About
My name is Rui and I am a Sao Miguel Island native. I love meeting people from other countries and making their visit to the Azores one they will never forget. My customers are not just clients to me – they are new friends, and as such they receive personalised service. I have many years of experience as a professional private driver, and you will find me an enthusiastic host with an excellent sense of humour. I can provide VIP services, Private Tours by Car and/or Minivan, and Airport Transfers.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Rui, we are so grateful for everything you have done for our family during our three days together. Your punctuality and flexibility in adjusting to the unpredictable weather of Sao Miguel were truly impressive. Despite the rain and clouds, you were able to adapt on the spot and ensure that our group of 7 had a fantastic day. Every place Rui takes you is a unique and unforgettable experience, making it the highlight of your trip. We will definitely return for more tours with Rui to explore all that Sao Miguel has to offer!

This has to have been the best vacation I have been on and Rui was a big part of making it happen. Rui adjusted every tour according to the weather and made sure we got to see all the main island attractions. He truly made our trip a special experience.

Would highly recommend Rui as a tour guide if you are coming to São Miguel. He drives with care and is incredibly knowledgeable about this beautiful island. He was flexible with our group and made the most of our days to make sure we saw everything we wanted, even with rainy and cloudy periods. Thank you Rui for an amazing experience that my family and I will never forget!

Rui, I cannot thank you enough for all that you’ve done for our family in the three days that we’ve spent with you. Rui is extremely punctual and accommodating to whatever the ever changing weather of Sao Miguel throws at you. Despite the rainy and cloudy weather we experienced, Rui was able to make changes on the fly and allow our family of 7 to get the most out of our day! Everywhere Rui takes you will be an exceptional experience and will be the highlight of your trip. We will definitely be coming back and booking more tours with Rui to see what else Sao Miguel has to offer!

We had the pleasure of being able to tour the island of Sao Miguel with Rui. He was kind, knowledgeable and an all around pleasure to be able to spend our days with exploring the island. He knew all the top spots for us to visit during the day and even provided great recommendations for our evenings. It was our first time on the island and I know when we come back, we will definitely be utilizing Rui’s services again. Thank you Rui for making our trip so special!

Just finished our amazing tour of this absolutely beautiful island with our amazing and most knowledgeable tour guide Rui, it was the private tour and we were picked up from our hotel in a very classy Mercedes car,Rui made our day so special, by the end of the tour we felt like family, he took us to the most beautiful and amazing spots, this was our first time in Azores and the internet photos and videos do not do it justice, its a place where you have to see with your own eyes , we fell in love with this island and would love to retire here. But overall this is a must do tour with a real knowledgeable gentleman, Thank you so much Rui for making our holiday so special.
