Has anyone used them recently? I've done some searches on this board, and it looks like thit_cho used them at some point, and that ijkh used them (at least once in the country). For anyone who did use them, did you deal with anyone in particular there? (I presume I would be working with people from their US office.)

By way of background, we're planning 2 or 3 weeks in Madagascar before our 2-3 month Africa extravaganza. I had originally planned on doing 2 weeks of an Earthwatch project in Madagascar, followed by about five days on our own, but my wife has now read the description of the Earthwatch project, and is less than enthused (although that could always change). Plan B! Which appears to be maybe two weeks of exploring Madagascar on our own (albeit presumably with a guide, at least where necessary). I've look at the Cortez Travel website, which is helpful, but a bit overwhelming, given all the possibilities. I could also have AAC help plan this portion of our trip (they're handling the rest of the Africa arrangements), but I'm not sure how much they really specialize in Madagascar (I suspect not much). Thanks for the advice.
