What people are saying about Sete Cidades

Ideal for those who like some adrenaline and really feel the Azores. Although we were unlucky enough to catch some fog and a lot of rain, the experience of driving the buggy through the most secluded and adventurous paths around the seven cities made it all worthwhile, especially guided by Mr. Pedro, an Azorean, who gave them so well. do you know :)

A great tour and good ride!

A great tour, great guide and lovely ride. Although were given a quadbike instead of a buggy (UTV) we paid for! (That was at least the our expectation) yet the ride was great and the tour guide was very good :)

What a great way to see Sete Cidades! The views were spectacular. Would highly recommend it. Make sure you bring jacket and sunglasses as it gets cold and very dusty.
