Overview
Regular tours will only take you to a certain part of São Miguel island (either Furnas, Sete Cidades, Nordeste, etc.). This is different, you have a private car and guide for yourself. This way you will be able to get to must see sights in different parts of the island. If you didn´t have the time to read your guidebook, don´t want to rent a car, or have just one day to spend, but want see as much possible, you must let a local navigate the island for you. It is impossible to see all of it in the same day, and very tiring to drive yourself to different parts, through volcano mountains and curvy roads. Forget that, we know the island better than no other and we are able to make the most of your time: volcanos, thermal pools, waterfalls, lakes and breathtaking views all in the same day. Let us take you through this natural paradise we call home and spend your time on the places you prefer. You just have to sit back, relax and let yourself fall in love with the Azores!

I can't praise Carlos and his daughter, Monique enough. Truly a once in a lifetime experience with this beautiful family. My husband, adult daughter and I came as strangers/travelers and left feeling like family. Monique was delightful to deal with planning our time on Sao

I wish I could give 100 stars. I set this tour up for my mom who has mobility issues. She can walk but not long distances. Carlos was our tour guide, (Monique's dad). He went out of his way to park close and even help her out of the car and up stairs. He is incredibly
