1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The most exciting part was the visit to Fogo Island especially the Caldera. We also enjoyed Cidade Velha and Tarrafal.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

We would advice them to travel earlier in season. In April the weather is already too hot. People should be aware that English is not prevalent, standard of life is low and life may be rough.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Our visit benefited local people -absolutely.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very interesting and educational. We feel we would like to return to Cape Verde in order to see the other Islands including Brava. We would like to visit Fogo Islands once again.

review 26 Feb 2020

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The 4 x 4 journey to Tarrafal on Day 2 with a daredevil driver! The volcanic scenery was spectacular, and there were beautiful beaches with abundant marine life. We really enjoyed the long discussions we had with Lidiana, the tour organiser.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Take a sense of humour and a relaxed attitude - then you won't be worried by lack of information about the trip and lack of warning about what the facilities will be like.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes - our organiser donated money from the sum that we paid for the vacation to a local school. We employed local guides and stayed in relatively modest (sometimes very modest) guesthouses. And we stayed in an eco-hotel, which was a great experience.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was very different from anything else we have experienced, as it was tailor-made rather than being for an organised group. From the first welcome at the airport, the organiser, was extremely friendly and helpful, and went out of her way to make us feel welcome.
