    Excelente Escolha Saimos de Ponta delgada por volta das 9 de manhã Rumo á Sete cidades, ficamos maravilhados com a Beleza Natural das Lagoas. O nosso guia sempre foi atencioso contando pormenores sobre a naturesa que rodeia a Ilha de São Miguel , Gostamos tanto que reservamos outra visita para o dia a seguir visitando a lagoa do fogo e Furnas fazendo paragens pelo caminho para dislumbrar a vista desta magnifica Ilha .Muitos atenciosos durante toda a viagem

    Excelente serviço Marquei um Tour à Lagoa das sete cidades para 7 pessoas com recolha no hotel. Foi um pouco em cima da hora e sinceramente escolhi um pouco pelo preço.
    O tour foi excelente, ao ritmo que pretendíamos….julgo um pouco adaptado aos clientes…viram o que preferíamos e ajustaram as paragens e tempos (por exemplo, tivemos uma paragem um pouco maior para umas cervejas e tremoços num local muito giro).
    O guia (Joao julgo eu…era o irmao do dono) tornou o tour mais interessante com varias historias engraçadas.
    Veiculo normal, serviço muito bom e sem pressões.
