          Best tour ever!!
          IF YOU ARE IN THE AZORES DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND BOOK THIS TOUR!!! Samuel is the owner operator of the tour and he was amazing. This is a completely private tour and he will take you anywhere you want in the four hours. If you are unsure he has plenty of options for you so you don't necessarily need to already do research. We had booked a tour of the West side of the island a few days before but weather was not good so all the viewpoints were blocked by clouds . So we decided to try again with Green Corner Tours and we are glad we did. We told Samuel what we actually did get to see already (Sete Ciudades and Pineapple plantation) so he said he won't double up and suggested a West Coast itinerary and it was amazing. He knew all the right places for the best views (which weren't necessarily the main parking viewpoints), he took us off the beaten path in the country side and took us to the north and west coasts with stunning views. He is from Sao Miguel and is super knowledgeable about the island. At the end he offered to drop us off wherever we wanted and we asked for lunch suggestions and he dropped us off at an excellent steak restaurant which was walking distance back to the hotel. Absolutely amazing adventure!!

          Excellent tour to this beautiful waterfall
          Samuel came to pick us up at our hotel and began telling us about the island and answering any questions we had about the Azores! He drove us to a little village near Nordeste. It was a beautiful drive arriving at the beginning of the trail to this waterfall. On the way he explained the significance of the abandon town. We also saw some lovely chickens and roosters on our way. There is a degree of difficulty to this hike but most of it is under the folliage of the trees. Such a breath-taking finish to come to the beautiful waterfall. It took us a few hours and afterwards, Samuel took us for a snack and then we went to the hot springs for a relaxing bath after our hike. Samuel was very accomodating and very informative on all questions about the island. I hightly recommend booking this trip. Samuel is outstanding! He was the best guide we had all week. Make sure you give him as much notice as possible. He books ahead and fills up quickly. Michelle from Canada

          Best day trip to learn it all
          Fantastic tour of the whole Island of Sao Miguel! One of the most informative and memorable tours we have ever taken… local guide Sam is the local to see for a truly wonderful experience!

          Exceptional hiking tour!
          This is an exceptional hiking tour along a beautiful trail through a rustic village and up and down a lush forested mountain. The three waterfalls along the trail are stunning. Samuel, our guide and tour operator, skillfully and safely helped us navigate the terrain and made the most of our experience by telling us about the flora and rock formations along the trail. The Gorreana tea plantation was a lovely stop after a vigorous hike. Samuel’s explanation about tea harvesting and processing was very informative. The warm cup of tea was most welcome!

          Amazing tour and fantastic tour guide, Samuel!
          We were visiting Sao Miguel on an anniversary trip and went on the half day Furnas tour with Samuel without having any real idea what we were going to see. It was even better than we could have imagined. We stopped a few times on the way to Furnas and leaned about the island, some History, etc. The highlight was the hot springs and botanical garden, which we will definitely return to someday, and seeing the Calderas area. Highly recommend for an enjoyable tour!!! Would absolutely use Green Corner Tours again!

          Amazing customized tour!
          Samuel was very nice and informative! I had a guided half day tour to do whatever I choose. He listened to what my likes and dislikes are, and customized a trip for me. I love to hike so he brought me to a beautiful spot with breathtaking views! He even hiked it with me! He’s awesome and I highly recommend using his services

          A Wonderful Day!
          We met Sam on a city tour of Ponta Delgado booked with another company. While the group walked around a botanical garden, I stopped to ask him about the Azores becoming autonomous, its history, the Portuguese language, anything I could think of. He was so personable and interesting, it was a mini-class. When he said he gave private tours with his own company, we jumped at the chance to take a day trip with him. The day was absolutely wonderful! We visited Furnas and went to the hot springs. We went to the place where people bury pots of food that cook with volcanic heat (see photos), we saw breathtaking views, had a delicious lunch, went to a tea factory, and had a fantastic time. Sam is a superlative tour guide. We spent the day talking like new friends, about all the sights , but also about the environment, geography, volcanoes, life in the Azores (he is a native, after all), the economy, politics, his life, our lives, and he answered any question we could think of. It was fascinating and great fun! We have traveled all over the world, and certainly taken a good number of tours. This one will always be extra memorable. I’m sure any tour with Sam would be the same.

          Samuel provided an excellent experience for us.
          Samuel was outstanding! Our 4-hour hiking and tea plantation tour was excellent, all because of Samuel. He provided great information about all sorts of topics. Due to rescheduling the day of our tour, it was just the four of us, and Samuel was very accommodating since two of us weren't up for too much hiking that day. We had a wonderful experience due to Samuel. Thank you!

          We as a family of 11 from ages 9 to 88 absolutely loved Sam and his full day tour- he was so informative, friendly, and accommodating - the tour hit so many excellent sites and Sam caught many shots of our adventures and shared numerous stories- an A+ guide on a must A+ trip!!

          Wonderful tour and guide
          We had a wonderful time and learned so much! The views are amazing and our guide was very helpful with taking us to the must-see places and he was very knowledgeable. I also appreciated that he is a local. Our guide was very accommodating and kind. It was an all day tour but there was so much to see and explore.

          Awesome 2 tours with Green Corner Tours
          It was a fantastic morning with our tour guide, Samuel. He was so efficient, yet laid back, as he planned our tour to Furnas, the tea plantation, and hot springs. We learned a lot about the island from him - who better than from a native of the Azores, right? He was attentive to our needs the whole time, finding the best picture spots, checking if we need a restroom or water, and more. He offered to snap our family photos, using different photo and video modes and features. He was so good at taking panoramic photos that we called them the “Sam Special”. We enjoyed this tour so much that we booked another tour with him a couple of days later called The Moinho do Felix hike. As we hiked through nature, we saw 3 beautiful waterfalls, the north coast, green valleys, and an old water mill. Another MUST see tour with Samuel. We made lots of memories here in Sao Miguel - thanks for that and for the laughs as we shared our corny jokes, Sam!

          Sao Miguel island of paradise
          Our tour was on June 2023. The day was overcast with & on & off rain showers. The tour was beyond our expectations. Weather did not dampen our spirits. Our guide was Samuel, who is well knowledge, he had interesting stories and was able to answer all of our questions.

          Outstanding São Miguel Guided Tours
          We did several tours with Samuel of Green Corner Tours while on the island of São Miguel recently, including Sete Cidades, Furnas, and a Ponta Delgada city tour. I can't recommend Sam enough. He is knowledgeable, friendly, gracious, accommodating, and speaks English fluently. Despite some days of inclement weather, Sam filled our days with fun, humor, good food, local artisans, and interesting sights to see. Sam's guided tours enhanced our trip to São Miguel immeasurably! If you're looking for a guide in the Azores, look no further. Green Corner Tours is outstanding.

          Green Corner Tours on Sao Miguel
          Follow up review. I went on a tour with Green Corner Tours last year. I wrote that I would definitely call Sam again when I returned to Sao Miguel. I returned and I called Sam for a private tour. We had a great time and Sam again did a fine job of showing us this wonderful island. Highly recommend Sam and Green Corner.
