We very much enjoyed our three week tour of Madagascar in September 2006. Earlier in the year we had provided Benjamin with our "ideal itinerary" with a list of accommodations and National Parks that we wanted to visit and he did a splendid job in organising everything. Having a local agent in Madagascar to arrange things is very important as communications from outside Madagascar can be frustratingly slow and difficult if you do not speak French as we do not. Benjamin and our our driver greeted us on arrival at Tana in the early hours of the morning and after a briefing we were off! Everything went like clockwork and our drivers (Miza and Baba) were very knowledgeable and helpful. We can thoroughly recommend Benjamin to arrange a memorable tour of Madagascar.

Even to hardened African travellers, madagascar is a hard country to organise tours in. Many times the guide books are not updated (even the latest versions); the emails do not work ("address unknown") or the emails do not get any reply at all. Some replies arrive, but in french, of which my knowledge is limited. We found Come-Mada tours through one of the multiple internet searches we conducted when we were planning our trip last year, a one month trip though September into october 2006. His web site is informative, and the emails are always responded to very promptly, often in hours, and in good English. The tours offered are a good selection of those availible in Madagascar, now even hinting at Masoala. We ended up doing Three of out four tours with Come-mada East to perinet and onto Tamatave, (very recomended, west to morandava (Tsingy a must do, but maybe fly in), North east to Ampijora (excellent, but maybe drive there), and was very satisfied with all aspects. The drivers arrived timeously, could mostly speak english, and helped us wherever we were. The itineries were adapted to our specific requirements and the prices quite acceptable. Madegascar is a hard destination to plan. Benjamin offers you an accessible way to do it without going to the big tour companies that do not offer anything other than an doubling of the price. Well done Benjamin, a good operation, that deserves support. If you have specific questions send me a short email. phil

Dear Benjamin, thank you very much for organizing our 3 weeks trip to Madagascar in September/October. Everything worked perfectly and we enjoyed our stay a lot. Also the combination with the Fischerhaus (www.fischerhaus.net) of Colin was perfect for us - having an "anchor" during our tours in Antananarivo. Warm regards from Germany, Ilka & Jens

In october 2006 we took a two week tour with Visit Mada tours including the South Tour and had the perfect trip. Benjamin adapted the tour to our needs and all the things agreed with our expectations. Our driver Dinah (sorry if the spelling is wrong) did the best job - always focusing on our needs, driving with care and telling original, personal stories. Since it is so difficult to find a reliable tour company on the internet, we want to give our full support to benjamin and the employees at visit mada tours. And now in Danish; Vi anbefaler alle at tage med visit Mada Tours. De s�rger for at bes�get til den fantastiske � bliver en uforglemmelig oplevelse. Cheers, Kira and Thomas, Denmark

Having Benjamin organising my time in Madagascar was the best decision I had ever taken. The boat trip was fantastic, and travelling by car with my English speaking driver Dyna (arranged by Benjamin)made my journey in Madagascar the best one I ever had. Dyna was always there to give advise, translate, interpret and helped me to save money (by recommending restaurants, guides and hotels) and to understand this beautiful country and its people. For single female travellers; Dyna is the most trustworthy and professional driver on the island. I owe them a big THANK YOU for everything they did for me. I will definitly go back to Madagascar and travel with them again.

We have just returned from a two week visit to Madagascar. Before we went I corresponded with Benjamin by email and worked out what sort of trip we wanted. Mike, my husband and I had been to Madagascar twice before, once with an organised group (which we hated) and the second time by ourselves, we just booked our international flight and organised everything else when we got there. This time with the help of Benjamin we had things prepared for us when we arrived. The drivers and guides which Benjamin had organised were helpful and professional. We had a great time, this time travelling wiht our two teenage sons - a great introduction to a fantastic country. I know that arranging a tour via the internet always carries the possibility of things going wrong. Benjamin was a truly professional tour operator. We highly recommend him. Already we are planning our next trip. Best wishes Benjamin and thank you to all who looked after us on our trip. Bea, Mike, Sean and Bobby from London

Hello from Spain!! We are back home and want to thank you for your help and good work during our visit to your fantastic country!!!! Our guide Olivier and the pirogue drivers down the Tsiribina were incredible people, and took care of us really professionaly. We had a great time enjoying the beautifull views of the river and meeting the extraordinary local people.

Hallo Benjamin, jetzt muss ich mich auch einmal in dein G�stebuch eintragen. Wir vom FISCHERHAUS in Antananarivo vermitteln dich immer wieder gerne an unsere G�ste. Man h�rt immer nur Lob �ber die Durchf�hrung deiner Touren. Unsere G�ste sind bisher sehr zufrieden mit deinem Angebot und der guten Betreuung. Und wie ich dich kenne wird das auch in Zukunft so bleiben. Auf weiterhin gute Zusammenarbeit. Vince

Tja, was soll ich �ber den Benjamin sagen; Bin absolut gut bedient worden, es blieben keine W�nsche offen. Ich war November 2004 f�r fast vier Wochen in Madagaskar und in der ganzen Zeit unter Benjamins bew�hrten Fittichen, war alles super organisiert und hat - eigentlich unvorstellbar dort! - alles minuzi�s hingehauen. Im September 2006 fahre ich wieder hin, nat�rlich wieder organisiert von Mr. Benjamin. (Kleine Schleichwerbung am Rande; beste Kombination zum kennenlernen von Madagaskar ist Hotel Fischerhaus in Tana plus Mr. Benjamin)
