We had a wonderful experience touring the Rova in Antananarivo because of the expertise and passion of our guide, Martin. A highly informed student of history, Martin could answer every question we asked about the cultural, political and architectural history of this magnificent monument in the capital city of Madagascar. His passion and enthusiasm for his country and its people made him a joy to be with for the entire tour. We highly recommend you seek out Martin as your guide when touring Antananarivo and other regions of Madagascar.

We did a great two-day visit with GMT+3 tours and were very happy. Anja, the owner, was super helpful and responsive and his prices were reasonable. Our guide Patrice in Andasibe was amazing and everyone should request him as the local tour guide. The lemurs, frogs, chamelons, and other animals we saw were spectacular.

Highly recommended tour company and visit to Andasibe (a must for lemur watching!).

We spent a wonderful 30 days completely looked after by this superb Company of great people. Their knowledge and absolute care made what could have been a difficult undertaking as we tried to see everything instead one of complete confidence and success. We four had a superb trip...whenever other forces ....like Air Madagascar......looked like interfering with well laid plans GMT+3 was there with an instant remedy which ensured that we were back on track in no time at all with nothing lost and indeed, the remedies themselves actually added to our experience and enjoyment. The deep knowledge both culturally and enviromentally meant that we travelled through villages and forests in a state of enlightenment and understanding which will stay with us all forever. The Malagasy people are kind and hard working and deserving of whatever we can do to ease their way through to a pathway which will give them education, health and freedom from poverty.

GMT-3 exceeded all expectations, from timely email responses to Anja's help and support to make the trip a smooth one....we went to Tsingi Forest in the west (etc) to Ranomafaro (etc) in the South and the rainforests in the east. Martin knew people everywhere and our guide & Driver have a wonderful personalities. Our driver (Tony) was quite professional...I am the nervous sort when others drive, but after roughly a total of 50-60 hours in the car over the 16 days with Tony, Tony proceeded quickly and quite safety....he had excellent judgement on the curvy and treacherous roads in Madagascar where lots of passing is required too...how to pass safely is a critical factor due to people/animals and trucks. Martin was with us on every walk in every National park and was extremely helpful and arranged things to suit our ever-changing schedule and needs. We can't say enough about these two guys!!! Thank you so much GMT-3 for helping to make such life-long memories of Madagascar. People that go first need to do research in each area they plan to go to (accommodation choices via Lonely Planet etc) and the parks they wish to see, and then leave it up to Martin and Tony to "make it happen"

Had some contact with Anja (owner) before we arrived in Madagascar. He was really helpfull via email with the advice and planning. We only confirmed very last minute (since we were not sure how our trip would go) and he was very flexible in organising a good car and driver last minute. We met our driver, Radu, who picked us up from the airport. Car was in good condition. Radu was really nice and helpfull guy. He helped us with hotel reservations and gave advice about nice places to go (and knew a lot of good guides). He was very flexible and knew a lot about the country. He drove carefully but not slow, which was great.
We travelled with him for 9 days (from Tana, via Andasive, to Tulear). If you want to rent a car and driver this is the company to go to.
