Unveiling Ponta Delgada's Secrets
City Tour, Pineapple, Arts & Crafts MuseumSao Miguel island
You will be surrendered to the historic beauty of the city center thanks to the presentation of some of its most significant landmarks, monuments, and tales which will carry you to other eras, as a time machine.
After, a pilgrimage to the pineapple greenhouses, an ancient production that can work wonders amidst a sweet, heavy air, where the pulpy, aromatic fruits slowly grow.
At last, an encounter with the 1940’s and 1950’s in these islands, at the ethnographic workshop / Capelas’ Museum: an accurate reconstitution through pieces collected along decades transports us in time and in space.
Cultural & Historical approach
Our guide will tell you everything about this beautiful city.
The largest pineapple production areas are found south of São Miguel Island in whitewashed greenhouses.
Back in the time…
The museum of arts & crafts is not so known by tourists, but really worth it to better understand the Azores.

Reviews What people think about
The city tour was amazing though thanks to my guide Chiara!
I was admittedly expecting it to be relatively boring, but Chiara was such an amazing guide. She was able to show me around the best spots, stopped for ice cream, answer all my questions, and was just fun to be around. Great time, would highly recommend it!
Unmissable, spectacular, repeating, and worth every euro!
We did a few tours with them and all their guides were sharp, friendly, and knowledgeable. They have many tours to offer.
