I had such a wonderful time on this tour. The guide, Andre was so personable and so knowledgeable and he truly enjoys showing off his island and it shows. And he was able to answer all of the questions about anything island related. Such a wealth of knowledge. I could not have asked for a better experience. My favorite moments of the day were the hot baths and the pineapple farm. The island is beautiful with the colors shining bright throughout. I highly recommend this tour. Thank you Andre for such a wonderful day and such an amazing spirit!

Tour TOTALLY recommended! The guide, Nuno, is 10. He took us to spectacular places. He gave us a tour with incredible and little frequented places. This tour together with Furnas and Sete Cidades cannot be missed if you visit the island of São Miguel.
