“Outsanding tour with the local knowledge to make it truly unique and fun”
Reviewed 4 June 2011

We took the full day tour of Sete Cidades/Lagoa do Fogo.
From the moment we were picked up through the end of the tour it was a fabulous experience. Our guide was local and knew the details and history of each and every place we visited. He took us to major attractions as well as out of the way sites that undoubtedly only the locals know. His English was excellent so communication was no problem.
We mentioned the pineapples grown in green houses we had herd about so he brought as there at the end of the tour and guided us through the area with detailed explanations of the growing process. The Land Rover was basically comfortable and easily made its way through the off road paths we occasionally explored. There were 6 guests in the Land Rover and had it been filled to capacity (8) it might have been a little cramped, but the only way to get to some of the places we saw was in a Land Rover so it was the right vehicle for the tour.

“FABULOUS”
Reviewed 28 May 2011

We reserved the small jeep because it was easier to climb in and out. ELVIS gave us a wonderful tour of Ponta Delgada using small roads that enabled us to see the interior of the island. We drove through lovely farmland with one picturesque view after another; rarely seeing another car. Viewing the green lake and the blue lake from the top of the caldera was a highlight. Great price, friendly intimate service as the tour can be customized to your wishes. MUCH better than the ships tour for this port day.

“Greenzone is an intimate, informative, fun tour.”
Reviewed 27 September 2010

We did the full day Furnas trip. Eduardo our driver and guide was very knowledgeable and could answer almost all of our questions. Our group was seven plus Eduardo and we went leisurely non-stop all day. It was by far the best tour we took in the two weeks we spend in the Azores. My only wish was that we had another day and could do the Sete Cidades tour also.

“Great Jeep Tours Green zone Azores”
Reviewed 19 May 2009

Based in Ponta Delgada, [----] , we did two half day tours to Sete Cidades and Lagoa do Fogo, well worth the money.
Each tour is about three and a half hours, Sandra gave interesting chat points but did not give too much information to bore.
Great scenery, if I had gone by private car I would have missed a lot.
They give discounts for internet bookings.
