Gary is an outstanding tour operator who arranged tours for 78 cruise ship people with 11 guides and vehicles and 3 different itineraries to select. This is the second time we have done a similar set of tours with Gary, and fourth time using his company. Most of the groups felt that they had the best ever tour and guide.... More

We, 4 women from the US, hired Gary to take us around the Island. He was very attentive, very knowledgeable, and extremely accommodating. He made sure we were picked up at the airport on time and delivered to our hotel. He greeted us everyday with a warm smile and a full agenda. He made sure to track the weather as... More

We loved our tour with Gary and Azorean Tours! It was my husband and I and we booked a day tour a couple of months in advance of our visit using Gary's email address. Gary responded to us quickly and gave us all the info we needed to make a decision on which tour we wanted to do. We were... More

Although we had a hire car, only my partner was driving, so we opted for a day tour to allow us both to relax and enjoy some of what the island had to offer. Gary picked us up at our hotel and straight away we began our adventure of seeing and hearing all about the island. Despite the weather being... More

Hiring Gary is like hiring a tour guide, driver, meteorologist, geologist, historian, and friend for the day! We hired Gary for two full day tours and he was flexible and responsive from the beginning of our communications. We saw most everything there is to see in these two days and were awed at every stop. Gary was happy to cater... More

Gary is an excellent tour operator. Saw the whole island of San Miguel in two days. Tailored the tour to accommodate weather changes.

Our first all day tour with Gary included a tour of the island where we experienced beautiful views of fields and oceans. Gary is a very good driver and maneuvered steep winding roads in his very comfortable van. He stopped at specific sights so we could see the incredible views and have time to take photos. All through the excursion... More

I researched before I came with my 11 yr old grandson and were collected from the airport. Our flight was delayed by an hour but azorean tours were there waiting polite and professional. We stayed near villa Franco do campo and found ourselves very isolated. After several days by the pool and two unsuccessful attempts to go whale watching I... More

We (group of 4 adults) loved our tour with Gary! We booked a half-day tour about 2 months in advance. (Some people waited and were calling to book with him for that day while we were with him.) Gary was always quick to respond to my emails. He was really nice and informative. He also tried to keep us just... More
