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

Gary provided such a memorable experience for me and my family last.year. My Father was born on the island of St. Michael. Gary not only gave us an amazing tour of the island, but also brought us to find the house where my Father lived and the school he attended. He went out of his way to find the local... More

We took a family trip to the Azore Islands in June 2013 with Gary as our guide in Sao Miguel. He was perfect for our group of 8 in all aspects. He was flexible with our needs, yet kept us on schedule to enjoy different sites and attractions. He was knowledgeable and friendly and had 'connections' to the locals. We... More

I should have written this years ago, when we first met Gary on our May 2010 trip to the Azores. We had a great day with him, visiting Furnas, a tea plantation, and learning a lot about the islands. He was professional, organized, and committed to giving us a great experience. We really enjoyed our time with him - so... More

On our recent trip to the Azores we had several trips with Gary - 2 airport transfers and a full day tour of Sao Miguel with Carlos (another of the drivers). I would absolutely recommend Gary for anyone visiting the island. He is incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and considerate. One quick example: our flight to the Azores on Sata was delayed... More

Thank you for your very kind words! Thank you for the feedback about Carlos. It is always good to hear that your assistente does a good work even when you are booked and have to trust someone to do a similiar work as you. Carlos has been with me for over 3 years, so I trust his work. About the... More

I visited São Miguel, Azores, with my family for 4 days. I hired Gary Travassos' services (van) for two days and one morning. Gary was always very punctual and nice. He provided us very nice and relaxing tours, as he knows the island deeply. I highly recommend Gary's tours.

Gary was a fantastic tour guide and we thoroughly enjoyed the day we spent touring the Sete Cidades Lakes and the Fire Lake area. The scenery and views were spectacular and Gary knew the best places to stop for photos. We didn't feel rushed or pushed along. We were also impressed with Gary's knowledge of the history of the islands... More

My wife and I had a great day with Gary. We pretty much saw everything we wanted to see plus. Including a tour of a local winery.

My family (4 adults and 1 toddler) booked Gary for both 1 full day tour and 2 half-day tours in late June 2014. Both tours were excellent as Gary listened to what we wanted and needed (because of the baby) and adjusted both days accordingly. The Azorean Tours website, which is Gary's company, was also very helpful leading up to... More
