What people are saying about Salto do Cavalo Lookout

We went to the Azores with Mein Schiff3, unfortunately there were no more excursions available through TUI Cruise. Thank God we had a fantastic tour with wonderful impressions through Get your Guide with our guide Hugo Melo, who presented his island with body and soul. We fell in love with the island of Sao Miguel and will visit it again for a holiday. The lunch was excellent with the locals with many delicious specialties and local drinks. The only tea plantation in Europe was well worth seeing and interesting and was explained to us in great detail and we tasted and bought green tea, with the tour guide helping us very nicely. I can only recommend Get your Guide and will book the next tour there again.

We loved the experience, Hugo took us around the island and explained everything very well. Thanks to him we have gotten to know Saõ Miguel super well. He also took us to visit the tea plantations and Ananas' plantations when he saw interest on our part. The food very good and the experience very good. He speaks Spanish very well.

The landscapea are amazing. Overall there were very few people on the various points which was definitely a plus. The tour was very well organized and the guide was helpful and answered all our questions

Very extensive tour with Hugo, a very helpful, well-informed and dedicated guide! A beautiful landscape in the east and northeast. Felt even greener and more hilly than the rest of the island.

Nuno gave us a nice day and showed us the beautiful island and places. A good coffee and delicious lunch was included, as well as time to explore the area on foot.
