My name is Rui and I am a Sao Miguel Island native. I love meeting people from other countries and making their visit to the Azores one they will never forget. My customers are not just clients to me – they are new friends, and as such they receive personalised service. I have many years of experience as a professional private driver, and you will find me an enthusiastic host with an excellent sense of humour. I can provide VIP services, Private Tours by Car and/or Minivan, and Airport Transfers.

It's like a 2 hour flight from Ponta Delgada to Lisbon so any boat ride would not be that efficient but agree with the above - there might be a cruise that does so.

Hi. Sorry, I have only just seen this. We spent 2 full days with Rui and we saw so much of the island with him. Well worth the money and he is a true gentleman.
