While I had a broad idea of what I wanted to do [with the help of an excellent Bradt guide book]; Jeremia from Lemur Tour provided some very practical input into the itinerary. I made it clear that we were not looking for 5 star luxury but wanted an adventure tour focussing on natural beauty and fauna and flora, that's exactly what we got. All accommodation was clean and hospitable. The vehicle was comfortable and the driving reassuring. We started in Tana at a very comfortable hotel , travelled via Antisirabe to Ranamafana rain forest to walk among the lemurs, seeing various unique creatures and vegetation. Other highlights were Camp Catta, Isolo Park, Ifaty, Kavitah/Ampefy. Our driver/guides were very concerned about our welfare at all times and spoke good english. They communicated well to give us a good understanding of the culture and the environment; enjoyable companions. All our expectations were met and we had a wonderful trip. Thanks to Jeremia and Vonjy and the local guides. Les & Cyndy

We were looking for a travel agency to organise our honeymoon and found Lemur Tours. In short: It was perfectly organised, our driver Christian was fantastic and both, Jeremia and Christian, showed the most personal effort to make everything possible. We contacted Jeremiah via his homepage and just had some basic wishes (3 weeks journey in November 2019; approx 2 weeks round trip on the island and some days relaxing at a beach, love hiking, not changing hotels every night..). Jeremia (he speaks german fluently) reacted instantly (within 24 hours on a weekend) and proposed already an itinary. He was very flexible and open to our ideas but also gave us his honest opinion if he thought that during that time of the year when we visited this or that place would be less/more beautiful. Also, when our flight dates from Europe to Madagascar changed, he instantly adapted the itinary accordingly. Before our arrival in Madagascar we only transferred a deposit and paid the remaining amount upon our arrival in EUR - and everything was surprisingly easy and without any problems. Jeremia himself picked us up at the Airport, showed us the best place to change money directly there and discussed the whole journey in the hotel and patiently answered all our questions. On the next day he gave us a city tour in Tana and spontanously (as we had time left until the departure of our flight to Toliary) made an excursion to the Rova outside of Tana - which was really a highlight! When we landed in Toliary, Christian (who spoke excellent English) awaited us there with the 4x4 and spent the next 2 weeks with us. He was not only a driver, but became a very close companion during this time. He knew a lot and gave us a lot of insights on the people, life and culture of Madagascar, that made our experience so special (so we stopped several times a day and tried the most exotic fruits, he showed us cinnamon trees, vanilla & pepper plants, lemurs in wild life etc.) Christian personally cared about everything to make our journey perfect (eg we had some medicine that steadily needed to be cooled) and even was available during his free time for any spontaneous drives. Also, Jeremia was available 24/7 during our journey via whatsapp and made the impossible possible to make up for our own mistakes (we forgot some cables in a hotel, Jeremia organised that we got them only two days later in our next hotel). We also realized the luck we had with Jeremia & Christian, as in all the national parks we visited, we had the feeling that we had the most competent and best guides (compared to other tourists), who know almost everything we asked and discovered even the most hidden Lemurs before the other ones. All in all, Madagascar was a very special journey to us that we will always remember. And to a very big part we owe it to Jeremia & Christian, who made it so very special. For those interested in numbers: Compared to tour operators from Western Europe (Germany, Austria), Lemur Tours was not at all more expensive; on the contrary, those journeys would have been group journeys, whereas we had a private tour with Christian.

Lemur Tours is the ideal way to see Madagascar for the first time. The owner Jeremia was efficient, communicative, and professional, and my driver Mampionona was super friendly and a great driver. The tours and hotels were also wonderful. Madagascar can be difficult to navigate on your own, but Lemur Tours made it safe and simple. Jeremia will customize a trip for you based on your interests, time and budget. Don't hesitate to sign up for one of his trips.

My wife and I were planning a safari trip to Southern Africa when we decided to add Madagascar to our adventure. And we are extremely happy we did! After some online research and reading reviews, we got in touch with Lemur Tours. Jeremia got back to us right away and was very helpful in planning our itinerary. Most importantly, he listened carefully and helped us find what we wanted. This did take 40 or so emails back & forth! but was well worth it. Jeremia himself met us at the airport and took us to our hotel for the night. The next morning he introduced us to our driver/guide, Christian, and we set off for our first destination, stopping to see chameleons and other reptiles along the way. It was so helpful to have a reliable, knowledgeable person with us the entire trip especially to do the driving on the “challenging” roads. Christian also organized excellent local guides at each place we went. We stayed at two lodges that Jeremia recommended, both of which were wonderful. We saw an amazing variety of birds, chameleons, and of course, lemurs!! The most special was seeing and photographing the extremely rare aye-aye lemur. Overall, we were extremely happy with Lemur Tours and the service we received from Jeremia and Christian. We would recommend this company to anyone going to Madagascar.
