          Amazing!!
          We had the most fantastic time with Juca on our photo tour. He is a phenomenal tour and guide that makes you feel like friends. We saw the most incredible spots on the island and had so much fun along the way. The photos were incredible and definitely a highlight of our entire trip to the Azores. I would come back to the island just to work with Juca again!

          Amazing experience
          We enjoyed the underground and photo tours; the service was perfect and excellent!! Juca is friendly, and he has incredible knowledge about each fantastic place. He knows the places perfectly and explains each detail to be safe, enjoy nature, and take amazing photos. We can appreciate nature very well; Terceira is the most beautiful and unreal place.

          Unforgetable and joyful experience!
          We visited Terceira in October 2023 and did the Underground Expedition with Juca. It was an incredible experience for us! Besides visiting a cave and a volcano, we also went into a cave not open to the public. Juca took as to a traditional Azorean restaurant, where we had a great lunch and met very friendly locals. Juca is very passionate in his profession and he has a great humor. We could learn a lot about the history and the geology of caves and volcanoes and also about Terceira and the locals from him. Thank you for this unforgetable experience! :) When we visit Terceira again, we will definitely do the other Tours with Juca. Simon & Daniela

          Book Azores Expedition tours!
          First off, book directly with Azores Expeditions. Marisa is lovely to work with, quick to respond, warm and friendly. Juca met us at 8:50 for a 9 am tour. He also is friendly, professional, fun and very personable. His English is excellent although he speaks many other languages as well. Our private full day excursion was in one word: AWESOME. He is so knowledgeable about Terceira, he takes you around to all the best places on the island, including some that are unknown to most. He is a professional photographer - a perk I missed in the description - and he took great photos of us and even showed me how to take better pictures myself. He is cognizant of your wishes and your skill levels with hiking. If you have places you want to see, or specific things you want to do, he will take you, or you can leave the day in his very capable hands. The lunch he took us to was delicious and his dish recommendations were perfect. We had two amazing days and tours with Juca. He is priced very reasonably, and we would have paid more for what we got. Marisa and Juca truly made the start of our trip. Excellent company, excellent, interesting and knowledgeable guide, excellent tours. Thank you to Juca and Marisa!

          A perfect way to explore the island
          Since Terceira was the first island I was visiting, I wanted to relax a little extra and not have to drive. Luckily I found Marisa and Juca and was able to book a private tour with great email communication. Juca met me at my hotel promptly at 9am and firstly made sure to hear my goals for the day so he could take me on the optimal journey. He did not disappoint.I. I had a wonderful day that was made better by Juca’s kindness, anecdotes, and passion for delivering the very best of Terceira. Given he’s a photographer, he also took amazing pictures of me on my phone and helped coach me taking my own. I would recommend spending the day with Juca to anyone visiting the island. Honestly can’t say enough good things. A+

          Terceira in a day with Juca!
          Just got back from a brilliant whole day tour-9am till 6pm of Terceira Juca is friendly, funny and very knowledgeable about the island, its geography and history. He stopped often to show us the sights, and we had a delicious lunch in a lovely little restaurant full of local people. The day finished with an exciting trip into a volcano!. It was all amazing and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Juca.

          What an incredible time with Juca. He took me everywhere I wanted to see on the island and more! He was very knowledgeable on the history and geology on the island which made the tour even better! Highly recommend, it’s the best way to see the island and now I have some amazing pictures to match the memories!

          Incredible and unique experience - with amazing photos to remember it by!
          Two day customised tour combining Landscapes, Underground and Hiking. Incredible experience that far exceeded all my expectations. As a guide, Juca has got to be the best. He makes the extra effort to make the day perfect, the way you want it. Experienced Terceira in a unique way that I am sure I would not have gotten with anyone else. All the usual, amazing sights on the island plus more off the path treasures, like caves not open to the public and trails to dramatic cliffs, that were true highlights. Topping it all off are Juca's amazing photography skills using my phone camera to perfectly capture the moments - truly the best souvenir. Excited to use the tips I learnt to improve my photos for the rest of the trip. Marisa was also a pleasure to deal with - and extremely helpful with tips - during the planning and booking stages. Overall, a one of a kind experience that gets my highest tick of approval. I would consider a trip to Terceira incomplete if you don't book with Juca, Marisa and Azores Expeditions!!

          Wonderful tour and fantastic guide!
          Our family had an incredible tour with Juca! He has tremendous knowledge, enthusiasm, generosity and is a truly gifted photographer. The private tour surpassed our expectations - allowing us to experience private caves and other parts of the island we wouldn't have seen otherwise. And we had one of our best meals on the island. We will definitely book another adventure the next time we visit Terceira! Thank you so much, Juca and Marisa!

          The highlight of our trip
          Taking this your was the highlight of our trip across the Azores. Juca is passionate about the island, knows a ton about the geology of the area, and knows the best spots. You’d think this was a photography course and tour in one! We chose this as it was private, comprehensive, and hit the off-the-path spots. The place he chose for lunch was also a trip highlight - by far the best lunch we had all week. We had a lovely time, 50+ pictures gorgeous pictures, a fully belly, and a new friend! Can’t recommend this enough! Thank you Juca!

          Beautiful day with Juca
          What an amazing tour. From the friendliness of booking with Marisa to Juca’s great passion for and knowledge of Terceira, it was a truly great day. Juca’s enthusiasm, sense of humor and storytelling are unmatched, and he was what made made our visit to Terceira so memorable. His amazing photography was such a great and unexpected bonus - I can’t recommend Azores Expeditions more highly.

          A tour you want to go back
          That was an amazing experience! Juca was not only knowledgable while speaking about Azores, but also full of knowledge in biology, nature, geology. He has an amazing personality and I always felt safe while we were exploring publicly unavailable caves. Tour has started with caves exploration, then followed by visiting "must to see" spots and of course volcano. Juca knew what time is the best for visit, as we had entire volcano for ourselves only. The bonus, he is professional photographer and managed (I am the one who likes to stay behind the scene) to take wonderful pictures of me, and gave some tips and tricks on phone photography as well on drone photography (wonderful bonus)! Next time I am in Terceira, I am booking tour again! P.S. Lunch was amazing in a place Juca booked. So definitely you won't starve :)

        Juca was amazingly knowledgeable and has real insight into the earliest settlers of Terceira. He took me to some amazing archaeological locations including to to an incredible columbarium. His involvement in uncovering the history of the island shines through on the tour. He also stopped off at some of the beautiful viewpoints around the island and took some really great pics - he's an awesome photographer! You won't need to do another tour if you do this one - definitely recommend!

        The Archaeology tour is an amazing tour. Terceira has an amazing ancient history that you will not see if you do not book this tour. Juca is clearly so passionate about this aspect of the island and has so much information to share with you. Be prepared for some excellent photos that Juca can take on his camera; they are professional quality. Even if you think you aren't interested in archaeology, you will be blown away by the incredible sights you see. You will be one of the lucky few to know about the ancient past of this island, as this knowledge is hard to come by...just look at the Wikipedia page for terceira and you will see.

        A group of 6 of us recently took this tour with Juca. He took us to see places that are definitely off the beaten track! If you enjoy some moderate hiking in some very pretty areas even if archeology isn’t your bag, then this is still the tour for you. Booking this tour through their company was painless and fast. Marisa despite the time difference in Terceira was answering all my emails with questions immediately. Juca is a great photographer that can’t take a bad picture and using just our phones took some of the most memorable pictures of the entire trip. Thank you Juca for showing us your beautiful island!

        What a great experience! The archaeology tour was a great way to experience parts of the island you can't find on a map or on other apps. We saw lots of interesting features of the island that provides convincing evidence of pre-Portugese era inhabitants.
        Juca is clearly passionate and knowledgeable about the island and it's mysterious history. He was a wonderful guide and has uncovered many of the sites we were shown himself.
        The only problem with this experience is being left with more questions than answers!
        This is a great tour, don't pass it up!

        The Archeological tour is amazing. Juca took us off beaten path, where the lushness and richness of nature, and the mysterious structures belonging to the ancient times prior to the Azores discovery by Portuguese has spiked our imagination.
        The photos taken by Juca are unbelievable, and will sure preserve our memories of this great time!
        Juca has so much to share - his knowledge, his enthusiasm, professionalism, humor
        but above all his warmth and love to the Azores, to the land and it's story, and to people.
        When somebody like him is showing you around, the experience is unforgettable!

        This was a fantastic tour to so many places we would never, never have discovered on our own. Really thought provoking about pre-Portuguese activity on the island! There were great opportunities for photos. Juca took some of them for us and some of us and showed us some photo tricks too. He is really knowledgeable and says if he doesn’t know something so you have a lot of confidence in what he does say. He is very personable and funny, very helpful and flexible with accommodating our varied comfort levels. We highly recommend him and will book another tour the next time we’re here!

        Juca was a great guide. We not only spent the whole day looking at fascinating archeological and geological wonders, but he also took us for very delicious local food. On top of that, he showed us a few of his own discoveries in the island and made highly professional photos of each of us. Our group of 5 was very pleased of this tour and it is one of our top highlights from a 2 week trip in Azores.
