      Exploring the island like a local!
      It was such a pleasure to spend time with Tony. He was friendly, informative, and accommodating. Setting up the excursion was easy and straightforward. Tony is a “Local” and this is evident in his knowledge of the island. We didn’t know exactly what we wanted to see in our short time there. We were on a very limited schedule and Tony was very respectful of our time. He was waiting for us when we arrived and he got us back at our agreed time. Tony customized the day for us after making several suggestions. He allowed us to set the pace as we opted to spend more time at some stops and less time at others. He shared interesting anecdotes throughout our tour including personal experiences as well as historical tidbits. He made sure that we had freedom and personal space on our stops throughout the tour but was also quick to oblige when we asked him to join us at other stops. Tony really went above and beyond with our final request to visit a local grocery store! He helped us select some local foods, acted as a translator for us when needed, and even helped us to carry everything!

      Proposed with an incredible view on this Tour! Excellent company and tour!
      This was the best tour we have been on. I proposed to my girlfriend at Pico da Cruz over looking the Sete Cidades. Azores Outdoor Activities helped plan the proposal with an incredible review and kept the whole thing a secret as requested. They played along excellently and even coordinated with my secret photographer as well. They had the photographer ride behind us during the whole tour in a buggy to allow her to take photographs without my now fiance even knowing. It was an incredible experience for both of us. Azores Outdoor Activities helped with recommendations on a back up plan if the weather was rainy or if the overcast was too much to allow for a good view of the Sete Cidades. Fortunately it was a clear day with a spectacular view. The entire tour had great views and was a fun day for all on the tour. There is even a break point at the lakes down below to stop and use a restroom and enjoy a snack/beverage an the lake. I can not say enough about how great this tour was and even more so how excellent Azores Outdoor Activites is as a company. It was an excellent day that will provide a lifetime of a memory.

      Rain and clouds didn’t hinder how much fun this tour was!
      The tour guides/instructors were wonderful and friendly (and cute!), and were accommodating for nervous new quad bikers. I went with three friends and the four of us shared two quads. Luckily, two of us had a little experience with quads and learning was a breeze. The instructors gave us a simple rundown of how to operate the machines and we went on our way. The ride was paced perfectly; I felt comfortable but also far from bored. It had rained recently before our tour, but that hardly made a difference. The instructors warned of a few technical spots, but they were referring to some washed out gravel which was easy to navigate if you’re aware of where your wheels are. It was 15*C and cloudy with little patches of light rain here and there, but the tour was perfect even still. After we got to the top of Setes Cidades, we went down into town and stopped at a café for a coffee and some ice cream. I would 100% go again. It was worth every penny and it was the most expensive experience of our two week trip, besides car rental. The views of Setes Cidades was incredible even on a cloudy, rainy day. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a little bit of a rugged experience with some epic views.

      We got hit with crummy weather but our guide didn’t let that ruin our day. We explored where we could, learned a lot, and even got some sun for for the last hour or so. Rain or shine, do this tour!

      Good experience
      Very nice way to tour around Sete Cidades. Nice people and well organized. The road was not difficult, so good for beginners also. Price is reasonable, but not the cheapest.

      Don’t miss!
      I’ve been quad biking all over the world, and this was by far one of the best tours I’ve taken. Excellent guide, breathtaking scenery, and a great amount of time on the bike (approx 4 hours). Fantastic way to see the northwest part of the island. If you have road goggles it would be good to bring them, as the dirt roads can be a bit dusty. You may want to bring some gloves if your hands get cold easily. 5 stars!

      We had a great time on our tour with Sergio! We had our own rental car but it was great to see parts of the island we wouldn’t normally explore with a local! Beautiful sights and a great tour guide!

      Off-Roading in the Magnificent Azores! Absolute Must Do!
      We had a fabulous half day! Touring Azores, Ponta Delgada, with Sergio from Azores Outdoor Activities through Viator!! The owner and tour guide were above and beyond friendly and accommodating! We booked our Quad Bike tour to Sete Citades, way in advance of our cruise that would port there. We were way excited to 4-wheel in the beautiful landscape of the Azores villages. However, because of 2 medical emergencies during our 7 day cross of the Atlantic, we were several hours delayed in making it to port. The day before our scheduled reservation, we were notified that our ship was not going to port in time for our reservation!! We called Outdoor Adventures directly. The owner answered and kindly told us they would not be able to reschedule the Quad bikes because they were already booked out for the rest of the day. He offered to find another off-road adventure for us, if I could give him an hour. He was able to contact another tour guide and had a Ford Rapture Truck for us!! It was even better than the Quad Bikes would’ve been because it was raining and cold!! In the truck we were very comfortable and dry!! Sergio was extremely knowledgeable about of the islands and villages. He was absolutely great fun! Thank you Sérgio and Azores Outdoor Adventures!!

      A MUST DO
      THIS WAS AMAZING. Felipe was a great guide and took the time to show us the area while having fun on the quads. The trail is so fun! Our weather didn’t cooperate with us so at the top of the mountain it was all fog. But he took an extra stop towards the bottom to give us that incredible view and we were so appreciative. Definitely recommend to anyone who loves quads and adventure.

      Do it!
      This was so much fun! It’s about 3 hours and you cover a lot of distance. You stop several times to look at vistas and once in town to stretch your legs where there’s a cafe and bathroom as well. Helmet, jacket and gloves available for you. I’d definitely recommend!

      What an adventure!
      We took the full day tour with our teenage son. It was definitely the best day of our vacation in the Azores. The machines were new and meticulously maintained so there was no worry about safety. We saw some stunning scenery, took amazing photos, and had a delicious lunch. Our tour guide, Filipe, was friendly, professional, and accommodating. He had great information about the island and took great care to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. I recommend this tour operator without reservation. Tip: if they offer to lend you a jacket, take it. It was so cold in the higher elevations!

      Highlight of the Azores
      What a fantastic way to explore the island! We spent the morning on a quad bike tour, visiting the old Aqua ducts, and on up to the highest peak to take photos of the Sete Cidades. We then cane down to the lake to have coffee & a snack before taking a different route across the mountains back to our start point. I highly recommend this tour to everyone. It was definitely our favourite part of the Azores. The guide was extremely friendly & knowledgeable, and gave us great insights on the Island.

    In a small group we drove with quads and buggies from the starting point in the north to the Sete Cidades area. We drove over roads, hill and dale to various viewpoints. The view during the tour was overwhelming, especially at the crater rim. At each stop, things were explained and questions answered. We also stopped at a bar, which was very cheap.

    We took part in the tour as a family. Our family had a vehicle for four persons.
    The Tour alternated between driving on the road and off-road.
    The route is also suitable for beginners.
    There were a variety of viewpoints that you wouldn't be able to reach on foot in one day. The guide provided interesting information about each stop in excellent English. He always made sure that everyone was getting on with the vehicles.
    The pace depends on the ability of each driver.
    We really enjoyed the tour.

    We did this as the last activity before we left this beautiful island, and it was sooo much fun! We thought we had explored everywhere in our hire car until our knowledgeable guide Filipe showed us some amazing views and hidden gems. My 9 year old son was overthe moon about this experience. We definitely recommend!

    Amazing trip, tons of fun. Great pictures and got lots of time on the machines and got to put them to good use. Machines were perfect for the conditions and trails. Amazing guide very nice and respectable. I would recommend our guide "Filip" to anybody looking for making one of our best days in the Azoras. Beautiful day for atv riding make sure you check the weather when you are booking.

    My wife and I drove the side by side buggy at the tail end of a line of quads. This off and on road adventure far exceeded my expectations. Philip is a class act and makes sure everyone enjoyed their experience.

    Filipe was an incredible tour guide and took care of us throughout the experience as we had a lot of rain. Despite this, we enjoyed every minute of this unprecedented way to see some of the most breathtaking views otherwise inaccessible without an exhaustive hike! It’s the most fun you can have outside with your clothes on! Can’t wait to do it again in the summer.

    If you can only do one single thing in the Azores this should be your pick! Truly one of the greatest experiences of my life. The views are unbelievable. You get to see so much of the island. It was safe and extremely fun. Well worth the money and time. Thanks for an incredible experience!

    My husband and I have lived in São Miguel for over two years already and have seen a good bit of the island already. But I’m kicking myself that we didn’t do this tour sooner because we saw things that we would have loved to show people who have visited us. And we would have sent some of our visitors on this very tour. I’ve been on a lot of tours throughout the islands and this was one of the best. The guides were knowledgeable and personable. And the route they took us on was fun (for driving) and stunning (for views). This is one to repeat! And we’ll be sending future visitors on this tour.
