Gary Travassos is a wonderful person and a terrific tour guide. We took two tours #1 and #2, and we had a wonderful time and experience. Being that this was our granddaughter's first trip to the Azores, we wanted it to be perfect, and that it was. She loved it. Gary was wonderful and accommodating. The one morning mother nature...

We had originally planned to rent a car but having a toddler and being at the island for the first time, we thought it best to book Gary's tours. Firstly, he is incredibly responsive and reliable. He was so kind and understanding with our little one. He also adapted the tours to the weather, and made sure we had plenty... More

We had Carlos for our tour on a layover on San Miguel. The island was AMAZING and Carlos was incredible! We're definitely going back. It was a good taste, but we want more :) They do fully customized day trips. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!! -Ben and Family

We went on a walking tour with them to Sete Cidades, but unfortunately the weather wasn't good and we couldn't see much, so the guides changed the tour and took us to see some sites and villages where the weather wouldn't affect the day.

It gives so many things to see on this islands. Take time and enjoy yourself. The special thing is that if it is raining drive with the car on the other side of the island and you will have the better weather their. Choose every morning what you will do because if it is perfect weather you must look all... More

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
