        Private Van Tour with Great Tour Guide!
        Our tour was a private tour of Sete Cidades. First time back in 7 years. Our guide Rui was amazing, very knowledgeable about each stop and made the tour very fun and enjoyable. We got very lucky so all the view points were beautiful and we got to see everything we wanted without weather making it difficult. Lunch was amazing and we even enjoyed the ability to do some walking and stretch our legs in the middle of the day. Would not have changed one thing and would recommend them if you are looking for a great guide and to tour the island.

        Outstanding jeep tour of Sete Cidades
        An outstanding trip that I'd fully recommend. The guide was excellent, with loads of knowledge and information shared. Going by jeep to Sete Cidades was amazing as he took us off road, rewarding us with breathtaking views. There was also a short stop in the village and photo opportunities whenever we wanted. Thank you to the team and particularly the guide, Hugo!

        Want to return
        We did the Golden triangle tour, only 6 days, but only require a rest at home after. The support was superb. Cannot speak more highly of our guide, Scoobie. Educated, great sense of humour, fantastic knowledge of history and politics, and extremely clear English speaking local.

        Wonderful views
        Fantastic trip - guide was great, the right amount of chatting and informative, without feeling like I'd been to a lecture. The views are definitely worth the trip, though we were on a cloudy day so telling the two lakes apart was impossible.

        Amazing
        The E-Bike tour was my personal favorite among many great experiences during two weeks in Portugal. Being close to nature on the roads of beautiful Sao Miguel was magical. There are some steep hills, requiring a reasonable amount of stamina, but the electric assist allowed me to power through and finish. Our guide Hugo was fantastic. We loved him so much we hired him the following day for a road tour to the other side of the island and we couldn’t have had a better time.

        Amazing landscapes, friendly staff, hydrangea in abundance
        Had a good time exploring the Sete Cidades with our knowledgeable guide. We got to walk along a beautiful lakefront as well as a country road lined with hydrangea bushes for as far as the eye could see. There was a small hike so wear runners. The weather was in the mid-twenties in August and humid.

        Great experience with multiple private van tours
        We booked 4 private van outings with Azores Trails of Nature, as we were traveling with our young child and could not go on long hikes. It ended up being a lovely way to see Sao Miguel, without having to worry about driving or planning our excursions. Our guide Rui was lovely - informative, warm and accommodating. For example, on our last outing to Nordeste, it happened to be a cloudless day, so we decided to revisit Lagoa do Fogo, which had been very overcast the first time. Rui reworked our itinerary on the spot. He also very kindly drove back to our apartment after we in advertently left our son's goggles in the car -- we arrived home after a meal to see the goggles hanging from the doorknob. It was a very thoughtful and appreciated gesture. We had a wonderful time and are already thinking about when we can return!

        Good experience but we didn’t almost catch any fish
        The guide and his companion were very fun and kind. We enjoyed the experience with them. Unfortunately we didn’t catch much and had to go fish for “Peixe Porco” near the shore (an easy catch) to avoid coming empty-handed. Otherwise very good experience and certainly recommended.

        Must see
        We were a bit disappointed because we had booked a jeep but there were none available and had to switch to a van. However, our guide was just really really nice and funny, told us a lot about the island, was very flexible on timings, …. And it’s an absolutely beautiful tour!!! We recommend 👍🏻

        Great e-bike experience.
        Philip is fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable about the island and history. We took e-bikes up the mountain to the ridge at Sete Cidades. The e-bikes made the climb effortless. The views from around the ridge were spectacular. Highly recommended!

        Horrible experience in a beautiful place
        Our experience was horrible and such a shame for the incredible beauty of the place. We were under the impression that this would be just an easy walking tour around the crater but to our surprise our guide took us through an route that required a 3km uphill hike that we were not prepared for nor did he brief us properly about the different route options. The private tour included a picnic at the end which the guide forgot to bring and we ended up towards the end of the hike with some sandwiches and water that i think he got last minute from one of the food trucks. When we requested to get dropped off back to our hotel instead of eating the sandwiches, the guide gave us such a bad attitude and was driving recklessly on our back. I think the guide was named Rui, highly not recommended to do the tour with him!

      Great bilingual guide - Mariano
      Apr 2024 • Solo
      Went for a half day tour with Mariano. He was very informative and passionate about his job. I learned so much about Azores. I am the only English speaker on the group and I appreciate that he interprets everything even the small conversations of the group that I did not feel left out. Definitely recommended.

      Seeing the island from a different prospective
      Sept 2019
      This is an outstanding way to see the beautiful island of Sao Miguel. First off, our guide, Louisa, is very proud of her island and knows it like only a native could. She took us to the pottery factory, which was interesting to see all the handwork that goes in to creating each piece. Then we started the "off the beaten path" portion of the tour, going on narrow farm roads, fording a river, seeing the island that tour bus riders would never see. A stop at one of the thermal spas is a must so we did. Even as a handicapped tourist I was able to indulge in this relaxing activity. This tour covers the westen side of Sao Miguel and is well worth seeing! Highly recommend this company!

      Half day tours
      My sister and I went on the half day tour with Filipe - he was wonderful!! We typically like to explore on our own, but Filipe made us so glad we opted for a tour. We saw sites we wouldn’t have been able to see on our own and his hospitality was above and beyond all expectations! His knowledge of the island as it exists now as well as the history was enlightening. We shared with him that our ancestors were born here in the early 1900’s and he made us feel like family. His English was perfect ( regretfully, our Portuguese is sparse). We look forward to coming back ( this was our first trip here) and will be sure to request Filipe.

      We had a fantastic day with Ruiz, he is so friendly and knowledgeable about the islands, history, flora and fauna. He was patient and took us to some amazing views and experiences from our cruise ship, it was easy to find him at the terminal and he dropped us back there in good time for sailing. Thank you very much for a great day!

      Perfect way to spend the day in Sao Miguel!
      Wonderful guide, great company, thorough tour of what I imagine are the most breathtaking spots on the island! Thankfully, the weather was absolutely beautiful. I don't have time to write much, I will try to update and upload pics soon, but I did not want to overlook writing a review. Our day was perfect 🙏... An experience our family will not forget.
