  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews.

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.

    It was a great tour. I was impressed by the quality of the boat and accesories provided, but mainly by the knowledge of the tour guides!

    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.

    Returning for another adventure with João.

    This time on the West full-day tour with lunch, where we were very lucky to see dolphins during our meal break.

    The food was exceptional!

    Despite my tendency for car sickness, I felt comfortable throughout. He's an amazing driver.

    Meeting a curious cow on our way back to the hotel added a delightful touch.

    João's warmth and care made this tour unforgettable, and it will always hold a special place in our hearts.

    We took his recommendations for restaurants near our hotel and were very happy.

    Thanks João!

    What a great experience! The skipper and marine biologists were exceptional which gave us the opportunity to see hundreds of dolphins and even a humpback whale. The dolphins were on both sides of the boat with many young ones with their mothers.
    The boat ride was adventurous as it is powerful and fast! The waves would spray water onto us but the tour includes wet gear.
    The perfect morning experience!

    The tour was well paced. A nice balance of nature scenery and history. The tour guide Joao was attentive and responsive to our interests and offered suggestions. As a first time visitor to the Azores it was the perfect way to kick off our vacation!

    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!

    We were met by Denis (our tour guide) about 20 minutes early near our ship. There were no other passengers on this tour, so we had our own individual tour of the island. He was very knowledgeable about the area and spoke very good English. Overall, outstanding tour experience that we would recommend to any future tourist of San Miguel island in the Azores!

    We had almost no communication from the ship when at sea, but the Azores Whale Watching TERRA AZUL did everything they could in helping us to be able to take the excursion when we arrive at the port. They were very professional in arranging the transportation. The tour was very interesting and our guide - a young lady, was very knowledgeable. She even personally helped us when walking on uneven grounds - We are senior citizens with some disability. Soaking in the hot springs was unique experience. We wish we come again. Magdalena i Howard
