This is an all day bus tour that includes lunch at a very nice restaurant. The tour started by stopping in several areas to pick up other guests. This was the off season so we weren't totally packed in and only have ~12 people with us. We did stop at the ceramics factory where you see women making local pottery... More

Excellent full day tour. Our tour guide Wilson Silvia was outstanding with his knowledge and presentation as we toured various sights and places in Sao Miguel, Azores. I highly recommend this tour and UTC for a great time.

Overall a good tour, the weather was the downer making it impossible to see the views at the end of the tour. The bus was very comfortable and the guide was excellent. The tour began with a visit to the Cerâmica Vieira in the city of Lagoa which is a traditional ceramics and pottery factory which shows set by set... More

Our guide was very good at her position. The bus came to our hotel just a few minutes late, no big deal. There were 21 on the bus, a good, manageable sized group. The crown jewel of the trip was the lunch at Paladares Da Quinta. Great food, service and not rushed...... The rest of the trip, I'd honestly give... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the trip we took to the fire and twin lakes. The tour guide was very friendly and informative, the coach was modern and air conditioned and the whole day was well worth the 50 Euros pp price. One of the best parts was the lunch, it was delicious and one of the nicest meals... More

We took the two tours offered by UTC with our group of 15 people. We enjoyed all of the locations we stopped at. Wilson provided very good information about the island including a great story about why the Sete Cidades lakes are two colours. It was very hot when we toured and on the first day, we had a bus...

We went on a full day tour to Sete Cidades with Maria. Had a lovely time (despite the weather) and went back to the UTC office to pay by credit card. For some reason the payment (€99.98 for two of us) went through twice. This was not refunded until the following day but as the exchange rate had changed we... More

Great tour of the part of Sao Miguel island with UTC. My wife and I were lucky enough to be the only people aboard, so the tour with Wilson was private, and we couldn't be happier about it. Great information, stunning sites, amazing lunch, all included in the price. We plan to come back, and take another tour with this... More
