“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We did this tour while cruising with NCL. It was really well organiised our guide Rui was waiting for as we walked off the ship and we were away before any of the organised trips. There were definate benefits of travelling by jeep as able to access places other vehicles would not have been able to. The lakes of Sete Cidales were beautiful although did not get full impact as sky was cloudy. The scenery was stunning. Our guide Rui spoke excellant English and was very informative about the places we visited and also about way of life on the Islands. Would recommend this tour.

“Brilliant guides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We did two jeep tours with Greenzone (via Picos De Aventura) during our week-long stay in Ponta Delgada. Both times the guides were hugely knowledgable and went out of their way to show us the best sights, despite challenging weather conditions. Going by jeep rather than minibus is definitely the way to see the best of the island, particularly when the mists roll in, as you have a choice of more routes around the hills and volcanoes. The highlights for us were finally seeing the lakes of Sete Cidades (after a very foggy first visit) and Caldeira Velha near Fogo, which looks a bit like a set for Jurassic Park with giant ferns, bubbling ponds and rusty coloured waterfalls.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We did a tour with this company while docked in port on a Celebrity cruise in the fall of 2012. It had a similar itinerary to that of the cruise excursions with a few different routes that big buses could not travel on. The scenery of this island is really the main tourist attraction with lush, botanical views. The guide was a young chap, more quiet then expected of a tour guide but did answer questions when asked. He recommended a restaurant to hit up for lunch but unfortunately when we walked there it was closed. Overall, this is a nice day tour option to see the beauty the island has to offer.

“Greenzone in the Azores”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We took two full-day tours with Greenzone on our recent trip to the Azores. Our tour guide, Eduardo, was the highpoint of our trip. He speaks English very well, and is knowledgeable and fun, and really paid attention to us. The two trips were entertaining and well-orchestrated. The first day there were 6 people, and for the second day we were the only ones on the tour. The lunches were really delicious, and Eduardo recommended restaurants for dinner which we all enjoyed later. We had rented a car for the second day, but opted to take the tour instead because we learned so much the first day. Highly recommended!

“Best Way to See the Island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We took two different trips with our driver, Eduardo Miranda, to Furnas, Sete Cidades, Lagoa do Fogo, tea plantation, pineapple farm, etc. He was a great guy with a fun personality that was very knowledgable about virtually everything on the island. He did a great job tracking the weather, using his skills to rearrange our schedule to avoid the rain and fog. We would recommend Eduardo to anyone!
