This Sete Cidades tour departs from Ponta Delgada and makes a number of stops en route to the Seven Cities volcanic complex. After stopping at Vista do Rei viewpoint for a few photos, you'll take full advantage of your jeep's capabilities and go off on a dirt road toward the main attraction. The route, which encircles the top of Sete Cidades, will also take you toward the namesake parish for more sightseeing.
Once you've admired the Church of St. Nicholas and other important points of interest, it's time for lunch at another nearby town; here, you'll stop for some traditional Portuguese cuisine to recharge before visiting a few more volcanic attractions and going for a thermal bath. Just when you think the tour is over and you're heading back to Ponta Delgada, you'll make one last stop at a peak to witness the area's natural beauty from above.

This trip was so worth the money. Our tour guide/driver was absolutely wonderful and took us to SO many places in one day that we could never have covered in a ship excursion. The negative is there is no way the four of us fit comfortably in the Jeep. The smallest person immediately hopped in the front seat leaving three larger individuals in the back. My bottom was not flat on the seat and the door was sticking in my side. They really shouldn’t put more than 3 people and the driver in a vehicle. The afternoon was great as the other couple they put us with had to leave to get to their ship at lunchtime. Beautiful island!
