on picking a tour company to go with and made the process more stressful. Malagasya travels was not my first choice of tour company to use. In addition to this there were several days on their tour which finished in the middle of the day and for the rest of the day you are left at the hotel. This may be desirable for some travelers who wish to just relax, however for me it was frustrating as I wished to do more activities and not just sit around for the day. To pay thousands of dollars for a trip in a wonderful and beautiful country just to lounge around the hotel was not attractive at all to me and was quite frustrating. However, I am younger and I noticed that a larger portion of the tourists in Madagascar are older and retirees, so to travel in the morning and then have the rest of the day free to relax at the hotel, may be quite desirable. I brought both these issues up with Malagasya travels. So good luck with your search for a tour company to use. Malagasya travels was pretty good but less active then some of the other companies in their trips and have delayed responses when communicating with them. But they work hard and you will see and experience many great things if you go with them! Safe travels!

Everyone at Malagasya worked so hard to make our customized trip FANTASTIC
We highly recommend Malagasya Travel who helped us customize an amazing 10 day trip in Madagascar that included our wonderful English speaking driver/guide Christian Berthin (who was safe, knowledgeable, friendly, and very professional), hotels, guided park visits, airport transfers, and loads of information. Riantsoa was our trip planner and was fantastic about answering so many questions we had, which we did all via email. This is definitely a reliable company! They did everything they said they would, plus they were all so nice!

Brilliant from start to finish.
My husband and I organised a private tour with Malagasya Travel for 18 days. The communication was impeccable, our driver Raomi was friendly, easy-going and very helpful, and the tour itself was brilliantly organised. We felt very well taken care of and although there can be a lot of driving, the activities organised were great (not too much, not too little). One thing we asked to add during the trip was a stop to Zombitsie National Park for a couple of hours and it was great with lots of Lemur sightings!

An amazing time with a helpful tour operator and great value for money!
My wife and I did a 2.5 week tour with Malagasya travel from mid-August to September 2022. The help and communication from our tour rep Riantsoa was incredible! It’s the best communication, advice and service we have ever received from a tour operator. The service prior to the trip was so good that I even wrote a review of the company before we had gone on holiday! Which, I know is crazy, but it just goes to highlight the level of customer care they had already delivered. Safe to say, now we have been on the trip I can write a proper review of the adventure itself, and it was just as good as the service we had received before we had boarded the plane.
The itinerary we originally chose was the 15 day tour “Tired of staying home, visit Madagascar”. We ended up adding 3 extra days as we had the time, and as other people have noted, there is a lot of ground to cover and we thought the few extra days would allow more time to relax in certain areas before the longer driving days. All in all though the itinerary allows you to explore a large and diverse portion of the country, from the tropical rainforests in the east, to the highlands and rock formations in the middle, and dry-forests and beaches in the south-west. All the hotels we went to were top-notch, with great service and friendly staff. And our driver Roamihaja (Roami) was a true gentlemen and great driver-guide for our entire trip! If you want to see a lot of Madagascar in 2 weeks then this is the tour for you. If however, you have the money, and time to take 3 extra days then I would advise it as it would allow…
1 extra day in Palmarium Reserve or Ranomafana (tropical rainforests where there are many beautiful animals to see).
1 extra day in Isalo national park to do more hiking in the beautiful mountainous terrain.
And 1 more day to relax by the beach in Ifaty.
But for those with just 2 weeks to explore this unique island I highly recommend going with Malagasya Travel. You’ll be in safe hands with their brilliant staff!

I really appreciate that Malagasya had worked out a good itinerary, and most importantly had assigned a great driver (Mr. Jocelyn) for me.
I had a unforgettable tour, and looking forward to return to Madagascar to explore other part of it. This country is filled with tonnes of hidden gems.

When contacting Malagasya Travel, I was surprised by their friendliness and agility. I entered the Safari Booking website, filled out a form and in less than 24 hours the Riantsoa travel agent contacted me to understand in detail what I wanted. We put together a wonderful personalized itinerary that fully met my expectations! On the day of my arrival, I was greeted by them with an invitation to have dinner to get to know each other. It was a pleasant surprise for me.
During the whole trip I was very well assisted by all the places I went! The trip was wonderful and everything went according to plan.
Without a doubt, I highly recommend the company and will certainly make new trips with them!
