Thanks to everyone at Reef and Rainforest for making our holiday so memorable. I came home feeling like we had great experiences in Madagascar and that our itinerary had been really well planned to ensure we saw a great variety of what the country is about. Ian and the team were fantastic while we were away in fixing the one small issue we had but then ensuring we had day use of the hotel in Tulear, that we were on time for the plane and in upgrading some of our accommodation. The attentiveness of the company while we were away was really unusual for a tour company and showed how much you care about ensuring people have a truly great holiday.
