He was on time, nice and really wanted his clients to get an experience of the island. Very accommodating what the client wanted to see and if they didn't have anything in mind he would recommend things to see. Always keeping us on our toes and informative. Would recommend to anyone!

Myself and my family recently spent 6 hours with Gary on a tour around Sao Miguel. He was friendly and very knowledgeable, and went to great effort to pack in as much as he could which would be of interest to my children (aged 8 & 9), my husband and myself. I would highly recommend Gary and his company for... More

We landed in San Miguel without any preparation of what to do. Luckily the taxi driver from the airport is a tour guide with Azorean Tours. So instantly we got a guide and a car, the price is very reasonable, not much more expensive than a big rental car. Marcus, being born and raised in the island, knows everything about... More

We went with Marco on 2 tours. The first one is the sunrise tour at Nordeste. Marco arrived early but he let us finished breakfast before starting the tour. The driving to Nordeste is challenging before sunrise. The road is narrow and dark so I highly recommended hiring a professional to do the job. The experience was pleasant and we... More

We toured with Gary T. of Azorean Tours for two of the 4 rainy days on Sao Miguel, Azores. We so appreciated the effort that Gary put into working the tours around the weather's limitations and in listening to our interests. Just 'roll with the punches' and Gary will come up with something! We ended up seeing and hiking places... More

We used Azores Tours for 3 full day tours while on San Miguel. They picked us up at our hotel at 9 am and returned us by 5 pm. The lunch choices were excellent in local eateries. The guide Ruben was very knowledgeable and kind to older people in the group.

Marco is a very knowledgeable tourguide and a great storyteller. We enjoyed a beautiful and rainy day with Marco, and had booked the tour of Furnas and Nordeste. Unfortunately, we didn't make it to Nordeste but stayed in the area. The tour would be great if you are with four or more travellers as it is rather expensive for a... More

This was a day filled with wonderful sights. Gary was an excellent guide sharing so much history as well as personal stories. Our group of eight were very comfortable on this day long tour. The caldera lakes were interesting to see. Watching a family herding their cows down the road was fun to see (actual working farmers). The trip to... More

Gary is an outstanding tour operator who arranged tours for 78 cruise ship people with 11 guides and vehicles and 3 different itineraries to select. This is the second time we have done a similar set of tours with Gary, and fourth time using his company. Most of the groups felt that they had the best ever tour and guide.... More
