This activity is just amazing! A big big thank you to Eduardo (Eddy) who really made us discover beautiful places! Although he does not speak French, the explanations he gave us were very clear, we learned a lot about Sao Miguel! If there was anything to improve I would say: NOTHING. The lunch was excellent, thank you for this choice of restaurant! I recommend this activity with your eyes closed! If you like walking, this activity is for you! And even if you don't like it too much, Eduardo adapts to you. A love this man! Really a big thank you!!!! I recommend you 1000 times

A magnificent day, breathtaking views, the most hidden places that without the guide we would never have known. Landscapes that look like an art painting when observed. A meal served in a small local restaurant! Excellent with fresh and especially homemade products. A guide who takes you through his daily life through his knowledge, his passion and the culture of the Azorianos. Ending with a little local melody! Thanks to our guide Eduardo for this wonderful trip through this beautiful Island. Carlos & Rosa
