very different experiences from the west tour. From tasting the natural Spring water, to differing views. The tour guide, new that we had booked the west tour as well, and switched our tours due to weather to make sure we got the best experience. Seeing our lunch being pulled out from the ground, and soaking our feet in the thermals.

Tour hit many sights that were not covered during the rest of my stay on Sao Miguel. Joao was a great guide, full of knowledge and eager to show off the best the island has to offer. Lunch was delicious with wine, dessert, and coffee included.

I had the most amazing day with my tour guide John. I was lucky to be the only one booked onto the tour that day, and he made sure that he tailored the tour to suit my preferences and what I wanted to do that day. He was also a photographer and took some amazing pictures for me! I felt like I was being shown around by an old friend. He was very knowledgeable and keen to share his beautiful island. We went to some amazingly beautiful places, including Furnas lake and I had the optional extra of visiting the thermal springs in Furnas for only €6. We visited several beautiful viewpoints, lady of peace church, and the surprise extra - a tea plantation! We also went to Lagoa do Fogo on the way back to Ponta Delgada which I wasn’t expecting to have the pleasure of visiting but it was beautiful. He even played me some local music in the car to complete the experience. We had cozido for lunch - the local stew cooked in the thermal springs! I’m a vegetarian and John made sure the restaurant catered for this too.

Amazing. Must do! It simply covers all the best highlights on the East and do the West Full Day Tour as well. If you do both, it will give you an excellent feel for the entire island. Our guide,, Phillipe was incredible in every way, so knowledgeable, such interesting info and tailored to everyone's interest. The Furnas and calderios were wonderful with so many truly interesting stories from Phillipe, great guide. The panoramic views and wisdom on the best way to go was invaluable. We all enjoyed the best slow cooked meal with the complete compliment of drinks, deserts and cafe. I so highly recommend it. The history facts and interesting cultural details were fascinating. Just loved the special customer service attention to detail and the group's interest. To end with a delightful waterfall was the icing on the perfect tour cake. Loved it. Best tour ever!

Absolutely beautiful day exploring the east of Sao Miguel and its natural wonders, including calderas, waterfalls and lagoons. Miguel was a very competent, knowledgable and friendly guide. The cozido was a revelation and the Island is just out of this world beautiful.

Absolutely recommended! If you are lucky to have good weather, it is the best way to explore the beauty of Azores. The tour also has a traditional lunch included in the price which is a plus! Our tour guide João was very knowledgeable, sociable and energetic thought the whole day. We even returned to one of the sights we couldn't see due to bad weather on the West tour. One of the best tour experiences I've done!
