Pedro was fantastic. He loves his island and so did we. He is funny and so knowledgeable. We were a group of 6 and he customized our tour so we could see what we wanted and also provided great input as to what he thought we should see. We just loved our time with him. We loved Ponta Delgada, it was amazingly beautiful and we had such a great experience thanks to Pedro. I highly recommend him.

Last year we booked this tour but didn't get to take it as our cruise ship couldn't dock because of winds and waves. We were disappointed, but booked it again on this cruise. We were not disappointed. Our guide met us at the cruise terminal with no hiccups. We had a delightful time and we were impressed by his knowledge of the history of the area and topography. He was obviously proud of this beautiful island. Our tour of the Cete Cidades volcano area and lakes was a highlight of our cruise.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your words. I'm very glad, that your stop here was your highlight of your cruise. That's why my job is so enjoyable. Anything you may need on the future please contact me. Kind regards. Pedro R.
Azores are a beautiful corner of the world! Our guide was waiting with a sign (we were one of the first off the ship). He adjusted to our interests for sites, food and time. So glad we went with a private guide to the tea factory, who explained the processes involved. Was interesting to see food cooked in the heat of volcano and family restaurant was just how we wanted to enjoy traditional food. Private guide is a great way to avoid crowds and get a flavour of the country.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joanne, Thank you very much for your words. Me and Hugo appreciate a lot that you enjoy your tour with us. Thank you very mech and I hope to see you again on my island soon. Kind regards. Pedro R.

Darlene FoggUnited States
A great day! a nice overview of the island. My 8 and 11 year old daughters had a fabulous time and still talk about the lunch that was cooked at the Furnas. He provided so much information about the sites and the surrounding area. We saw much more than we would have taking the ship's excursion. I highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Darlene, Thank you very much for choosing me for your tour on my amazing island. I-m very happy that you enjoy the tour and specially my island. Anything you may need on the future please contact me. Sincerely yours. Pedro R.
My husband and I both had a great experience. He really enjoyed the tour and the sites. I really enjoyed the friendly your guide. The flexibility to spend more time where ever we wanted was great. Beautiful scenery and very relaxed pace!

This was a beautiful tour. Pedro picked us up in his 4X4 vehicle early in the morning and provided with a full day of spectacular sights. He is a great guide and speaks great English. The whole island is just filled with beauty everywhere you look. Sete Cidades is truly just amazing. The 5 lakes and the mountains, as well as the beautiful flowers and trees made this just an incredibly beautiful day. This island at times reminded us most of Ireland as it is equally as green and beautiful.
Merdene HessUnited States
Pedro gave us an outstanding back road jeep tour. He is very knowledgeable and I am sure that you would be more than pleased with any of his tours. The scenery is fabulous and he took us to lunch for a great buffet. The 8 hour tour went by much too fast.
5 out of 5 for Pedro who gave us a tour of his island in the Azores. He was very interested in the history and answered all our questions. We had a cloudy day so were unable to see the King's View but he even tried twice to give us a chance. Thank you Pedro.
Gary KoenigUnited States
Pedro was a great tour guide. Unfortunately, we registered as four guests and when we changed to six guests, we noticed on the web-site that the vehicle would seat six, so we did not notify Pedro of the change. As a result, he brought a vehicle comfortable for four, but not for six. The vehicle was old, and the windows didn't work well. But his tour and explanations were great and I would recommend this tour to others. Just please confirm your passenger count.
Rosanne SharpeUnited States
Our tour was beyond our expectations. Pedro was extremely knowledgeable in all areas, ex. history, geography, and politics. He was very cordial. We loved the beautiful scenery. He clearly loves his beautiful country. His English was excellent. The six of us ( three couples) all had a fabulous day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rosanne, Thank you for your kind words. I appreciate a lot and I'm very happy that you enjoy everything. Just doing what I like to do and I have enjoyed very much to meet you and all you friends. Hope to see you soon again on my beautiful island. All the best for all of you. Pedro R.
Raymond SouzaUnited States
Pedro was great, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. He created a special itinerary for us to see the village where my family originated. He was great!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ray for your words. I really hope that you enjoy my island and hope to see you again here soon. You have many places to explore. All the best for you and your friends.

Angie PerezUnited States
Pedro is an excellent tour guide. The Sete Cidades tour is amazing. We truly enjoyed the scenery of the lakes, the green surroundings, the trees and plants throughout the trip. Pedro is also very accomodating. We saw a local fruit that we are familiar with and we requested him to take us to the market on our way back to the ship. Thank you Pedro, besides the very interesting and paradise look of your country, also enjoyed the friendly people we've met during our tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Angie for your kind words. Really hope you enjoy my island and the tour and hope to see you again here on my beautiful island. Regards, Pedro.
Ann F.United States
This was a great tour! Pedro is an excellent guide and a really nice person. He was very knowlegible and interesting and always willing to slow down so I could take more pictures! The ride around the lakes on the dirt road was fantastic! Sao Miguel is a very beautiful place and, if we return, we would love to have Pedro show us more!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words about me and my island, hope to see you again to visit the rest of the island. Sincerely yours, Pedro.
Adrianne McCrawUnited States
Pedro was an excellent tour guide. He spoke great English so there wasn't a language barrier. He knew a lot about the island and took us to some of the most beautiful places. He even helped us with our Portuguese and told us about more amazing places to visit on the island after our tour. We will hire Pedro again when we return.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Adrianne. I'm very happy that you enjoy my tour and all the things here on my island. Anything you need please contact us. Best regards. Pedro
