    Our guide, Darcio, was not stop entertaining for the full tour. There were many historical stops, many eating stops and more information than you could process. And yet, he left you hungering for more. We cannot recommend this tour more highly. We are still smiling.

    Our tour was comprehensive, enjoyable and very informative. Darcio is a delightful guide! We learned so much from him about the history and landscape of Terceira. He went out of his way to make sure that our delicious lunch met our dietary needs, too.

    What a wonderful day. We added a food and wine supplement to our trip and ate so much we had to come back and take a 2 hour hike to the fortress at dusk. Starting with the delicious (and huge) traditional beef stew made in a clay pot, we moved to local wine and liquor tasting.
