Really enjoyed this trip. We managed to learn so much about so many parts of Azores life whilst taking in the key sights. We had a lovely dinner and he took great photos which we really appreciated his better photography skills LOL. When the fog fell Eleuterio improvised to ensure we had a great day. I would highly recommend this tour. Eleuterio has a real passion for his island and knows and understands it at at granular level. Thanks

찾아오기 쉽지 않은 여기에서 가장 효율적인 일정을 준비해주었다. 하루의 여행코스에서 가장 인기있는 장소를 따라가면서도 그중에서 일반 대중에게 덜 알려진 아름다운 장소나 좋은 사진 포인트를 소개해줘서 좋았다. 최대한 시간을 활용하려 해준점이 인상적이다

This trip was a lifetime experience for me because not only the places was magical but the guide was really investing his time and knowledge to leave only the best memories and impression about the place. Everything was thoughtful and well cordinated - the route, time, access to magnificent places. We felt safe and sure that we are in a good hands and the guide will show only the worthy points. The lunch portions we had was too big for us but it is necessary to try their traditional dishes, just be really hungry before that! Big thanks to Eleuterio, he is an amazing guide!
