Great tour, highly recommended! We were shown great places in the Azores, had enough time to look around, learned a lot about the people and customs here and were more than thrilled with how uncomplicated and flexible Leon, our guide, explained everything to us! It was great to just sit back and not worry about anything.....Thanks for the great tour!

Fantastic tour with a friendly open-minded guide. We were picked up at the hotel in the morning and driven around the island all day. The guide was very open-minded and responded to all of our requests. We were allowed to cover the tour by 2 hours and made a special stop at the botanical garden in Furnis. At major sights we were given at least half an hour to an hour to look around in peace and alone. Because of the guide alone, this tour can be more than recommended. But the nature of the Azores is also breathtaking. During the tour we were offered a stop at some thermal bath springs. Unfortunately we had no swimwear with us. I would therefore recommend everyone to take swimwear with them as a precaution.
