Our guide was really good but we had a Portuguese couple with us and our guide spoke to them more than he did to us. I clearly asked for an English tour. It would also help if there was a stool to help people in and out of the van. He was very kind and booked us a table at Furnas for lunch. When we had one on one with us, he shared a lot of great information.

Our tour to Sete Cidades and Lagoa do Fogo was wonderful. The scenery is beyond spectacular! Our tour guide, Hugo M, brought us to places that we never would have found on our own. He shared so much about the history of the Azorean Islands, plus he was very friendly and open and made sure we had a very enjoyable experience! Lunch was delicious…very fresh, local foods.

We have done the excursion with Hugo, he has been super attentive, he tried by all means to avoid the fog, a very well organized excursion without the stress of schedules, he gave us time to admire the views, to take photos, to swim... Let's go one enjoyed. We are sure that we will repeat, as long as it is with Hugo.
