Great trip and what an experience at sea. We saw dolphins and blue whales and the staff on the boat were mega good. The guide who drove us around the island was skilled and friendly and he could answer EVERYTHING. We were 4 tourists +1 guide on tour and it was absolutely perfect. The weather was great that day and we took great pictures all the places we were. The lake of fire was beautiful and the hot springs were just what we needed. We ate lunch in a small cozy place and allergies etc. were taken into account. The food was good and so was the atmosphere. We were also on another whale safari with another company and it was not as good as this one at all. This trip can definitely be recommended. It was just such a good day.

We had 2 tours with Get Your Guide and the guide was the same - Hugo. We spent an excellent time. Hugo has a great knowledge of Azores, we leaned a lot about islands. Time was well managed, we had enough time to see everything without rush. The choice of local restaurants for lunch was very good! Thank you.

Whale trip was great, very knowledgeable, we saw lots of dolphins and a whale! Can get a bit choppy, bring your sea legs. The tour with Hugo was A++, absolutely perfect. Very knowledgeable of the island, perfect English spoken, lunch was amazing. Couldn't recommend this trip any more, just perfect.
