Nice day all together. View on Lagoa de Fogo , stroll in the park (decided by the group) , view on the coast , quick stop by the ocean. A lot done in half a day. For another time: I’d skip the park time to spend more time at the beach . The guide provided many interesting information about the islands . Transport was rather comfortable, however for the highlights of the tour a 4WD was not necessary.

Joan and Rodrigo (sorry if I spelled it wrong) picked us up right in front of the ship, Joan spoke German very well! The 2 gave us a wonderful trip, we drove to places that were also off the tourist hotspots. We learned a lot about the Azores, history, country and people. We can definitely recommend the excursions with GYG and their local partners. Thanks for the nice time!

An excellent small group tour

Our tour guide Joao is very energetic and knowledgeable to give us detail and history of every place we are visit. We are visiting many places in a half day tour in a small van and we are able to reach places that a big tour bus cannot. I would strongly recommend this tour for others
