Sao Miguel is a diverse island with many sites. Taking a personal tour with with Marco, a local, is much better than driving yourself. First, we saw many things that we would have missed on our own and second, Marco was able to provide history and context for what we were seeing. For example, why do they grow tea and... More

My parents booked the excursion through Vision Cruse. They were really keen for me to put their review on the site. The tour guide was Marco Pavao. They were extremely grateful for an fantastic day out. They got to see many places that the coach tours would not get to including a personal meeting with the Mayor. They would unreservedly... More

This Tour Was Amazing and cost friendly!! Gary was very nice, and although he was personally booked for the day he made sure to get one of his other associates to take us around. Carlos spent at least 8 plus hours taking us around the island. We did tour #1 of the twin lakes, pottery factory, pineapple plantation, etc.. and... More

Bottom line - yes, I would hire Gary again if visiting Sao Miguel. We visited in June of 2015 and hired Gary for 2 full days to tour the island. He was punctual, knew the island extremely well, adopted the tours for our family needs and the weather, and provided a lot of information along the way and was pleasant... More

Well marked, not so well promoted on internet (which is in fact good also). Only a little tourists. This is the advantage over Madeira.

There are many tour operators in and around Ponta Delgada. We went with Azorean Tours' Gary Travassos because he seemed to be one the most flexible operators in our email exchanges, and it turned out to be a great decision! We booked 2 consecutive days of travel covering the basics: Sete Cidades/Lagoa do Fogo one day and Furnas the other.... More

Island of Sao Miguel, Acores is in my opinion the Hawaii of the Atlantic. My wife and I visited Sao Miguel and stayed in Ponta Delgada. We booked three tours and would not do it any other way. Our guide was Carlos and by the end of the tours we were one happy family. Carlos was very knowledgeable and personable... More

From my first contact with Gary Travassos I knew that it would be a great tour. I booked a tour for five and we were arriving in a cruise ship in May 2015. It turned out that we ended up arriving a day earlier than planned and I thought that we would have lost our money. However Gary emailed me... More

Our 4 day getaway to S. Miguel would have been ruined if we haven't booked Gary's service. We were 3 couples in our 50's, went on May to S. Miguel and it rained almost during the entire stay. He took us on 2 outstanding day tours of the island. We stopped several times for spectacular view points, local attractions, things... More
