Excellent full day tour. Our tour guide Wilson Silvia was outstanding with his knowledge and presentation as we toured various sights and places in Sao Miguel, Azores. I highly recommend this tour and UTC for a great time.

You have about 30 minutes in sete cidades and in lagoa do fogo about an hour, you can even swim in the hot water lake if you want, there is a place to change, but you have to bring your own swimsuit.
