Amazing experience. Manuel organized the tour super well and went the extra mile in order to accommodate our group. Special thanks to Sonia for leading our group up Mt Pico. You made our trip very special.
We had a beautiful sunset and sunrise. Manuel provided us with hot tea and coffee. I can't recommend it enough.

We were a small group of 7 people and the whole experience will be something I will never forget.

We had a really experienced guide who provided us a lot of hig quallity gear for the overnight climb, sleep and morning descend. He was prepared to always lend a hand and go beyond tne norm to help us as a group.

The conditions were quite demanding and even though it was raining through the night the tent was amazing and the sleeping bags warm.

The morning sunrise was an extraordinary site, well worth the climb.

Hiking Pico Mountain was simply incredible!
Also Very challenging physically and mentally. Thankfully our guide Manuel made it easier for us with his experience and knowledge.
The entire journey from beginning to end was surreal.

My husband and I did the overnight climb of Mount Pico. The experience was absolutely amazing from beginning to end. Amazing group and incredible instructors, Manuel and Richardo. We had a nice pace and they were very good at suiting the hike to the group, so that both those in good shape and those struggling had a nice trip. The gear was in really good condition and the general atmosphere was perfect. We can only recommend doing an overnight (night sky with the milky way was breathtaking).

Pico Me Up wine tour is fantastic, it’s the best tour through Pico. Our tour was tailor made for us, making us feel instantly at home and in-love with the unique and magnificent island of Pico. The wine was good, the places visited were amazing. David ensured that we felt welcome, and even introduced us to his beautiful family and welcomed us to his home - it’s like visiting friends on holiday.
We truly loved the experience and can’t wait to visit Pico again.

My fiance and I did the overnight Pico hike. Definitely a challenging hike, but also very well worth it! The views of sunset and sunrise above the clouds were amazing. We had a good group to climb with and the guides were great (Manuel was our lead).

I've constantly heard that climbing Pico was a must-do experience in the Azores, and I fully understand why. While the climb is relatively strenuous for unexperienced hikers / climbers, the guides are incredibly helpful and accommodating. My girlfriend and I booked the overnight climbing, and we're very happy we did so, as it was a memorable and one-of-a-kind experience.

I want to give due credit to our guides Tim and Manuel, who were remarkable and absolutely essential in having us make the most of this activity. Early on in the hike, my girlfriend felt the climb would be too strenuous on her, and Manuel understood and gladly walked us back. Before we made it back, he paused and said that, after observing us better, he felt the issue might simply have been that my girlfriend's backpack was too heavy. After splitting some of its heavier items in his own backpack and my own, he suggested for us to try doing a bit more of the hike upwards, and if after a particularly challenging part of it my girlfriend still felt she couldn't do it, he'd walk us all the way back. This made all the difference, and allowed us to eventually reach the top, so a big shout-out to Manuel for his care and attention with us.

The overnight climb also allowed us to truly make the most of being at the peak. We were unlucky on the way up, having had mostly foggy and cloudy views, but the sunrise was absolutely gorgeous, and we had enough time at the top of Piquinho to truly take in the view from all angles without many clouds obstructing our view.

The activity was a satisfying test of strength which rewarded us with spectacular views, and Manuel's additional surprise at the top made it all even better. Highly recommended!

My girlfriend and I did the hike and overnight sleeping in the volcanic mountain crater of Pico, with Manuel as our guide. The adventure of a lifetime epic experience! Manual was the best guide we have ever had, professional, fun, caring and compassionate with attention to all the details needed for an exceptional experience! Don’t book with anyone else, he is the best!

Our adventure to the top of Pico was led by Manuel. It was certainly a great adventure with new friends in our group. Our gear was basically ready to go and Manuel used his experience to help us even more. What to bring, what not to bring. We were on our way and our guides plan worked. You can do the hike without a guide but wow were we glad we had one. Our overnight was amazing. The sunset, the sunrise, the added treats and surprises were all awesome. Manuel certainly knew what he was doing and he got us up, and down, safely. If you are on the fence about a guide, use one, if you can't decide whether you want to do this as a day hike or an overnight, for sure go with the overnight. Pico Me Up was amazing. It was what we needed to make this strenuous hike enjoyable and memorable. I've been off of the mountain for over a week and I still can't stop thinking about this trip.
