Friendly, reliable, safety conscious and very, very informative is the best way to describe our tour of the island provided by Marco. We are a family with an age range of 13 to 80, and Marco managed to ensure that his tour included something that would be of interest to everyone, from history to geography, sport to agriculture. He was... More

We had a good first day tour of Sao Miguel and had reasonable amount of time spent at each location. The car was comfortable but with a hint of cigarette smell (not a deal breaker for me). Our driver was fine. Maybe it was an off day for him but our conversations were sometimes awkward. Nevertheless, a worthwhile tour to... More

We booked Azorean Tours for our last day on the island of Sao Miguel. Gary picked us up from our hotel and quickly gained an understanding of what we had already seen, what we would like to see and the best time of day to visit, as it was a sunny day and being keen photographers, we wanted to make...

We are students from Toronto, Canada and we had an 11 hour layover in Ponta Delgada. Carlos took us around and made our layover fly by. He is very knowledgable about the island and very easy to talk to. Carlos really was the highlight of the tour! Loved Fire Lake -- and pack swimming trunks! David and Moe

Marco was an amazing tour guide. Very knowledgeable about the island. He was a historian, plant expert & local food guide. We had their day trip one & two, which allowed us to see most of the main island of San Miguel. The Fire lake was great & we had a perfect day for pictures. We went to the hot... More

He was on time, nice and really wanted his clients to get an experience of the island. Very accommodating what the client wanted to see and if they didn't have anything in mind he would recommend things to see. Always keeping us on our toes and informative. Would recommend to anyone!

Myself and my family recently spent 6 hours with Gary on a tour around Sao Miguel. He was friendly and very knowledgeable, and went to great effort to pack in as much as he could which would be of interest to my children (aged 8 & 9), my husband and myself. I would highly recommend Gary and his company for... More

We landed in San Miguel without any preparation of what to do. Luckily the taxi driver from the airport is a tour guide with Azorean Tours. So instantly we got a guide and a car, the price is very reasonable, not much more expensive than a big rental car. Marcus, being born and raised in the island, knows everything about... More

We went with Marco on 2 tours. The first one is the sunrise tour at Nordeste. Marco arrived early but he let us finished breakfast before starting the tour. The driving to Nordeste is challenging before sunrise. The road is narrow and dark so I highly recommended hiring a professional to do the job. The experience was pleasant and we... More

We toured with Gary T. of Azorean Tours for two of the 4 rainy days on Sao Miguel, Azores. We so appreciated the effort that Gary put into working the tours around the weather's limitations and in listening to our interests. Just 'roll with the punches' and Gary will come up with something! We ended up seeing and hiking places... More
