Conception and Tours design departement
A Belgian who fell in love with Madagascar during a mission he did in Madagascar in October 2007. A licensed airline pilot and aviation engineer, specialised in aerial photography, he worked in 30 different countries with his aircraft before he decided to settle in Madagascar and join Island Continent Tours as Hely’s partner in life and business. Franz’s contribution to the company is great with his very high standards (because of his previous job). He is demanding in the quality of our offer and mainly the security of customers. He has the mindset of the “Western tourist” which makes him the quality control inside the company.
After leading Dutch, Belgian, German, Austrian groups, he has seen the whole Madagascar: roads, lodges and hotels, parks, guides, transport. The different trips with different nationalities helped him to get an immediate feedback and reaction from customers, allowing him to change, rectify and adapt or cancel the products. also to check all accommodations, parks, guides and above all to get accurate customers’ feed-back
Hely and Franz’s job at Exclusive Madagascar Tours is to talk and listen to the clients’ wish then, they conceive and tailor exclusive itinerary and discuss with customers until their requirement is met. They will also choose the transport, select the best guide, and check all the operations during customers’ holidays, make sure that everything runs as planned.
They hand over the agreed itinerary to the production department for a quote and booking who will make a permanent report and feed-back to him. They are the interlocutor between Exclusive Madagascar Tours and the client and will permanently discuss and exchange with them.
Franz’s favourite: doing a multi-day trip by motorbike all over Madagascar.
