This was a great tour! Daniella and John are experts on Sao Miguel and the Azores - we learned so much and had a great time. The day was thoughtfully planned and our guides even checked on the weather throughout the day to ensure we were visiting landmarks at the most opportune times. The van was clean and comfortable for a full day trip. Highly recommend to Sao Miguel visitors!

Our tour guide was super fun and the tour itself was flexible enough to appeal to what we were interested in (more/less time in places & we stopped for pastries). Even though the weather was not sunny, the island was still beautiful and we got to see almost everything. This is a great fast tour if you don't have too much time!

I thoroughly enjoyed my Sao Miguel tour with Joao. We saw a lot of the island yet never felt rushed. Joao was very knowledgeable and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this tour, especially if you have a short stay on the islands.

One of the Best Tour driver that being on, Rui Tome is a super star. He was always helpful, easy to talk to and explain very well

Mario was fantastic! We really enjoyed the day. :)
