Sete Cidades Island Tour by Van
Perfect for travelers on a tight schedule, this half-day tour will introduce you to the famous Sete Cidades (Seven Cities) crater lake. The lake - which is actually a twin lake - connects two distinct water masses via a narrow strait. Do not leave the Azores until you've laid eyes on this beautiful sight. Book your Sete Cidades tour today.
Before you get the main attraction, you'll spend part of this tour at a pineapple plantation. Here, you'll learn about the fruit and the different stages of growth, all while enjoying a liqueur tasting. Once you're done here, you'll heard to a nearby peak -- Pico do Carvao - for some great photos; this vantage point overlooks the center of Sao Miguel Island and lets you see the different coasts.
More photo ops await at another viewpoint - Vista do Rei - where you'll finally get a good look at Sete Cidades' namesake lake. Relax and take it all in: It's quite the experience to witness this beauty up close. After admiring the landscape, you'll begin your return journey to Ponta Delgada - but not before stopping by another lake (Lagoa de Santiago) for one last photo op.

It's a "Must do" from Ponta Delgada. Starting from the very exact instructions on how to find the tour commencement, to the content of the tour. All was good. The scenery was the prime thing though. It was clear that all enjoyed the trip and the smaller size of the bus compared with that being offered by the cruise line was a bonus. Strongly recommend.

Our guide Ricardo did an excellent job showing us the beautiful sites on the island. We only had 6 folks on our trip and he personalized for us in a way that made us feel special. A bonus was the stop for tea/beer/etc about half way through our tour. Would definitely recommend and can't beat the price.
We had a really enjoyable and instructive tour. Tiago, our tour guide, was very pleasant and knowledgeable making the tour interesting. The island is very beautiful and well worth a visit
