    Our business recently went to the Azores for a week long sales meeting and was fortunate enough to do a half day with the Azores Dream Tour. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE! Our tour guide Miguel was most accommodating, knowledgeable, and made for the ultimate experience. If you are ever in the Azores- specifically Sao Miguel – do yourself a favor and experience the island with these guys — it was EXCELLENT!!!

    Azores Thermals Had a great excursion to see the hot springs & thermal grounds in the Azores. We learned that restaurants cook some of their meals there and the country’s electrical grid is exclusively powered by thermal energy. Fasinating sights there.
