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.

    We booked 4 private van outings with Azores Trails of Nature, as we were traveling with our young child and could not go on long hikes. It ended up being a lovely way to see Sao Miguel, without having to worry about driving or planning our excursions. Our guide Rui was lovely - informative, warm and accommodating. For example, on our last outing to Nordeste, it happened to be a cloudless day, so we decided to revisit Lagoa do Fogo, which had been very overcast the first time. Rui reworked our itinerary on the spot. He also very kindly drove back to our apartment after we in advertently left our son's goggles in the car -- we arrived home after a meal to see the goggles hanging from the doorknob. It was a very thoughtful and appreciated gesture. We had a wonderful time and are already thinking about when we can return!

    My husband and I were on two-day private tour with a very knowledgable and friendly young woman, named Natasha. She asked what type of places I wanted to photograph and she took us to the most wonderful, scenic places on Sao Miguel Island. She went out of her way for us so we would have a wonderful experience on the island.

    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.

    Home is where Alabote is!
    It was my second time fishing with José& Son Miguel aboard the alabote.
    Expections were high, Results were bigger.
    Those fishermen are the Best guides you can ever find, even some days can be hard, they will find the fish and put you on.
    Very friendly and Kind, professional (I liked the smart choices of the lures, not just putting something on more like what is the best right now with sea conditions weather , are they working good... reeling line in and out to get the best out of the bait), everytime looking that their customers get the Best out of the day.
    They will take any effort for fishing.
    They don't Look for Just earning money, their First priority is getting fish, big fish.
    Most beautiful day was day 3, going to Princess Alice Bank, starting 3am in the morning. The others were awesome too but that day I will never forget!
    I had my 3 Best days in a breathtaking atmosphere seeing whales, dolphins, sharks and beside that I got any fishing Information explained even I was Not asking for. Awesome!!
    Result of 3 days 3-10 on Blue Marlin with a fish of a lifetime, a 800 pounder!

    All in all, those fishermen did my year 2023.
    I am proud to be a Part of your boat again and looking forward to come back once again.
    Thank you again Miguel and José
    You did it!!!!

    I would Highlights Recommend that to any people/ fishermen out there

    11 out of 10 points from me !

    Best regards

    Jakob

    Myself and 14yr old son had a great time fishing along the coast. Neither of us had been sea fishing before. My son caught 4 fish which was great. We also got to take home the three trigger fish, freshly filleted and ready to cook. Yum!

    After checking various local fishing providers, I decided to choose Captain Adriano. Because I call myself an experienced fisherman, I strongly looked out for the best solution.
    My first trip was - together with my wife - the 4h trolling and bottom ground tour. Very nice tour, good fishing spots, nice fish and even my wife had a lot of fun. We both enjoyed the trip very much. But for me even more important was, that I experienced Captain Adriano as a very experienced , serious, trustful, helpful provider ( besides that, he is simply a very, very nice guy).
    So I decided to join him for big game fishing. Real fishermen know, that there is never a guarantee for a catch. He never gave me a guarantee and that made him very reliable. Good sign! We went for tuna fishing. It was a little bit too early in the year. But Adriano did everything he could. He constantly looked out for birds ( which is often a good sign for tunas hunting) , he moved around, he did everything. All the time I noticed, that he would like to bring me to success. And indeed, we had a happy end. I caught a wonderful, big tuna.
    The boat, Ratinho, is in a very good condition. Also the tackle ( rods, lures, etc).

    So overall and to summarize - leaving Sao Miguel I take very good thoughts with me. I chose the best Captain I could have imagined. A big thanks to Adriano. Take care, my friend, and always „tight lines“.

    I highly recommend your fishing trips, bottom fishing as well as big game. Cheers, Uli
