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.

    Our half day tour which included a visit to the tea plantaion was excellent but ended up as a whole day tour, and we had to request an early return to the ship or it would have gone on a lot longer. Our driver and guide was Cesar and he knew everything about the island and every one on it, it seemed.
    We were two couples in a Merceded Sprinter and the tour was significantly less expensive than the Celebrity Cruise offering of something similar, but was probably a mush better tour with a local guide and a group of four that made the tour quite personal. Overall one of the best excusrsions we have ever been on, and one that made us really feel like visiting the island of Sao Miguel again.

    Five of us had the great pleasure of spending three days touring Sao Miguel with Rui. He was wonderfully kind, patient, helpful, and informative, sharing his love for his island home. He was very willing to accommodate requests, modifying one itinerary to include a spot of special interest (geothermally heated beach), and make lunch reservations for us at a restaurant of our choice.

    Compared with other tour options, reserving by the van was much more economical than five single tour reservations with others. His Mercedes van was spotless, spacious, and comfortable.

    Rui truly treated us as friends, and we leave Sao Miguel with wonderful memories of the island, our drives, and of him. Thanks, Rui!

    Pedro offers an amazing service. His small group tours are packed with interesting and varied stops. We took 1 half day tour to Sete Cidades and 2 full day tours to Furnas and Nordeste. Pedro's pride and love for his island are evident in his insightful commentaries. Anyone wanting to get the most out of their visit to Sao Miguel simply has to see the island through his eyes. Thank you for making our vacation so special.

    I rented a car with Atlantic Secrets. Best rent a car place in Ponta Delgada. They picked us up at the airport and took us to the rental car spot where the car was clean, and ready for our trip around the island.

    I was in Ponta Delgada with my wife and booked two tours with OneTravel - San Miguel East with Furnas and Sao Miguel West with Setes Cidades. I wish to acknowledge excellent organization and superb tour guides who presented the beauties of Sao Miguel. I will recomend this service to my friends for sure.

    Our tour guide was absolutely incredible during our visit to Sete Cidades. Maria was super knowledgeable and very personable. She took the time to ensure we saw all the key vista points. Never did she rush us in any way. While the sights were so incredible, Maria made you feel like you were traveling with a close friend. Looking forward to our next visit Ponta Delgada and touring with Maria.

    This Ponta Delgada company offers taxis for hire and exploration of Sao Miguel island in hired vehicle with driver.
    Rentals are usually fot 5 hours. Good for people who hesitate to drive abroad.
    We heard they also "do weddings".

    Had to book the last minute as our plans had changed, and contacted Azores Best Tours & Transfers on the night before our tour and Nicolas was able to provide immediate service for private tours to the areas we were interested in. He immediately gained our trust with his approach. We are so glad I contacted and selected them.
    Our driver Flavio was amazing, professional, kind, talkative enough for our style and flexible. Thank you so much Flavio, you've made our trip to Ponta Delgada memorable!
    Highly recommended, do not hesitate.

    I’ve been to the Azores a number of times, and decided to broaden my experience by going to Flores. Found Sergio, and am so glad I did. He picked us up from airport, took a friend and I around the island for two half day tours, and provided transportation back to the airport. We didn’t have to do a thing but show up! He’s a wonderful guide, full of information and insight, warm, caring and so pleasant to spend time with. We feel so fortunate that we got to spend our short time on Flores with Silvio. You’ll do yourself a favor if you book his services.
