Itinerary and lodging help!

We will be visiting Sao Miguel the end of November from Tuesday-Sunday. This is a last minute trip and we are still trying to finalize our plans.

1) We are thinking of spending a couple of night in Ponta Delgata area and then maybe another couple in Furnas. Is that a good plan? Should we consider another area other than Furnas?

2) For lodging we are still trying to decide between getting a flat a little more in the countryside or a hotel? Any recommendations? Is the Talisman a good choice for being in the city center and close to restaurants and cafes or is it better to stay a little outside of the city?

3) Lastly we are thinking of doing a couple of half-day private tours so that we can have plenty of time to explore on our own as well. I would like to do the Sete Cidades, and for the second one maybe around Furnas. Would those be good with a guide or would you recommend others?

I appreciate all the help!

were flying back for a 2nd trip and staying at my favorite place Pico Do Refugio, its on northern coast, but still only 15 minutes to Ponta, aslo really like Lapsa B and B for a nice basic place in Ponta, I like staying at a few places given the island is not so big, were doing 3 nights at Pico Do Refugio, and 2 nights in Furnas, this seem seems to be a perfect blend for us, enjoy, were flying out tonight, enjoy!!

For lodging look at this site for some "inspiration" casasacorianas.com/azores/…

I think that if you're going to explore the island on our own, the easiest are exactly Sete Cidades and Fogo lagoons, so take a private tour to a more remote place or a tour that will take you to see/experience something typical from the island, personalize your tour. azoreantours.com/tours/…

If you are still looking for an itinerary, there is a specialist tour operator in the UK www.azoreschoice.com which organises tailormade trips to the Azores with tours to the crater lakes.

Hope that's helpful!
