This excursion program has been created in 1995, by Viking Cape Verde,Lda G.Manager, Valdemiro Ferreira, the Tour operator with more experience on tours on the islands of Cape Verde, based on his substantial experience and knowledge of the islands,cities and society, where he was born in the fifties.
Some people refer to shore excursions on the same concept of tour, but Mr.Valdemiro Ferreira, has a different opinion. Tours are for guests on vacation for a long visit, travelling by plane from home to a hotel.Shore Excursions are for Guests from Cruises, and Guests on vacation shall have a week or a month to visit the islands from a Hotel. The Guests from Cruises needs a few hours only of Shore Excursion, with the taste of discovery, adventure and fun, which requires a different concept of tourism. This excursion is based on this concept, to give the guests a taste of the island in 4,00 hours, including elements of culture, most interesting places, panoramic view of the islands, history, economy, local art and handcrafts, music, traditional dances, refreshment, entertainment and fun.
It is surely the best shore excursion offered on the islands of St. Vincent – Mindelo City,island of Santiago – Praia City, and the island of Santo Antão – Porto Novo City . This excursion is sometimes named by the cruise companies, by “Island Half Day Tour”, “Island Full Day Tour”, and “Island Grand Tour”, sometimes is including such as lunch or a refreshment and local culture;
