    Our a Semi Private tour took us to breath taking views of the 7 volcanoes of the Azores. On the trip, you see the landscape from various altitudes while learning about the evolution of the island’s architecture. The Pineapple factory is a pleasant stop as is the local Chapel.

    João was a great guide. We saw a lot of the 'other' side of the island and got a good dose of geology, history, and ecology. Not a must-do, but a really-should-do.
