Trip Report 2019.

My name is Brilland Andriamirindra but everyone calls me Bryan.
I’m the owner of the small tour guide company Madacartour. I’m sorry to put this trip report of the year with so much advance. I would like to wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. I’ll be on a tour and I have only few time to write this letter.

Thank you!

First of all, I want to thank everyone who has chosen Madacartour. You have helped a little local company instead of travelling with a big one. That helps us a lot. Maybe you travelled with me or some driver guide, but I did tried to organize everything and be there all the time to keep everything neat, for you to have “the best tour ever”.
Thanks to you and all the drivers who helped us during this year. We tour all around Madagascar from January to December non stop. Every tour was individually preplanned depending on your time, things that you wanted to do and trying to fit your budget as much as possible. We had great experiences together, if you hadn’t put your review on trip advisor yet, please do so, that helps us a lot. 😀

Please leave your review on Trip Advisor here.

We need travelers reviews.

And travelers need them as well. They won’t know how much we love our work and how good we are at it without reviews, and that helps us and them a lot. Maybe you left something on our Facebook Page or send a message by our Instagram, but if you can help us copying it and pasting it on trip advisor would be much appreciated.

About 2020.

Next year we’ll try to do better. We’ll do some improvements on accommodations and training more local guides. I’ll be training myself as well.
Right now I’m on an expedition tour with Big Fish Expeditions, Andy Murch is the owner, who is the first and the biggest shark photographer in the world. He also is a mammal watcher, and as you know, Madagascar is really rich in mammals and primates. So here he relates perfectly with his passion. I’ve learned a lot with him and Laura, his wife. So I’m pretty sure that this experience will help Madacartour in 2020.

We had different guests during this year, German, Italian, Canadian, from the United States, French, Russian, Indian, Saudi Arabian, Chinese, South African, Spanish and I’m sure there are some more that at this time I may not remember. One language brings one culture and different points of view so thank you guys for your visit cause we had great time together and personally, I appreciated our time together. If you want to come back to Madagascar visiting some places that you didn’t visit yet or bringing some group of friends or just meeting friends, just send me a WhatsApp maybe we’ll have the opportunity to meet one day .
