Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "Rwanda and Malawi were excellent- Madagascar great experience but too much hard work and stress!"
 
Tribes Service: "Very helpful people , paperwork not always accurate. Beautiful book, quite a lot of typos in it! "
 
Guides: "Again this varied. Rwanda and Malawi everyone was really helpful and nearly everything of a really good standard. Madagascar nobody really had English that was good enough to cope. The drivers tried hard and their driving was good. "
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Good"
