What people are saying about Vista do Rei Lookout

Outstanding whale watching experience and Sete Cidades tour. The whale watching tour was cancelled due to bad weather, it was promptly and efficiently reprogrammed the next day according to our availability. The afternoon tour to Sete Cidades was performed as planned as the afternoon weather was better. Both activities are unmissable highlights of the island: we enjoyed every bit of them. Henrique has been a professional, likeable, available, knowledgeable guide. The tour is very family friendly: a short, easy hike to enjoy the scenery is walkable by children. 100% recommended! Olga, Alex and Luna

Great day with guided by someone local, who knows and shares what you'd like to know about Azores. All the great spots of the central-west side are covered in a single day, a must if you want to cover more ground.

Ruben was a fantastic tour guide. Note - the air is much cooler on the drive up to Sete Cidades than other parts of the island. A long-sleeve shirt plus a windbreaker is a must!

This tour was really fun, exceptionally beautiful, and full of adventure. We even got to ride our ATVs through a herd of cows coming down the road.

We had a great day discovering this part of Saô Miguel in the company of a friendly and attentive guide.
