What people are saying about Poça da Dona Beija

Well-being at all costs...from a volcanic island springs from the thermal waters: hot, rich in iron, they invite us to become one in order to emerge strengthened and rejuvenated. A unique experience to discover together with the tasting of the local pot au feu cooked with volcanic steam.

This was an amazing tour. Paulo was an informative and friendly guide. The information he provided was interesting and knowledgeable. The pastry shop, furnas area, tea plantation and all the other stops we made were wonderful.
