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.

    The tour was amazing with Mariano. We had a rough idea of what we wanted to see, and he was able to show us all we wanted and more. He had great recommendations and showed us some great spots. He was super knowledgeable about the island and was an overall pleasure to spend the day with. I highly recommend booking this tour with Mariano. One of the best I have done!

    Three of us were led by. Mario Rosa of Idílico Azores
    Inspire of foggy conditions, Mario is an excellent guide. With passion he guided us through the history of the region., The floraand fauna and economics of the area. Mario also shared historical and cultural history making the place come alive.

    We would certainly recommend him😊

    This was amazing! We got so much done it such a short amount of times it’s actually quite unbelievable. We were here for a little short of two weeks and only booked one day of a guided tour with Philipe and Marica. I wish I would have booked another guided tour with them! You can see so much and learn so much about the island in such a short period of time. Highly recommend!

    This was an all day tour (7 hours). We joined two other couples as Jose took us all around the island including the craters as well as the upper ridges of the volcanoes.

    Jose stopped at prime locations for pictures and conversation. We enjoyed lunch which he arranged at a local restaurant.

    MOST impressive was Jose's knowledge. He was a combination of historian, botanist, and geologist! A FOUNTAIN of information!

    My husband Mike & I had an awesome day touring all of the west and Sete Cidades. Our tour guide Rita was brilliant. She was very friendly & knowledgeable. We learned so much about the Azores. She was very patient and kind. We never felt rushed at all. The views were absolutely amazing. You have to see it all in person to really appreciate the beauty. We were in awe of the lovely green grass, the mountains, the lakes and of course all of the happy cows. We hope to return to this beautiful Island. Thank you Rita.

    Jose is an outstanding local guide. His in-depth knowledge gave us insight into the history, culture and wonderful nature of Sao Miguel. We explored the Furnas area and had amazing time experiencing the thermal pools, tasting cozido cuisine and sampling tea and mineral doing waters. Thank You Jose for a memorable day!

    Vasco was an amazing host and guide. He shared his wealth of historical and cultural knowledge while finding us the best views of Sete Cidades. Restaurante Lagoa Azule provided a great sampling of local favorites. The local pineapple tour was the perfect wrap to a wonderful day.

    Mariano was a top notch guide and excellent driver. He is extremely knowledgeable of the Azores, you can ask him anything and he will have an answer better than any website or travel book. We travelled with 3 young kids, and Mariano transformed a volcano into the best playground in the world.

    My wife and I did a private tour with a gentleman named Tiago Costa. He did a great job and took us places I don’t think we would have been able to see if not for him. We never felt rushed, and he was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional. He also took us to lunch at his family’s lovely restaurant which had a beautiful view, and really delicious food. It was all thoroughly enjoyable. I’d highly recommend him, and the tour, to anyone.

    What an amazing day! Miguel was our guide for the day, and we can’t say enough good things. Our cruise was hours late to arrive, but no problem, Miguel was there waiting for us. He took us everywhere we wanted to see, and threw in a few extra note worthy spots. Highly recommend!

    This was the best tour we’ve ever done. Daniel our guide was knowledgeable, interesting, and patient with our kiddos, and the Land Rover got us to many places we would not have seen otherwise. We could not get to Lagoa do Fogo due to visibility so Daniel gave us some great alternative options. We were exhausted after a long travel day the day before and this was an easy and fun way to see a huge amount with two little kids. Highly recommend Green Azores!

    We spent an amazing day with our guide Paulo. Since we only had 1 day for our tour of Sao Miguel, Paulo arranged a perfect day for us which included all we wanted to see and then some. In the course of the day we visited sete cidades, Furnas, the hot springs for leisurely bathing, the tea plantation, along with a delicious lunch, and more. His knowledge of the island is impressive. His English is excellent and he even helped us navigate some Portuguese expressions. We highly recommend this guide. You will not be disappointed.

    Eduardo picked us up on time at the cruise ship port and took us on a fabulous full day tour. He was well informed and obviously very familiar with the tour area. He adjusted the sequence of our tour by closely monitoring the weather and we avoided the rain in every stop we made. We stopped for an excellent buffet lunch and avoided the big cruise ship crowds as much as possible. 5 star service by Eduardo, kudos to Into the Wild!!
