Reviews What people think about
Great mountain bike ride around the lake of Sete Cidades then kayaking on the lake. 3h flexible as desired.
This is exactly what we needed, with great equipment and affordable prices. Thank you!
We have done 5 trips with Futurismo and they have all been great. Our guide, Thomas, tweaked the agenda a little to suit the needs of our small group.
The full-day whale watching is not to be missed and the dolphin swimming was fantastic, even in rough seas.
Our other highlights were Terra Nostra gardens and hot bathing pools at Furnas and cycling and kayaking at Sete Cidades.
Wow fabulous is the only way to describe this trip – Our guide Gena was very informative and not afraid to try different things
We were on a half day long whale watching in Ponta Delgada and saw a lot of dolphins. We tried kayaking in Sete Cidades and they helped us to connect to the other team for canyoning.
Everything was easy going in every office where we meet them. The staff was very friendly and we got amazing experiences.
Thank you very much for everything!

I enjoyed particularly the fact that we could visit São Miguel on the jeep tour and got a whole different idea from our last trip. Knowledgeable information is given by the guide about the island specially concerning Azorean history and traditions. Great service and wonderful friendly guides!
