    We did our trip with Kapverden Tours yesterday to Tarrafal and Assomada Market and we loved each minute of the day-trip. Our Guide Emanuel was very professional he know a lot about Santiago, told us about his own experience as local and at the end invited us for a coffee with his family.
    We strongly recomend this tour with Emanuel.

    It was our first time in CV. We chose Santiago because of the variety of nature that can be found there. We didn't search after beaching and sunbathing. The tour of the whole island with Nelson was the bull's eye: we went to Citade Velha the first day, then tour through the central part of Santiago to Tarrafal (with some swimming in there), and since it took us too much time to enjoy all of the attractions, we decided on the next, shorter tour along the coast. Nelson is a tactful and patient person and a careful driver. We couldn't have seen that much and that safely without an organized trip. I'd definitely recommend taking such a tour if you want to sightsee, learn about the history of the archipelago, take pictures and feel safe.
    The only drawback was a non-air-conditioned vehicle of Nelson's. However it was bearable to ride with the windows open.

    Edmilson has been very kind and careful in driving me around the Island stopping any time I asked for.
    Also some places are not to miss on this day tour: Assomada, Tarrafal, Serra de Malagueta, Rabaledos village and all the glimpes of rural areas and people along the route.
    Do not forget to take a look at Pico de Antonia silhouette on the way back to Praia when the sun is about to set.

    A fantastic trek in Serra Malagueta with breathtaking landscapes! The beach in Tarrafal is incredibly beautiful! Our guide Djebril was amazing! He was a very kind and generous guide. He didn't hesitate to assist us in booking our boat to Fogo and even drove us early the next morning. Thanks to the whole team and thank you, Djebril! It was absolutely stunning

    It’s very rare that my expectations are exceeded, but in this case it’s no exaggeration to say that the BU Country team in Cabo Verde have way exceeded my expectations. My first experience with them was in April 2022 for my first trip to Cabo Verde and they were so spectacular that it encouraged me to take a second trip to Cabo Verde this past August and September.
    The first trip they organized for me was done within very short timeframes . I made up my mind at the last minute that I was going to go to Cabo Verde! I wanted to do all the things that CV is famous for: beaches , sea life, hiking volcanos, live music, history, culture etc. All within a 10 day period!!! They quickly came up with a plan for me and arranged for everything: my tickets for the planes and for the ferries, the pickups at each location , the individual guides, etc… They told me of the best places to stay in Cabo Verde and it was all done very quickly ,
    efficiently, very cost-effectively.
    But that’s not the best part . It’s when things go wrong that you get a true measure of people’s capacities. Near the end of my trip, my ferry to Fogo was canceled at the last minute and I was stranded at the port in Praia. I let the BU team know and my guide Alfonso came to pick me up at the port and the team arranged for an overnight hotel stay and dealt with getting new tickets for my next day’s trip to Fogo and worked out all the other details. They took care of everything and I didn’t have to worry very much about anything at that point. The next day another tour was arranged for me to Cidade Velhe because Alfonso could tell that this was something I would enjoy. As a Haitian descendant of Africans from this part of the world, it was especially meaningful.
    The owner of BU Country, Admilson is really hands-on, warm , knowledgeable and personable.
    All that made it really easy to choose to go back to Cabo Verde again for my summer vacation and it was spectacular. Once again I worked with the BU country team to arrange for flights and ferries . And this time when my flight to Fogo was cancelled at the last minute, Admilson got on the phone with me right away, told me about my options , booked me on the next ferry that was going to Praia and then the next one headed to Fogo. There was a bit of drama as I missed the connection to Fogo and Admilson himself came to pick me up at the Praia port at two in the morning and made sure that I was well taken care of. It was really just amazing. I would definitely not travel to Cabo Verde without having the BU country team on my side!!!

    Thank you very much for this enjoyable, relaxed and beautiful trip. Both, the driver Mr. Jackson and the guide Mr. Apollo were absolute friendly, polite and warmhearted. They treat us as guests and friends. The included boat trip was a highlight. We were on time back to our cruise ship. Everything was perfect.

    had the pleasure of doing a tour with Bu Country Tours on 9/3/2021 - 9/9/2021. I thoroughly enjoyed my tours with this company. Each staff member went above and beyond to assist us with our needs. On the last day of the Admilson surprised us and took us back to Bar Restaurante Do Mundo for dinner(by the way, I raved about the tuna dish I had from there the entire trip)! After dinner, he also went above and beyond the call of duty by taking us to the grocery store to pick up local spices and items for us to take home. This company coordinated everything (transportation to and from the airport, transportation to the different cities, covid tests, and obtaining results), and everything went smoothly. I can't rave enough about this company as they provided excellent service! If you're ever in Cape Verde or the surrounding islands, please consider Bu Country Tours.

    My son and I booked the tour to Tarrafal and the concentration camp. It was a Tuesday, and perhaps since Saturday and Wednesday are more popular for visiting the Assomada market, we were the only ones on the tour. At the eco village Zenildo gave us a good overview of the islands, their history, flora and fauna. Assomada market was a bonus as I thought it was only open two days a week. There were plenty of stops along the way to take photos. We visited the concentration camp and then Tarrafal for lunch and the beach. It was an enjoyable trip along the east coast, including a stop the the lovers grotto to sample the local rum, and rum with ground peanuts. Zenildo is a great guide, who made the tour so much more enjoyable

    Tour guides were fantastic, during the car trip they told me a lot about Cabo Verde's history, it was very interesting to hear from their point of view about their history, their culture and their current situation. The scenery along the way from Praia to Tarrafal are various, from the greenlands to the top of the mountains, and then down again towards the sea. Tarrafal has a beautiful beach, and the boat trip to the lighthouse may be short, but worth it: you can almost taste the beauty of the clean and transparent sea while riding on this fishermen's little boat. Incredible experience, highly recommended!

    Me and my girlfriend we met Zenildo in Praia during our first day in Plateau. He proposed us several tours aroud Santiago and convinced us to take a full day tour by public bus. Next day he picked us up on time and we went to Sucupira "Bus station" in order to pick the colective to fowart to the intirior. About 40 min later we arrived at Luisa's house (a must see). Lyisa is so kind and she prepered a home made Kuskus to us. We really miss her fidjos as well. Then we continued to Assomada. Lukelly it was sutarday and we found the market opened. Our guide knew everyone and he is very knowledgeable explaning all types of vegetables we didnt knew. Next, we picked un other bus that took us to tarrafal beach passing though Serra Malagueta natural park. We enjoyd tge beautiful beach with No Stress vibe. After we picked the last bus that brought us back to Praia. We really recomend Zenildo, thank you for showing us your amazing island Like Locals!

    We had a great an very special time. The guides are very professional, they know how to adapt to your needs and preferences and they always do their best to assure you have a wonderful time. After this first excursion we booked the rest of the days with them and it was an excellent investment.

    This full day trip is perfect to explore the island and discover what Santiago has to offer, you get a bit of everything, culture, nature, beach, local cusine… We just had an amazing day!

    We are experienced travelers and we’ve booked many trips and guides all over the world. This guys are just great, we strongly recomend them!
