I agreed the itinerary and booked the trip from Poland. Paid the price by money transfer. Arrived and then the exerience begun. The trip went along in a very smooth manner. All according to plan and this is not easy in "mora mora" country. Very positive experience and made me love this country. Was not very cheap but left me very satified which was an ultimate objective/ Very good proffesional guides. My full recommendation.

This is an unusual country to visit. We had the most wonderful time. Cactus Tours were amazing. Our driver Heri was also incredible. Saw some unusual fauna and flora. The roads are generally shocking but one gets used to this after a while.
Accommodation was very good and local guides excellent.

We just returned from an unforgettable 2week holiday around Madagascar with Cactus Tours. Rina was our main contact and helped customize an itinerary for us providing informative advice and a well-planned pace for the trip allowing us time to rest between long drives and hikes.

Our main guides/drivers Heri, Ludo, Farly, Jimmy and Michel were very experienced, entertaining and accommodating, ensuring our safety and giving us a full experience of the diversity in the country. We spotted many birds, lemurs and chameleon and even the Fosa on our many hikes through the National Parks and learnt about the history and culture of the people during the long drives between locations.

Accommodations varied between locations with a mix of luxury hotels, beach villas and comfortable lodges but as was the start of the summer months, some evenings in the west and south were rather warm without fan/air conditioning especially when the hotel generators were not working.

On our last leg of the trip, our noon flight back to the capital was delayed for 8hrs and Cactus Tours went out of their way to check on flights, arrange for documents and extended late checkout for our rooms. Our guide Heri also stayed with us at the airport till we finally departed and Cactus Tours also made additional arrangements for complimentary in room dining upon our late arrival as restaurants had closed. Much appreciated!

I would highly recommend visiting Madagascar with Cactus Tours as they are very professional, thoughtful and and the guides were passionate, responsible, accommodating and ensured our safety at every step of the way. What a beautiful experience in an amazing country.

We spent 3 weeks traveling in Madagascar and everything was arranged by Cactus Tours. Rina was our contact and she was very diligent about responding to all our emails during the planning process.

Once we were on the ground she met us at the beginning and the end of the trip which was great service. All of our drivers were very good and our guide Bruno was great.

Be warned that you will spend LOTS of time traveling to get from place to place in Madgascar but to Rina's credit she did let us know driving times and she made it clear that we needed to allocate a full day just for the unpredictable domestic flights which we did (and 2 of 3 flights were delayed).

Over all, I really recommend Cactus Tours. Not only are they a Madagascar based tour company so more of your money goes to the country, but they were also the cheapest estimate we received during planning. Plus, they took care of everything from the moment we got off our international flight to when we got back on 3 weeks later. Madagascar is NOT an easy country to travel in when it comes to logistics but Cactus Tours was spot on perfect for us.
