He took us on 2 outstanding day tours of the island. We stopped several times for spectacular view points, local attractions, things... More

Although we had rented our own car, going on a tour with Gary was not only more relaxing and entertaining, he added a local 'insider' dimension to the... More

Scenery is gorgeous, but you need a clear day. Watch out for the sunburn when on top of the craters. A dip in Furnas pool is a must. The water is heated by volcanic springs and is the same temperature as bath water

My boyfriend and I traveled from the US and the rest of the family flew in from mainland Portugal. Gary was very responsive... More

Gary Travassos Taxi & Van Tours in Sao Miguel made this visit the best part of our trip, flexibility of this tour made it possible for us to visit important parts of this island in our short stay. This tour arranged a comfortable car sit for our 3 years old son. I was excellent tour.
