The beauty of Azores
Along with the East tour it's a must see experience! Beautiful nature, delicious lunch made with only local ingredients and an amazing tour guide (João). We had the best time despite the changing weather conditions. One of the best tour experiences I've ever done! Not to be missed when visiting Azores.

Breathtaking experience
Sep 2021 • Solo
I had two excellent experiences touring São Miguel island with Pure Azores Tours. Just as in my first day touring the East side of the island, I was placed with an awesome and friendly guide who delivered an amazing, safe, and informative experience of the West side of the island. From the beginning, Filipe was heartwarming, knowledgeable, and friendly. He was enthusiastic about every stop we made and provided fascinating insights on even the smallest details. His number one priority was for us to have an unforgettable and enjoyable experience. With his guidance, we saw and learned about many gorgeous sites including Sete Cidades, Lake Fogo (Fire lake), and Caldeira Velha which was reminiscent of Jurassic Park, as he promised. Every visit was well-orchestrated, with the guide often dropping us at the entrance and then picking us up or parking at the end of our walking destination for ultimate convenience. We were treated to breathtaking views, engaging stories, and a delicious snd hearty lunch. As we drove home at the end of the day, Filipe held an informal Q&A to allow us to ask any questions we wished about the island and his life growing up there. It was an awe-inspiring tour and the next day I rented a car and, together with two other women I befriended on the tour, utilized the info we had gained to continue building unforgettable memories of São Miguel. Five stars!

Beautiful views with a fabulous guide
Our guide, Fernando, gets 5 stars +. His love and enthusiasm for his homeland is contagious. He did a great job adapting the tour to the interests of the people in our group. It turned out that we all like to walk, so he took us to some places where we could hike a bit to see even more spectacular views. I learned a lot about the Azores and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Perfect tour for my last minute notice
Sep 2021
I had only one full day in the Azores when I was able to do a tour. The company was extremely accommodating - they have picked me up on the same day of booking the tour (!) from Sao Roque (outside of Ponta Delgada) without any charge. The tour guide (Filipe) was always smiling and genuinely making sure we all had a good time. He had the perfect mixture of professionalism and laid back that I have experienced. Food was great, tour was informative and I have managed to meet people that I will be keeping in touch and exploring the island with. Totally worth every penny!
