The Greenzone jeep tours were the highlight of our end of May 2013 trip to the Azores. We booked the excursions to Furnas, Sete Cidades and Lagoa do Fogo, leaving from the hotel at 9:00am and returning at 5:30pm.; a tremendous value. The natural beauty of Sao Miguel and its stunning vistas is more accessible when traveling off the beaten path in a four wheel drive vehicle. The jeeps (Land Rovers) also can maneuver through narrow village streets and rural paths. Our tour guide on our day long adventures was Eduardo, who was very informative, enthusiastic and personable, displaying important Azorean talents at both weather prediction and cow calling. He kept us one step ahead of low cloud ceilings, altering routes to ensure optimum viewing. He is also very knowledgeable regarding the island’s geology, history and traditions. In Furnas, the fact that he knows the shortcuts to get you from the cooking calderas to the restaurant so you can enjoy the first servings of the cozido is a definite plus. If we return to Sao Miguel, we wouldn’t hesitate to explore other areas of the island using Greenzone Azores tours.

Today we made the trip with Eduardo "Sete Cidades & Lagoa do Fogo". It was awesome - everything was explained into the smallest details (Flora & Fauna). He made a lot of stopps, so we could take a lot of photos. He showed us parts of the island which we never would have found by ourselves and a fantastic lunch was included to tour. We had 8 hours of fun paired with incredible nature and fantastic explanations. If we can manage, we'll make another tour before leaving. Thank you very very much.

I did 3 full days of tours, and took a thousand photos.

Edwardo the tour guide was amazing and took us to all the best view points, even though the weather was not great.

We ate great food and with a jeep tour as opposed to coach tours we stopped off more places and went up and down some really fablous dirt tracks that you would never get a bus on.

The highlight was Furnes and the hot springs which we had a chance to bath in, it's pure heaven and makes you feel 20 years younger, just remember to tale ur bathing costume and a towel.

I would recommend the tours with this company as I could not have had a happier 3 days and saw pretty much moat of the island.

Cheers Edwardo

We did this tour while cruising with NCL. It was really well organiised our guide Rui was waiting for as we walked off the ship and we were away before any of the organised trips. There were definate benefits of travelling by jeep as able to access places other vehicles would not have been able to. The lakes of Sete Cidales were beautiful although did not get full impact as sky was cloudy. The scenery was stunning. Our guide Rui spoke excellant English and was very informative about the places we visited and also about way of life on the Islands. Would recommend this tour.

We did two jeep tours with Greenzone (via Picos De Aventura) during our week-long stay in Ponta Delgada. Both times the guides were hugely knowledgable and went out of their way to show us the best sights, despite challenging weather conditions. Going by jeep rather than minibus is definitely the way to see the best of the island, particularly when the mists roll in, as you have a choice of more routes around the hills and volcanoes. The highlights for us were finally seeing the lakes of Sete Cidades (after a very foggy first visit) and Caldeira Velha near Fogo, which looks a bit like a set for Jurassic Park with giant ferns, bubbling ponds and rusty coloured waterfalls.
