Excellent tour to Fogo lake with the most amazing guide! We saw so many nice viewpoints and spots, learnt a lot about Azores, history, food and got some super nice local experiences that we wouldn’t have tried without the guide. In addition, we finished our tour in amazing restaurant near the ocean where we ate the best tuna in Azores! Highly recommend it to everyone! It’s a totally different experience and will make you look at the Azores with different eyes! EXCELLENT!

Very complete and enjoyable tour. Another way to see the island. Our guide, Leoncio, a very friendly and pleasant person, who in addition to showing us what was included in the visit, answered all our questions with a smile and completed all the information we need (about restaurants, ...). Regarding Covid, very safe, in the car you go at all times with the masks and you have hydroalcoholic gel inside. Totally recommended !!!

We loved the experience, Hugo took us around the island and explained everything very well. Thanks to him we have gotten to know Saõ Miguel super well. He also took us to visit the tea plantations and Ananas' plantations when he saw interest on our part. The food very good and the experience very good. He speaks Spanish very well.
