    We would like to thank the two fantastic tours that our guide Hélia and the Azores Dream Tours provided us on the 24th and 26th October, when we were on our honeymoon in S. Miguel island. It was simply incredible, from the follow-up before the service by Mr. Miguel Correia, to the realization of the tour by the guide Helia Castelo that was from far, one of the best guides that we had in our travels and as a guide that I am also I have to thank her for praising our work with her professionalism and good humor. We also want to thank the team’s proactivity in organizing our transfers when requested and the cordiality shown during our truly unforgettable stay. I recommend 200%

    The most perfect vacation! My friend and I had our trip planned until we met Miguel. He opened our eyes to all the great possibilities and then we spent 4 wonderful, interesting and exciting days with him and his brother Joao. The tour was EXCELLENT and we saw everything that we wanted to and much much more. The Island of St. Miguel is beautiful and full of things to do. Joao (with whom we spent most of our time) and Miguel could not be more accommodating and nice. Whatever we wanted to do, was done. A lot of patience and caring as well as interesting conversations about what life is like on this Island was a very special part of this tour. We went to Fire Lake, Furnas – which is a magical place, the pottery factory as well as the loveliest tea factory and tea room with the most gorgeous views of the shore and cliffs. We also went to Nordest which is not visited as often – don’t miss it. This is the eastern part of the island. Just spectacular, with all the viewpoints and serenity you could ever want. The town is lovely and so are the people living there. We even had them make arrangements for a wonderful dinner at a local restaurant in Lagoa. Great fish dinner with all the trimmings including a bottle of wine and incredible desserts (many of them). Bottom line, if you want to have a great time, both affordable ad professional as well as very personal, you must contact and make plans with Azores Dream Tours. They have the personal touch, which makes all the difference. We will be back, that’s for sure.

    Simply could not have been better We had two wonderful tours with Joao and so enjoyed ourselves. We were just the two of us and in the minibus and we went all around the island. We learnt so much from him about the history, the life, the traditions, the produce, and the hot springs. We had plenty of time and weren’t rushed at all.
    The next day he took us a tour of Sao Miguel, the convent, the daily fish and veg market, and the Botanic Garden. We loved it and he gave us the impression that he did too. Good at his job and very efficient and reasonably priced. Top Marks – well done.
