Maria, United States

We were in Nord Madagascar last year for honeymoon, it was an amazing journey. Everything was perfect, from guides (very pleasant and italian spoken very very well) to tours, to hotel and restaurants. We did a lot of very interesting visits: red and grey tsingy, spices fields, forests, wonderful beaches, quad tour....I can suggest Madaways to everyone! Read more
