Excellent guide very informative and shared much on the local history. Was lovely from start to end We were advised Arrival time and guide asked us what we wanted from the tour. Very clean transport


Definitely a 10/10 experience Ranging from the pickup at the hotel, to the amazing tour guide with all the fun facts and local knowledge, to the beautiful location that we explore such as the Salinas De Santa Maria, the snorkeling with sharks where we were face to face with them, the termal water at Salinas De Pedra de Lume and last but not least the extraordinary lunch at a local family home of Mama Elsa (such an angel) to end our day with the home cooking food. A SUPERB EXPERIENCE INDEED!


This tour was the best tour of my life it was wonderful, I learned about the history of Sal Island that I didn't know, visiting salt flats and swimming with sharks was amazing, it was my first time swimming, it couldn't have been better, an experience that I will take with me for life, the guide was wonderful, super attentive and a lot of fun. I highly recommend this tour to everyone, you won't regret this unique experience, not to mention the homemade food that Mama Elsa made was very delicious. Thank you very much for the experience.


From the moment we meet our driver Vandy we knew we were in safe hands. Turned up spot on time and from the offset told us where we were going and what we doing. A wonderful experience from Shark Island to The Salt Mines with an excellent guide. Would highly recommend.


Was a fabulous tour. Was collected promptly and given a superb tour of the island. Would really recommend this tour. The tour was informative and friendly and communication was fantastic.


Chan is great native guide, with good English skill and very emphatic. I will recommend you all my friends. Excellent experience. Thanks


Amazing visita e sessões de foto, comesando pela recolha no hotel, Mergulho com os tubarões numa experiência única. Melhor sensação do mundo ao flutuar na Salina de Pedra de lumi, almoço simples e saudável na casa da Mama Elsa. Foi um dia divertido, repleto de emoções super recomendo.


Banho na agua das salinas é uma experiência fantástica. Ponto negativo chuveiros são pagos aparte e tem de se deslocar uns "m" a pé
