The awesome wonder of this amazing island, it's natural beauty. Tour guide was excellent and very attentive and obliging but the nature speaks for itself, no one needs to sell it. It is evident for all to see

Boring

During the tour we were in 2 couples (and another person joined at the last for a half-day tour), and in Ponta Delgada the traditional religious festival was underway with the influx of the whole population. To take and return the person we lost about 1 hour in the traffic (without counting that from the top of the mountain we had to go down and then go up again, and I don't understand why they didn't plan a separate tour for him). The whole day on the van (with the window down and cold air coming in, without air conditioning, causing my partner to have a fever and not being able to participate in the second day paid and not reimbursed) and get off with boring and super tourisans (avoiding others much more exclusive and beautiful). A whole day to see the lake de sete cidades (which came to boredom at the end), as in a tour for old people with motor problems. Discouraged. EXPENSIVE AND UNUSABLE. All 4 disappointed, and the women slept.
