    Great day… for four people with a very nice young guide… crazy landscapes… green walks… swimming in sea water at 38 degrees…. Sunny day… (which is rather rare in the Azores even in August !!! !)… Everything is perfect except the picnic… a shame… inedible… while the food is not expensive in the Azores…. Unripe fruit with a tiny sandwich… dry… and a small brick of filthy juice… in short .. not a bottle of water .... in the description of the day we talked about a snack ... nothing other than these three tiny filthy things all day long .... too bad it ruins the price ...

    Locations bellissime. Le 2 ragazze che sono state le guide per questo tour, sono molto gentili e sorridenti. Abbiamo vissuto una bellissima esperienza insieme e ci siamo divertiti. Consiglio questo tour e questa agenzia.
