The tour itself was absolutely great and very well explained. All in all a very nice day trip. Furnas is a must-see when in Sao Miguel. The famous hot-earth stew wasn't missing either. The tea plantation and the Terra Nostra Park were also very worth seeing. However, the only negative was the meeting point: if you don't have the hotel in Ponta Delgada, you have to figure out how to get there...although the tour started by passing our hotel.On the other hand, on the way back, our driver kindly met us directly brought to our hotel.
