The hosts were very accomidating to pick us up when the location was changed. They were also very quick to respond to our questions. We would have liked to stop more often to take in the views and take pictures.

Bikes were in excellent condition. Tour guide was a wealth of information about the island and history of the Azores and 2 hours was just the right amount of time to do a tour of this kind. Highly recommended!
