The cost was very reasonable compared to everyone else in town and we had a wonderful day. We were a party of 8, so Antonio was able to customize the day both to the weather and... More

I hired the services of Antonio for a daily tour to Lagoa do Fogo and Furnas. It was a very nice journey through the island of San Miguel: Antonio is a very dedicated guide and knows a lot about the history and geography of this beautiful place, so colourful and special. Besides, he answers quickly and could be reached anytime.

Having decided we would 'do our own thing' in Ponta del Garda, we bumped into Antonio not far from the cruise terminal. Without being pushy he suggested different itineraries that we could consider for three hours. No regrets at all. Firstly Antonio spoke good English, was well dressed and his vehicle was clean and tidy. He drove with consideration and... More

Came out of the cruise terminal in Ponta Delgada hoping to get a cab to see the twin lakes. Met Antonio and he advised that with the overcast sky, the lakes would not be visible. We appreciated his advise and decided to do the island tour instead. Antonio first drove us to the tea factory, where we had some fresh... More

By luck my girlfriend and I met Antonio. He offered us a full day tour on the island at a great price. Antonio's tour included a trip to the volcanoes, mountains, lakes, beaches, tea plantation and several breathtaking sites on the island. If you're looking for a more specialized and private tour, this is the tour you'll want to do... More

Antonio is so kind and knowledgable that it would be impossible to go wrong with having his as a guide. We chose. The all day tour on our first full day on the island. It was great. All of us enjoyed it and hope to do more tours with him on our second tour of the island.

My husband and I visited Pont Delagada for 3 days in September 2105, and engaged Antonio's services for the 3 days we were there.
