We just spent two full days with Gary as our guide. We choose tour 1 of the west coast and tour 2 of the north east and Fumas. We had toyed with the idea of renting a car and driving ourselves but there is no way the experience would have been as full. Gary took us to areas we would... More

Although I have been to Sao Miguel twice before, I have never had such an amazing experience as I did on my recent visit with my nieces and daughter in-law. Gary from Azorean Tours made this trip so special. We spent two beautiful days with this amazing tour guide. Not only did he do an amazing job showing us and... More

My fiancé and I went on a two day private tour with Gary, and it was so worth it. Gary shared with us his personal live for the Azores and customized the schedule based on our interest, which made the whole experience very special. Definitely do your self a favor and book Gary well in advance before visiting!

We visited Sao Miguel for one day on a cruise, and having had friends complete a walking holiday in the Azores only a couple of months earlier, they had told us there was so much to see. So rather than take a 'shore excursion' with 40 other people climbing on and off a coach, I looked around and found Gary... More

We took 2 full-day tours with Gary, a party of 6 to Sete Cidades and Lagoa do Fogo, then 8 of us to Furnas. The tours were very reasonably priced. Gary is very friendly and knowledgeable. He wisely waited until he knew what the weather would be like before deciding which tour to do on which day. And then he... More

We went on a full day tour to Nordeste with Gary. He was on time picking us up, and made sure to tailor the tour to things that we hadn't yet seen on the island and brought us to a bunch of great locations. We had a picnic lunch in a beautiful little spot. He was very knowledgeable about the... More

My girlfriend and I booked two tours with Gary's company, and had a perfect experience. 5 stars isn't enough to describe it. We did Tours 1 and 2 on back-to-back days. Marco was our guide both days, and he was fantastic. He was friendly, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and funny. He seems to know everyone on the island, and went out of... More

This was a great tour of a beautiful island with a truly professional company. Our guide Marco was great fun and made the two days we spent touring very special for our group of eight. Amazing sights, great food and interesting information.
