We do not only sell circuits … but a set of experiences. We are well aware that when it comes time to choose a tour, you have more options and they all claim to have and be “the best”, but what sets us apart from all the others?
This circuit lasts for 9 relaxing hours instead of the 8 hours practiced by most companies because we want and are required to give our customers the most complete set of experiences possible during their full day visit to Furnas, and that’s why we filled this tour even more by adding more extra stops like: Pópulo and Água D`alto beaches, Pisão Viewpoint, Ilheu Village Viewpoint, Castelo Branco, and of course, Capela do Holy Christ of Miracles. We want you to take time out of your vocabulary on this day… don’t worry, we have the right time to start, but not to end. We are proud to say that we have the best value / circuit practiced in the market, so even if it is cheaper, we equal the price.
