We took the hike around the Sete Cidades lake. It was quite a difficult hike with a lot of steep climbs and descents. We loved it though. It was raining for the first half of the hike. It did eventually clear and we got some good views of the lake on our way down. Our tour guide was nice, but... More

I joined a big game fishing tour with BigBlue and was very happy with my choice, even if my big tuna got away just a few meters from the boat after a 15 minutes struggle. The captain and his assistant did their outmost to find tunas on a day at the end of the season. They were informative an very... More

We booked a tour with Green Zone tours, but were assigned to Evaristo of Big Blue tours. Only 4 guests total in a van made for a comfortable ride with plenty of room. The tour of the island was very good, even though the weather was drizzly and somewhat foggy. Much better than the bus tour offered by the cruise... More

We booked a tour with Jon and Evaristo instead of booking a touristy cruise excursion. With BigBlue, we were able to plan our day out with them -- a private tour of the island! It was reasonably priced and we got way more than our money's worth! We told Jon and Evaristo that we wanted to see the real Azores... More

I stayed at Sao Miguel Park Hotel In Ponta Delgado and asked a friendly staff member at the front desk which tour to book. She very much recommended Evaristo with BigBlue Adventures for several reasons: 1. He will customize the tour for what you want to see, not just a pre-set package with no choices 2. His large van is... More

I was in the Azores on a Youth in Action exchange project with 14 young people, and our local PEJ Azores youth association partners had arranged with this tour company to take us around and arrange all excursions for us.
