We did this trip in the morning. It was a windy and sometimes rainy day but we saw all the places listed. Our guide was Rodrigo and he was very informative and cheerful. His knowledge was excellent and he had a love of his island. We were pleased that we had access to some areas that were not available to people on big buses. The small van was very comfortable.We enjoyed seeing the lake with two colours although with the weather it wasn't easy to distinguish. The views from the coast were spectacular.
AMAZING TOUR! Leon was incredible! This experience was one of the greatest I've had in any island or any country. This island is clearly gorgeous but Leon's extensive knowledge of São Miguel highlights the already incredible beauty of it. He takes you to the best viewpoints and tells you so much about the history and culture. He takes his time, doesn't rush and will recommend many other things for you to do and see on the island. Would recommend 100%! This is the only tour you need to book. Worth way more than the price. Fantastic experience!
This was an amazing half-day trip. The driver was very friendly and provided us with a lot of interesting commentary on the history of Ponta Delgada and the difference sights. We saw several sights in the half-day we spent on this tour. I would highly recommend this tour to others who want to get a feel for the beautiful lakes and foliage that surround this island.
We were fortunate in that the other couple who had booked this tour did not show up, so we had what amounted to a private tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide. Additionally, being in a small vehicle allowed us to get to places that the big tour buses off the ship could not get to.
Our tour guide Leoncio was amazing!! He was very friendly and knowledgeable, and showed us places we would've gotten lost had we tried to navigate ourselves! We rented at car, but we only used it twice! Much better to experience this lush green and stunning island with a local guide.
Great Tour. This tour was a duplicate of a cruise tour that was sold out before we could book. But this tour was better. We had a private driver, who was very familiar with the island, gave us a tour of some things that we would not have seen on the ship tour. We kept one step ahead of the cruise bus, which meant we saw things first and without the crowds. The Azores are amazing, we will definitely return again and use this tour operator again on another part of the island. Cannot say enough on the beauty and the tour we had.
