Jean Claude

Toliara ville, TOLIARA, Madagascar

Hello; My name is Jean Claude - I am a National tour guide in Madagascar and I am the first private tour guide organizer of the boat ride on Tsiribihina River.

I have had my license issued by Tourism Ministerium of Madagascar under n° 049/MCT/SG/DG/GUIDE LICENSE B since 2004.
I am recipient of 2005 (BID) Business Initiative Direction award in Spanish. The title of my prize is " arc of Europe for the quality and technology ".

My children and my wife always make me feel happy to encourage me to do and continue my job as a tour guide. I love my family, I love my Job and I love everyone who trusts my services as a private tour guide in Madagascar.

Currently, I am including visits of Tsingy of Bemaraha (in the north of Morondava city), Andasibe Park (in the east of Antananarivo the capital), Isalo National Park (in the middle south of Madagascar) and many others wonderful places and touristic attractions.

I am passionate about tourism activities. I love my country and I am keen to share what is best in it to every traveler from everywhere in the world.

Our country is very rich in fauna and flora, many of them are endemics in Madagascar.

For the fauna, you can find several species of lemurs, the biggest is the INDRI INDRI.

And for the flora, Madagascar is very popular about the amazing Baobab trees, there are many species of it ( the typical one is the bottle baobab). The Baobab alley in Morondava is the most attractive one.

I am very keen of telling about Madagascar story during my tours. The customers don't visit only those wonderful sites and places but they will also have the opportunity to learn about our life in detailS.

I am a very talkative boy but I control myself about what I say. I am smiling and I am friendly with all people.

My extensive experience guiding all over Madagascar makes me the ideal choice for your travels in this unique and awe-inspiring country.

I propose you multiple choices of tours, you can have a tour from 2 hours minimum up to 30 days maximum.

The means of transportation which I use during the tour depends mainly on the type of the tour and then the size of the group of traveler.

Thus, we may use a ground transportation such as a small car for 1 or 2 people only , a train, a mini-van, vehicle 4x4, a big van which can be fit to carry a group of traveler up to 10 people, motorized boat or rowing boat and a plane.

I encourage you to view my published tour offer and to contact me if you have any questions or if you require a customized service. Every single question or request will be answered in less than 24 HOURS.
I am always sincerely at your service.

The last but not least, please keep the following word when you are in Madagascar: MORAMORA.
This is the first Malagasy word I teach you. MORAMORA means Slowly in English, Lentement in French and Langsam in German.

In Madagascar, everything goes MORAMORA, So when you take a tour with me, short or long duration, we will never be in a hurry.

I look forward to being your local tour guide in Madagascar!
