Adventure seekers need look no further than this action-packed 4WD island tour from Santa Maria. A guide will help you see more than you ever could on your own, including Murdeira, Espargos, and Palmeira. You'll also have an opportunity to swim in Salt Lake with your group. Then, before heading to the sea to encounter lemon sharks in their natural habitat, you'll refuel at a local restaurant (own expense) at lunchtime.
Hotel pickup and drop-off makes for a seamless experience
A guide takes you to Espargos, Lion Mountain, Burraconna, fishing villages, and more
Swim in Salt Lake, which is rumored to make you look 10 years younger
Our tour guide could not have been a nicer guy and made sure we were looked after. He was a local guy so knew lots about the island.
Enjoyed seeing all of the sights but our favourite was the sharks and the salt mine where we floated in the water. Thanks guys.
Amazing day - The only way to truly appreciate the island!

As a family of four, 2 adults 1 teen and a 5yr old, we all thoroughly enjoyed this day trip around the island of Sal.
We were collected at 9am and not dropped back until around 4.30pm! Our tour guide Djon, was nothing short of exceptional. He allowed us to take as long as we wished at each stop with no rushing. He showed us places of interest that no other guide were stopping at. We had some lovely photographs taken at a really reasonable price.
Just remember to take your water shoes if you have them, if not you can hire them.
All in all, we had an amazing time and we would highly recommend.
Great value for money.
Really good experience especially during the first days of your visit. Youll have a chance to see many places and decide if you want visit some place again during your holiday. We had a group of 6 which was small group enough to get the best out of our local guide who was really good btw. Highly recommended tour especially if you are not going to rent a car to get to see places. No worries about getting there, just enjoy the ride inside the minivan or sitting outside behind the car.
Everything was smooth - the guide was good, the schedule was interesting. This is a great way to discover the island. I highly recommend doing this trip to be able to see everything that's interesting and unique in Sal. The guides take care of you. Bring a towel and flip flops for the salt mines. Bring a hoodie or long sleeved shirt if you want to stay outdoors on the car! It gets cold while you're driving in the wind. The entrance fee to there is 5EUR not included in the ticket price, and 1EUR for the showers. The gift shops are actually quite nice - bring some money for buying cards, bath salts from the mines, and other little things like necklaces near the mirage spot.
This was a fun tour - perfect length, lots of interesting things to see and knowledgeable and friendly guides
Only downside was that it is not a private tour as advertised. There were maybe 20 other people on our tour and 3 jeeps Not a problem - but not what we were expecting
Would truly recommend this trip. We had a blast and our guide was lovely. It says it's only a 6hr tour ours was closer to 8. I would suggest doing this at the start of your trip, so you will know where you want to revisit and even if you don't you will see the whole Island. Total value for money :D
Wanted to do a island tour, TUI were charging 75 euro each which was a bit OTT for me. Bit wary about booking on line but it was very simple. Received a email 30 mins later with all the details, had to phone a local number to tell them what hotel I was getting picked up from.
Was picked up on time 9.00AM,the day was great. Our guide Djon was friendly and informative, he was born on the Island and new everything there was to know. Lunch was nice, had chicken and chips, wife had pizza c/w drinks come to 18 euro. It was 3 euro each to get in the Blue eye and 5 euro each for entry in salt lake. Had a great day and would recommend.
This tour was amazing! The day was packed with a wide variety of fun and adventure for everyone. The guides and owner are super friendly, accommodating and informative. My only recommendations are to take a couple bottles of water and to request inside car seating if you are unable to climb in and out the back of a truck or do not wish to be directly in the sun. This tour comes highly recommended.
Well, what a fantastic trip! it was supposed to be 6 hours but ended up being 9!! so we had a complete and thorough tour of the island. The guys were fantastic and so friendly and informative. I booked this trip online from Santa Maria and was a little wary at first but wanted so much to ensure that the money i spent on tours went to the locals rather than a travel company. I needn't have worried at all. The guys turned up spot on time outside of our hotel. They supply a contact number so any issues you can call the company. I'm still not sure what the company name was but they were very professional but also approachable too. We had great fun, learned all about the history of the island, paddled with sharks, floated in the salt lake, had an amazing lunch at a local restaurant and made some very good friends. I totally recommend these guys - better than any tour i've done through a tour company and for an amazing price too. I challenge anyone to find a better tour for a similar price. 5 stars!
