The two tours around the island with Gary were ideal to experience what São Miguel is - a spectacular place to be in contact with nature! Gary took us to those "hidden" places that the buses don't take you. I definitely recommend this service! Thank you Gary :)

I have contacted Gary a couple of months ago via email to book two tours of the island during the Easter period. He promptly replied and his service met our expectations. Tour 1 and 2 from his website were amazing: Sete Cidades, Lagoa do Fogo etc and Gary's knowledge of the island and its secrets makes the trip even more... More

Gary was wonderful! He picked us up promptly at our hotel in a brand new vehicle (he's just added a Merecedez Benz with seating capacity for 8 guests). His English is fluent and he made many extra efforts to ensure we got to see and learn about the things that interested us. We saw lakes, hot springs, coastal thermal baths,... More

Well what can I say other than that my girlfriend and I had a terrific time in Sao Miguel, a lot of which is contributed to Gary's services. He picked us straight from the airport on time and took us around the island. If you're thinking about renting a car to do your own exploration, forget about it, it's troublesome... More

We messaged Gary months before hand and he got back to use immediately . He did everything he could to accommodate our large group of 11 people. We are beyond satisfied and impressed. Although the weather was not the best Gary chose where we should visit so that our trip was as best as it could be. The sights were... More

We booked two tours with Gary during our week in the Azores. He was friendly, helpful and very familiar with the history, geology and natural wonders of the island. Gary was born in Canada but returned to the Azores at age 10. He has strong family and emotional roots on Sao Miguel. Gary is well organized and anxious to give... More

Our week on the Azores end of January was a great experience, especially since we took two interesting tours with Gary. Gary is very knowledgeable, courteous and well informed about the history of the islands, as well as its people, the local fauna and flora and he was able to answer all our questions. Although not yet summer, the green... More
