GG travels in small groups, which adds greatly to the experience. Jaime is a lovely guide, very knowledgable about nature. Also he calls for more gas quite often, driving your quad through sand dunes. Helpful! Also, 639 positive reviews can't be wrong. Great tour!

Before we arrived at Boa Vista we kept seeing Giggling Gecko's name crop up on the reviews for our hotel - so my husband contacted Jen & Richard to find out what we could do during our stay 16th-27th December 2017. We ended up booking 3 tours with them. 1) Quad Biking (North) with Jaime - great fun - over... More

I booked a place for myself on the half-day 'Southern Comfort' tour. I was accompanied by two other couples. We all got on well with each other. Our guide, Richard, who also runs the company, also did his best to encourage rapport between us. This was a good half-day out ( 4-5 hours), with plenty to see, and also places... More

What an incredible company this is! Run by Richard and his partner Jen. Richard was our guide for both trips we took - an all day tour of Cape Verde and an evening of traditional dancing/fire eating at the local beach shack. He was fabulous - knowledgeable, committed to the island and its people/way of life and an all round... More
