Lorenzo and Joao were amazing on our bird watching tour! Even though the weather was less than predictable, my husband and I had a lot of fun and felt very safe throughout the journey. We learned a lot about the local sea birds and the Azorean marine life. Would recommend this trip to everyone! Thanks again, Ivy

We had 2 tours with Get Your Guide and the guide was the same - Hugo. We spent an excellent time. Hugo has a great knowledge of Azores, we leaned a lot about islands. Time was well managed, we had enough time to see everything without rush. The choice of local restaurants for lunch was very good! Thank you.

Whale trip was great, very knowledgeable, we saw lots of dolphins and a whale! Can get a bit choppy, bring your sea legs. The tour with Hugo was A++, absolutely perfect. Very knowledgeable of the island, perfect English spoken, lunch was amazing. Couldn't recommend this trip any more, just perfect.

amazing experience with a passionate guide that went out of his way to show us all the beautiful secrets of the island , and gave as an impromptu geography lesson of the azores... amazing stuff

We had an amazing morning and our guide was so flexible, changing the itinerary around to suit the weather better and so that we could get a view of the lakes at Sete Cidades
