I found Azorean Tours on Tripadvisor so I would like to add my review so others can also find them. My family of 3 booked over the internet and our first experiences were the easy and complete communication with Gary. He made recommendations and told us what to expect. We followed his instructions to get off the ship as quickly as possible. We were met right outside the ship exit with a sign with our name on it. Gary was there and confirmed that we were ok to tour with Carlos. We loaded into his very spacious and comfortable minivan and Carlos started by asking us questions and making suggestions. We immediately headed out of town and up to see the first lake. As we drove up to the lake he got to know us and what our idea of a great tour is. We made it to the first lake just as the fog was beginning to roll in. There was only one other car there and it was another of Gary's tours. There were many bus loads of ship tours that day and not once did we meet up with them. Gary and Carlos know the best way to avoid the crowds and see all the sites. We went to several mountain lakes, we tour a liquor factory, stopped for local made chocolates, walked thru a small park that had hot pools and steam pots as well as beautiful rain forest. We went to a small harbor town and had Portugese pastries. We went to a very beautiful church that had amazing views. As we came back into town we toured a tile factory where they hand make many pottery items. Carlos was really able to connect with our adult son and will be remembered for many many years. Thanks to him and Gary
