Thanks to this guide we had a fantastic time in Sao Jorge!!
Jul 2021 • Friends
We - a group of 6 - had a fantastic time in Sao Jorge thanks to the guide Jaime.

The guide is born and raised in Sao Jorge and knows a lot about the island.

He talked to us about the earthquakes and volcano eruptions, the cows, the cheese, the formation of the lagoons, the climate, the vegetation, the clams, fishing,..

Jaime showed us all the hidden secrets of the island.
He recommended a walking trail to us that we did the next day. A trail with hidden caves and waterfalls. Really one of the most beautiful walking trails we did in the Azores.

At the end of the day we invited the guide to join us for dinner. We went to one of the best local restaurant.

The guide was very responsive, an excellent communicator.

In short, it was a great experience!

A very passionate guide, our group loved him.
He shared his knowledge about the island, showed us the most beautiful places.
Also the walk the second day was astonishing. It was like Jurrasic Parc.

Memorable Sao Jorge Tour!
Dec 2019 • Solo
Jaime is an amazing tour guide! He is extremely knowledgeable about everything Sao Jorge and knows all the popular spots as well as local gems. He has a wealth of information and contacts in the Azores. From the best coffee spots, shortcuts and adventure sports (land and water) - Jaime is your guide! Furthermore, He is very punctual and helpful. I was traveling during the holidays where most tourist sites are closed. My next stop was Pico and he reached out to a local contact who helped me with my next tour. He is very genuine. I highly recommend this tour. Thank you Jaime! Until next time!! P.S. He takes great pictures too!!

Outstanding tour
Jun 2019 • Family
This was a very thorough, beautiful, and interesting tour with many stops and opportunities to walk, take photos, and even swim! Jaime the guide, who is also an adventure guide, was extremely knowledgeable regarding island geological, ecological, and cultural history. His family has been on Sao Jorge for many generations. Jaime is also a great source of information regarding other activities on Sao Jorge and in the Azores in general. I recommend doing this tour at the beginning of your visit as it will inform the rest of your stay in the Azores.
