Full description
Start the tour by visiting Monte Brasil, where you can see the Fortress of São João Baptista, built by the Spanish during their conquest of the Azores. Enjoy fantastic views of the UNESCO World Heritage City of Angra do Heroísmo. Proceed along the southeast of Terceira Island towards the villages of Ribeirinha, Feteira, and São Sebastião. See beautiful natural landmarks such as Serra da Ribeirinha and the Ilhéus das Cabras, culminating in a visit to the island's oldest church. Next, stop at Serra do Cume, a viewpoint located in Terceira's largest "caldeira". Observe the vast expanse of agricultural fields spread out the island. Enjoy some free time in the charming town of Praia da Vitória. Continue along the northern coast of the island and visit the Biscoitos Natural Swimming Pools. Have an optional visit to Algar do Carvão, an empty volcanic chimney, and Gruta do Natal (lava tube) which take about 30-40 minutes each.

The tour was absolutely amazing thanks to our guide Nuno, he is the absolute best!!! We have seen the whole island, local traditions of Holy Spirit Celebration, hidden beautiful places and many others - Gruta de Natal, Algar do Carvão, Furnas. It was a true full day adventure thanks to Nuno! Definitely recommend it

We did the tour with Nuno Rocha. We had an amazing day tour of Terceira. Nuno is a wonderful guide, he showed us all around the Island and explained everything. He even showed us extra bits to make sure we explored every corner of Terceira Island. We saw so many things we probably would have missed if we didn’t do the tour. It was an awesome mixed of very different and unique landscapes. Nuno is passionate about his island and know so much about it. He was very nice and funny. It was great fun to explore the island with him. We definitely recommend Nuno ! Thanks a lot :)

We didn't have the possibility of renting a car, so we decided for this tour and it was a good decision - the tour was great and our guide Pedro was very nice and shared a lot of history facts, along with some fun facts about the island and the Azores in general! We had enough time in every stop to take pictures and enjoy the sights and Pedro answered all of our questions regarding our stay, definitely would recommend to take this tour.
