Our first trip to sao miguel was last august and we had the good fortune of having pedro as our guide. Our family of four, parents and two teenagers, spent two days with pedro touring the island. He took us to places we never would have seen, comfortably and safely. In fact, the remainder of our stay was spent going back to our most favorite beaches, towns, and restaurants that pedro had shown us during the two day tour. The best part was that our kids really had fun. Pedro had my son try to milk a cow and help take out the cooking pot at the furnas. Pedro was very good company – it was very easy to be comfortable and relaxed with him. His spoken english is great and his personal information and knowledge of local history and culture even better.
Pedro also was willing to detour to the beautiful, little village of my grandfather, a memory that i will always treasure. It was a highlight of the trip for me.
When we return to sao miguel, we know we will call pedro to guide us. We couldn’t have been in better hands. We recommend his services enthusiastically and without hesitation.
