    Dani is an excellent guide. She can tell you about all the other islands and what to do on each island. They are all worth a visit. She looks after the group effortlessly. This is a challenging, technical hike. Steep slopes with wet cobble stones, you will need your poles to dig in. You don't need to be a strong hiker but you do need to be careful on the descents. You will see a pretty waterfall and an abandoned village. You will have to do the tour to find out why the village is abandoned.

    Tres bon accueil de Diego qui est une personne vraiment interressante qui prend le temps de répondre à nos questions tel un expert natif de l île. Et superbe marche avec de jolis points de vue menant à une jolie cascade et des piscines naturelles ou l on peut se baigner ce que j ai fait naturellement. Je conseille fortement cette activité.

    Amazing hike in the region of Faial da Terra! Our guide Diogo was very nice, funny, accommodating to our needs and he taught us a lot of facts avout the region. He even took pictures of the group and sent them to us after the activity! I highly recommend this trip (and our guide Diogo!). Amazing views, animals on the way, nice swim in the waterfall. Don't forget your bathing suit! Really enjoyed my day, thanks!! :)

    Great activity, amazing scenery and ,of course,would never be the same without our amazing tour guide Diogo. Energetic and extremely friendly Diogo made us feel very welcomed and helped us to create unforgettable memories. He has a great sense of humor, knows a lot about nature. We wish him the best

    Um dia bem muito bem passado com o Diogo! Ambiente descontraido, pude aprender varias coisas sobre a fauna local, historia e habitos da regiao e da ilha. A repetir numa proxima viagem!

    We did the sanguinho tour with a fantastic guide called Thiago! My son of nine loved him. Some good climbs but as a reward you can swim right into the waterfall (very cold water). We also visited sanguinho, abandonned village. Thanks Thiago, you were ‘amazing’.

    Nice tour and knowledgeable guide, Diego. Besides being fun and talkative, which is important for a guide to make the group cohesive, he was solicitous and always careful about the group's needs and I feel I've learned a great many things from him. Elizabeth

    Một chuyến du ngoạn tuyệt đẹp được hướng dẫn một cách xuất sắc bởi Diogo, người đã nói với chúng tôi rất nhiều điều tò mò về địa điểm và các loài thực vật mà chúng tôi tìm thấy trên đường đi. Luôn chú ý và quan tâm đến các yêu cầu của chúng tôi, anh ấy đã là một hướng dẫn viên tuyệt vời. Tôi muốn nhận xét rằng chúng tôi đã luôn có những trải nghiệm tốt với công ty này.

    Una actividad muy gratificante, con baño incluido en la cascada y bien organizada por parte de nuestro guía Diogo.
