Start with a pick-up/ drop-off at the cruise ship terminal. Time options include 09:00 or 13:00. For the ships arriving after 09:00, your tour will start 1-hour after disembarking. Starting from the cruise ship terminal where someone will be waiting for you holding a sign with your name written on it, following the southern coast, you will leave Ponta Delgada for the Pico do Carvao viewpoint where you will be able to admire the north and south coasts for some breathtaking scenery. Continue to the Canary Lake viewpoint and have your first view of the crater of the Seven Cities volcano and the majestic mountains that form the crater rim. Towards the viewpoint of the King's view, perhaps the most famous viewpoint in Azores to admire the blue and green lake. Drive into the interior of the volcano, admiring the winding road that leads to the small pond of Santiago. Enjoy a brief stop at the parish of the Seven Cities to breathe in the fresh air of a parish that will give you a sense of peace and then it will be time to see the interior of this magnificent volcano. Drive back contemplating the magnificent road surrounded by hydrangeas, plantains, azaleas and other flowers so characteristic of the Azores.
