It was our favorite tour on our week trip! The views around Sete Cidades was unbelievable. I would say it was the best way to view this part of the city from above and below. We were lucky to have had great weather. Also, Felipe was very sweet. He would always offer to take photos and share insight about the Sao miguel. I would just recommend wearing a banana as we were covered in dirt after.

Beautiful day in magnificent landscapes and stops with unforgettable points of view. For the quads forget the sporty side and the sensations, especially for the Chinese brand quads which will hardly manage to make you climb the hills. You are here walking one behind the other. The lunchtime restaurant was good and sufficient. A great day with a great guide!

Booking of 6 single quads, very nice the tour on dirt led by Luigi (super expert guide is ready to answer all the various questions) and the whole Del Lago Azzurro club. Lunch at Sete Citades among the best made on the island in a week. A must do experience for a bit of adventure on four wheels.
