I had the most wonderful time on this tour. It was entertaining, educating, enjoyable, scrumptious (lunch). The combination of this awesome Island and a guide who really loves his island and how everybody from the gouvernement til the farmers work hard to preserves the beauty that is Sao Miguel. Our guide João will tell you all about that. João found the right mix of fun, seriousness, connection with the people in his van and in the meantime showing us all these wonderful places. Really highly recommended!

A great trip! With an excellent and well informed well spoken expert tour guide named Joquan. Visiting all sites listed but was provided with so much more in terms of Sao Miguel and it’s history.
