Private tour guide Rui

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

Best guide experience ever! Rui is a native Azorean with intimate knowledge and love of his island culture. He's very friendly and fun and was eager to tailor the tour to our interests. His insight into the tourist patterns enabled us to beat the crowds and maximize our time and enjoyment of each location.
