It was such a nice day. Pick up at the hotel wich was nice because you didn't had to rush in the morning. It was an relaxed day with Bruno and really had a great time. Also because Bruno is such a nice person and we laughed the whole day. Didn't feel like we rushed things and we could see things at our own pace. Bruno told us a lot about the island and he probably knows everything. Just ask him! I would recommend this tour with Bruno to anyone!

choose this tour, the guide is simply amazing, he explains everything and gives you time to appreciate all views , always smiling and easy he gets you involved in all aspects of the island, from nature, history and economy. I couldn't ask for more.

The tour was amazing and the landscape were impressive. The geothermal activities of Furnas is definitely a must see. The guide was very helpful and answered all our questions.

A really great tour, seen a lot and responded to many wishes. Communication was great (English). A really great experience, this day.

Amazing places, fantastic guide, highly recommend! 'Must see' on the island
