Absolutely brilliant tour! The amazing weather helped, but Eduardos was knowledgeable and was able to answer all bar one question the whole van tour had. We stopped off for a buffet lunch in a local restaurant of local dishes. The cheese and bread for starter mmmmmm st George cheese and smoke baked bread! Nothing was rushed and we all had a great time. Thanks eduardos for a great day!!!

Pure Azores did an amazing job - this tour was excellent. We were in Ponta Delgada for a short day - a stop on our cruise from Lisbon across the Atlantic. They tailored this tour to our needs - providing a shortened tour which matched our time on the island. Despite this, we had a wonderful tour and an excellent lunch and managed to see the highlights of the west side of Sao Miguel.

We had the best day on our tour! Edu was a wonderful guide. He was incredibly knowledgeable about Sao Miguel and he showed us the most beautiful areas! We loved everything, the lunch was excellent and so was the wine! Do not hesitate to book this tour!

It was an amazing experience to see Sao Miguel highlights in this tour. Weather was perfect. Our guide was fantastic. Our small group tour was friendly. We had a great time admiring the beautiful of Azores
