We did the half day charity tour with Giggling Gecko as we had read a little about the poverty on the island and wanted to give something back. We also felt it would be good for our kids. Discovered Giggling Gecko through Tripadvisor five star reviews and would wholeheartedly agree with them. Jen and driver Michel were absolutely first class. Jen is incredibly knowledgeable about the island (she is also very forgiving - especially of people who can't remember what time their tour started - sorry again Jen!!) and Michel appears to either know everyone or be related to everyone on Boa Vista. We went to a beautiful deserted beach, saw some very interesting road signs, visited the old town and met Sonia who runs the project un click per un sorriso which works with kids living in the barracks (slums) in Sal Rei. All I can say is please have a look at the website and take some bits and pieces with you. A little goes a long. way in Boa Vista and Sonia, Jen and Richard should be sainted for the work they do
