Another excellent day touring Sao Miguel with Andy as our guide! On this trip we visited Sete Cidades and the surrounding area - breathtaking views from the rim of the crater and a stunning drive through the small villages surrounding the lake (complete with lunch at a fantastic spot on the water). Andy checked the weather forecast and brought us to the best spots for an unobstructed view. A stop at one of Europe’s only tea growers - Cha Gorreana - where you may walk through the beautiful fields, watch the production process and sit and savor their teas - a wonderful way to end our tour. This was our second booking with Azores Connections. On our first trip to the Azores in 2019 Andy brought us to see the town of Furnas and the Parque Terra Nostra.. We loved it so much we stayed there on this trip, with the hot springs available to us at any time right outside our door (Parque Terra Nostra Hotel). Andy generously shares his knowledge of the history, geology and culture of the island. I can highly recommend Azores Connections. .We will be booking our future tours of the Azores through Azores Connections. Thank you again!

Andy is the perfect tourguide. He picks up what you would like very easily. He looks very carefully to the weatherforecast to plan your trip. So you experience all the sites at the best possible conditions. We spent three days with Andy and he showed us all the best sites of the island. Amazing. We could not wish for anything more. Thank you so much for a pefect holiday. Emmeli

Our honeymoon in the Azores was absolutely perfect thanks to Andy and Laura! They were extremely helpful and professional from the start, allowing us to have a care-free week on Sao Miguel after the stress leading up to our wedding. Andy personally led us on a tour of Furnas, which was one of our favorite experiences on the island. He is very knowledgeable about the history of the island and was the perfect tour guide. We cannot recommend Azores Connections enough - they were able to craft the perfect vacation for us and made the entire experience stress-free. There aren't enough stars to give!

Andy really exceeded our group's expectations with the planning and execution of our private tour. First, he planned out an itinerary that worked for a group ranging in age from 6 to almost 60. This was accomplished with only a broad list of things that we saw online, and a list of our interests. We were all happy with his original plan, and moved forward with that. Then, COVID times hit and Andy gallantly rescheduled our itinerary three times due to flight/arrival changes. From our end, it looked easy, but I am sure coordinating multiple vendors for schedule changes was no easy feat. He did all this with a "no worries" attitude. Everything after arrival went smoothly, all vendors picked us up as scheduled, all activities were well organized. We even spent two days with Andy as our guide. He was quite informative, allowing us flexibility in our schedule, answering all our questions, and providing much information on the island. He was also quickly available during our stay for all questions. Activities planned included: gin tasting, canyoning, scuba diving, snorkeling with dolphins, hot springs visits, tea plantation visit, lunches, kayaking, horseback riding, and visits to see natural beauty. All in all, I will recommend Andy to everyone. Top notch service.
