Why choose us
We are a Malagasy tour operator based in Antananarivo the capital city of Madagascar. We have been on the tourism business for 14 years and have worked 100% Malagasy employee.
The people who know best
We have just returned from our trip to Madagascar which we partly
organised through Belaza from Gassitours, a very nice and
entrepreneurial guy. We would happily reccomend him to anyone who
wants to see Madagascar!
He and his driver Alan drove us around for a
couple days, organised everything inclusing really nice and
interesting english spreaking guides. Belaza was very flexible when we
wanted to change the itinary during the trip, and when the car broke
down they went out of their ways to make sure we could continue
without any delay.
He and Allan are also fun company which contributed
to a really easy going trip. He told us that he plans on staying a
small company, but one which can deliver great experiences. For our
experience, this was comepletely true!
We booked the Tsiribihina Tour and the visit of the Tsingy National
Park. Belaza was our guide during the 5 day trip. He is a very nice
guy and he answered all of our questions to his knowledge.
He provides a lot of information about Malagasy culture and translates the name of
every little village we went through. During the river descent he
worked tirelessly: paddling, cooking, preparing of tents and late
night entertainment (some drinks to bring the beautiful day to its
end). He speaks English very well, if you he’s not speaking
French…(he does this too, of course). These trips were organized
very well, and met my expectation perfectly.
During this time I found Belaza’s service outstanding in many ways; he
was always on time, his English was excellent and I found Belaza
always willing to add extra value to our tour to make it the best.
Belaza would negotiate with guides, co-ordinate our accommodation and
even cook during our river trip, of which, he handled with ease.
The specialty of Belaza is his knowledge of the Malagasy culture and
the flora and fauna within the areas we visited. In particular, Belaza
took my partner and I to see real Malagasy culture, in his own time, I
was very impressed with his dedication. I have travelled to over 30
countries and had many guides; I would rate Belaza as one of the best.
