Grâce à Admilson Garcia et ses formidables guides, Maria et Ayton, nous avons passé un séjour extraordinaire en famille, riche de partage et de découvertes.
Leur précieuse et chaleureuse présence nous a permis de découvrir l’île de Santiago de manière la plus typique qu’il soit. Nous y avons fait de magnifiques et vertigineuses randonnées avec des paysages à couper le souffle. Sans parler du Pico do Fogo, un autre moment fort de notre voyage merveilleusement bien accompagnés par deux autres supers guides de montagne recommandés par Admilson, Nezito et Belmir.
Admilson est très disponible et a répondu à toutes nos questions avant et pendant le voyage avec beaucoup de sérieux et de réactivité. Grâce à cette belle organisation, nous repartons du Cap vert avec des souvenirs plein la tête et des étoiles plein les yeux ! 🌴🌋🍀☀️💚
