This tour starts by visiting the pineapple plantations 'Augusto Arrudo', near Ponta Delgada city, where you will see how the pineapple is produced inside of greenhouses.

After the pineapple plantations, you will see the south coast of the island until we arrive to one of the most important viewpoints of this tour - Escalvado Viewpoint - where you will see the most recent eruption that São Miguel island had.

After this, you will go to the Sete Cidades volcano and stop in the village itself inside of the crater, where you will see interesting spots. Then, you will go to one of the most iconic viewpoints of the island - Vista do Rei (king's view) - where you will see the striking two-colored lagoon (the blue and green parts)

We absolutely love our tour with Sam! His passion and love for the Azors and Sete Cidades was contagious and helped us appreciate the beauty of the island. He knew all the best spots with the perfect views to visit. On top of everything, he is also a great photographer and helped snap pro shots of us throughout the tour. I wish we had more time to go on additional adventures with Sam!
Great morning around the island

Samuel was a great tour guide, not only taking us to beautiful lookouts, but also sharing the history of the island along the way. We were stopping over in Ponta Delgada for a long layover from Madeira and booked this tour last minute, and we’re very glad we did!
You will not be disappointed!

This is one of the best tours we ever did in our traveling. Sam is such a personable, caring guide who knows and is willing to share so much about Azores. 4 hours went so fast! Sam never looked at the clock, never rushed us and was very respectful. He shared a lot about his life, that made the tour even more real and enjoyable.
Please give this small business owner a try, you will
Not be disappointed. His English is excellent!
5 stars tour
