We went to the Azores with Mein Schiff3, unfortunately there were no more excursions available through TUI Cruise. Thank God we had a fantastic tour with wonderful impressions through Get your Guide with our guide Hugo Melo, who presented his island with body and soul. We fell in love with the island of Sao Miguel and will visit it again for a holiday. The lunch was excellent with the locals with many delicious specialties and local drinks. The only tea plantation in Europe was well worth seeing and interesting and was explained to us in great detail and we tasted and bought green tea, with the tour guide helping us very nicely. I can only recommend Get your Guide and will book the next tour there again.

My Son, Brad, and I booked this tour for the second day of our trip, figuring we would get some education and tips on the Island and suggestions/advice for the days ahead. Antonio was an Awesome guide, full of energy and a great sense of humor. He and his crew prepared a tasty lunch including the Alcatra Stew and some vegan things for those who prefer. Do this trip up front on your trip

We loved this activity! Paulo was an engaging and knowledgeable guide, answering all of our questions. The dinner was nice but the highlight was definitely enjoying the hot springs in the evening. Super relaxing and a unique experience. Highly recommended if you don't want to plan anything but still want a memorable time!

We had so much fun with Antonio. The lunch was delicious. A must do.

Antonio is a great guider, we enjoyed every moment during the tour.
