Pros: Lemur park and Geyser are quite some unique experience. Could count as some of the best places we have been in Madagascar. So if we have the choice again we will definitely do it. The local guides in Geyser was very good despite we had quite a language barrier, they tired their best to make sure we were safe and happy. La Terasse was one of the best meal we had. Cons: Our driver only speaks very limited English, the local guide only speaks French, so we usually don't known how long we needed to walk or how's the road condition before we get off our car. We were confused about the arrangement at times as well. La Chute de La Lilly is quite a beautiful waterfall but is not as unique, still worth spotting it as it is close to the hotel anyway. However on the evening when we visited it the weather was not quite fine, it was raining and we could hear thunder approaching even saw lighting from a distance when we almost returned. Which made walking around open rice fields, crossing a river that leads to the waterfall and walking on some slippery muddy road for almost 2 hours looked a bit unsafe. We made it without a scratch but I might not recommend you do it if you see a similar weather condition. Overall: Would be very much better with English speaking driver, the walk are very safe if weather is fine, but expect the need to walk quite some distances.

Our Driver /Guide 'Percy' was excellent, very knowledgeable about the area and spoke good English. The trip was wonderful an eye opening experience and worth the money for me.
