What people are saying about Furnas

It was a great tour. Our guide Philip did everything to make this day memorable for a long time, and of course the incredibly beautiful landscapes of Sao Miguel Island was the main highlight! Thank you for the most delicious lunch, for interesting stories and cool views! This is the day when you never cease to be surprised by nature and smile of everything you see and hear (regardless of the weather) :)

Wonderful experience! Our host Hugo was very informative but in a way that showed how proud he is of his home island. We tried the mineral baths and then went to lunch where he and the restaurant accommodated the dietary restrictions if one of the group. Every stop he filled our heads with knowledge and our eyes with beauty. Thank you from California ❤️

What a great way to see island!! Our guide Fernando was extremely knowledgeable and very very witty. Lunch of the traditional cozido was absolutely delicious. The botanical gardens are stunning and hot spring pools are fantastic.
