The experience has been very good, the guide Luis very friendly involved and with knowledge of the entire island, you could ask him what you wanted and he would answer everything with very good explanations. If I had not done this tour I would have missed many things and very good views that I would not have seen by car and landscapes. I recommend it, do not stop doing it.

Amazing experience. Showed us around sete cicades did some stops along the way. Due to the bad weather for the afternoon and days after, Azores outdoor activities contacted us to move our excursion to a earlier time. Which worked out great!

One of the best activities and a different way to visit the Seven Cities area. Wonderful landscapes and a better experience accompanied all the time by our friendly guide. I totally recommend it, one of those experiences you never forget

Super recommended experience! Filipe was a great guide and took us to spectacular places that we would never have been!

Highly recommended!! Amazing ride and excellent guide ;)
