Full description
Discover all of São Miguel Island's west coast in one day on this guided tour. Enjoy scenic views as you visit small lakes, exclusive viewpoints, a pineapple plantation, and Sete Cidades. Learn the history behind the landscapes you explore. Start your trip with a pickup from your hotel. Meet your expert guide who will be with you along your adventure. Start learning the history and nature of the Azores archipelago. Then, head straight to Sete Cidades, with the first stop being at Vista do Rei viewpoint (King's view), shortly after we visit the village for a small break around the lake. Sete Cidades is one of the seven natural wonders of Portugal and is considered by many the most iconic view of the Azores and surely one of Portugal as well. After Sete Cidades, we head to Mosteiros village to admire the islets and to get in touch with the culture of this small village. Shortly after we stop for lunch at a local restaurant. Right after lunch, we continue our tour through the western part of the island until we reach Capelas village to visit the iconic Port, where many years ago the locals used to depart for whale hunting. We finish the tour with a visit to the Pinneaple plantations in Ponta Delgada for a taste of the king fruit.

André was an awesome guide, showing us breathtaking spots while telling about all historical and other facts. He adapted the trip to our individual needs by letting us choose a spot for relaxing and taking a bath and brought us to a delicious traditional restaurant, try them pulpo there if you can! And not to forget - André was an awesome photographer as well ;) We would definitely recommend to book this tour, it was perfect.

Very good guided tour. We see a lot of magnificent viewpoints and the best view is at Grotto do Inferno. Take your time there. The restaurant at lunch is very good. Just to propose to give a chance for stops at Cete de Cidades to see the lakes at close
