What people are saying about Nordeste

Definitely book this tour! They picked us up in Lagoa at our hotel and the whole trip was amazing. We stopped at the best viewpoints, got to see where the cozido is boiled at the Furnas and had spent over an hour in the Terra Nostra Park where we got to swim in the hot springs. After that we had lunch at one of the most popular cozido restaurants in Furnas. Our tour guide was super friendly, very knowledgeable and very accommodating also. I am here on my honeymoon and have never been to the Azores and this was a PERFECT way to see so many places I might not otherwise see or be able to drive to. It is a long day but it is worth it!

This is an exceptional full day tour with breathtaking vistas, each seemingly more astonishing than the last. The hot springs were divine & the lookout points were ethereal. The Furnas stew & the lovely people we toured with were the icing on the cake. Five stars for our amazing tour guide Gonçalo!

We had Vero as our guide She was awesome she really knew the history and was very informative about the places we visited she made the trip fun and went out of her way to show us all the sites
