    Absolutely the best shore excursion. Cruise excursions were out of the question as we don't like being driven around in massive coaches. On the other hand, our very capable 4x4 driver, Philip, spoke perfect English, and as the cloud cover was bad on our selected trip he persuaded us to choose the west of the island instead. We were so glad he did. He took us to some amazing viewpoints and he was full of very interesting information about his homeland. He and his vehicle took us to places that a coach could NEVER have accessed. I can thoroughly recommend T4W for the sightseeing *trip of a lifetime*

    We had a full day whale watching trip cancelled so wanted to do something else and booked this trip last minute to get out and see some sights of the island. This we did! even though it was only the afternoon our brilliant driver/guide Filipe, took us to some amazing view points that we wouldn't have been taken to on a pre booked commercial trip. Filipe was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our afternoon and got some amazing pictures.

    A simpatia, a disponibilidade e a boa disposição fizeram desta viagem algo a repetir. A t4w merece um distintivo como empresa de animação turística de topo. Obrigado por tudo, foi fantástico. Até à próxima!!

    Our scheduled shore excursion did not happen because high winds on 10/29/19 prevented our cruise ship from docking at Ponta Degada. A very big disappointment for us as we were looking forward to seeing the beautiful scenery we have been reading about. The local tour company responded promptly to my email and provided helpful information so that I could initiate a refund request. Contact with Viator at the end of our cruise resulted in an immediate refund of the cost of the planned excursion. Viator's customer service is outstanding! They went above and beyond what I was expecting and my short telephone contact with them resulted in one happy customer. Can't wait to travel again so I can book excursions with them.

    Tour guide Mariano was great. Really enjoyed his enthusiasm and knowledge. My wife Maureen and I saw wonderful views and received valuable insights about Azores people.

    Our guide was superb. He was so proud of "HIS" island and was a great ambassador. Personable, accommodating, entertaining, and well spoken. A wealth of knowledge and we covered a lot of territory. I am so glad we did not do a cruise ship excursion for this port and went with your group. An outstanding outing and a lot of fun.

    We had the best tour of our entire cruise with Pedro of T4W. The island is beautiful and he knows many hidden gems. Outstanding in every way!!

    Ruben greeted us at the assigned meeting location and time. This was a wonderful excursion that took us to places only a 4x4 could reach and an excursion from the ship could not duplicate. Ruben was a knowledgeable, personable and enthusiastic guide and he was very familiar with the island's history and culture. Don't forget your camera because the views and photo opportunities were incredible! We will be returning to the Azores in May 2020 on another cruise and will be looking to book another excursion with Ruben then.

    We were booked in to go to the Fire Lake but our guide Vera advised that it was really too cloudy and we wouldn’t see anything. We took her advice and left the tour in her hands. It was absolutely brilliant! Going off road in a 4WD we got to see so much more than the bigger vehicles could access. Great day, great guide, I would highly recommend this tour. Thanks Vera.
