Pedro was a wealth of knowledge and provided us an incredibly interesting and fun tour of Terceira. He was very accommodating and a pleasure to spend the day with. Highly recommend this tour for those who want to get to know all the ins and outs of the island, its culture, and its fascinating history.

It was a perfect full day tour with a very good guide. We were shown well-known but also off-the-beaten-path regions. The information was very good and understandable in English. Our wishes were taken into account and the tour designed accordingly. Any time,!

The tour exceeded all expectations. Guide Pedro took us to all the locations, giving us time for video shooting, talking about the places visited. The tour is very interesting. Many thanks to Pedro
