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

We spent two fabulous with Gary on our recent trip to Sao Miguel. Gary was knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and incredibly patient. The weather isn’t predictable so although we had two day tours planned with set routes, the weather dictated what we could and could not see and Gary was great at being flexible to enable us to see as much...

We booked Gary for his tour 4 on a windy and showery day. However his adaptive approach ensured that we sampled the tea planation, we saw and sampled the volcanic cooked food in Furnas as well as getting to many view points. Gary knows the island so well that he was able to avoid many of the showers and maximised... More

Gary, the owner, and Carlos Simoes, an employee, took us (me, my husband, his brother, sister, and sister-in-law) on three tours of Sao Miguel. We visited many, many beautiful sites and Gary and Carlos provided interesting information on all of them. They were also willing to adjust the trips, if something caught our eye as we were driving around the... More

For three days we had the good fortune to have Gary, owner of Azorean Tours drive and guide us around the island of Sao Miguel. Although not a miracle worker, he was truly a magician at being able to reveal many of the island's beautiful sights despite periods of rain and fog on two of the days we were with... More

We found about Azorean tours just the week before we were leaving to Azores, while looking for airport transfer. I booked via email the airport transfers and 2 tours around the island. Carlos pick us up at the airport and was very friendly. Two days later Gary picked us up at the hotel in Ponta Delgada for tour #2, with... More

After booking with Gary and finally meeting him on the day of the tour, he asked about me and my family history so he could figure out if there were any detours or points of interest he could add to make the tour more personalized. He was excellent about incorporating a visit to two smaller towns that my family has... More

My husband and I toured with Gary for three full days while on our honeymoon in the Azores in September. Gary was incredibly knowledgeable and allowed us to feel truly immersed in Azorean life. Cognisant of the weather, Gary was flexible and planned three wonderful days on San Miguel for us. We would recommend his services in a heartbeat! Thank... More

Carlos was our guide. A very knowledgeable and all around great guy. We took tour 1 from the website. Over 8 hours of sight seeing. The island is so beautiful and unique. Carlos told us about the history and culture of the island. The majestic lakes in the west. The northern costal towns and some of the best food. Actually... More
