We had a rental car on four islands with our Azores island hopping holiday (KRAS). All the cars were rented via Ilha Verde car rentals. On Pico, Faial and Terecira the service, speed and efficiency was perfect, BUT on Sao Miguel airport - Ponta Delgada we waited 3 hours before even getting the key to a car. The airport terminal...

Off the cruise liner and found FESTITOUR, comfortable people mover tour from dockside around the east side of the island. Run by Antonio M F Cabral, excellent guide, 3 hour trip with lots of input from Antonio. Recommended.

We took one of the many offered bus tours from Ponta Delgada to Lagaos to Ribiera Grande to Setes Cidades. An 8 hour adventure that included a delicious lunch and liquor tastings, hot springs and awesome views of volcanic crater lakes. I would definitely recommend the UTC bus. Maria, our guide, has more than 20 years of island experience and... More

Evaristo picked us up on the pier and took us to all the places on our itinerary. Blue and green lakes were just beautiful. We stopped in the village to get a cup of coffee and then he took us across the street to his friends house to show us fresh goat cheese that was just made. Evaristo offered to... More

Beautiful Scenery in Sao Miguel, Azores We visited Sao Miguel, Azores in September 2015 off the Royal Princess and had a fantastic day. The weather was spectacular, quite a contrast to the last times I was there when it was cloudy and rainy and hard to see much. We hired Eleuterio Valida who came highly recommended by my dear friends... More

We took the tour of the town that was based from the little trolley car along the waterfront. While many of the tours of the city are probably great, this one was a non-starter. The entire cart (trolley) rattled terribly hard on the cobblestone streets, making it very uncomfortable, and the English-based tour sound track quickly switched over to Portuguese... More

I have very bad experience with Ilha Verde rent Car. From my previous travel trips to other countries (especially islands) never had have a problem with this, because everybody knows, that car in the island is quite easy to scratch (especially on the mountains, stone roads, small streets in the city). I always expect that my insurance and insurance of... More

We went to Ponta Delgada, the city, not a boat tour. There are beautiful buildings and a lot of history in this city. We went to the Saturday market and had a chance to buy and eat one of the pineapples they are famous for. A very friendly place with beautiful buildings. The town gate is stunning and we loved...

We stopped off here whilst on a cruise. It was absolutely pouring with rain but we decided to go ashore and see what the little town was like. It's a charming place but would have been so much nicer in the sunshine. The rain was so bad we took refuge in the church, eventually giving up altogether and going back... More

We pre booked a taxi before leaving home and were pleasantly surprised when Jose Martins picked us up on our arrival. What a nice friendly gentleman who did everything he could to let us see the beauty of Sete Cidades but the fog was too thick at the top. We were still able to see a lot of the surrounding... More
