The Island itself is SPECTACULAR!! This tour probably would have been pretty decent if it wasn't for the tour guide himself. The van had no air conditioner, no Wifi, no water. This tour was not organized well at all. The entire time was spent on detours because of a bike riding event on Island. Waiting in traffic being detoured in a van with no ac with plenty of humidity was not a great combination. Longest wait time 40 minutes on hot bus 5 minute at location 3 stops in all but super short. The Tour guide just kept asking us if we had any questions. No history about island was discussed. So sad but the eye candy of the island was enough.
Guide was 21 years old with no experience whatsoever. He did not tell us anything about the country and spent half his time on his cell phone even when he was driving. We travel a lot and this was the worst guided tour we ever had.
This was a great short tour our guide was excellent and took us everywhere we wanted and beyond. The weather didn't help much on this day and he took us to other spots until it cleared up so we could have the best experience. Açores is beautiful and this tour is great way to see it. 5*
