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.

However what makes them "super-stars"is the passion and love they have for their island,and the joy it brings them in being able to share this with their clients. The scenery of the island is beyond... More

This was a great experience. From the moment we arrived we were met with a big smile and a warm welcome. The car was beautiful and we felt like celebrities having 5 star treatment. Rui opened the car doors for us and when we left an attraction he would bring the car right to the entrance so we didn't have... More

This was my first visit to Sao Miguel, but I came with a friend who had visited before AND previously used Rui as his island guide. Rui provided not only exceptional knowledge of island history and attractions, but his personal tour was second to none. I would highly recommend Rui's private island tours to really enhance your visit when coming... More

Rui was a wonderful guide! He was waiting for us outside the gate when we arrived with a sign and brought us out to the car to start our tour immediately. I have been to this island many times but learned so much more on this trip. Rui knows so much about the history of the Azores and the people... More

All my family (two adults and two children) have been in Acores, Sao Miguel, for just three days at the beginning of September, and we had the real sensation to be in Paradise, not only for the amazing natural and geographic context, but also for the professionality and humanity of Rui Medeiros: for sure, he contributed a lot to appreciate...

Thanks to Rui Medeiros tours, we experienced the Azores in four days. Rui and Marco were very accommodating when we asked to see or do something that was not on the tour. We will be recommending Rui Medeiros Azores Tours to friends and family who visit Sao Miguel. Muito obrigada!

Rui is the best. He is a wonderful host that was born and raised on the island (Sao Miguel) and he has an intimate knowledge of its history. He quickly learns the tastes and expectations of his guests and modifies his tours accordingly. You will not find a better or more capable host.

We only had a few hours in Azores before our flight left, and Rui did a wonderful job constructing a tour that gave us a great sense of what the area we were in had to offer. He checked in with us often, wanting to make sure we were satisfied with what we were seeing. He has an excellent knowledge... More

Rui is a great guy. He knows English very well and all the points in St Miguel. We've been there twice and both time Rui has been a fun guy to be with and is a great tour guide and person. My family of four had a great time with him.
