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.

I booked a full day tour with Gary, based on recommendations from others here on Trip Advisor. We completely enjoyed our tour!! Gary was very accommodating, super friendly, and very knowledgeable about the island. We had such a great time! 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

We used Gary three years ago when we visited Sao Miguel and so I contacted him as soon as I had the date set to take my daughter's family this year to this beautiful island. Our party of 8 included my daughter's four sons, aged 16, 14, 10 and 7 and Gary was able to tailor our two days with... More

We spent a full day in May 2014 touring the eastern side of Sao Miguel with Gary, he is knowledgeable and very enthusiastic about the islands. His vehicle was spotless and comfortable, the whole day was a pleasure. There are coach excursions available to see lots of sites we visited, but we would have missed out on those more out... More

We had such a great time on our tour of the island when landing at Ponta Delgada, we'll surely want to schedule our next San Miguel visit with Gary. Not only were the tourist attractions visited, but some things that only Gary can manage to include for us. His family was so nice, they made us feel welcome to visit... More
