One of the best experiences during our stay. Booking was quick and easy. Great website. The guide was super nice, layed back and really good to talk to. We were picked up at our hotel by a comfortable car prepared with everything needed for the tour. Even though it was Sunday we got a tour personally tailored to us. The dude was very knowledgeable about everything Pico and took us to some cool museums and to some really awesome local and somewhat secret destinations. We learned so much about culture, people and history of the island. They had a lunch in a local restaurant planned, and to finish the trip took us to a small and really good winery. ALL THE ENTRY FEES, FOOD, WINE AND CHEESE WERE INCLUDED IN THE PRICE! 10 out of 10! Me and my wife will be back in springtime and we will definitely check out the boat tour by Pico Me Up then.

Manuel was a great guide and sleeping at the top is amazing. The views and the sky full of stars are beautiful.

Great local guides, super friendly, not looking just for the money (contrary to other companies). Climbed to the top of the mountain with overnight stay in a group of 3 people plus the guide. Really worth the money for the amazing experience! Highly recommended!

Words are not enough to describe how happy we were. I'm Portuguese, but I'll nonetheless write this review in English so it's more readily available to anyone. My wife has little physical preparation and has asthma (absolutely under control, but still...), so when planning for the climb, we called various companies that promptly refused to take us. We heard from some friends about Pico Me Up, and how they were very customer friendly and caring, so we called them. Manuel was the one answering my call and quickly dismissed what was considered by other companies as an issue, and told us we'd go at a relaxed and enjoyable pace. We even had an issue with a cancelled flight which prevented us from going on the initially appointed date, a few days prior, and not even that deterred Pico Me Up from getting us to the top of Pico 💪 Manuel readily arranged for us to go the next day with an amazing guide and local, Carlos! Carlos not only went at a leisurely pace, but often gave valuable tips on breathing and correct posture/pacing. He also shared with us valuable insights about the Mountain, which he has a deep relationship with due to having been born at Pico. When reaching the crater, after a tough, but somewhat therapeutic 4 hour walk, we proceeded to watch what I consider to be the best sunset my wife and I ever witnessed, above the clouds. We then made camp for the night, under a spectacular clear night, gazing at the many starts we seldom get to see, and the Milky Way. We slept only a few hours, for no reason I can actually explain, but it was more than enough to energize us for the last 70 m climb to Piquinho, the literal highest point in Pico and Portugal! Over there, with steam coming out of under our feet (from the dormant volcano), we watched what was also easily the best, and most intense sunrise in our lives (you guessed it 😆). The descent was a time of contemplation, a time in which we could ponder on the beauty of our Planet, and the luck we had with the Company we had chosen. This was easily one of the most beautiful and interesting experiences in our lives, so thank you Pico Me Up, for helping the Mountain exalt it's already spectacular nature, by being so organic and caring in the way you treated us! Um abraço ao Carlos e ao Manuel!!! Henrique e Teresa
