Gary is an excellent and considerate tour guide. We have a young boy who was car sick that day and he accommodate him while not letting us wait aside doing nothing. I highly recommend him.

Gary was truly wonderful to work with during our visit to the Azores. We did two full day tours and he even scheduled us in for an additional half day. His knowledge of the island is vast and we loved getting to learn from each day! We would definitely recommend him and his company!

You want to see Sao Miguel Island and NOT be on a bus with many others? Gary Travassos (the boss) can fix you up! He assigned Nuno to guide us around the island. Even though it rained on April 30th, Nuno was dedicated to showing off his island. Did he ever! Many stops and photos taken during our 6-hour tour.... More

Once again we were visiting Ponta Delgada and having had a superb tour with Gary in 2014 we booked him again. It was a different group of 8 people and when we arrived and discussed our planned itinerary, Gary felt that we'd get the best out of the day if he changed the route to allow the mist to clear...

We booked a half day with GARY TRAVASSO - he was booked so we had a special tour guide - sorry I cannot find his name but this wonderful man did not only communicate beautifully - he completely changed our tour because it was an awful rainy day - he showed us so much of the Azores including an Tea/Alcohol/and...

We took two full day tours with Gary Travasso of Azores Tours while in the Azores in April. Gary is passionate about his island and goes to great pains to ensure you have the best possible experience. He reads the weather and adjusts the tour to avoid the rain and makes sure you have the best possible photo opportunities from... More

We took a full day tour with Gary Travasso of Azorean Tours while on a repositioning cruise in April. I can't say enough about Gary as a tour operator. The communication upfront was terrific. We knew what to expect as well as who our fellow tourmates were (he asked if it was ok to share our info before sharing info).... More

Contacted Azorean Tours and Gary got back to us right away with options for a full day tour out of Furnas. Unfortunately Gary was unavailable the day we could tour but he set us up with Francisco. Francisco gave us a an excellent tour that covered two thirds of Sao Miguel and took about 8 hours. He is native to... More

He was incredibly responsive and helpful in plannning our trip to Sao Miguel. We toured with him our last day and at the last minute we asked to include a trip to... More

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 :)
