We were a group of 8 who were in Ponta Delgada for a 6 hour day tour off a cruise ship in December 2012 and utilised the services of Ricardo. He was early picking us up from the cruise terminal and our tour was a tour around the western half of the island, Number 3 on his list of tours. It was just great. Ricardo speaks excellent English and he took us to some wonderful and beautiful locations, some of which are nothing like I have ever seen before....just glorious and so picturesque. He knows the best locations and was great fun during the day...we had many laughs. I would highly recommend him and the tour was great value for the cost.

Ricardo was just the guide everybody wishes for. We were there on a cruise and weren't very experienced in booking our own Excursions. This was a revelation. We had a varied. interesting taste of  this beautiful island and hope to come back one day to see more and learn more with Ricardo

(May 2012) Really upset we had to leave and won't be able to go back until a couple more years. The best tour I have ever been on. Well worth ever penny spent.
Hopefully See you in 2014

I travelled to San Miguel on a very last minute vacation with no time to read and learn about the destination prior to arriving. I was really fortunate to connect with Amazing Tours soon after I arrived and spent several days exploring the stunning island. Ricardo was my tour guide and he created the very best experience with his knowledge, humour -  and patience with my questions and very amateur photography skills! San Miguel, the island and the people,  are simply amazing and unforgettable. Thanks Ricardo for making this such a fun and special journey.

I highly highly recommend Amazing Tours!

Our cruise ship was to arrive in the Azores on Nov 1, 2012 and I contacted Amazing Tours by email.  Ricardo answered my email and was very patient with all my questions.  We booked a van for 8 passengers.  The price was very reasonable.  When we arrived, Ricardo was waiting for us and it was no time at all until we were on our way.  The van was very clean and spacious.  Ricardo was an excellent tour guide explaining everything we saw and never tiriing of the many questions that were asked.  He was very patient and accommodating to all of us and kept us laughing with his sense of humour as we viewed the beauty of the island.  The tour and the most beautiful scenery of the island far surpassed our expectations for the day.  We would highly recommend Amazing Tours and Ricardo when you are visiting the Azores.  It WAS an AMAZING day!!!!

Vi hade en fantastisk tid på Sao Miguel i November, mycket tack vare vår utmärkte och charmige guide Ricardo, som visade oss öns många otroliga platser med hissnande utsikter och underbara bad i varma källor, dessutom fick vi prova på hästridning för första gången som var helt otroligt kul. Vi rekomenderar varmt att välja Amazing Tours och Ricardo om ni vill göra er resa oförglömlig

In Oct 2012 8 of us visited Ponta delgada for the day while the Epic was in port. Carlos was a fantastic driver and informative tour guide.  What beautiful scenery we saw! We visited a waterfall, Fire Lake, crater of Lagoa do Fogo, valley and lagoon of Furnas.  We saw the restaurant team take out our delicious meal from the calderas pit.  After lunch we walked through Furnas before taking the north road back to our ship.  A fantastic guide and tour!

We arrived on the Azores on the 2 October 2012 as part of a cruise and greeted by Ricardo. A well presented man who gave us an outstanding tour in a very clean Mercedes Mini Bus. Ricardo was a very good driver with a terrific sense of humour. He clearly was proud of his island that was truly stunning 'lovely'. He worked hard to provide us with a day to remember.

Had a fabulous time with our guide Carlos from Amazing Tours. We booked 3 tours with this company around Sao Miguel and saw some beautiful scenery. Carlos was very good and gave us a lot of information, he is very passionate about the island and he made our holiday even more memorable.

Ricardo took us around Sao Miguel Islands and I cant stress enough what a great experience it has been. Ricardo is one of the most genuine and entertaining  tour guides we have ever had! He is highly recommended to anyone who is looking to explore the Sao Miguel islands. He was very informative , knew the best places to go, very caring and overall one of the best tour guides we have ever had. We generally do not leave any feedback , but Ricardo deserves it. Thanks Ricardo!

We did two full day tours that were excellent. Ricardo was funny and relaxed and despite the unfortunate weather in parts, we saw great views. Carlos did our second tour and was also an excellent guide....very informative, laid back (and we had great weather!). We strongly recommend them for your island tours.

Many thanks to Ricardo for going to great efforts to organise a tour for 2 couples who were visiting the island on a cruise at the end of April.  We were able to add 2 more people to this on the day and Carlos was our guide.  The weather was good and we were able to see all the lovely views.  Carlos was a very entertaining and informative guide and as well as some leisurely drives through the lovely countryside, we were able to see a fiesta in a village and Carlos also gave us an impromptu tour of a supermarket so that we could buy some local wine and produce.  Thoroughly recommend this company if you are visiting the area.

Vi takker også for turen helt ude på landet.

The two tours we asked for, were all and more than we expected. Our Guide and driver, Carlos, was both knowledgeable and helpful, and knew places where we could go when others were closed(!)to us. We felt comfortable with his driving and enjoyed both our days out, getting to know the island and its secrets.
We were picked up at the time arranged and succeeded in beating the weather on both days.

In preparation for our recent visit to Ponta Delgada, I arranged a tour for 4 couples with Ricardo. In a word, FANTASTIC! Ricardo is a consummate host and is a great deal of fun to be with. He packed a lot of information and sightseeing into a day, and we came away feeling great about our cruise port visit to the Azores Islands. We highly recommend Amazing Tours!

Amazing Tours did a fantastic job for our group of twenty friends from the US. We were guided to the top sites of S. Miguel on 22-04-2012 and 24-04-2012 on a mini bus with an excellent driver and of course "Mister" Ricardo. Ricardo is very knowledgeable, personable and dedicated to providing an outstanding experience and service for all guests. He and Nelia are professional and were a big part of making this group's trip to the Acores truly "Amazing". Obrigado Ricardo.
