Friendly Planet surveyed their customer for their next cruise, and the winner is …
This one is a good news that we have to share with you all. Friendly Planet, an experienced US-based tour operator surveyed 7000 people in order to identify the next tour that they’ll organize for 2010, and 941 wanted to come to Madagascar, making our beautiful island the next destination for the customers of this tour operator who use to work with first class hotels.
Checking at their website, one can see how large their cruise offer is, and this Madagascar cruise tour seem to be a first for them. Let’s hope this Madagascar tour will be a standard offer on their package.
Quoting Friendly planet’s website
Because it is so remote, Madagascar is often overlooked as a tourist destination, but intrepid travelers are rewarded with an experience that cannot be duplicated anywhere else in the world. 150,000 species of plants and animals (including the Lemur) are found nowhere else on earth, making Madagascar is a true nature-lover’s paradise. And the Malagasy population is truly one-of-a-kind as well, a beautiful blending of many distinct cultures, including African, Asian, Arabian, French, Indian, Creole and more. If vacation for you means unique and unusual then Madagascar is the place for you!
We are very excited to get so soon into this project as most of the times we are only aware of a cruise arriving in Madagascar once they arrived. This will give us another perspective-from the tour operator side who organizes such cruises, but also, from the kind of information and level of services needed from local counterparts in Madagascar. Cruise will arrive in Madagascar in 2010, though we have almost a year to get ready on the Madagascar side.
What would you suggest those cruisers to see in Madagascar? Share your views and recommendations.
