Private tour guide Rui

Rui M.

Ribeira Grande - Pico da Pedra, 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

HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommended. Rui (Roy) took my family of 6 (all from New York) on a van tour of the Western side of Sao Miguel Island. It was an excellent tour and Rui is a superb tour guide. He uses a microphone so audibility is no issue whatsoever. Rui's English is excellent (despite what he may say) and he is extremely well-informed about all aspects of life on Sao Miguel. My family asked a wide array of questions and he answered each thoroughly and confidently. A very enjoyable experience indeed!
