We booked a tour with Green Zone tours, but were assigned to Evaristo of Big Blue tours. Only 4 guests total in a van made for a comfortable ride with plenty of room. The tour of the island was very good, even though the weather was drizzly and somewhat foggy. Much better than the bus tour offered by the cruise ship.

We booked a tour with Jon and Evaristo instead of booking a touristy cruise excursion. With BigBlue, we were able to plan our day out with them -- a private tour of the island! It was reasonably priced and we got way more than our money's worth!

We told Jon and Evaristo that we wanted to see the real Azores and that is what we got! We got a little of everything plus lunch where the locals eat (OMG, the homemade wine was amazing!). Jon eve got a local shop owner to open up his store (he had closed for the day 30 minutes before we arrived) and sell us local products!

I cannot say enough of the wonderful men who toured us around. They made us feel like long-lost friends while showing us the beauty of their life and culture.

I stayed at Sao Miguel Park Hotel In Ponta Delgado and asked a friendly staff member at the front desk which tour to book. She very much recommended Evaristo with BigBlue Adventures for several reasons:
1. He will customize the tour for what you want to see, not just a pre-set package with no choices
2. His large van is VERY comfortable with plenty of room so you don't feel bumped around
3. His rates were better than anyone else
My husband and I got to see Sete Cidades, Furnas, and Vila Franco do Campo in the same day. We were very frank with Evaristo that we wanted to rent a car the next 2 days after his tour so he was so helpful in pointing out where to drive and what highways to take to the other places that we wanted to go. His tips truly made our driving much easier over the following days.
Great English, a nice guy, wonderful historian, fun stories from his 40+ years in the Azories, good sense of humor, enjoyable to be with, and a true gentleman - we recommend him for your tour! Email: evaristomelo@hotmail.com or www.bigblue-adventures.com

I was in the Azores on a Youth in Action exchange project with 14 young people, and our local PEJ Azores youth association partners had arranged with this tour company to take us around and arrange all excursions for us. The buses were always on time, with very helpful and communicative guides. Their service was excellent and if we needed to improvise a bit, they did on very short notice. They speak very well English and Evaristo speaks well Swedish also. We used them for horseback riding, whale watching, sightseeing, cave excursion, general transport to and from activities. Everything excellent! Absolutely recommended, and next time in Ponta Delgada I will use them for my excursions again. They can arrange anything you would like to do.
