What people are saying about Buracona

Je ne peux that recommander cette excursion with 100%. Moi et mon compagnon avons adoré cette experience. Chan, the guide is super kind and attentionné et en plus il parle très bien français. Nous avons beaucoup appris sur la culture du Cap Vert et visité toutes les main attractions de l'île.

We had an amazing experience with Chan ! It was the beginning of the season in March and we had the tour for only ourselves. The car was great and we discovered everything we needed to see on the island. Amazing experience that I recommend !!!

Chan is very nice friendly guide and good photographer. We laughed, seen all the nice places and had a good meal.
