  • AMAZING TOUR! Leon was incredible! This experience was one of the greatest I've had in any island or any country. This island is clearly gorgeous but Leon's extensive knowledge of São Miguel highlights the already incredible beauty of it. He takes you to the best viewpoints and tells you so much about the history and culture. He takes his time, doesn't rush and will recommend many other things for you to do and see on the island. Would recommend 100%! This is the only tour you need to book. Worth way more than the price. Fantastic experience!

  • Unbelievable! Four in our tour group, knowledgeable driver, the most beautiful scenery. VIsit the Azores.

  • This was an amazing half-day trip. The driver was very friendly and provided us with a lot of interesting commentary on the history of Ponta Delgada and the difference sights. We saw several sights in the half-day we spent on this tour. I would highly recommend this tour to others who want to get a feel for the beautiful lakes and foliage that surround this island.

  • We were fortunate in that the other couple who had booked this tour did not show up, so we had what amounted to a private tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide. Additionally, being in a small vehicle allowed us to get to places that the big tour buses off the ship could not get to.

  • Our tour guide Leoncio was amazing!! He was very friendly and knowledgeable, and showed us places we would've gotten lost had we tried to navigate ourselves! We rented at car, but we only used it twice! Much better to experience this lush green and stunning island with a local guide.

  • Great Tour. This tour was a duplicate of a cruise tour that was sold out before we could book. But this tour was better. We had a private driver, who was very familiar with the island, gave us a tour of some things that we would not have seen on the ship tour. We kept one step ahead of the cruise bus, which meant we saw things first and without the crowds. The Azores are amazing, we will definitely return again and use this tour operator again on another part of the island. Cannot say enough on the beauty and the tour we had.

  • Unfortunately we had bad weather but we enjoyed our guide and he made the best of it for us.

  • Our tour guide was excellent! Very proud of his country. Really took the time to make sure we saw everything and enjoyed......

  • We were able to see many great sights all over the western side of the island. Due to typically Azorean weather there were initially clouds at the top of the craters but our guide quickly rearranged the itinerary so we could come back later when the weather cleared.

  • Sarah is the best tour guide imaginable. She was sensitive to our time constraint but packed our experience full of cool things to see. Fully bilingual too.
