Rumbo Malabo es una agencia profesional y 100 % confiable, lo que se agradece sobre todo en un país donde viajar no es tan sencillo y donde hay que dejar muchas gestiones en manos de agentes locales. Ellos se encargan de facilitar todos los trámites necesarios, de velar por tu comodidad y seguridad y de ofrecerte paquetes con los que conocer la Guinea real: sus calles, su naturaleza, su gente. A veces uno piensa que se va a encontrar con los típicos "todo incluido" de resort de Punta Cana en los que acabas enjaulado y viendo lo que te enseñan los del hotel. Todo lo contrario pasa con esta agencia, especializada en turismo sostenible y que de verdad te lleva a conocer la isla de Bioko como si fueras un habitante más.

I really enjoyed the tour of Camasa Finca Sampaka with Rumbo Malabo. The group was small which made the experience even better. Tours like this are important for nationals and tourists so we can understand the history of our country and see what we have to offer to ourselves and possibly the rest of the world. Can't wait for the next excursion!
