Rui M.

Ribeira Grande, Azores, Portugal

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 consider myself a very lucky person for living on this beautiful island/archipelago.

A Recent Review of this guide

Rui is an excellent guide, full of local knowledge & infomation. He's personable with an engaging manner and speaks excellent English. During the trip to Sete Cidades, Rui pointed out various secondary sights and told us some of the history of the Azores. The outlook offered a fantastic view of the blue-green lake. Next was a side trip to Sete Cidades to see the church and visit a cafe. Finally we went to a pineapple greenhouse plantation. A first class tour by a first class guide.
