Cattle transport like Jeep ride.

Seats/bunks at the back of the Jeep facing each other were too high so we had to squat Down to be able to see through the windows. The guide was excelente (5 stars) but again being at the far back of the Jeep it was Hard to understand his comments.

We had a great time with Sergio going on the half-day Jeep Tour. The weather was gorgeous, and we had clear skies to take in all the views. Sergio was more than knowledgeable about the area and ensured we had a great time. He made excellent recommendations for the remainder of our time on the island. Highly recommend this tour if you want to get away from the city and see some of the smaller villages and areas around the island.

Not as much off road driving as anticipated but the low clouds negated much of it. Nevertheless our driver guide was extremely personable and very good providing much useful local information. We saw a lot in the allocated time.

This tour is a must! Our tour guide Eduardo is top notch. He made me fall in love with the island. He knows the Azores intimately and shares all local information on how truly special this place is. He took us to the best spots and took the BEST pictures! He was also very funny and so attentive if we needed anything. I can’t wait to go back and would highly recommend this tour if you are traveling solo, with friends or family. I’m so glad I took advantage of my 8 hour layover. They scooped me up at the airport and dropped me back off. I’ve been traveling in Europe for 2 weeks and this is still my favorite tour. 5 stars for Eduardo!

Sergio was a great tour guide! We all had a great trip. From the beautiful vista points to the off road paths and listening to all the information on the history of the sites, all around was a wonderful tour. After the tour Sergio gave us great recommendations on restaurants and pointed us in the right direction. We look forward to visiting the island again someday!

Great half-day tour to see the western part of the island.

Serge went out of his way to ensure that we were satisfied with the tour. There was a lot of fog that morning, so there was a slim possibility of being able to see any views at the top of the volcano. Serge took us up anyway to try to find a spot with a view. With our luck the fog cleared a bit and we were able to partially see Lago Verde and Lago Azul. Sadly we could not visualize the vibrant colours normally seen on clear sunny days. Serge made extra stops at Mosteiros (piscinas naturales and black sand beach) to make up for this. Overall it was a lovely day, and we covered a lot of ground for a half-day tour. I highly recommend this small-group tour. Solo-traveler friendly (no extra fees for solo travelers). Serge felt that his English could use a lot of improvement, but we all agreed that his English was perfect and that he did a great job!

Sete Cidades Hidden Views By Jeep
Melissa_P
, May 2022
I highly recommend this tour to Sete Cidades so you can see all the off road areas of the western part of the island. It was so much fun and worth traveling in the areas that tourist in rental cars and the buses don't have full access to. Eduardo was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable of the area, the back dirt roads, and the best places to see breathtaking views. He also shared historical stories about the area during our journey. Eduardo also shared tips on where we could stay if we wanted to stay in airbnb's in the valley area of Sete in the future. This tour was definitely a highlight of our trip in Sao Miguel and I would do it again without hesitation. Thank you Eduardo for showing us the beauty of the island!

One of the best tour options in Sao Miguel

This is such a great tour, which I 100% recommend. After visiting the Western side of the island by van previously, I decided I wanted to try the off the beaten path tour and let me say you will see totally different things, not to mention get the best of views of the island. Daniel, our tour guide, was amazing in sharing his knowledge of the island, as well as patiently showing us the secret top viewing spots - you won't get to see any crowds during this tour. The weather was also great, but I'm pretty sure even when overcast, this would be a great tour.

Had a great trip with Daniel, a super nice guide who knows all about the secrets of this beautiful island. We got off the beaten tracks and Daniel brought me to places you can hardly find without a local. I really enjoyed the jeep ride and these amzing view. I can definitely recommend this tour with Daniel!
