Epic tour!! Sete Cidades is absolutely gorgeous!! Doing it on an ATV makes it much more accessible and fun!! The buffet was DELICIOUS!! Felipe was an awesome tour guide, taking pictures of you whenever you wanted and he was super knowledgeable about all the sights! Hopefully you get a sunny day so you can enjoy the views, regardless it’s still beautiful and a better experience than a can tour because of the ATV’s you can reach other areas that vans can’t so you get to experience more of the crater lakes! Definitely worth the money!

It was our favorite tour on our week trip! The views around Sete Cidades was unbelievable. I would say it was the best way to view this part of the city from above and below. We were lucky to have had great weather. Also, Felipe was very sweet. He would always offer to take photos and share insight about the Sao miguel. I would just recommend wearing a banana as we were covered in dirt after.

The overall experience was awesome. We got wet going up but weather changed once we got to the top! The views (scenery) are amazing, the trails going up and down are pretty cool. Our guide was full of knowledge and he shared a lot with us while being funny! The food (at 7 Cedades) was very good This all day is a must do!
