Wow! This tour greatly exceeded our expectations! I can not recommend a tour with Jose enough! We did a whole day tour and it was packed with great information, education about the island and culture, good food, great views and so much more. Jose is very passionate about what he does and he personalizes the tour based on what interests your group. We had mentioned wanting to get some art while on Sao Miguel and he took us to an amazing place. We saw so much more of the island than we ever imagined we would see. He was very accommodating in picking us up from our hotel in Furnas. These tours are a great value. I will recommend Carpe Diem tours to anyone I know going to Sao Miguel.

We loved our tour with Jose so much that we asked for a go-back to some of the sights. Jose's passion for the land, its people and history is amazing. We loved hearing about the legends of the Azores, sharing lunch in an off-beaten spot, and learning about Jose's love of his pups. We can recommend this tour whole-heartedly. It was an amazing experience!!

We did three tours with Jose and each one was better than the previous. His knowledge of the island is extensive and he is so respectful of the natural beauty of his home. He was engaging and enthusiastic about everything spot he showed us. He made the trip an absolute pleasure. He took us to spots that if he hadn't had a 4wd jeep we never would have seen the amazing sunsets and or visited the white castle. He was good at telling you upfront what other cost would be like lunch and going to the thermal baths. He was very gracious with his time and also has snacks and water for you. I highly recommend that when you visit Sao Miguel you seek out Carpe Diem Dream tours and Jose.
