You didn´t have the time to read your guidebook and want to see as much as possible of the island in a day? If you don´t want to rent a car, or just want to relax and stay away from having to navigate in a foreign place, why not let a local, like me or my father, do this for you? We know the island better than no other, and I will take you to all of our favorite places around: volcanos, thermal pools, waterfalls, lakes and breathtaking viewpoints. We will show and explain you this little natural paradise, we call home, in the way we ourselves like to see it and experience it.
Hi I´m an English and History teacher, and an island guide together with my daughter Monique (a Airbnb Super Host), for 5 years now, in the little paradise island of São Miguel, where we were also fortunate to be born and raised. You will understand why I say fortunate, many of the travelers that come here and stay or explore the island with us, fall easily in love and want to move here right away! My island bursts with amazing volcanic landscapes, thermal activity, luxurious fauna and flora, and endless shades of green. The weather plays a big role in the islander´s lives, since it´s always changing, we can have the 4 seasons in the same day, and it´s much easier to navigate through it with a help of a local. I know all of the island perks, and spots, and my passion is to show visitors the genuine way of living like an Azorean!
We will visit the famous lakes, volcano craters, thermal pools, waterfalls and many places where you will have amazing views over the island.
This experience has a maximum duration of 8 h, we advise to start it early in the morning. We go visit the island in a 4 people vehicle, a maximum of 3 people doing the experience. If this experience is not available on your chosen date, please ask me for availability.
