The views of the old volcano site and the lakes were terrific and well worth the tour. Post cards are a must as photos taken from the ground do not catch the drama of the views. If you happen to catch a tour including the pineapple plantation don't feel bad if it starts raining. The pineapples were "growing" in old greenhouses that needed weeding. Our guides english was limited and questions were beyond his skill level.

My family and I liked the tour of Sete Cidades so much we opted for an additional day at Furnas both with Greenzone. Our guide not only spoke perfect English and was able to fully describe all sites in detail but was kind-hearted, honest and humorous! The jeeps on both days were very clean with safety belts and the guide drove very safe. The meals included in both tours were "out of this world" amazing. I've never tasted anything like it. The best part about my trip was the tours from Greenzone. Thanks guys for such a unforgettable experience.

We (family of four) took a half day trip to Sete Cidades. Really enjoyed it, driver Daniel was excellent but unfortunately we picked a wet, misty day and at times could see no further than the hedges either side of the track when at high altitude! Still, the British are used to that sort of thing and it's no fault of Greenzone. Good mixutre of road and off-road routes. Would certainly recommend.

Arranged this tour as independent travellers rather than taking the orgasnised cruise tour and I am so pleased we did. From all accounts they did not see the lakes where as we took the jeep (5 of us in total) and our wonderful guide was able to navigate by watching the weather to try to avoid the clouds and mist. We saw a whole lot more for half the price of the organised tour and we travel down lanes where a coach could not access. Excellent value for money, would highly recommend.

I took a jeep tour of the Nordeste part of San Miguel with the friendly, knowledgable and thoroughly accommodating tour guide and photographer Eduardo.

This tour was 5 star. We saw incredible examples of natural beauty, lagoons, mountains, natural thermal baths!

What was amazing was how Eduardo understood the weather and the clouds so we reached the location whether it was low level or high level and had a great view!

Take these tours!
