This was a cruise ship stop. We were interested in Sete Cidades Crater Lakes (Twin Lakes) approximately 3 1/2 to 4 hours for about 35,00 euros per person. We read about the weather being unpredictable. We explained to Gary we'd want to stay on the ship if it was raining (4 of us). Gary was booked that day (4000 passengers on board) but offered Carlos. We arranged, if Carlos didn't have another booking before the ship arrived and it wasn't raining, he'd be at the dock with our name. No commitment on either side (we'd get a driver at the dock if he wasn't there). As it turned out, the weather was fine, we were off the ship early, Gary stood with his sign, along with another couple he'd found. Perfect start to a perfect day! Carlos is college educated, speaks English well, is very pleasant, he took us to where we agreed and added in his favorite spot along the way. Beautiful! The tour stopped at a cute village where we found a free ATM (to pay Carlos). None of us were shoppers and there was no pressure to "wander around or shop". We took this tour October 2016 and I promised to write a review (unsolicited). Took me a while since we've been traveling nonstop since retirement 2 years ago. Highly recommend you ask for Carlos.
