“Taxi Drive around the Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

We walked out of the Pousada da Horta and into a cab and had an amazing drive around the Island. Our driver took us up to the top of the cloud covered Caldeira. Upon reaching the top, the sun broke throuigh the clouds and gave us spectacular views down into the Volcano. Definitely worth the trip and a little extra for the driver to personalise the tour for us!
