We had the most amazing experience visiting Sete Cidades despite the rainy weather! Our guide did an extraordinary job adapting to the difficult weather conditions and gave us a complete tour of the island in addition to Sete Cidades, stopping at many view points along the way. He was extremely knowledgeable and had an answer to all of our questions! Thank you so much for a great afternoon!

Ideal for those who like some adrenaline and really feel the Azores. Although we were unlucky enough to catch some fog and a lot of rain, the experience of driving the buggy through the most secluded and adventurous paths around the seven cities made it all worthwhile, especially guided by Mr. Pedro, an Azorean, who gave them so well. do you know :)

What a great way to see Sete Cidades! The views were spectacular. Would highly recommend it. Make sure you bring jacket and sunglasses as it gets cold and very dusty.

It was a very good tour with Rodrigo the guide. Nice views explanation of each site. Plenty of time to take pics.

Nice tour for looking lakes in the mountains from the shore and from the top.
