“Tour Review - Great Day with Gary and Carlos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

My husband and I took a tour with Gary on May 1st with several folks from our cruise ship. We had a van full and a car full traveling together. They took us to see their beautiful island and shared their pride if the island. While tour buses were stopping just to look over at Sete Cidades, we were riding along the top rim to see it from various views. They gladly took pictures for us with our cameras, shared so many beautiful sights on the island, told us about the history of the island, etc. They arranged a great lunch for us at a local restaurant on the other side of the island looking out over the ocean. They were great tour guides, and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Gary Travassos is the best! He is a wonderful fellow, as well as most knowledgeable, prompt, courteous. His prices are very reasonable and the vehicle was clean and comfortable.

“Outstanding Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Our group of 4 had an outstanding tour by Carlos of Furnas Crater Lake & Fire Crater Lake (unfortunately the later was not visible due to clouds so we went to an alternative water fall and park which was wonderful). Gary was very responsive in coordinating the tour, and Carlos did an excellent job of guiding us around Sao Miguel. We are returning next April and will book Gary's company again with a larger group.

“Excellent tour, tailored to us!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Our transatlantic cruise stopped in Ponta Delgada for the day and Gary picked us up at the port. He has a very comfortable van that seats 8. We could very clearly hear him and easily ask questions while touring around. We accompanied a family of 6 on the tour. Gary took us to the sights we were hoping to see, but he also took us off the beaten path to local spots to see how people in the different cities live. He took us to a small fishing village where we were able to meet the fishermen and they showed us their catch for the day. Later we went to a local restaurant and Gary spoke with the waiter to help us order our food. Gary also took us to several lookouts and spots that are not on the typical "list" for tours of Sao Miguel. When we were finished Gary dropped us near the post office in Ponta Delgada because we told him we wanted to mail some postcards. Another lady on our tour wanted to exchange a large Euro for smaller bills and he went with her and her husband to the bank to help them. This is all in one day! He was very accommodating and I would recommend booking him in advance if you are planning to go to Sao Miguel.
