Samuel was an amazing tour guide! Knowledgeable, kind, funny, flexible (our party ranged from a 5 year to a 77 year old), expert navigator of tight curves and parking spots, and very proud of his beautiful home. We had an amazing time (we saw Sete Cidades, Furnas, the pineapple plantation, and many other beautiful spots over 1.5 days), and only wish we'd had more time to see more with him.

Highly recommend vs. renting a car on your own, especially for a larger party.
Ask for Samuel!!!

I cannot speak highly enough of Samuel - he is truly the ultimate tour guide! Knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and genuine. The weather on the day of our tour was not exactly stellar and presented some viewing challenges. Despite this, Samuel’s experience enabled him to expertly navigate the varying weather conditions which afforded us the best possible sightseeing tour. He was absolutely determined to provide us the best possible experience. It was a memorable day that my friend and I will never forget! Thank you Samuel! :)
Sammy, Sammy, Sammy!!

This was our first trip to The Azores (Sao Miguel) and it won't be our last. Truly a beautiful island. As rookies, we decided to do a tour of the island to see the important sights and landscapes.
Our tour guide was Sammy and he was fannntastic!! As luck would have it, the others of our expected group either cancelled or didn't show up so my husband and I got a "private" tour with Sammy.
He was very pleasant, friendly, and accommodating. His knowledge of the island history and the pertinent sights to see was impressive. We never felt rushed at any time of our tour. He was also a whiz with my phone/camera features! He knew someone everywhere we went!
This was the perfect way to be introduced to this beautiful island. Would definitely recommend..5 stars!!

Whole day with Samuel was great. He is very knowledgable and he rescheduled the tour according to the weather so that we could see as much as possible. I would recommend this tour to everybody.
