Superb view on Tana. Historical place. Can be crowdy during week-end or on public holidays. The road to the place is as interesting as the place itself. Ex-royal family houses can still be seen, even though not well preserved

A great site of interest. Just a shame it is a ruin. Apparently the money that was put aside / donated for its restoration never materialised.

I haven't been inside the palace. But outside of the palace, there is a kind of view spot, and it has wonderful view around Tana.

The burned out palace sits in the top spot overlooking all of Antananarivo. The palace and royal compound are much larger than I expected. It is a great pity that this complex was so badly damaged in the fire. Even so, it is still an...More

I've read a lot of complaints regarding this visit. Now there are some fixed prices written on arrival. So it shouldn't be a problem. 10000 ar/ per head and 20000 for an obligatory guide. Our guide wasn't really fluent in English but with a mix...More

The Queen's Palace seems to be one of the few historical things available in Antananarivo at this time. The site is small but a worthwhile introduction to the history of Madagascar. We hired a guide, Florida, at the gate and the 20,000A on top of...More
