What people are saying about Lagoa das Sete Cidades

An incredible day seeing so many different views of the Island. Our guide was so helpful and accommodating, even down to taking us to a different thermal baths as the one we were supposed so visit was full! We ended up getting back at 6.30pm! He was so knowledgeable about The Azores and you could see he genuinely loved giving tours.

Tour was great, guide was great! Good small tour size. He was flexible with timing and really helped us to maximize our time to be able to see what we were most interested in. Even though we saw many different sites on the island, it did not feel rushed and we even had time to relax in the thermal pool for some time.

We joined a wonderful tour with Miguel ! He is great guide and showed us lot of interesting places and also explained to us the background and history! We will follow with him when we come again ‘ thank you

Well organized tour and good value for money. Luis was an excellent guide and the lunch buffet included was also very rich and decent.

Very good. A very attentive guide and we have visited many places.
