Aerobus is the mini-bus transfer that UTC operate from the airport to the town centre hotels. It takes less than 10 minutes to reach the centre. Booking is easy and smoothly accomplished by visiting the UTC desk in the arrivals area. At €5 return (€7.50 if booked by your hotel), you are sure of a good deal. Bus was on-time... More

We enjoyed both of the full day tours. Like many others, we did them on consecutive days, so it was nice hanging with some of the same folks on the second day. These tours give you a really nice overview of the highlights of Sao Miguel and a couple of really good lunches. Wilson, our guide both days did a... More

This is an all day bus tour that includes lunch at a very nice restaurant. The tour started by stopping in several areas to pick up other guests. This was the off season so we weren't totally packed in and only have ~12 people with us. We did stop at the ceramics factory where you see women making local pottery... More

Excellent full day tour. Our tour guide Wilson Silvia was outstanding with his knowledge and presentation as we toured various sights and places in Sao Miguel, Azores. I highly recommend this tour and UTC for a great time.

Overall a good tour, the weather was the downer making it impossible to see the views at the end of the tour. The bus was very comfortable and the guide was excellent. The tour began with a visit to the Cerâmica Vieira in the city of Lagoa which is a traditional ceramics and pottery factory which shows set by set... More

Our guide was very good at her position. The bus came to our hotel just a few minutes late, no big deal. There were 21 on the bus, a good, manageable sized group. The crown jewel of the trip was the lunch at Paladares Da Quinta. Great food, service and not rushed...... The rest of the trip, I'd honestly give... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the trip we took to the fire and twin lakes. The tour guide was very friendly and informative, the coach was modern and air conditioned and the whole day was well worth the 50 Euros pp price. One of the best parts was the lunch, it was delicious and one of the nicest meals... More
