Embark on a full day guided tour and discover the amazing city of Mindelo. From its historical quarter to the outside suburbs, the local bus network will also bring us to the best view points over the bay. Mindelo has 8 bus lines (public traffic) and you will use all of them, combining with walking, visiting schools, community projects and hidden place, where normal tourists never go in. There is mandatory donation in value min. 5 EUR per person (not included in the price of excursion) and you will decide, whom you want to help and how. Together with your guide you will go shopping (depending on your decision) and deliver the help to those, who need it. Please, recharge your camera well, since the pictures you will shoot will be indeed unique!

At 9am you will meet with your guide on Praça Nova (the main quarter). Your driver will pick you up 10 minutes before at your hotel and drive you to the meeting point. From there you’ll walk to the first bus stop (the bus tickets are included in the price) and you will drive to one of the view point of Mindelo (Cruz). Mindelo was built around huge harbor on the mountains surrounding the bay, so that there are many nice view points, where you can shoot great pictures. But, you will visit more of them! After you'll continue walking to suburb Chã do Alecrim, watching the real life of the Cape Verdeans.

This place used to was a military base with the guns protecting the air-space during II. World War. No single shot was done – the war passed by without harming Cape Verde. From this point you will have panoramic view over the whole bay and whole Mindelo.

Then you will do the shopping either for school kids or for another people in need you met during the day and after lunch you and your guide will deliver your appreciated help on spot.  After you will go for a lunch at around 1:30pm at a beautiful restaurant close to the Marina and fishing center.
