Full-Day Furnas Guided Tour with Optional Hot Springs
- Small group
- Transportation included
- Skip the ticket line
We were picked a little after 9 am. Our guide gauged what we have seen so that he could show us other and different places. We went to see how cozidos are cooked followed by a visit to the tea plantation. We really liked Furnas and had some sweetcorn boiled in the sulphur water (tasty). We were shown around 14 springs and we tried the water from each one of them. I don't think we would have done that without the guide. He was able to explain to us about the water and taste. Furnas is beautiful. The lunch (cozido) was absolutely delicious. We then visited the original Bolos Levedos bakery (sweet bread; so fresh). We visited the lake in Furnas and then went up to the viewpoint. Nordeste was next and we really enjoyed the waterfall and watermill. Because of the weather (fog and rain) we could not go to the lighthouse. Overall, we liked this tour as it is well organised and what we were shown beautiful. Our only recommendation would be for bottled water to be provided.
When we booked the trip, we didn't know how large our group will be, so it was a nice surprise that there were only 7 of us, and we could travel in a small van. The guide was friendly and helpful, the lunch was plenty (actually double the size we would have needed), and the sights were beautiful. I can only recommend this activity to fellow travelers.
We loved our tour of Sao Miguel Island! Julia, our tour guide was amazing. She gave us enough time for pictures at each stop. We had a very congenial group. Each stop on the tour was so amazing!! Loved the lunch in Furnace too! At the conclusion of the day we felt like old friends!
Our guide provide expert information. He was friendly, professional and extremely helpful. My husband has some mobility issues and our guide was very attentive. The tour was fantastic and well worth the money. I highly recommend the guide and the tour!
The awesome wonder of this amazing island, it's natural beauty. Tour guide was excellent and very attentive and obliging but the nature speaks for itself, no one needs to sell it. It is evident for all to see
