Full description
Drive off the usual tourist trail on a 3.5-hour jeep tour of the Sete Cidades (Seven Cities) region of São Miguel, part of the Azores, departing from Ponta Delgada. Traveling by 4WD jeep, experience the dramatic scenery of the volcanic crater up close, and see unique flora and fauna. You will drive to the mountain summit where you can look down on the impressive lakes of the caldera, one called Lagoa Azul for its blue water, and the other known as Lagoa Verde (Green Water). En route, take in other picturesque spots of São Miguel, including the church of São Nicolau. Enjoy stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean, volcanic cones, and stretches of green, from Vista do Rei, and drive through villages that have played a vital role in the story of the island.

Unfortunately it was a very foggy day and hard to see but that was not our drivers fault. He tried to find more things to show us at lower altitudes where it was not foggy. We would highly recommend them. Price was great too! They also accommodated us by picking us up at our ship.

We found Get Your Guide very helpful and responsive when making our booking. They used a local tour guide company, Greenzone Tours, and they were also excellent. Our ship was late arriving in port but they reassured us that the tour would go ahead. Our guide was Macio, he was friendly and very keen to tell us all about the island. We made some great stops which enabled us to take scenic pics. I would highly recommend Get Your Guide, who we’ve used before, and also Greenzone Tours.

Our tour with Sergio was fantastic. I can't recommend enough this half day jeep tour and would suggest a traveler request Sergio to be their guide. We saw some spectacular views and went to some off the path spots that were truly amazing. Sergio was knowledgeable, helpful, funny and friendly in his tour guide role. The tour itself is slightly bumpy (we are older and its a jeep) but worth it as the jeep goes where other vehicles can't. You will take the best and most iconic photos of the island from the high vantage points. This is an excellent choice of tour if you don't want to book an entire day riding around. We were back for lunch and the rest of the day ahead.
