Hery and Rindra were both born in Madagascar. Hery loves travelling and is passionate about showing the beauty of his country to the world. He worked has been a freelance tour guide since 2007, then in 2017 along with his two colleagues, he created Hanorah Travel, a Tour Company specialized in Tailor Made holidays in Madagascar. Hery's best memories as a tour guide, is when taking the tourists to the remote areas, showing them unique & amazing landscapes and of course all the endemic species of fauna and flora in Madagascar. Rindra loves travelling, discovering new places, learning new cultures and meeting people. As her professional path, it was very logical for her to pursue a career in the tourism sector. Thus after a MSC degree in Tourism, Environment and Development at Oxford Brookes, she took over the role of Marketing Development Executive at Madagascar Explorer where she gathered a wealth of experience. Then in 2020, she joined Hanorah Travel as an associate where she can continue her dream to show people from all over the world the unique beauty of her wonderful country and its people.

This tour was not at the planned location. At the beginning they said there was a last-minute reason why they couldn't do the tour there, but did not explain what it was. They said they were instead going to focus on gemstones from the area at one shop. That was not personally of interest to me so I left the tour (and wouldn't have booked it if that's what had been advertised), but I'm giving five stars as I didn't stay long so don't feel like it would be appropriate for me to give anything else.
