Gary conducted his tour in a very professional manner. Our family truly enjoyed his insights and narratives throughout the tour. He was friendly, knowledgeable, on time and very passionate about his work. His tour was comprehensive but not rushed. His website described in detail the various tour options available and we received what he advertised. There were no unpleasant surprises.... More

That's how he treated us...courteous, friendly, funny and considerate, Gary was as excited to show us his island as he would a long-lost relative! The views, cultural centers and sites Gary chose were exciting, educational, interesting and fun. Gary got us into... More

We took two 1-day tours around Sao Miguel with Gary and we absolutely loved both of them! Gary knows the nicest places to visit, including restaurants. He customized both tours to our interests, which included a very long visit to a local winery (yes, there is a winery there!). We'd highly recommend Gary to anyone who is considering a stay... More

Booking a tour through e-mail with Gary was very easy and efficient. We chose the Furnas-Nordeste full day tour with Carlos. Me, my wife and our two daughters had a really pleasant day and Carlos gave us a very complete overview over the many different sides of this beautiful island.

He showed us sights and gave us information that we, otherwise, would never had learned about on our own. Also... More

We had the most amazing time on our honeymoon and this is in large part because of Gary. we spent 4 full days with Gary and he showed us the best parts of the island, but also understood that we were trying to rest and relax and so was incredibly flexible with our start times and end times. He transferred... More
