Here at Tour Azores we have assisted many in visiting the Azores as well as mainland Portugal and Madeira. Below are reviews sent in from our customers.
THANK YOU so much for arranging the perfect trip for us. Unbelievable that all SIX flights, 4 hotels, a ferry and FIVE TOURS went perfectly. Everybody was on time, interesting, and enjoyable. We had a wonderful time and we thank both you and Mr. Melo for your expertise and patience.

I wanted to thank you for planning our vacation for us. We had a wonderful time. The transfers and tour guides that you set up for us could not have been better. Everyone was on time for our pick-ups and they were some of the friendliest people we have met. The Azores are a beautiful place to visit and hopefully some of our friends will contact you in the future to plan their vacations.
Thank you again,
My wife and I have made a successful re-entry back to Hawaii after out tour of the Azores. We wanted to extend our heartfelt thanks to you for the satisfaction your company gave us during our travels.
Every transfer was timely; every island tour was beyond our expectation; all guides were extremely courteous and respectful; and except for two room locations at Graciosa Resort and Business Hotel (and a continuous, strange room noise that sounded like popping bubble wrap), and the Hotel das Flores, our hotel stays were enjoyable.
Breakfasts were well done, and it seemed each island tried to outdo the previous island on our tour lunches, as they seemed to get better and better, for the most part.
It was so nice to be able to tour the beautiful Azores and meet their beautiful inhabitants, and not worry about any details of the itinerary you provided.
We will pass along our experience to our friends, and will look forward to any possible tour relationship in the future. As far as that goes, we would like to take river cruise and tour the Douro Valley, River of Gold, next year. If you provide tours there, please let us know.
Finally, with all the complications that can happen, making a 15-day, 8-island tour work seamlessly is a great credit to Tour Azores.

We returned from our 10 day visit to the Azores earlier this week, and wanted you to know how much we appreciated all of the arrangements you made for us to make it such an extraordinarily interesting and enjoyable experience. From the moment we arrived in Ponta Delgada and were welcomed by our driver and taken to the Hotel Talisman, we knew we were in “good hands”. The hotel was excellent and the next morning, our tour guide, Joao Paiva, was there to take us to the full day tour to Furnas. Joao Paiva was not only a knowledgeable and interesting guide, but he also was sensitive to us and our needs. We liked him so much that we purchased a full day tour with him for the next day to Sete Cidades. He skillfully organized the tour to adapt to weather conditions so that we were able to see this beautiful area. He made our experience in Sao Miguel exceptional!
We had a smooth flight to Pico Island, and stayed comfortably at the Hotel Caravela in Madalena for 5 nights while we explored Pico, Faial, and Sao Jorge. Evelina Garcia in Pico, Velmano Carvao in Faia, Maria Do Livramento Dias in Sao Jorge helped us appreciate the history and culture as well as geology and beauty of the islands. Due to the weather conditions and the advice of our guide, we were not able enjoy the whale-watching trip. Instead we were invited to participate in the Festival of the Holy Spirit’s celebration and community dinner – we felt truly honored to be included!
Thank you for making this such a memorable trip for us!
With best wishes,

I just wanted to thank you for organizing such a fabulous trip for us.My husband and our friends, the Mc Mullens , were thrilled with it all and very impressed with the service and detail you provided us.
Unfortunately the fog interupted our trip a bit but thanks to you , Pedro met us at the airport in Terceira and gave us a nice tour with time for a stop for lunch, and then dropped us off in time for our flight home.
As last year, the tour guides were very good, and informative. Helena in Faial was our guide last year and she remembered me which was very nice. On Pico, there was a problem…apparently the tour company was overwhelmed with tourists that day and we were crowded on a small bus with 20 others who only spoke Portuguese. At our first stop I asked the guide if some accomodation could be made for us since we didnt speak the language and it was difficult trying to hear when she spoke to us in English. She apologized and made some calls, and within a 1/2 hour a taxi pulled up with an English speaking driver who was also an experienced tour guide of the island.It turned out to be a great day for us, as he was delightful.
Thank you again for everything. We hope this will not be our last trip to the azores, there’s still so much to see.
Best to you,
Pat & Bill Greenwood
