My husband and I spent 1 week in Ponta Delgada because we had been hearing so much about it. We took 2 tours with Gary in Sao Miguel the week of October 5, 2013. I was a little hesitant because I use a wheelchair and cane and was nervous about accessibility. Gary really lived up to his word! He said I should be able to do 95% of tours 1 and 2 and he was so right! My husband and I had a wonderful time. Our trip started off with Carlos picking us up at the airport and we immediately started learning about the island. During our tours, Gary jumped right in helping my husband push the wheelchair and taking us to such beautiful, delicious and enjoyable places. It truly is such a great place. to visit and the right tour guide can really make a difference. Gary really makes you feel like you have known him forever. He is always on time and goes the extra mile to make sure you enjoy yourself. He also reads those clouds! He tries to makes adjustments along the way so you get the best possible experience if the weather changes and clouds move in etc. It was very relaxing because we never felt rushed or on a time schedule. Such a different experience from a crowded bus tour. Gary has spoiled us. We highly recommend visiting this beautiful, friendly island. It was so much better than we even expected and Gary had a lot to do with that. If you go, Gary is the person to show you around!
