Blinky's Tours, Sal Cape Verde

I was very surprised to read a hotel review today to find someone complaining about Blinky's Tours. We used Blinky for The Island Tour on Sat 5th October and it was fantastic! She was very honest and informed the small group (6) that having checked that morning, we wouldn't be seeing the lemon sharks but would still have a fabulous tour which we did. Not only is she significantly cheaper than Thomsons, but keeps group numbers small and is very flexible with the itinerary. If we had stayed longer, we would definitely have done another trip with her. Highly recommended! There should be a section on 'Things To Do' for this tour organiser as she has many strings to her bow!

We met up with Blinky a number of times and we went on her Island tour with her lovely new sidekick Karamu, when we booked the tour she told us that the sharks had gone, she also gave us lots of information about the Island and provided us with lots of FUN FUN FUN.........Cant believe she has had a negative review, hope you are not too upset Blinky, We love you...... Love from the Old Gits xxxxxx

Hello All,

I totally agree with you all. I was shocked when I read the bad review about Blinkys Tours too. We have been twice this year and are going back in a weeks time. Each visit we use Blinky and have never been let down. We always have a fun trip with plenty of insight into the island and the local people. Her prices are definitely cheaper than Thompson and she is creating jobs for locals.

We have and will always recommend her and use her services each trip.

Been here for 3 wks out of 5 so far, and have heard nothing but good things about Blinkeys tours, and I'm in the town talking to people every day from different hotels etc.

Great tours at great prices - with the personal touch from Blinky herself. She takes out small groups (unlike other tour operators) at a fraction of the price; and as she lives on Sal (Cape Verde) she has extensive knowledge of the Island and is able to provide, not only excellent tours, but all all the information you need to go with them. I would highly recommend Blinky's Tours if travelling to Cape Verde. You will NOT be disappointed. ;) x
