If you can have a wonderful tour, even in the pouring rain, it says something about your guide and the company. Our guide was Marco! I can't say enough good about him. He was upbeat, funny, great personality, polite, and interesting. Gary, the owner, was in the other van, and everyone loved him also. I didn't get to know him... More

We found the Azorean Tours through Tripadvisor and got in touch with Gary. Over the following months, Gary helped us plan a schedule that... More

The weather was rainy and foggy but Azorean Tours kept us busy and we enjoyed the day in spite of the weather. We visited hot springs, a... More

Our guide was Carlos, and he truly helped us make the most of our cruise ship stop at Ponta Delgada. The day started out with questionable weather, but Carlos keep an eye to the sky and we wound up seeing absolutely beautiful vistas everywhere we went. The lakes were gorgeous, the national park was beautiful, the liquor factory was interesting,... More

I had a great time. Gary was my tour guide. I traveled solo so he made the trip exciting. My visit was in Oct 2015, not 2016. I would take a personal tour before a group bus trip. More intimate. I could ask a lot of questions. He picked me up from my hotel and dropped me off. He was... More

Azorean tours was wonderful. Our tour guide Marco was great. Not only was he knowledgeable and pleasant but very accommodating. Members of our tour group would mention an area of interest and Marco would find it. Great experience. Would tour Sao Miguel with them again.

We spent plenty of time on each location and he took us to the best spots at the perfect time. We ate what locals ate. Gary picked and dropped us to our hotels and was... More
