All in one tour!
Juca was amazingly knowledgeable and has real insight into the earliest settlers of Terceira. He took me to some amazing archaeological locations including to to an incredible columbarium. His involvement in uncovering the history of the island shines through on the tour. He also stopped off at some of the beautiful viewpoints around the island and took some really great pics - he's an awesome photographer! You won't need to do another tour if you do this one - definitely recommend!

The Archaeology tour is an amazing tour. Terceira has an amazing ancient history that you will not see if you do not book this tour. Juca is clearly so passionate about this aspect of the island and has so much information to share with you. Be prepared for some excellent photos that Juca can take on his camera; they are professional quality. Even if you think you aren't interested in archaeology, you will be blown away by the incredible sights you see. You will be one of the lucky few to know about the ancient past of this island, as this knowledge is hard to come by...just look at the Wikipedia page for terceira and you will see.

Must do tour!
Feb 2020
A group of 6 of us recently took this tour with Juca. He took us to see places that are definitely off the beaten track! If you enjoy some moderate hiking in some very pretty areas even if archeology isn’t your bag, then this is still the tour for you. Booking this tour through their company was painless and fast. Marisa despite the time difference in Terceira was answering all my emails with questions immediately. Juca is a great photographer that can’t take a bad picture and using just our phones took some of the most memorable pictures of the entire trip. Thank you Juca for showing us your beautiful island!

The best vacation a family could have with Trilhas Tours
If you do not use Trilhas Outdoor Tours for you trip to Terceira, you are missing out on a vacation of a lifetime. We have been to Terceira four times now and only met Juca and Marisa on the third trip. We had so much fun on the island every visit, but it was a whole new, wonderful experience once we met this family. Juca is a master with his camera and Marisa makes you feel like you're home. They are funny and kind and full of great stories and knowledge of the island.
On a first trip/tour have Juca take you to the highlights for incredible photos and to beautiful spots off-the-beaten-path. You'll also get to experience the best restaurants for Azorean cuisine. Once you get a feel for the island, do the photography tour and archeology tour. Your photos will be phenomenal and you'll fall in love with this place. WARNING: THIS TRIP WILL RESULT IN YOU WANTING TO COME BACK TO TERCEIRA.
To give you an idea of how great our experience was, my five-year-old daughter cried her eyes out on the plane when she found out we wouldn't be back to see them for another year. Thank you Marisa, Juca, and Carlota. We will miss you.

Best tour !
Jan 2020 • Couples
We had just one week to explore the island of Terceira- wanted to see archeological things, views , hike ,caves .. as much as we could . With Marisa’s help we determined that 2 days of tours could cover a lot for us . We combined 2 tours each day .
The communication in getting set up before we got there was excellent .
Juca was our guide - and we couldn’t have been in better hands .
We didn’t sign up for the photography tour but were delighted that Juca shared some tips for taking photos with both our phones and our camera . We came away with some new tricks .
And Juca took some great photos of us for us !
His knowledge of the area combined with his sense of humor made the day extra enjoyable .
The archeological tour ... I doubt you can get that full experience without him . Very interesting indeed !
Hiking - we did a few mild hikes that combined walking and amazing views . We learned where there were other yikes we could do on our own . We ended up not having time to do them .. but we definitely would not have even known how to find the trails without being shown .
All in all I say it was an excellent experience for us and we are happy to have met Juca and look forward to seeing him again.
Not just a tour guide - now a friend :)
Thank you Juca and Marisa - TRILHAS is the BEST !

Dieser Trip zeigte selbst uns (gut vorbereiteten Touris) Dinge und Orte, die wir sonst nie gesehen hätten. Absolut großartig! Unser Guide Juca war supernett, erfahren, hatte ein unglaubliches Wissen und wir haben sehr interessante Anregungen gehört und viele Informationen erhalten. Absolut zu empfehlen!! Ein dickes 'Danke' an dieser Stelle an Juca! / This trip showed even us (we were well prepared tourists) things and locations which we would never have seen without this tour. Absolutely great. Our guide Juca was very nice, experienced, has a huge knowledge and we have heard very interesting informations and things to think about. Big recommendation!! Thank you very much, Juca!!

Hidden treasures shown
If you ever are interested in Acorean history beyond typical mainstream it is the only person to address.
He doesn't only let you hop on and off to mass touristic hotspots - Juca let you dive into a mystical world you never expected.
As he is also a professional photographer, he of course knows best places to take breathtaking pictures.
We came here as strangers and left as friends.
I can fully recommend Juca!
