The tour was amazing!!! Nouno is an excellent guide, he took us around for a longer time than expected, he explained everything and was very pleasant and friendly! He drove us to many lakes, many “secret” places, across the coastline, we saw volcanic water and we also visited the tea factory! The lunch he offered was also very nice! I would highly recommend!!!! I believe the tour couldn’t have been better!

This is the best tour I have ever had. Hugo is an amazing guide. He is warm, friendly and very knowledgeable. We are a group of 4 adults and 1 kid. He picked us up from our accommodation. He explained every thing clearly. We learned a lot more about São Miguel, the Azores and Portugal. Hugo showed us the best view of beautiful scenes in Sao Miguel. The lunch was absolutely amazing with traditional Portugese food. We would not have been able to see and know that much about the nature, the people and the cuisine without Hugo and the tour. I highly recommend this tour if you visit Sao Miguel, especially for the first time. The tour is excellent and worth every penny.
