My Son, Brad, and I booked this tour for the second day of our trip, figuring we would get some education and tips on the Island and suggestions/advice for the days ahead. Antonio was an Awesome guide, full of energy and a great sense of humor. He and his crew prepared a tasty lunch including the Alcatra Stew and some vegan things for those who prefer. Do this trip up front on your trip

The guide, Tanja, was fantastic. In addition, we got a wonderful tour with the crater visit as the highlight. Tanja also helped me when whale watching went completely wrong due to mistakes of employees or system. She called the organization and made sure I got in touch with them, while she was standing with people for another tour. Thanks again for Tanja!!! top.

This was the perfect way to get to know Terceira in little time. The tour covers all major points. We were a little group of 7 people in a mini bus. Our guide Tania was outstanding. She shared a wealth of knowledge about the island's history, nature and sightseeing spots. Thank you Tania and TuriAzores!

This is the second time that we have signed up for this tour and there are no regrets. The tour guide was able to tailor our day to fit our individual preferences. The Alcatra lunch is still the best on the island. We recommend this tour to our friends that are visiting the Azores.

Viktor was a wonderful host. We had a pleasant afternoon enjoying the wine, tapas and cordials. The youtube recordings of local festivals gave us even more perspective and local knowledge about our holiday destination. This is a must do for your visit to Terceira.
