“Great Value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2014 NEW

We booked Amazing Tours for two days. One trip was out to Furnas, the other to Sete Cidades & Logoa do Fogo. Our tour guide, Carlos, went out of his way to make our trip fun and informative. Carlos was very knowledgeable and told us many things about the island that we never would have learned or seen had we rented a car and drove ourselves. We swam in the hot springs, saw the cozido being pulled out of the ground, went to a fabulous restaurant for lunch both days. The second day when we went to Sete Cidades and Logoa do Fogo was very foggy. We didn't get to see as much scenery because of the weather. But Carlos did his best to show us around. I would highly recommend Amazing Tours.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2014

A must do tour of the Azores. We had perfect weather and Ricardo was an excellent guide. We saw many, many sites in the Azores and never felt rushed.

“Great Days Out Ricardo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2014

My wife and I had our first visit to the Azores early December. Booked two full day tours and glad we did. Ricardo does an amazing job and excellent value for money. We didn't see everything, but most of the Island. We were made to feel very welcome and special from the moment he picked us up from the airport. The azores still has a long way to go to rival Madeira for tourism, but with people like Ricardo it will succeed. It is a shame that our hotel could not match this. We wish you all the best for the future Ricardo.

“"Amazing" with Ricardo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2014

We had a "too short" of a stop in the city of Ponta Delgada on the Island of Sao Miguel Azores, Portugal. Researching on Trip Advisor and hearing all the wonderful things that were said about this company, led us to booking a morning tour. There was only the 2 of us, but thanks to "Cruise Critic" we hooked up with three other couples. We were picked up at the dock and was fortunate to have Ricardo as our guide. He was wonderful and I can't say enough about how great he conducted our excursion. The sights were magnificent and we were lucky to have good weather. Can't wait to go back and see more with this company/ hopefully with Ricardo, although I'm sure all the guides are super. The entire experience was "AMAZING"!

“Two wonderful days of touring!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I were in Sao Miguel for two days and we had pre-planned the tours through emails with Amazing Tours from here in the USA. Carlos was our guide and companion. He was wonderful throughout all the time we spent with him. We can't say enough about how accommodating he was through the whole time showing us all we had asked to see and more. He was waiting for us when our flight arrived at 7am. Our hotel had a 2pm checkin, so while we had a stop for some coffee, he made a phone call and got the hotel to check us in early, which was great and after that we started our scheduled tour. The weather wasn't cooperative but we had a wonderful day. He was very informative and interesting. We stopped for lunch, had an amazing meal and wonderful afternoon touring this beautiful island! Our last day we had another tour and again, Carlos did not disappoint us, he was fantastic showing us another part of the island before driving us to the airport for our flight home. Thank You so much for a wonderful experience! This tour company is worth every penny! Do not hesitate to book with them!!!
