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.
