Would highly recommend Richard and Jenny for local tours on Boa Vista. They are well established and do a fantastic job helping the local communities also. Very professional and know the island really well now. Also recommend Elcibar on Cabral Beach for day and evening meals and drinks in fantastic settings. This is where we saw the whales from standing... More

My friend my daughter and I did the African night on a Saturday evening at a lovely beach bar. This was a great evening and was good to meet and chat to others from the hotel. It was about an hours drive from the Riu Tourareg but were collected and taken back as part of the evening. Cocktails were €5... More

We shared a quad, and went through local area to a local town for a pit stop. The local stalls are ready and waiting and pounce on you! We... More

We visited several beaches, including the famous wreck, a Cape Verdean village and the capital, Sal Rei as well as the desert. A lovely lunch is included in the price... More

I opted for the all day excursion and I was absolutely thrilled with the experience. Richard picked us up outside our hotel and we joined a group of 3 more couples. Richard was very informative and answered all questions we asked. His passion for the island shines through and he made the whole day enjoyable. A really nice meal on... More

We did the South Island tour first - relaxed pace - Jen has great knowledge of the island, its people and the natural environment. Balance was just right. I then did the Quad bike North Island tour - Nice small group. Jamie was very safety orientated (in a good way!) - a great way to see the real island -... More
