Perfect Cabo Verde Trip
May 2021
Our 4-island tour of Santiago, Fogo, Sao Vicente, Santo Antao was arranged by BU Country Tours, and we were extremely pleased with how well everything went. Admilson Garcia of BU worked with us to arrange everything, including flights, ferries, hotels, and covid testing. The extra service was valuable, as we were unable to book flights online ourselves due to the domestic airline ceasing operations. BestFly (Angola) is now the only airline operating between islands and at the time of travel they did not have an online booking platform.

Admilson is an incredibly upbeat, enthusiastic guide and was always on time and available even after dropping us off after our daily excursions. He is a great ambassador for Cabo Verde!

On Santiago we stayed at Hotel Perola, conveniently located near the plateau area of Praia which has great restaurants. On Sao Vicente we stayed at Solar Windelo Hotel in Mindelo, with great city views. If you don't mind the stairs, an upper room is best. A short ferry ride away is Santo Antao Island where we did an incredible hike which began in the Cova crater. The views were breathtaking.

Thanks BU Country Tours/Admilson Garcia for a wonderful time and for all your work putting together a great itinerary to meet our needs! I'll be seeing you again when I pass through Cabo Verde in April 2022...
