The kindest, most hospitable and passionate guide you can get!
Jun 2021 • Friends
As I was originally planning to travel to São Miguel for Easter on my own, I had contacted Paulo at FUNtastic Azores tours to organise a couple of excursions. Paulo was incredibly helpful and responsive - and he was the one who contacted me to cancel the tours due to last minute Covid restrictions. Thanks to him, I managed to postpone my trip by a few months, and ended up travelling a few months later with a friend.
During the 4 days that we spent in São Miguel, we went on 3 tours arranged by FUNtastic Azores tours: the full day walking tour around Sete Cidades with picnic; the full walking tour around the Furnas volcano; and the evening tour at Furnas, with local dinner followed by hot springs.
Each of these tours was uniquely superb - not only due to the beauty of the landscape but also thanks the attention and care that our guide Paulo provided to us from the moment he picked us up to the moment he dropped us back at our hotel.
I even asked if we could add a couple of stops to go visit the pineapple and tea plantations (which were not originally planned in the tours) and Paulo seamlessly incorporated those to the route, sharing a lot of interesting information about each place (so much so that I started taking notes on my phone!).
In summary, I strongly recommend FUNtastic Azores tours to anyone who is interested to have a relaxed, active (or not!) and interesting stay in São Miguel.
