If you are going to Madagascar - go with Rija tours

In 2007 I took my honeymoon in Madagascar with Rija tours. Randomly found Rija on the internet and had a wonderful two weeks. Rija is kind, knowledgeable, helpful and safe, I couldn't recommend him more. Just hooked up with him again on facebook and will be planning to take my young family back in a few years time. I strongly feel your tourist dollars would be better spent with local guides actually from Madagascar not with International agencies and Rija will give you a welcome like no other.

Do these tour companies require deposits, and what would be an acceptable amount? The tours I am seeking do not require airline reservations, but do include hotels.

thank you,

We gave a credit card deposit on ours with cactus and then final payment shortly before arrival.
