    One of the interesting initial stops are at the Azorean pineapple plantations where your tour guide will explain all the stages and to try a free sample of the local pineapple liquor.

    After this the group will go uphill to the large western volcano Sete Cidades and make a stop on Pico do Carvão viewpoint so you can enjoy one of the best views over the island.

    From there you have some amazing sceneries within the Sete Cidades caldera and you can see the most beautiful lakes of it (Rasa lake, Santiago lake and the twin blue and green lakes).

    Following next, your tour guide takes the group to Vista do Rei viewpoint, from where you can admire the most famous perspective over the twin lakes of Sete Cidades and it's population.

    Next the group heads down to the Sete Cidades settlement next to the twin lakes and explore the most interesting spots nearby the lake.

    On the way back the group heads back to Ponta Delgada to reach the south shore heading to the Fogo volcano. Your tour guide will take you to the highest point of this central volcano, up to 947 meters above sea level at Pico da Barrosa. From there, as you explore the inner crater you can enjoy and stop at Fogo Lake.

    Right next to the Fogo lake there's Caldeira Velha, an outdoor garden with hot thermal pools that you may enjoy.

    Finally the last stops will be at Ribeira Grande where you can learn the local way of living and stop at Santa Bárbara beach, the most popular site for surfers, to refresh yourself and enjoy the local shore view.

    Very enjoyable day touring these top sites on the island with Paulo, our very knowledgeable and friendly guide. Although I was just recently in the Azores, I learned many new things on this tour. The weather was very good to see the continuous scenic views.
