Helio S.

agua de pau -lagoa, azores, Portugal

Hello, my name is Helio and I was born in 1980, in the archipelago of the Azores, on the island of São Miguel.

For 13 years I lived in Bermuda returning to the Azores in 1993. I all so studied on the island of bermuda at northlands high school and then returned with my parents to the island of sao miguel and all so studied portuguese , my parents own a restaurante on the island and I all so know a thing or two about
food and wine so you can probably call me a foodie I have a degree in Restaurant Management
and in Hospitality and Culinary Studies so feel free to ask about local culinary , drinks and wine.
The AZORES in know to be the (GREEN ISLAND)OR (THE HAWAII OF THE ATLANTIC) and thats why I love to hike and walk here on the island it is this network of footpaths that has been restored and made accessible to all so that we can enjoy the landscape of the Azores. Indeed, each of these footpaths goes through exceptionally beautiful areas, linking almost all of the corners of each of the island, both along the coastlines and in the uplands, a network of walks Classified by the Regional Government of the Azores, guaranteeing safety and reassurance to walkers I really love driver here on the island but hiking and walking is a activity that really for fills me and makes me get in touch with mother nature and if you like hiking and walk you are in the right spot.
I am an active licensed professional tour guide and pride myself on my ability to add personal touches to every tour I conduct. It is extremely important to me that my guests return home with experiences to remember.

A Recent Review of this guide

We had an absolutely fantastic tour with Helio. He met us where we docked and took us all over Sao Miguel. He was very knowledgeable When we went to the pineapple and tea plantation. Sadly weather was not great, but he still took us up to the top of the volcano and to try to show us the two lakes, but visibility was poor. We had a wonderful stew lunch cooked underground. Heading back he pointed out many points of interest. Helio was very outgoing and gave us a tour of a lifetime. It was a 5 star tour.
