This was a lovely tour and David was very nice and gave basic details out about the island and Cape Verde. The Salt Flats were fantastic but ensure you take off an jewellery which isn't gold or platinum otherwise it discolours. At some places (e.g. Telecom Tower) we spent too long whereas we felt we could have spent longer at... More

A good day out to see the sights, just a little too warm!!! Be prepared for a bumpy ride in parts. Beach visit and visit to the ruins of the boats was amazing.

Not very good value for money. Not a lot to see, only a rusty old shipwreck, and lots of rock and sand. One small village and lots more rocks.

even though tourism has just started on the island of Boa Vista in Cape Verde, various organised tours would be on offer if you want to visit further afield . stayed on a 7 day all inclusive package at the Riu Touareg, love the beach but love to discover and meet the locals. the tours were the perfect way to...

The full catarmaran excursion could have been easily done in half a day, thereby making the cost of said excursion cheaper.

Taking a tour of both the north and the South Island are a must. The island is very sparse but you get to see how the people live, and how progression is being made. It is a very poor island and it make s you feel very humbled especially when you arrive back at what would be to the islanders... More
