Filipe was a knowledgeable guide and very safe driver. His English was excellent and we visited some lovely places with spectacular scenery, although the weather didn't always collaborate! Lunch was also enjoyable, with plenty of options. Highly recommend!

It was an interesting tour but it felt a bit too long for the content, the most important points could be covered in half a day. Bear in mind that it is a bit weather dependent (as most open air tours in the Azores are).
