We did two sightseeing tours and short rides with Gary and Carlos who were extremely accommodating. They were very knowledgeable about the island, and spoke excellent English. Since there were only two of us, we easily agreed on the tour routes. The highlights were Furnas, Logoa do Fogo, Sete Cidades and the golf courses. The local restaurants they introduced us... More

This is our second time to use the services of Gary Travassos as our tour guide at Ponta Delgada, Azores, for our shore excursion. We saw totally different things this time and even had time to eat lunch at the restaurant where they take the food to be cooked underground, then serve it in their restaurant. Sightseeing, photo ops, using... More

Thank you for your great review John about my service! Being your second time and knowing each another, helped a lot to do the Tour. Just had to choose another area on the island that you didn't see (there is still more to see for another time you stop here). Everthing went well during your cruise stop here, so that... More

Initially all of our email contact was with Gary- he was so helpful and quick to get back to us! We set up a tour after going back and forth for a few weeks. Unfortunately Gary was not able to take us but he sent Carlos! What a treat. Carlos was awesome! He was so passionate about the island and... More

Our experience was similar to those of others posting reviews, finding Gary to be prompt, reliable, communicative and flexible. His passion for the island and his job is clear. He is the most conscientious guide I have ever had, doing everything he could to make the experience enjoyable. We had only planned to do the guided tour one day, but... More

We booked Tour 5: Nordeste because it would take us to the parts of the island we weren't planning on visiting later on our own. It was raining and quite foggy the day of our tour and so Gary wasn't sure if we'd be able to proceed with the tour as outlined on his website but he had a Plan... More

Gary and Carlos gave us a a wonderful tour of Sao Miguel. Very personable, helpful and adaptable to our individual desires. The sights were awesome. Both Carlos and Gary had extensive knowledge of the island, its culture and its history making the experience so much more than "just another beautiful place." Cameras are a must and a jacket and comfortable... More
