Over the last four years we have been on several cruises and have taken various tours at many locations. I will have to say we booked with the absolute best tour guide we have ever had, that being Josef Steininger. If you book a tour with someone other than Josef you will be getting less for your money. Josef goes... More

We visit Ponta Delgarda on a cruise but didn't want to join an organized excursion. We found this company on the main stretch of the port and although there were cheaper companies advertising in the nearby tourist information office we liked the way we were treated by the agent selling this company. We were right to go with Joseph! He... More

We were met by our tour guide, Thomas, promptly from our cruise ship. A couple on holiday from Belgium were already in the Mercedes Van. We were hoping to visit Sete Cidades, because of the weather it was decided to visit Lagoa Do Fogo instead. We were also taken to a ceramic factory and where a liquor was made from... More

We stumbled onto this excursion after our cruise ship docked here and we recognized that there was much to see beyond the foot traffic. We found Vanessa stationed at a booth onshore and visited with her and booked our tour of the Sete Cicades and North Coast. What a find! Josef picked us up in his van and immediately made... More

We visited Ponta Delgada and arrived by cruise ship (doing a trans-Atlantic trip). We hadn't booked any tour because they were limited. However once there we found Josef and it was the best tour of our entire trip. He has local knowledge and also strives to point out not just interesting facts but great picture opportunities. His knowledge of the... More

We paid our good money to go to the top of the crater on Sao Miguel on a totally rainy day! Ugh! It was a mess, with dense fog and rain and everything else. Regardless, our driver (Thomas) and other guide (whose name, I think, was Bruno), really made the most of it, and still managed to turn it into... More

We had the opportunity to take the guided tours from the Azoren Travel Experts and I must say, it was the best our choice related to the all tours on the island. Brilliant service and knowledge of the island itself provided us the amazing time spent with them. I would like to recommend this company to everybody who would like... More

We took this full day excursion about two weeks ago and our guide, Thomas R was great. He took us to some very nice miradoures, to the wonderful Lago do Canario, explaining things as we drove by and when we asked to have the afternoon programme altered because we had already been to Lagoa do Fogo, he contacted his office...

Cannot recommend this tour company highly enough. It makes a refreshing change to have a tour where the guide asks you what you want to do rather than a strict schedule which takes in tacky souvenir shops or cafes so the guide can get a free drink! It felt more like a private tour of the Furnas area even though... More

We booked a trip last minute for full day tour of Furnas and spa by night - the tour was excellent we learnt so much about Sao Miguel! Beautiful ending with a sunset on the north coast too! Josef was very knowledgable and also a very relaxed and fun guide. One of the best ways to see the island.
