We booked a tour as two groups of 4 through a cruise critic roll call. I had also been told by a friend, who had done the trip before, that he was the best guide! We were picked up promptly from our ship, having been able to all meet up onboard beforehand and within 15 minutes of going ashore announcement,... More

We took two tours with Carlos, Gary's right-hand man. Besides showing us so many amazing things in San Miguel, Carlos also picked us up from the airport, drove us between hotels and then dropped us off at the airport when it was time to go home. We decided not to rent a car and it was great to never have... More

Gary conducted his tour in a very professional manner. Our family truly enjoyed his insights and narratives throughout the tour. He was friendly, knowledgeable, on time and very passionate about his work. His tour was comprehensive but not rushed. His website described in detail the various tour options available and we received what he advertised. There were no unpleasant surprises.... More

After spending 2 days with Gary touring the opposite sides of San Miguel, we feel like he's family! That's how he treated us...courteous, friendly, funny and considerate, Gary was as excited to show us his island as he would a long-lost relative! The views, cultural centers and sites Gary chose were exciting, educational, interesting and fun. Gary got us into... More

We took two 1-day tours around Sao Miguel with Gary and we absolutely loved both of them! Gary knows the nicest places to visit, including restaurants. He customized both tours to our interests, which included a very long visit to a local winery (yes, there is a winery there!). We'd highly recommend Gary to anyone who is considering a stay... More

Booking a tour through e-mail with Gary was very easy and efficient. We chose the Furnas-Nordeste full day tour with Carlos. Me, my wife and our two daughters had a really pleasant day and Carlos gave us a very complete overview over the many different sides of this beautiful island.
