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

THANK YOU Gary for your amazing tour of Sao Miguel. What an experience! Gary picked us up at the airport and was waiting for us as we exited arrivals. He seriously knows this place like the back of his hand. Because the weather wasn't great, he adjusted our tour plan to make sure we actually saw some interesting things despite... More

I would highly recommend Gary Travassos for touring the island of Sao Miguel. We booked him for a full day tour. The morning of the tour, the weather along our planned route was expected to be rainy with bad visibility, so Gary recommended an alternative tour route and we had few visibility problems. He was completely flexible and willing to... More
