Our tour guide was Telmo, who you will see in many of the reviews here, and they are not over exaggerating how lovely he is. His English is excellent, & he is enthusiastic & knowledgeable about his island & has lots of fun stories. We booked an 8 hour private tour the first day & it was such a great tour that after touring ourselves around the next day, we decided it was better to let him drive! So we booked a SECOND tour for later in the week (just like many other reviewers did). Reasons you should book: 1: The private tour is completely customizeable so you don't need to worry about not having enough time at any one place, because it's at your pace. 2: Driving and parking in the Azores is a little different and we were so glad to have someone to show us how it's done. 3: In the little towns you wouldn't know about some things unless a local was telling you about them. 4: if you like hiking, he'll drop you at the trailhead and he knows exactly how long it will take you to complete it, which is a nice safety factor - plus some are thru-hikes and not loops. Finally, the reason we personally enjoyed Telmo is that he is infinitely patient (probably because he has young kids), and he was very kind about answering my 101 questions about things like the local tax rate, animals, flowers, & healthcare. I was hesitant to book this company because the other company's cars looked cooler but I am really glad we went with T4W - the Toyotas are really comfortable for all day touring.

Exactly on time (9 AM) our guide Telmo was at the meeting point and welcomed us to the island. As our ship had to leave at 4PM we had to shorten the 8 hour trip so we discussed the options with Telmo. We concluded to let hem decide what the best places to go for and that was probably one of our best deciosns that day.

Telmo took us first along the coast, visited several very nice places and had a coffee with special cake in I believe Vila Franca, which we enjoyed very much. We continued towards Furnas which was very interesting as well and continued towards the North coast. Via Pico da Pedra we continued our journey and had some amazing stops. Telmo really took us to his 'own' secret places with some stunning views. Also we experienced an offroad path passing a water stream. Finally he took us perfect on time to the port entry in Ponta Delgada.

An excellent guide and an amazing trip; real value for money!

We have just spent 2 wonderful days with T4W and we can’t recommend them enough!

We were originally going to hire a car ourselves and we are so pleased that we found Delfim and Alice instead.

Delfim’s in-depth knowledge of the island and the careful planning that he does to ensure that you get the absolute most out of your day with him is incredible. He made sure that we got to see and do everything that we wanted to, in the best sequence, to ensure that we can make the most of the ever changing weather in Sao Miguel. He then made recommendations for surprise experiences that we had not considered and we absolutely loved!

He is a fountain of knowledge and is great fun! He really listens and gets to know the kind of things that you want to see and do and then tailor made the day around us, whilst introducing us to fantastic local cuisines.

He is super well connected and seems to know everyone on the island and makes the most of his connections to ensure that you get the best possible service everywhere you go!

If you want to properly experience the wonderful island of Sao Miguel, then T4W tours is the best company to use.

A 5 star service with a really great team!

Thank you so much for a couple of fantastic days!

Delfim the guide is great. He is very friendly, funny, on-time, knows the area, plans a fun trip and makes sure everyone is ok and happy. We loved the time getting off the main roads and exploring the hard to get to places of the island. Beautiful views and exhilarating experiences. Thanks again to Alice and Delfim.

Delfim was our tour guide for the half-day tour we’d booked, and we immediately bonded as he opened his comfortable van for the 4 of us. He was flexible enough to respond to our impulse to make this a full-day tour, and we embarked on a day full of information and fun. He is fascinated by the geology of Sao Miguel, and taught us how to read the rocks as we visited the rocky coastline on the way to Furnas. He gave us a perfect mixture of guidance and space as we explored Terre Nostre, the hot springs, and the tea plantation. He organized our wonderful lunch in Furnas (cooked in the fumaroles) and it was like family eating together. We recommend him highly, and wish we could still be there in Sao Miguel.

We were picked up right at the cruise terminal by Telmo. Let me first start by saying how amazing Telmo was. The nine island chain archipelago is home to some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. I like it better than Hawaii. As good as the views and experiences were Telmo's passion for his homeland and wonderful stories, history, and facts truly made the day an adventure we will never forget.

This could not have been better! We met Fermin and decided together where to go on our 80% chance of rain day. We wanted to go to places we would not drive ourselves, so up to the rim of Sete Cidades we went. It started foggy ( no rain) and magically cleared while we were on top. Along the way there he took us off road to many interesting view points. During the course of the day we covered all of the Western end. He was fun to be with and knowledgeable and took us to a great lunch place. I recommend the 8 hour tour without hesitation. Yours will be different because it is exactly what you want to do. I hope you enjoy yourselves as much as we did!

Our guide was very friendly and shared his interesting knowledge of the island with us. He made an excellent restaurant choice for lunch and arranged the whole day extremely well. The weather was at times rainy, but we had a great day anyways with so many wonderful stops and sights. Also, we were able to extend the tour at short notice, which was super good service. While booking, we got answers to our inquiries over the phone easily. Thanks Delfim & Alice!!

We only had one day to see as much of the island as possible so we contacted Alice and Delfim and he was amazing so much knowledge of the island and he took us places you would never get too or could never have found.
We had an amazing day can’t wait to go back call him up and see the rest of the island.
We would highly recommend these guys.

Jose is an experienced guide. Interesting and knowledgeable in the flora and fauna of the island as well as history, geology and story telling.
We travelled off road, on roads, saw the magnificent island and had a wonderful time.
We could fit 6 adults comfortably in his car.
