What people are saying about Sete Cidades

Nice tour, and guide Daniela. A very eventful tour, which is accompanied by a delicious lunch in the family restaurant. Unfortunately, the weather was not so lucky and the fog caught us at key viewing platforms. But the guide was very flexible and compensated us with a stop on the beach (unscheduled)

Excellent tour guide, very attentive friend and with excellent knowledge of the history of the Azores, I couldn't be more satisfied with the quality and experience of the voucher I purchased. 10 star tourist guide of the best I have ever encountered. Thanks.

Great day with guided by someone local, who knows and shares what you'd like to know about Azores. All the great spots of the central-west side are covered in a single day, a must if you want to cover more ground.

The sites were spectacular! Our ride was comfortable and our tour guide, Paulo, was easy to travel with and very informative. We are so glad we took this tour while staying on Sao Miguel!

The best of the tour was the tour guide Rui. He showed us the best possible places, incredible place!
