What people are saying about Ribeira Grande

What a good day we have spent with RUI!! He is an excellent guide, he has taken us to see a lot of places adapting the plan to the weather at all times and to what we wanted. It's nice to be with people like that! You can tell he loves his job and knows a lot. I recommend it 100%.

Amazing experience! Pre warning that you do have to drive on the public streets. My partner had never been on a quad bike before and found it a little scary at first but managed and it was worth it! Our guide was amazing, reassuring and very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend

We had a great time with Hugo! He was a safe and responsible driver and shared a lot about the Azores, showing us hidden gems around the island we never would have found ourselves. Thanks Hugo!
