About
You didn´t have the time to read your guidebook and want to see as much as possible of the island in a day? If you don´t want to rent a car, or just want to relax and stay away from having to navigate in a foreign place, just let a local like me do this for you. Believe me it is a great way for you to get to know the ways around the island. I know the island better than no other, and I will take you to all of our favorite places around: volcanos, thermal pools, waterfalls, lakes and breathtaking viewpoints. I will show and explain to you this little natural paradise I call home, in the way I myself like to see it and experience it. You can choose to navigate the Center & West or Center & East of the island. It is not possible to see all of the island in one day, but you can book this experience twice for 2 full days of exploring all the island.

Perfection! Incredible 2 days in Sao Miguel with Carlos
Oct 2019
I can't praise Carlos and his daughter, Monique enough. Truly a once in a lifetime experience with this beautiful family. My husband, adult daughter and I came as strangers/travelers and left feeling like family. Monique was delightful to deal with planning our time on Sao Miguel - accommodating, warm, insightful, and creative! Carlos gave us 110% , providing the perfect blend of anecdotes, history, expertise and fun. We didn't have the best weather but the sun felt like it was always shining with Carlos with us!

Fabulous
Sep 2019
I wish I could give 100 stars. I set this tour up for my mom who has mobility issues. She can walk but not long distances. Carlos was our tour guide, (Monique's dad). He went out of his way to park close and even help her out of the car and up stairs. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the island and pointed out many many local sights. He is a history professor. My tour was cancelled so I joined my mom and I'm so glad I did. While the weather was not cooperative the whole trip (common for Azores) we saw other sights that we didn't know that we'd be able to see. Carlos was prepared with towels and water in the car and even bought us a few local snacks along the way. If you only have 1 day on the island, this is a great way to see a lot in a short time.
