    “This was our best day of the trip yet!!!!!”- My Wife John did an excellent job all day long! He showed us things on the island we never would have discovered on our own, including local favorite restaurants and sights! The tour was sprinkled with his own childhood experiences from growing up on the island as well, which made the tour all the more special. My wife and I would recommend this tour to anyone!

  2. Dennis Goriachev

    Great tours and guides! Did not think it was possible to do and see so much in one day!!

  3. Michael K

    Full Island Tour We had a short stop in the Azores for 2 days en route to Spain and wanted an efficient overview of Sao Miguel, the main island. Our guide Hélia was very professional, prompt and friendly. We researched areas we wanted to see and she was able to accommodate all that we wanted. We even had time for a stop to enjoy thermal baths as well as a beautiful seaside lunch. I highly recommend Azore Dream Tours

    Great tour!! Did not think it was possible to do and see so much in one day! Even better was that the guide explained options for my next day as I had rented a car to explore, and it could not have gone any better! would recommend for anyone and everyone visiting Sao Miguel.

    All In One Tour Was on the tour back in June. I was the only one making it really private. The tour took me around the entire island, I saw some pretty amazing lakes and had some of the best views. For lunch they take you to Tony’s to eat authentic Azorean food. My tour guide was really funny and we had some pretty good laughs all the way. I also took amazing pictures. It wasn’t a problem asking to stop (if he could of course) if I saw something I wanted to take a picture of. He also knew all the best spots for pictures. He also took me to a bar and I had some pretty sweet pineapple liquor. If your schedule is tight then I definitely recommend this tour as it takes you to all the major spots and the guides definitely know their stuff. I really couldn’t have asked for a better day.

    The best guide in Ponta Delgada! Miguel Correia is the best local guide in Ponta Delgada! He’s very professional, always arrives on time, very helpfull and he knows everything there is to know about the island! We did the 4-in-1 tour (the whole island) in one day and it was amazing! We were lucky with the weather, the only sunny day in weeks! We will go back in the Summer and of course Miguel will be our guide!
