        Great Half Day Van Tour!
        As a lifelong native, Paolo was very informative. His English was great and his knowledge of the island and its history was impressive. We were fortunate to be the only guests, so he was able to accommodate our requests to stop for pictures/shopping. He ensured that we saw the highlights of the island including cheese tasting, a drive to the top of Santa Barbara volcano, and a visit to see the waves crashing at Ponta dos Biscoitois. Thanks for a memorable morning!

        Full service tour guide!
        We wanted to do a walking tour of Angro to orient ourselves but could not find a slot until our last full day on the island. But even though we'd already gone around a lot by ourselves, Andre was a great guide who helped us understand a lot more about the geography and history of the island and the town. Better still, we ended up having a private tour with him (priceless!) so he kind of tailored things and answered all our questions. He's super personable, his English is great, and he's actually a marine biologist so even though we were on land, he told us a lot about the marine life. Great guy. Highly recommend! Also, so we did not have to scale a steep hill, he had a colleague drop us at the highest point of the tour and walk down from there. Great idea since it was hot. And then gave us some great recommendations for ice cream and dinner later. Full service tour guide.

        Volcano tour is a treat
        This tour gives you a snapshot of visiting 3 different venues of past volcanic activity. Our guide Andre did a great job in explaining the history of the formation of the Azores.

        Go on tours with Andre
        We were provided a ride transfer from Terceira Mar Hotel to the airport by Sea Adventures. Andre, our van driver was 5 minutes early, very prompt and professional. Andre was a great safe driver, and he spoke good things about Terceira. My husband and I have been to Terceira a few times, but we have avoided coming when street bull events/ festival is on. But Andre spoke convincingly about the fun facts of the street bulls including the June festivities. And now we gave to come back during June to experience what he told us. Andre is also a tour guide for Sea Adventures for many years. I just wish we were able to go on some tours with him. He expressed in one way or the other his love / devotion/ knowledge of his birthplace.

        A Great experience
        It was very cool to be inside a volcano and beautiful. The experience not something you can do in other places. It was safe, and educational.

        Wonderful Tour!
        We had a great tour with Andre! Personable and knowledgeable, Andre shared his passion and depth of knowledge of all things Terceira and Azores, not just geology, but flora, fauna, history, culture and more. We learned so much from Andre and had fun at the same time. Highly recommended!

        Andre is the best!
        My friend and I took the Sea Advenetures Volcanic Experience tour with Andre as our guide and OMG! Once in a life-time memories! Andre was personable and engaging; he went out of his way to make sure we had a memoriable tour. Plus he was knowlledgable about all aspects of the lava tube and volcano itself. I highly recommend this tour and this guide ---

        3 amazing and stunning locations, well worth visiting.
        3 amazing and stunning locations, well worth visiting. The guide was lovely and was knowledgeable about plants but wasn’t quite as knowledgeable about what we were seeing in the volcano as I’d have liked and she didn’t come very far down with us into the main volcano, so I wished I’d had the audio guide and headphones that other visitors had. It was all so impressive and fascinating I definitely left wanting to know more. The final stop to a cheese place/shopping opportunity was a bit of an odd end to an impressive trip - I think rather than this being a “surprise” it would be best to check if visitors actually want to do this - we didn’t - and I’d have much preferred an ice cream than cheese!

        Fantastic family SUP experience
        Eduardo and Andre were fantastic hosts for this 3 hour experience. We had never done SUP before and they took our family of 3 (14 yr old daughter) and made it so much fun. I didn't expect we would all be confidently managing it on the Ocean but we were!

      Great way to see the beauty of the Azores. Descending a mountain. Not a lengthy ride but pleasant way to immerse yourself in nature. Stop at the cheese factory was enjoyable.

      The description of this tour should be:
      “Road Bike Downhill on a mountain bike - someone drops you off with mountain bikes at the top of a hill, and you follow the guide who drives in a car in front of you on the road.”

      For what it was, we had fun. But this is not mountain biking, and there is no tour guide. If the description was accurate we would give a higher review.

      The guide was nice to us, but his only purpose was transportation up the hill with the bikes. He drove in the car in front of us as we coasted down a very scenic hill with wonderful views. The guide took pictures for us as we stopped occasionally. We road next to goats and cows, and took back roads all the way down to our hotel. The guide was native to the island, and was nice but did not talk much.

      The “cheese factory” was a small store that sold cheese on the side of the road. We sampled 4 cheeses in plastic bins near the entrance, then we ate a platter of a cheese selected for us. The staff at this store did not acknowledge we were there at all. We would be perfectly fine skipping this part of the tour.

      We made it down the hill all the way back to our hotel, which was pretty cool. The last few miles were not downhill and required some up hill next to cars, but it wasn’t too bad.

      Hello Thank you for your evaluation. Normally our guide rides down the hill along with clients. The reason when he goes down on the van is when we may suspect that the weather can present bad conditions and clients may want to finish the ride inside the van. We also had some clients that prefer to go in family by themselves and stope only in main points of interest to have guide explanation... but this will always depend on clients. Like I told before almost 90% of the times we go by the client side like you can see on all other reviews from this trip.
