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.

    Single best adventure ever. No reason to visit Azores without this experience! Wonderful guides. Safe, simple, outstanding.

    What a fantastic way to explore the island! We spent the morning on a quad bike tour, visiting the old Aqua ducts, and on up to the highest peak to take photos of the Sete Cidades. We then cane down to the lake to have coffee & a snack before taking a different route across the mountains back to our start point.

    I highly recommend this tour to everyone. It was definitely our favourite part of the Azores. The guide was extremely friendly & knowledgeable, and gave us great insights on the Island.

    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!

    Sergio did an excellent job engaging us and the others in our jeep, providing history and information about the area. He shared personal insights and a bit of family history as it pertains to the area. He also provided contact information to get recommendations after the tour if needed. We were fortunate to have some clear skies for our morning tour making for beautiful views. The Jeep ride was adventuresome, bumpy (necessary to get around on dirt roads), but felt safe. We would definitely book a longer tour in the future with Sergio.

    Communication with ANC is timely and very clear. Their kiosk is a short walk from the port. Our guide, Andre, picked us up there promptly at our arranged time. After a short van ride we arrived at their shop and completed any paperwork. Andre led us up to the volcano making several stops along the way to explain the topography and culture. The hills were lush and green. Traffic was minimal so we felt very safe. Once we reached the summit the views were incredible. Andre knew exactly where to stop to avoid larger crowds. We stopped at a park to have a rest and enjoy the view. There was a cafe to grab a bite and beverage if you desire. We arrived back at the shop with plenty of time to explore the city center of Ponta Delgada. This is a great company and wouldn’t hesitate to tour with them again!

    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!

    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!

    Great views and informative tour guide. Took lots of great photos for us. Would do it again and would recommend this tour company. Since nobody else was booked on our tour, our tour guide took us to more places than planned.

    We took the Sete Cidades Quad tour while visiting Sao Miguel with Felipe as our guide. We were a bit skeptical as the weather was poor that day, heavy fog and very limited visibility but Felipe took us on an adventure!!! We had a fantastic time and definitely got off the beaten path! Highly recommend Felipe and ANC Azores Holidays. Will use them again when we return to the island for sure!!!!

    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.

    The views were spectacular, riding along the trails was breathtaking, we saw a baby calf born that morning, and we even stopped for expresso in Sete Cidades! The tour guide was super knowledgeable, friendly, and a blast to be around. I’d book this outing time and time again and I can easily say this a higher value deal, but you can tell he cares about giving people a good time!

    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.

    Fantastic trip - guide was great, the right amount of chatting and informative, without feeling like I'd been to a lecture. The views are definitely worth the trip, though we were on a cloudy day so telling the two lakes apart was impossible.

    I found this tour on the site and it offered everything I wanted. We had been to the Azores before so was looking for a more unique tour.
    Carlos gave us just that and more.
    We had an incredible time with him. My photos are just amazing and the best bit was that he took us to places that had very few other people there. We felt like locals rather than tourists.
    Carlos offers a fantastic service. He was on time for the pick, he gave us a brief induction on what to expect(4x4’s ) can be very rocky and a bumpy drive.
    His knowledge of the island and more made the trip super interesting and the fact he is a local guy really enhanced the tour.
    The vehicle was in excellent condition and very clean.
    The ride was exciting. All in all the tour was exceptional value for money and if you want to see the real Azores rather than the standard tourist area then I suggest you take this experience Carlos offers.
    Carlos speaks English extremely well too so that was a plus for us.
    I can’t say enough good things about our time with Carlos and the Azores.
    My husband left his phone in the vehicle but no worries one quick call and Carlos was back at the Port phone in hand….

    We took the full day tour with our teenage son. It was definitely the best day of our vacation in the Azores. The machines were new and meticulously maintained so there was no worry about safety. We saw some stunning scenery, took amazing photos, and had a delicious lunch. Our tour guide, Filipe, was friendly, professional, and accommodating. He had great information about the island and took great care to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. I recommend this tour operator without reservation. Tip: if they offer to lend you a jacket, take it. It was so cold in the higher elevations!
