James was extremely helpful before and during the trip, always ensuring my safety and enjoyment. Eventhough it was pretty misty up the mountain, I still really enjoyed my bike trip and the things I learned from James. 1000% recommend!!

Bikes were in excellent condition. Tour guide was a wealth of information about the island and history of the Azores and 2 hours was just the right amount of time to do a tour of this kind. Highly recommended!
