From Roger Currie (Canadian)
Hi Gary, on our recent trip to the Azores we took four tours by taxi. One with you, one with your father, Joe (both on San Miguel). One with Carlos Silva on Pico and one with Serafim Lima on Faial ( 965-033-803). We would recommend in our review to others for a day trip or 1/2 day trip either to people staying on the island or people coming ashore from their cruise ships. It is a wonderful way to see the islands particularly if you only have short stays. Also, a good way to find restaurants with your recommendations. We liked all of the places we ate, especially for the opportunity to try Azorean food.
Again, thank you for your efforts on our behalf and be assured that we will recommend you to anyone who will be visiting the Azores in the future. Thank you very much; you really added to our stay in the Azores and a hello to your Dad.

I wanted to thank you for hooking us up with your father for our tour on Tuesday. He was absolutely wonderful and we enjoyed
our time with him. He went above and beyond to accommodate all our crazy requests.
I am attaching a photo I took at the end of the day for you to give to him. Please extend our thanks to him as well!
Let us know if you ever come to the United States and want to visit in the Boston or Newport area!
From Tiit and Jan Tonuri (Australia)
Greetings from Australia following our return from our overseas holiday which included your Furnas/Fogo Crater Lake tour on 19 Sep. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and had the additional pleasure of meeting and talking with your Father. Please give him our regards.
You were recommended to us by a friend who had visited the Azores recently and we will certainly recommend you to others in turn.
You asked that we remind you to send us a copy of the photograph that you took at the lookout. This is the reminder.
Hope that all goes well with you and if the tourist season has finished that your taxi is keeping you busy

Thank you Gary for a wonderful tour in the Azores.
My husband and I were amazed by the beauty of your island. You gave us much information and the stops you included were very interesting. We both would highly recommend your tour for its value and your personal attributes as a tour guide.

From Michelle & Keith (Canadian)
Thanks Gary for the very enjoyable two days we spent with you touring around Sao Miguel. We learned a lot about the island and had a lot of fun as well. Even though the weather didn cooperate the way that you wanted we had a great time and loved the scenery. Your patience definitely paid off to get the Kings View. A great way to begin our Azores vacation.
Have a great year, maybe we\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ll see you again next time we come.
From Mike & Janet Hart (Canadian)
We would like to thank you for the fantastic tour of Sao Miguel. Your knowledge of the island and its history provided us with an experience well beyond expectation. You were also able to adapt and plan the day according to the changing weather (and the mood of our 3 year old son) so that we got the most out of our tour. I would highly recommend your tour to anyone visiting the island.
