We had a great experience and enjoyed the trip. Our guide Joao was knowledgeable and entertaining. He really wanted us to have a good time. As we were only a few people on the trip, we were more flexible with the timing as it was occasionally raining. So we could best enjoy the beautiful landscape and breathtaking views! We can definitely recommend the trip!

What a great way to see the island! Understanding the history and folklore of the area, along side the sheer beauty of the sites was amazing! And our tour guide Joao was the BEST—funny, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. I am very thankful to Joao!…on top of just being amazing, Joao gave me his jacket for the entire day when he noticed I was not dressed for the weather (I don’t recommend shorts and a tank top in high altitude November weather😅)
Lunch was amazing—all you can eat local dishes including beef, pork and fish, various sides, green wine (sooooo good), soft drinks, various juice, and your choice of dessert (the cheesecake is heavenly!)
When visiting the Azores, book this tour and ask for Joao!!! You won’t regret it!!!!

it is a great one day excursion if you are stopping over on the sao Miguel island . Our guide Phillip is such a wonderful guy with all the local informations all the way around . The itinerary is really well - designed to cover the major viewpoints of the island . You have Mountain View , lake view , ocean sight . And the famous garden is amazing . We spent pretty much time enjoying all the beauty over there though we don’t enjoy the thermal pool in this trip .

The weather changes quickly ,but he prepares the umbrella , masks for us , which is really helpful .

Thank u again , Phillip for your amazing service .

Before I go I book this travel agency, very fast confirmed my book and send the message. Pick up me front of my hostel. The tour guide Filipe really active and enthusiastic person, really tell everything. Pick up more two person, after we go to first stop Ananases A Arruda. Very interesting place. After we go to Miradouro do Pico do Carvão, Miradouro da Boca do Inferno, Miradouro da Vista do Rei all is so amazing, beautiful place. After go to take a lunch in Restaurante Lagoa Azul. Very friendly and delicious place. After continuous the trip to Miradouro da Ponta do Escalvado, Miradouro do Pico da Barrosa. We stop to Centro de Interpretação Ambiental da Caldeira Velha is beautiful thermal bath, only problem we don't have to much time try and swim in here little. Final stop Miradouro do Cintrão. It's same incredibly place. After we go back to punta delgada.

Amazing experience, Joao was such a lovely guide. He drove us over the whole island throughout the course of the day and he really could not have been more informative and helpful. Having a local guide really helped too, as he grew up on the island he knew anything and everything about the island so at any moment we could ask him and he would have the answer. He was also so nice the whole day, chatting with us and making us comfortable.

His English was also very good, which meant we were able to understand everything he said without needing to ask once!

Highly recommended this tour with Joan! I had an amazing time and truly appreciate the beauty of Azores. The itinerary was very well thought out so we did not rush in any of the stops. Joan is very knowledgeable and passionate in providing us stories and details in each stop. Overall I can not recommend this tour enough!

This tour was amazing! Besides it being absolutely beautiful it was our tour guide Miguel that made it 5 star. Miguel was very informative and took the time to answer any questions and customize our tour. He was very helpful and I would highly recommend a tour with Miguel!

I have been in this tour now for two times. The first time (in July) was an incredible experience! It was my first day after arriving to São Miguel the west and the north part of this fabulous island opened in front of my eyes in a way that I never could expect!

Our guide, excellent driver Fernando, knew the routes to drive and though the weather wasn't the best possible, it actually didn't made the trip any worse. I still felt that I saw more than enough, heard a great amount of information, stories, even legends...Fernando's knowledge was amazing! In the end of the day I just hoped, that I could do it once again...

And when I came to Azores for the second time (in October), I had that amazing experience again with the same guide, Fernando.

The main attractions were the same than in my first trip, but the routes were different and the weather just perfect.I enjoyed even more because I already knew the basics and it I understood a bit more of what I saw.

Though the guide was the same, the stories weren't. Of course he told all the information related to the places we visited, but the group was different, so he adapted in different needs and shared his knowledge in a way it served us the best way.

I have travelled quite a bit and I am not really big fan of the group travelling, but these two trips made a big differens in that: The guide knew how face the needs of the group, he was like a host for his guests, even remembered everyone's names!

I can warmly recommend this for everyone!
