What Our Clients Say

'Hi Derek,. We just wanted to say a big thank you for organising our wonderful honeymoon in Mauritius. We had the most amazing time (and wish we were still there!) Both hotels were beautiful and great picks - 20 Degres Sud was a lovely, relaxed start to the holiday with amazing service and a nice, chilled vibe. And LUX Belle Mare was just spectacular - outstanding service, incredible facilities and absolutely delicious food!! We were delighted also that the hotels were Mauritian owned companies, so thank you for that. . The Mautourco company who looked after us on the ground were brilliant too, keeping us organised with our tours and pick-up times, etc.! . All in all, we had the most fabulous experience, completely stress-free from start to finish, so thanks again for everything. We will definitely recommend Rainbow Tours to friends and family, and look forward to hopefully booking travel with you again in future! Kind regards,. Margaret and Julian'.

'Hi Helen,. Thank you very much for your email, and even more for setting us up for such an amazing honeymoon. We loved staying at Andasibe Hotel (and we really liked Maison Gallieni too). The local guide in Madagascar, Dennis, was excellent, and so was the driver. We would thoroughly recommend them to anyone going there. Dennis is extremely knowledgeable, and provided us guidance on what we could have done in the park while leaving us time and space for us to make up our own mind on what would work best for us. Unfortunately having only two full days to spend in the area meant that we could not visit the Mantadia park, also because the quickest road leading there has been badly damaged by the cyclone and access was very difficult. Going back in time we would probably like to spend another day there, but this is our fault... We loved the excursions in the Andasibe park both during the day and at night, and we got to see two Indri families and several Sifaka from a close distance. Thank you for flagging up the tree planting activities organised by Mitsinjo: we felt it was a really worthwhile cause, and we think this should really be promoted among tourists going to Andasibe. On the way back to Tana before taking the flight to Mauritius, Dennis also made sure that we could spend some time in a souvenir shop, so that we could get something for friends and relatives. As for Mauritius, Trou aux Biches is fabulous, and thank you for recommending it to us! The beach is stunning, and so are the scenery and the food. The beach would be even better if they managed to move the motor boats away, as one local beach vendor told us they are already planning to do, as they are quite noisy and tend to run pretty close to the swimming area. Overall, we are extremely happy with Rainbow Tours: it was the first time ever we were travelling with a travel agency, and we could not have hoped for a better experience. We have already recommended it to some friends, and we will keep doing so whenever the opportunity arises. Needless to say, we will get in touch when we plan our next long-distance trip. Thank you again for your guidance and assistance. Best wishes,. Roberto & Daniela'. .

Mr and Mrs Roccu

'Hi Fiona,. Our holiday was perfect, thank you. All the transfers and timings etc were spot on and the representatives at both locations were great. The hotels were incredible, we would definitely return to either of them.. If we were to go to Reunion again we would definitely? take some hiking gear as some of the most beautiful parts of the island are only accessible on foot.. Thank you for your help with everything. Max' .

'Overall holiday satisfaction: excellent. Vakona Forest Lodge excellent in all respects; facilities good. Paradise Cove is a lovely place'. .

Mr Fitt and Ms Giglio

'Craig Kaufman was amazingly helpful. He organised our holiday to Madagascar and Mauritius at very very short notice. We thought Vakona Forest Lodge provided excellent accommodation. Having stayed in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest with accommodation provided by local tribes we are very aware that there are different standards in a rainforest to a conventional hotel. We werevery comfortable and happy there. The trips were wonderful and we saw many varieties of lemur. If people went there and expected luxury lodges they may have been disappointed. We expected exactly what we got which was excellent for a rainforest and I would imagine the very best in the area. Some people have unrealistic expectations. . Best wishes and thank you Craig for organising a wonderful trip. . Karen and Martin Perrett.

Mauritius gave us the perfect beach break after a safari in Sabi Sands. It’s so easy to relax with everything on tap at the Shanti Maurice. The food at was delicious, the beach gorgeous and the whole way everything was presented was really stylish.

F Silva

All the family loved our hotel [Belle Mare Plage] and it was just right for our elderly parents too. Just the sunny break we all needed with so many activities and also perfect if we just wanted to lie on the beach. .
