  • 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. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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 lovely day with a nice hike in the morning, a tasty lunch and a nice trip afterwards for getting to know this part of the island.

    We choose this tour “ Hiking to Salto do Prego in Faial da Terra - full day” the hike was so so beautiful “IT IS A MUST” if you don’t have time to do many hike choose this one.

    Our guide “ Nuno” was amazing, really, very helpful, informative/ knowledgeable & patient. He also help us take some photos

    He gave us l the hiking poles and they were very very helpful.

    The lunch included with the tour was really good, we had either chicken or tuna salad, and apples, desert and juice.

    If you choose this tour you will need your hiking boots/shoes, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, water, poles ( the company provide them), bathing suit if you want to swim, & camera or a phone to take beautiful photos… was really amazing
    Thank you

    I took a full day tour with Paulo, who turns out to be the owner of this company. He was professional from beginning to end, answering all the What’s app texts and communicating throughout to make me feel comfortable. There were 6 of us in this tour and any question any of us asked, Paulo answered knowledgeably , with patience, and you can see /feel his passion for his job . I appreciated that he drove safely throughout the day, we never felt rushed, and really felt that he wanted to make our day special and memorable(which it was). I loved that he chose a “ local” buffet restaurant as opposed to a tourist trap. He made sure we could always hear him and even had a microphone in the van so the people in the back could hear him. I have been on many tours throughout the world and I can tell you that Paulo is first class and I HIGHLY recommend you book any of his tours. You can tell how much he cares for people and that it’s not just about business. I thank Paulo for a tour that will stay with me forever and for his graciousness, kindness, knowledge , humor, and for being who he is.

    Ruben is very passionate, friendly and knowledgeable about the Azores. Our day was full of adventures hiking beautiful places that we would have not found on our own. He made our stay there the best experience of our Portugal trip and personalized what we did for our needs. He also recommended additional great places to see after and delicious restaurants in the area. If you visit Ponta Delgada, hiking with Ruben is a most! He is a lot of fun and he will create memories for life. Ruben takes pictures while hiking too. I would personally recommend this experience to everyone.

    What an experience!! Joao, our driver and guide created an experience of a lifetime for us. He was kind, patient and so knowledgeable. We spent a relaxing day exploring the island at our own pace, saw amazing sights and have a lifetime of great memories. Joao provide us with an authentic Azores picnic and he documented our journey by providing us a file of personal photos he took of us during the day . This is a must “do“ when you visit Sao Miguel. Joao is the best!

    First the negative - don't do this if you have a serious fear of heights. And if it's cloudy enough that you can't see the peaks from below, don't even bother.

    Now the positive - however scary some of the trail looks as if it might be from below, it isn't as bad as you expect when you get up to the scary-looking bits. And if you can see the views at all they are wonderful, especially on a very clear day.

    The trail itself is a mix of different landscapes, first climbing through a mossy gully, then past a green bog full of noisy frogs, then up a bleakly beautiful grassy cone to a lookout point with views for miles, followed by another lookout point with views of a lake, then through heath and bracken, down to some woods around a different lakeside, then a climb up through more woods and lovely plants.

    It's free, and there is a car park and very clear signage. Take a photo of the map in the car park, you won't need it but it's interesting to look at to see where you are.
