    Stop: 8 hours
    You no longer have to go to Africa to go on a safari. The trip is made comfortably in jeeps suitably equipped for the purpose and able to take you to places you did not even imagine existed. we personalize your the tour to your needs and likes, It is intended for those who want to know unusual perspectives and scenarios. Routes on secondary roads, which are not part of the usual tourist itineraries, are favored. They are narrow, beaten paths and used mostly by farmers. They are lined either by blue hydrangeas( Hortenses), large trees or rough walls of basaltic stone, which cut the green pastures. They lead to breathtaking views. Take the time to stop along the way, step out of the jeep and take a closer look at all the magical nature that surrounds you. Adventure yourself through the interior of the Island, breathtaking views. Outdoor lunch (traditional food, Portuguese wine), continuation of the tour with visit to some hidden spots.

If you only plan one tour/activity... this is the one.
Feb 2020
My wife and I usually try to avoid the large bus/van tours when we travel - and where possible, this is exactly the kind of excursion we prefer. Based solely on the reviews here, we booked with Antonio for the day after we arrived on Terceira.

He picked us up at the hotel, and within minutes, conversation was flowing as if we were old friends. Antonio is a native Azorean and fully versed in every topic you might be interested in: history, politics, food/restaurants, customs, people, (gossip!). As we drove throughout the entire island, he seamlessly wove relevant facts and personal anecdotes about each location that we passed through or stopped. The scenery is just breathtaking, and I was shocked later that night how many pictures I had taken. Antonio also took wonderful photos of his own during the entire tour and sent them to us afterwards.

Lunch was spectacular. A personalized casual bbq was prepared at a quiet and beautiful campsite that was completely blanketed in soft moss. We enjoyed alcatra (a traditional Terceiran beef recipe), various meats (chorizo, blood sausage), pasta, salad, beer, wine, and moonshine. Not to mention that Antonio and Sara were perfect lunch partners to sit with - informative, entertaining, and personable.

This tour will enable you to see parts of the island that you simply cannot match in a less capable vehicle. One of the many highlights was a quick descent on foot to an unmarked underground cave! As evidenced by the other kinds of rugged activities offered by Pro Island Tour, their Land Rover Defenders allow you to explore the higher elevations of the island's interior - climbing rocky trails and traversing the unpaved lanes scattered among the volcanic-walled fields. And despite the terrain, you'll enjoy an extremely comfortable ride thanks to the athletic but forgiving suspension. Later in the week, we rented a car and drove the island on our own - which was extremely enjoyable and relaxing in its own way. But it made us realize how much of the island we would have missed were it not for this tour.

All visitors to the island owe it to themselves to include this activity during their stay. As others have stated, do it early - and you'll feel completely prepared and knowledgeable about the rest of your visit on Terceira. Thank you again to Antonio, Sara, and the rest of Pro Island Tour for this amazing memory. We'll definitely be back some day and hoping to see you again.

Full Island Tour - Our Favorite Activity
We had an amazing tour with Antonio!! We scheduled our tour for our first full day on the island which was perfect because it enabled us to get a good feel for the island. Plus Antonio gave us numerous recommendations and ideas for places to see, restaurants to try, and things to do for the remainder of our stay - all of which were excellent, Antonio literally brought us to all the main sites that we wanted to see and then some. We were actually surprised by how much ground we covered during our tour and repeatedly passed areas that we had visited with Antonio that we recognized throughout the duration of our trip. The tour felt totally personalized for our small group which was great. My mom, who is usually quite nervous driving on dirt roads in unknown areas to her, felt completely comfortable and safe....which is a real compliment to our tour guide. We had an amazing local lunch at a park that literally looked out of a fairytale. An additional surprise was that our guide took pictures of us at each stop and sent them to us after our tour. The pictures were amazing and definitely a nice way to remember our favorite activity of the week. Thanks, Deanna, Pat, Eric, and Mike!!!

Not your average touristy tour
I don’t even know where to start except to say my husband and I spent 2 wonderful days touring with Proisland tours exploring “off the beaten path” Terceira. We signed on for the full day 4X4 tour and despite a rocky start (half way up a mountain we got called back to Angra to pick up 2 other passengers) we ended up having an absolutely wonderful day. In fact we enjoyed it so much we signed up for the wines and moonshine full day tour also.
After reading so many good things about António in other reviews we were afraid we might end up with another tour guide. To our delight António came to pick us up only to find out that the father and son team of proisland tours are both Antonio’s. We spent 2 full days exploring and learning aboutTerceira. The scenery was amazing, the weather changeable( layer up in the off season) and there were no crowds to contend with. It was obvious that the Antonios were proud and happy to share their island and culture. Lunch was prepared/grilled at a lovely park. There was a huge array of food. The food was tasty and António senior served the best Alcatra (local stew) we had the whole time we were there.
We highly recommend this tour company if you are looking for something special and not the usual touristy bus tour.

Best day trip I've taken anywhere in the world, thanks to guide/owner António!! A Must-do tour when in the Azores!
Apr 2019
António is an amazing guide whose passion for Terceira is genuine! Had I not gone on tour with him, I would have missed so much - not only the incredible nature but also the warm culture of the Azoreans. I've been on a lot of tours all over the world, and this experience remains at the top of the list. I wasn't expecting to hike a volcano, but with António's encouragement (and some Portuguese red wine with our freshly-grilled lunch), I stepped outside my comfort zone and made it to the top! If you do one thing on the island, go on this tour!!!

Nice drive around the island
Aug 2019 • Family
Nice trip, the guide was kind but didn't explain anithing about the Island. Good driver but not very talkative. They will bring you to have a nice bath in natural pools. Then have a home made lunch with the other guests.

Exceptional one day tour
Jul 2019 • Couples
Yesterday we took a one day tour "in and around Terceira" with Antonio, the best guide you could wish for. Friendly and knowledgeable, with a great sense of humour, Antonio made us feel instantly welcome. As advertised, he showed us sights that were well and truly off the tourist trail as well as some essential visitor attractions. We felt as though we had really covered the island and experienced the full range of landscapes. The highlight though, must be the lunch, prepared by Antonio and his son outside at a picnic area near Serreta. A most convivial experience as we joined up with the wine and moonshine tour group. The food was superb and they went the extra mile, preparing fish for us specially as we don't eat meat, and even bringing out some fizz for us once they learned that we were on honeymoon. If you want a personally tailored tour, this is the one to book, and well worth the money. We will have great memories of Terceira thanks to Antonio and this tour.

Terceira Tour
Jul 2019 • Solo
i had the most awesome day riding around the island with António of Pro Island Tours. I was solo and António was very attentive to my making pictures. Every time i raised my camera, he’d slow down and would even stop when asked.
He was very knowledgeable about the plants and trees that we saw and made the experience richer. He even gave me tips on places to go after the tour.Well worth it.
Can’t imagine the island without this tour.

Best Personal Tour
Jul 2019 • Friends
Hands down one of the best tours I’ve ever done from pick up to drop off. António is amazing and even called a friend to get us a boat tour for the next day when we mentioned the sailing trip we wanted to do was full. He was also our personal photographer as well as tour guide. Lunch was delicious and felt like we were eating with old friends. This is the BEST way to see Terceira Island.

Wonderful experience
Jul 2019 • Solo
This was by far the best thing I did on the island. Patricia was amazing and so informative. She was also funny and took me to lovely places with stunning views. Since I was the only one on the tour, she really tried to cater to what I wanted to do and I loved everything. The lunch was amazing, especially the Alcatra and fresh caught fish. I can’t recommend this experience enough.
