I recently had a 5 hour layover in Ponta Delgada, and contacted Azorean tours to see if it would be possible to arrange a short tour of the island. Gary responded promptly with several suggestions, and Marco met me at the airport and we were off! What a great day! The twin lake area was totally fogged in, but (like... More

In few words, you won't find a more accommodating or informative guide. Gary is patient, unfailingly friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable. My sister and I recently had the opportunity to visit Sao Miguel and we enjoyed two full fabulous days touring with Gary who showed us the highlights of this beautiful island. In some cases, he made two trips to... More

Gary was quick to respond to our inquiries and even called us at our hotel to discuss our wishes for a tour. What a tour we had! The weather held out so we had good visibility from the various view points. Gary is just a... More

We used this company previously in the year and were so impressed we decided to us3 them again and we were not disappointed. Our driver was so enthusiastic to show us his island that he went out of his way to do so. We explored the central part of the island making several stops and ending up at a small... More

We took two tours with this company. Marco drove us to many of the sites, explained about the sites and the island, and waited while we experienced the thermal baths. The next day, Garry showed us the other side of the island. He was quite informative and personable. Both guides were very helpful and went out of their way to... More

My now fiance and I can't thank Marco and Gary enough for a phenomenal day in Sao Miguel. Gary was always attentive and responded very quickly to our emails. He was even flexible enough to accommodate our request in advance to make a stop in Rabo de Peixe where my father grew up. He set our tour up with Marco,... More
