A super great day booked through “get your guide” Juan (Hans) our guide was absolutely great. Not only is he a linguistic genius, he told us a lot about his country and its culture and showed us unusually beautiful places that we would never have seen alone. Always having fun with all of this. Our recommendation books Hans and you will experience an unforgettable day.

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.
