A super great day booked through “get your guide” Juan (Hans) our guide was absolutely great. Not only is he a linguistic genius, he told us a lot about his country and its culture and showed us unusually beautiful places that we would never have seen alone. Always having fun with all of this. Our recommendation books Hans and you will experience an unforgettable day.

Phillip (Felipe) was very knowledgeable with respect to driving us to remote areas, providing insight re: various flora (trees, shrubs, etc.) imported to Sao Miguel, and info about various towns and locations we visited, e.g. Misteiros, Sete Cidades, and crests of mountains. We had a GREAT TIME!!

We would highly recommend the private jeep tour on Sao Miguel. You get personalized tours of exactly what interests YOU. It will change as the weather and your needs change.

More than we expected, very friendly and knowlegable guide (Hugo)

A very good way to visit Ponta Delgada when your time is limited. We had a very good time with Hugo, he brought us where tourists don't go usually.

Great opportunity to see so much

It was quite breathtaking. The tour operator was so knowledgeable and made the tour fun.
