About
You must try night-time bathing at least once in your lifetime. For many of years now, people have come from near and far to soak in the healing hot waters from Furnas. Your dinner will be special too, Portuguese stew cooked in the pots dipped into the floor and will cook for several hours with the vulcanic heat. Apart from all this, you can also admire Caldeiras das Furnas: multiple boiling water and mud springs as well as mini-geysers. They are strewn all over the town. You can also try the mineral waters or have a cup of local tea using the natural hot water. Don't worry about the weather, worse is better, imagine you in warm water to the neck and feeling the cold drops of rain in your head or you can have a beautiful night full of stars, come to see what you gonna get.

We booked this tour after we have been to Furnas with another tour already but the guide from this told us all new facts about the island and Furnas which was really great and impressive. We also made friends with the other people on the tour partly due to the tour guide asking all kinds of questions. The thermal baths were great and crowded at all. There was a line to get in but thanks to the tour guide knowing about this and taking us early we got in fairly quick. We also had a lovely dinner at the restaurant and got a cocktail with the water from the cities springs which was delicious.

So even if you've already been to Furnas with a tour, I'd recommend this tour!

We did this activity on our first night. It was a great way to get a sense of the island and recommendations from a native. We were a party of 4 joined by two from Finland. From start to finish Eleuterio provided insights, facts and tidbits about The Azores, Sao Miguel and each stop that we made. He added a lot of nice personal touches to the dinner which enriched the experience. The thermal springs were fine. Soaking in hot pools of water with strangers isn't one of my favorite things to do. Definitely wear a dark swimsuit as the iron in the water does stain things orange. During the last stop, Eleuterio also goes above and beyond with a nice offering for the night. Thanks for a great tour.

Eleuterio was excellent. He arrived 10 minutes early at our hotel and had no problem waiting for us. His English is excellent. My girlfriend and I had no problems understanding him. His van was clean and comfortable. On the way there he had us both sit up front with him so he could give us a history of the Island and its culture. His knowledge of the formation of the earth, continents, island and the thermo waters made me question if he was a geologist. He is not, but it is a passion of his and it showed. He took us to where the food is cooked in the earth. We saw the folks lower the pots into the holes. It was really cool. Afterwards, we went to an awesome local restaurant and had that earth cooked food. It was absolutely delicious. He brought wine and pineapple from his family's plantation for us to have. After dinner he took us to the thermo baths. He waited in the van for us and pretty much gave us as much time as we needed. It was a beautiful night and we really enjoyed ourselves. After the baths he took us to a road that had several fountains of natural mineral water. Each fountain had a noticeably different amount of mineral in the water. Eleuterio pulled out a couple of glasses and some local gin. We had gin with natural mineral water. It was a really nice way to end our tour. Eleuterio really put many personal touches into our tour. He didn't have any alcohol and was very professional. My girlfriend and I highly recommend this tour. Cheers!

This was the highlight of our trip to The Azores! Eleutério was an incredible guide. He is truly passionate about The Azores and its culture, which added to an already amazing experience. Learning about how the food can be cooked underground due to the heat from the active volcano followed by eating a traditional Portuguese stew that was cooked this way was very cool. Eleutério also took the time to allow us to taste the various mineral waters and educated us on its history and infrastructure. So fascinating. We felt that he truly enjoys what he does and this was apparent throughout the night. The entire evening was absolutely perfect. Thank you Eleutério! Until our next Azores trip!

This was an incredible experience! Eleuterio was accommodating, very knowledgeable about the island, and found our way to the stunning thermal pools. When my husband and I signed up, we thought we'd just enjoy some hot springs, but Eleuterio gave us a much richer experience. He explained the history of the island, the natural evolution of the geothermal springs, and was very personable throughout our trip. He appears to be an outdoor enthusiast, which is expected given his love for Sao Miguel, so he was able to enlighten us on the different geographical aspects of the island. We enjoyed delicious cozido, and what's more, we had a chance to see where it was being made! For first-time travelers wondering about transportation, Eleuterio picked us up at the airport right when we landed and took us to our Airbnb, which made our logistics so much simpler. Whether you're looking for outdoor adventure, a relaxing night, or something really unique, we highly recommend taking this trip and choosing Eleuterio as your guide.

Great host from start to finish. Very passionate about the islands and their future, great informative tour with great local food, wine, beer or soft drinks,
Thermal pools where busy but manageable, only 7 of us on the tour which added to the experience, 4 Americans 1 China man, very nice guy Ping, and ourselves from the Uk,
Would highly recommend for an evening experience.

What a marvelous evening! I can't recommend Eleuterio's tour enough. He showed us the cooking hot springs of Furnas and told us about the cozido process in great detail, before providing us with a great meal and conversation while we enjoyed a very filling dinner. The baths were perfect for warming up on a cool and slightly rainy evening, and we went for a little tour of the town later in the evening to explore the natural water fountains. My boyfriend and I both really enjoyed the whole experience. We especially appreciated the pick up and drop off to our accommodations, and the good company along the way.
