Our guide Maria and driver Sonny picked us up on time at the meeting point. We were the only participants on the tour, the vehicle was a clean car. The first stop was Mrs. Luisa's house, where the traditional Cape Verdean breakfast from Cuscuz and Fidjós was prepared for us. Thank you for the hospitality and the breakfast that kept us full until the afternoon! Maria speaks good English and told us a lot of interesting facts about the country and its people. During a police check, she remained confident and calm, even when we had to wait for another car to continue our journey. Local fishermen were just arriving on Tarrafal beach and selling their catch directly from the boat. Tarrafal really is a dream beach frequented by both locals and tourists! It was great to unwind there for an hour! This tour is highly recommended to get a taste of life in Santiago. Maria/Milda, thank you for the nice day!!

YOU CANT MISS THIS! incredible tour with the best tourist guide. We met Luisa who made us a delicious tipical cape verdian breakfast , and then we visit all the most interesting places of Santiago. Truly, the best. Garcia knows very well the history of the country and he explains it sooo good. You won’t regret. “Life is good” Thank you very much Admilson!!!

Alles was prima geregeld! Gids Alfonso was echt een topper en hield rekening met het tempo (dat niet altijd even hoog lag) De tocht opzich was niet zo heel zwaar, maar door de warme temperaturen toch niet te onderschatten en zeer vermoeiend. Top geregeld, mooie wandeling! Echt de moeite waard en prachtige uitzichten!

Punctual guide at the hotel on the evening before the tour with all the information for the day. Good ascent pace, lots of information about the volcano and history. Safe and beautiful descent route.

Our guide was also very knowledgeable and was very engaging and accommodating. We can only recommend the tour!
