Overall rating

Our guide, Chan, was both really nice, in a good mood, nice sense of humor. We got some delicious small dishes (salty and sweet) and nice juices. It was lucky that there was a carnival in Espargos, so we got that experience. Can definitely recommend that trip. You get a good insight into the local culture, building style, decoration etc.

Appointment perfectly honored t on time when our flight arrived. Perfect vehicle perfectly matching the description. Driver very good (but did not speak French)! Very satisfactory transfer.

The driver was waiting, even that was very delayed because of trouble with the automatic passport controls

Very educational about Cabo Verde way of life and the way the country is set up

Professional and efficient service for transfer from hotel to airport.
