What people are saying about Azores

Great day… for four people with a very nice young guide… crazy landscapes… green walks… swimming in sea water at 38 degrees…. Sunny day… (which is rather rare in the Azores even in August !!! !)… Everything is perfect except the picnic… a shame… inedible… while the food is not expensive in the Azores…. Unripe fruit with a tiny sandwich… dry… and a small brick of filthy juice… in short .. not a bottle of water .... in the description of the day we talked about a snack ... nothing other than these three tiny filthy things all day long .... too bad it ruins the price ...

We were very lucky to be the only couple to have the experience. Having a guide who for half a day took us and explained the most characteristic places on the island was fantastic. Super prepared guide and available to meet our needs. Super recommended!

Our driver took us to some wonderful places--the lake in the volcano, beach, views that were amazing. He was very informative on the history. wild life, and plants.
