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.

This tour was the best thing we could have done on our trip. Josef answered the phone himself when I called and we were so happy he was available to take us on a tour. There were six of us and we were so comfortable in his clean Mercedes Touring van. He was an expert driver (a must on these narrow, steep roads) and was so knowledgeable about everything we asked about on the island. I seriously cannot say enough good things about him. We never would have been able to see everything we saw today without him. If you only have a short amount of time to see all the amazing sights and vistas, hire him immediately. The experience he gave us today was priceless. He also will accommodate everything you ask for. He can do it all!! We wanted to have a local lunch and he found the most magical place for us where only the locals were. It was an amazing buffet lunch and nothing has ever tasted better in my life. We wanted to go to the lakes, the thermal pools and the ocean and he took us to all of them and MORE! We also got taken to the beach to an amazing little place called Tuka Tula where everyone knew him and was teasing him and we had lovely drinks. We never would have found this place without him, or been treated so well. We tried all the local Azores liquors at the Mulher de Capote, and soaked in the in the warm waters of the Termas de Ferraria (AMAZING!!!). He is also very funny and has a great sense of humor and was very entertaining. I would give it 50 stars if I could.

Thanks to Josef we got to see most parts of the island in one day. He was friendly, happy, personal and had amazing knowledge about the Azores. Best guide we have ever experienced!

Josef was great! We got an excellent tour of the west part of the island that took into account our interests, the changeable (!!) weather while avoiding the big crowds. We only booked the tour the night before, so were super lucky that he was still available. I have mixed feelings about taking tours from individuals who are originally from some other place. But with Josef I found his insights as an expat who has lived on the island for many, many years, helped me appreciate it.

Over the last four years we have been on several cruises and have taken various tours at many locations. I will have to say we booked with the absolute best tour guide we have ever had, that being Josef Steininger. If you book a tour with someone other than Josef you will be getting less for your money. Josef goes out of his way to make sure you see some very incredible sites and has his van equipped with a sound system and he narrates as you are driven from site to site. His knowledge of this island is very extensive and you will learn and see so much more than you will on a large bus. His van is comfortable and holds seven people. Josef is very good at working with the weather conditions as it is so unpredictable on this island. Josef has a great personality and is the most accommodating guide we have ever experienced. I assure you, he will provide you with the best tour of The Azores.

We visit Ponta Delgarda on a cruise but didn't want to join an organized excursion. We found this company on the main stretch of the port and although there were cheaper companies advertising in the nearby tourist information office we liked the way we were treated by the agent selling this company. We were right to go with Joseph! He gave us a wonderful tour, taking us to many places a coach can't reach and entertaining us all the way. It was so interesting to speak to a local person and learn more about the island.

We were met by our tour guide, Thomas, promptly from our cruise ship. A couple on holiday from Belgium were already in the Mercedes Van. We were hoping to visit Sete Cidades, because of the weather it was decided to visit Lagoa Do Fogo instead. We were also taken to a ceramic factory and where a liquor was made from Passion fruit. We stopped at the Hot Springs at Funas. If we had been prepared we could have taken a dip! This was a three to four hour tour, time to get a good insight to the island. More comfortable than being on a coach tour.

We stumbled onto this excursion after our cruise ship docked here and we recognized that there was much to see beyond the foot traffic. We found Vanessa stationed at a booth onshore and visited with her and booked our tour of the Sete Cicades and North Coast. What a find! Josef picked us up in his van and immediately made us feel comfortable and excited. Josef took care to show us spots that other tours might miss. He shared stories and legends. He took particular care to give us just the right photo opportunities. Josef made our visit the highlight of our entire vacation.

We visited Ponta Delgada and arrived by cruise ship (doing a trans-Atlantic trip). We hadn't booked any tour because they were limited. However once there we found Josef and it was the best tour of our entire trip. He has local knowledge and also strives to point out not just interesting facts but great picture opportunities. His knowledge of the area enabled us to see three times the sites for the half the price our ship mates paid. He also pointed out better angles for photo opportunities than the other tours were doing.

We paid our good money to go to the top of the crater on Sao Miguel on a totally rainy day! Ugh! It was a mess, with dense fog and rain and everything else. Regardless, our driver (Thomas) and other guide (whose name, I think, was Bruno), really made the most of it, and still managed to turn it into a fun day. They guided us on a hike around the lakes at the bottom, and took us to a number of interesting locations. This travel group is very professional, and they know how to communicate with almost anyone in any language. I would highly recommend using them for any tours in the Azores.

We had the opportunity to take the guided tours from the Azoren Travel Experts and I must say, it was the best our choice related to the all tours on the island. Brilliant service and knowledge of the island itself provided us the amazing time spent with them. I would like to recommend this company to everybody who would like to take guided tours. You cannot be disappointed! Evzen and Daria
