Welcome to vista verde tours – the travel expert of Cape Verde!

We are very proud of being able to launch our new website despite these unprecedented and difficult times.
It is of high importance to us as we truly believe that tourism is a key to the successful future of this country.
More than ever we – together with all our local service partners – pursue the philosophy of sustainable tourism.
