Just finished a trip to Terceira and Sāo Miguel, organized by Tiago from Kim Kim and I highly recommend it to anybody interested in doing a self-guided experience.

Tiago's expertise was critical to help us make the best of our trip. he was patient, knowledgeable and very accommodating to our group's needs (which were a lot since we had 5 people). He even created a WhatsApp group so we could stay connected and checked up on us often to make sure that we provided all the information we needed and that everything was going well during our trip.

Both islands were amazing and the hikes suggested by Tiago were unbelievable. We were lucky in that the weather cooperated a lot and we were able to do almost everything int he agenda that Tiago prepared. Some of the places we went to (like the volcanic rock pools in Terceira) we wouldn't have known about if it wasn't for Tiago's recommendations.

Our group traveled to the Azores in December (low season), which was great weather wise (not too cold), but I definitely want to go back in May (high season) to fully appreciate the beauty of the natural flowers that were not in bloom during our trip.

Hotel Review
Senhora da Rosa Tradition & Nature Hotel
Ponta Delgada

Great experience staying at Senhora da Rosa Tradition & Nature Hotel. The building is beautiful and the rooms were gorgeous. Everything was very unique and it felt very special. We ate at both restaurants within the hotel on different days and the food was fantastic. They also have a bar which made great cocktails. We all wanted to try some of the amazing treatments offered at their SPA, but because it was low season (we were there during Christmas) there wasn't a lot of availability when we arrived. Also, we had a pretty tight schedule so our options were limited.

Authenticity & Character
Location
The hotel is not located in the center of town, so a car is definitely needed, but it was less than a 10 minute drive to get to any place within the town of Ponta Delgada. I also liked that it was sort of removed from the main streets, which made the hotel and the vibe very peaceful.

I loved this canyoning experience at Azores. Because of the time of the year when went, they only had the short time options, but I definitely would have done the longer one if it was offered. Our guides, Pauhlo and Carolina were amazing. They were very patient with the group and made sure that everybody felt safe and comfortable. The location was incredible, with amazing vegetation. m.

I was actually in the Azores a few days after your departure for the New Year's! I truly love that place and although I've been there many times I just don't seem to get enough of it!!

I thought about sending you a picture just like the one you sent me the 5 of you in the pool at the Terra Nostra central pool, but unfortunately it was drizzling a bit so I couldn't take pictures! But I really thought about it!!

I wish you a great 2024 and please extend these greetings to the rest of the group!

Tiago was attentive and scheduled the trip according to our wants and wishes, he provided an itinerary and also suggested other things we could do if we had extra time or were interested. During our time in the Azores he circled back and checked in to see if everything was going well and if we needed anything else. Would absolutely recommend to anyone, because I do believe that working with a local provided us with a better insight of the place and we were given name of restaurants and/ or trails and sights worth visiting.

Absolutelly recommend the canyoning activity with Active Blueberry! We had 2 instructors with us, they were sure everyone was safe and felt secure to make the jumps, they accommodated to people who didn’t want to jump or were a little hesitant. Furthermore they were knowledgeable and very professional and we were very pleased and would do this activity again because of the lush and beautiful scenery.

This hotel is solely focused on relaxation and high quality service. We loved having 24 hr access to the thermal pool and botanical garden, which allowed us to use both without the crowds. The restaurant was also excellent - we at there for almost every meal and were never disappointed.

Natacha was just amazing. She took the time up front to understand what we were looking for and then modified the tour as appropriate. Given the unpredictable nature of the weather on Sao Miguel, she maximized our day to take advantage of the "breaks" in our overcast day, and we really got to know a lot about the culture of the Azores as well as the physical beauty.

Quality of Experience
The whole day was great
Food
We had lunch in a local restuarant in Sete Ciudades - all traditional Azorean food that was great.

We really hit it off with Natacha - she clearly loves Sao Miguel and showed us so many things.

Whale Watching in the Azores
Whale Watching in the Azores
São Miguel Island

Caveat for this review - our tour was eventually cancelled (hence the 3 stars). That said, I will definitely try a whale watching tour with this company if I return to Sao Miguel. The staff is very professional, clearly focused on conservation and learning about the animals. The briefing was very thorough and the focus on safety is also very clear. We suited up and actually went out of the marina into choppy water (we were told that up front). The swells were bigger than anticipated (8-10 ft - my estimate), and the captain very quickly turned us around for safety reasons.

Quality of Experience
Nothing in the companies control - the weather wasn't great on the day I went
Guides, Drivers and Staff
Clearly very knowledgeable and committed.
