    We had a great tour Trough Ponta Delgada. We asked quite a lot because it was a public holiday and most of the normal stops of te tour where closed. Last minute they improvised a tour and was great. we learned a lot and I would recement everyone to take the tour and get a extra view of the city that you will never seen on your own.
