Fantastic tours, Jen and Richard are great, really personal service and made the holiday for us.

Also helped my, now, fiance by arranging a birthday/suprise proposal at the fantastic Morabeza beach bar.

Highly recommended!

E-mailed them before we went on holiday to book a big game fishing trip but they did not reply to me. Tried to get on the only Thomson trip but that was cancelled due to bad weather.

We went to Cape Verde in October (yes I know that this is a little late for review - sorry guys). My husband booked a half day tour with Giggling Gecko's and we had no idea what to expect - but to say the hours that we spent with Jen and Richard were absolutely fantastic is an understatement. Their knowledge about the island is second to none, they are both really lovely people and really make you feel welcome. The beaches are beautiful and the beach bar at the end of the day is like something out of a movie. Guy's thank you so much for time that you spent with both of us it was brilliant and we are both looking forward to coming back next year and will definately bring more Dentastixs :-)

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

When we tried to book the island tour online the day we chose was full. Jen juggled things around and fitted us in for another day which wasn't easy as we only had a week there. What a knowledgable person Jen is. She knew everything about the island its people and infra structure. Its a new business and Jen and Richard deserve every success.
When I looked at previous reviews I thought it unusual every review was rated excellent. After going on the trip I now know why.
Thanks Jen for making our 50th anniversary so special.
