Tour description provided by Viator

Your full-day São Tomé shared tour focuses on the Northern part of the island and includes plenty of culture and history of one of Africa's smallest countries. Your driver/guide provides round-trip transport from anywhere in São Tomé. Maximum passengers is 115.
Your driver/guide will pick you up in São Tomé between 9am and 10am. Begin your tour at Roca Agostinho Neto, a coffee farm that was once the biggest plantation of its time. The road leading here is stunningly scenic as are the views approaching the pastel pink building. The plantation's sheer size is something especially amazing. You will find plenty of life, as there are a number of locals who live here and are as excited to see you, as you are to see them.Next, stop at Roca Monte Forte, a spot near the beach and a local fisherman's village. Roca Monte Forte is a working plantation in the dry zone of western São Tomé. Next, visit The Blue Lagoon, possibly the most famous site on the island. Here you are surrounded by unique trees, flora, and crystal-clear blue water that you are likely to have all to yourself. Of course, your day tour is not complete without a visit to a cacao plantation. Cacao was once a giant industry for the small nation of São Tomé and Principe. Although the industry has been neglected recently, there are major efforts happening to regenerate the land and boost its production. A large majority of the land is now designated and used to cultivate cacao. Today, you are able to appreciate the process and enjoy learning about one of, if not the most important crop in, São Tomé.Your last destination is Discoveries Landmark, another spot that is rarely visited. Here you will spend some time and appreciate the scenery. Once your tour is complete, you will be dropped off at your hotel anywhere in São Tomé.
