This was one of our favorite tours in Terceira. We walked through a lava tube and then walked down a volcano cone and saw a fresh water pool at the bottom of the volcano. Our group of 4 found this tour very interesting and James is wonderful explaining what we were seeing!
Efficient tour of the island highlights.
