    Amazing tour! João is a wonderful tour guide! He was incredibly patient with our kids, made sure to show us the best views, and treated us as if we were his personal guests! We made many stops for the breathtaking sites of the island. The restaurant experience was fabulous, with delicious stew being cooked in volcanic steam. João made us feel very welcome, and was very engaging with children. Would love to go on another tour with him.

    It really was a perfect tour. The scenery was beautiful, the stops very interesting, lunch was delicious and unique, and best of all, Leo was a wonderful guide. He was knowledgeable, attentive to everyone in his care, and he paced the day exceptionally well. It was a day to remember.

    João was a fabulous guide. So much knowledge of and enthusiasm for his island. The tour was awesome. Would highly recommend it.

    The tour was simply amazing, despite the weather. The island has so much to offer, and Felipe, our tour guide, made sure that we got the most out of it. The lunch that was offered was also delicious!

    What a wonderful day! Joao introducedme to many amazing sights on this beautiful island. He was fun to spend the day with and very knowledgeable about all things Azorean. I highly recommend this tour.

    This was a small group tour of only 8 people. The guide Fernando was very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. The weather cooperated and we were able to enjoy most of the sites. Lunch was delicious!!

    I had the pleasure of participating in this tour on my second day in Ponta Delgada, the day after participating in the tour of the West. Pure Azores operates both tours and I had the joy of having the same driver and guide for both, Phillipe. He was informative, courteous, accomodating, and overall excellent. The weather did not cooperte with us as much as I would have liked to, but we made the most of it, and still managed to have a great time! Lunch in Furnas was outstanding, and each site was more beautiful than the last. Overall, very happy I picked Pure Azores to show me the best of this magnificent island. 10/10 would recommend!

    We were a group of 6 on this tour. We all had an amazing time. We stopped in so many beautiful places and learned so much about the island from our wonderful and knowledgeable guide Miguel. I would definitely recommend this tour. Great value for your money.

    Since the beginning our guide communicates with all the people of our group of 8 from different countries very well. Thanks to him we got acquainted with each other and communicated well during the whole trip. The tour gave to mea whole lot of impressions - and views, and nature, and info from the guide. Taking hot springs was also relaxing and was worth of visiting. Thanks for the lunch also. Happy about my choice of the operator and tour.

    My tour guide was João and he was excellent!! He spoke English really well and was very knowledgeable about his hometown. I learned and saw more than I expected on this tour. We stopped at various spots throughout the east side of the island. João was even nice enough to call the bus station to make sure I can take a bus back to my home. I would recommend this tour to everyone, it exceeded my expectations!!!
