The overall experience was awesome. We got wet going up but weather changed once we got to the top! The views (scenery) are amazing, the trails going up and down are pretty cool. Our guide was full of knowledge and he shared a lot with us while being funny! The food (at 7 Cedades) was very good This all day is a must do!

Loved this!! Lius our guide was excellent! The views unbelievable from the rim of the craters. We drove up through cow pastures, around the rim, back down into the valley, delicious Azorian buffet lunch, and thenaround the lakes. So glad we did this! I would totally recommend this tour!! And tell Luis I say Hi!!
