    A good day out with Nany
    samanthaP, Aug 2022
    We had an amazing day with Nany and his driver, The sharks were really good. A lot of off road driving so not good for bad backs. Lunch was lovely my children loved the spaghetti and asked for seconds. The Salt lake was a strange experience and best to go in the morning as it gets very smelly later in the day. We didn’t get to see the blue eye due to the weather but went to a local beach instead. Overall well worth the money but remember you have to pay 5€ for salt lake and 3€ for blue eye. Lunch was also not included in the price.
    Great tour
    Maria_T, Jul 2022
    The tour was amazing! You can explore all islands with this company and it is amazing! I truly recommend to do it when you visit Sal! Very good experience
    A great way to explore the island in one day

    Nigel_B, Jul 2022
    From start to finish we were looked after expertly by our knowledgeable and most friendly guide Nany. Every location we visited was worth it. We spent time in the rear of the open top jeep then swapped with others inside at intervals so you could hear the information that Nany had to give. Would recommend without a doubt and don't worry about the sharks, they are very friendly!
    Grant_A, Jul 2022
    From start to finish this trip was so much more than we were expecting. Our guide Adilson was very knowledgeable and really made the day for us. A truly memorable experience!
    Must Try!
    Jordan_B, Jul 2022

Must try experience, visited near enough the whole island In one day, stopped off for lunch with the locals and got to experience the village. Very good for value for money, shark bay was particularly amazing!

    Natalia_K, Jun 2022
    Really great experience with our guide Chan! He organized it very well and has an amazing knowledge to share. We really enjoyed the tour. And as it is a small group it is a nice opportunity to meet people.
    Amazing guide and trip
    Liv_B, Jun 2022
    It was amazing! We had a really nice guide, Chan. Full of energy with an extremely positive vibe. His English was really good and he knew a lot about the places we went. He drove carefully so I felt save the whole trip.
    Great experience with all the sights of Sal
    Henri_V, May 2022
    We had Chan as our guide. Chan is a very energetic and knowledgeable man. He always has a smile on his face and provided us a super experience. We saw all the sights in Sal: shark Bay, salt lake, Fata Morgana and much more. We strongly recommend to book a tour with Chan to get the best out of your holiday.

    Daniel_G, May 2022
    NANY our guide was very informative and not only showed the beauty of the island, but took us around the other parts which was great to see how the people live. we literally had 6 tours in one. The tour is much better value than the tour operators who would have charged us for each individual tour item.

    Strongly recommended
    steff_h, Mar 2022
    Really everything was perfect. Chan was such a nice and fun person that you just enjoy to be with him. He shared his detailed knowledge about Sal with us and it was so interessting to listen to him. He perfectly switched between languages (in our case Englisch and Franc) which makes it easy to follow the Story. We are grateful for this expierence. Thanks to Chan and the Team

    I went solo but did not feel alone at all during the trip! Lovely people with me in the car+ a nice guide who made sure i got enough pictures and had a memorable experience. Definetly would recommend to get a full experience of sal island, and a fun day
    A fun and interesting day out
    Pamela_C, Mar 2022
    Chan was an excellent guide with a great deal of knowledge and enthusiasm. We got a good understanding of island life from someone who grew up on Sal. The tour operator also text with an updated pick up time in the morning so we weren’t waiting around. It was great fun riding on the back of the 4x4. My tip would be to bring a jumper, shirt or jacket as it can get very windy on the ride!
    Tour around the SAL
    JrgenClausager_N, Mar 2022
    Good tour. Pro Guide, that took time to explain it all. Nice weather, a bit Vindy on the back of the pickup truck. No Stress 👍
    Bucking the trend of exploitative tours
    Helen_A, Mar 2022
    I've been on many trips that don't really care about you, don't give you enough time or info, aren't knowledgeable and take you shopping. Our guide, Chan, bucks thus trend. We got such an authentic experience and he insisted we have a good time, living up to the Cape Verde motto of "no stress" even when he was getting stress about taking us shopping. Basically, if any tour operators are reading this, we don't want to shop. It's a waste of everyone's time. Your guests will enjoy it more if you focus it on their enjoyment. Like Chan did.
    Response from Host, Mar 2022
    Thank you for recommending us Helen, we are delighted to hear you had a great experience and enjoyed your day, our mission is to give you a great EXPERIENCE on your holiday, completely customer focused and we don't take customers the shops because Sal island has so much to see and experience with our local and professional guides, and Chan is a really great guide and we are glad you are satisfied, thank you! Enjoy your holiday!
