We had a great day out with Richard and Michel his driver on an all day tour. We were picked up exactly on time at our hotel and spent a really enjoyable day with 6 other lovely people visiting beautiful beaches, the desert, a remote village in the hills and some area of Sal Rei ending up at an idyllic beach bar eating delicious food. The food was so good we went on another tour for an evening trip to the same beach bar - and had a really enjoyable evening!
As other reviewers have said Richard and Jen offer a really personal and friendly service taking you to places of Boa Vista that you would never be able to reach on your own or in a large tour bus. They really go out of their way to help make sure that you enjoy the tour and the small size of the group means that you get a chance to find out so much about the island as you can ask questions at any time - you also make some new friends!
Lots of luck Richard and Jen - you deserve to succeed!

Despite having started only 6 months ago Richard and Jen run an efficient, friendly and enjoyable service. We did the half day tour and the beach bar night out. Both were great fun. The driver, Michel, speaks little English but his smile is eloquent in any language. Giggling Gecko offers a cheaper and more personal service than the "official" Thomson trips. So get online and book them.

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 :-)
