If you are looking to tour the island of sao miguel in the azores, i highly recommend pedro´s services. My girlfriend and i toured parts of sao miguel (sete cidades, mosteiros, bretanha, capelas, ribeira grande and lagoa do fogo, a pineapple planctation, among others) in pedro´s company in mid august 2011.
Pedro is a professional, punctual and courteous driver. Pedro´s father and grandfather were both in the taxi trade; therefore, this is a continuation of a family tradition. Pedro is fully fluent in english and speaks some french. He took the time to visit some of the most beautiful parts of sao miguel.
We both enjoyed pedro´s driving style and his sense of humour, and most of all, his passion and knowledge of the green island, sao miguel.
Thank you pedro,
