Thanks so much. The guides take a lot of pride in their work and love to hear feedback. And as you know the humpback whales are so curious...if they could, I'm sure they would say a big thanks too!

A cycle tour is an ideal way to get a good overview of Mozambique Island, which is quite small and very flat. The tour covered all the main points, with useful insights and interesting history, which would probably have been otherwise missed

Thanks for your review of our bike tour. As you say its still the "best way to visit the Island".Over the next few weeks we hope to post news on new bike initiatives that will make the island even more bicycle friendly. Pete

I remember this trip well, big seas, lots of action but nothing 'special' until that fantastic breach right at the end - wow! The bottle nose dolphins on the way back were the icing on the cake. Thanks for review Pete

A great way to orient yourself to the island and point out the buildings and places you will want to explore more. It's not too long at 2 and half hours and enough info on history and culture. You get to visit makuti town which...More

Thanks for your great review. The bike tour was the first tour we offered on Ilha and in so many ways it is still the best. I like your good advice "the best way to start a visit to Ilha". Cheers Pete

We enjoyed the excursion with Ilha Blue very much. Everything was very well organised and structured. We loved especially the lunch under the baobab trees.
