Ein super toller Tag gebucht über „get your Guide“ Juan (Hans) unser Guide war absolut spitze. Nicht nur das er ein Sprachgenie ist, er hat uns unheimlich viel über sein Land und der Kultur erzählt und ungewöhnlich schöne Plätze gezeigt, die wir alleine nie gesehen hätten. Bei all dem auch immer für einen Spaß zu haben. Unsere Empfehlung bucht Hans und Ihr werdet einen unvergesslichen Tag erleben.

More than we expected, very friendly and knowlegable guide (Hugo)

A very good way to visit Ponta Delgada when your time is limited. We had a very good time with Hugo, he brought us where tourists don't go usually.
