About Us


Since the '70s, the de Melo family has been selling travel to Portugal. Three generations back up our highest standards of quality, integrity, and value in travel.

Our current President, Edward A. de Melo III, is determined not only to maintain this but to exceed in it. Our company is committed to providing approachable rates to our clients without compromising in any way the quality of our service.

Tour Azores is a Tour Operator based in the US and Portugal.

We make sure to balance sightseeing, free time and optional activities, as well as creating unique experiences. We stand out in our FIT service, taking care of every detail so you can enjoy a relaxing vacation.

We offer customized packages in order to provide our customers with their ideal vacation at an unbeatable price.


We are very proud of the hotels that we chose. Each hotel chosen has been individually selected and inspected to ensure that it will meet your standards. All of our hotels are centrally located and are 4 and 5-star Hotels. We have close relationships and constant communication with each hotel manager and they are aware of the importance of every Tour Azores guest.

Meal Service:

We know and value the importance of a good meal, and more so of an authentic meal experience when you are traveling. This is why we include on our tours a hearty daily buffet breakfast with bacon, eggs, fruits, yogurts, cheeses, and local products, not the standard continental fare that you find on lesser tours.

Dinners are in renowned local restaurants and include traditional dishes, prepared with fresh local produce and some of them include traditional folkloric music, shows or dance performances to get the utmost experience.


We provide you with a full balanced itinerary of sightseeing, and with some free days to spend at your leisure. We ensure that you enjoy the sights in comfort and that you travel in air-conditioned buses from one point to another.

Optional activities and experiences:

If you would like to add an experience or a tour on one of your leisure days, we have several options for you. You can find a full listing of this by area clicking on our experiences menu.
