Itinerary

When does my tour start? This tour has a set departure time of 9 am.

You will be met at the port by your Cruising Excursions representative who will then guide you to your air conditioned transportation ready to commence your tour.

Be prepared for some breathtaking views, stunning scenery and fantastic landscapes on this full day tour which guarantees to get you back to your cruise ship in plenty of time.

The tour will commence with a scenic drive to Serra do Facho, where the tour will stop for approximately 10 minutes to allow photo opportunities of the beautiful beach, bay and city of Praia da Vitória, the viewing point is spectacular.

We then set off on a panoramic drive to Serra do Cume. Here we can view the largest crater of the Azores, known as the 'patchwork' due to it's profound green fields surrounded by volcanic stone walls. Your driver guide will be on hand to give you the information on this delightful view point and how this has come to pass.

Continuing on the tour to Biscoitos. Biscoitos is a quaint town famous for it's wine produce and of course the natural clear swimming pools. Your driver guide will show you the many natural pools and how the area has been developed to make it accessible for people to access the pools and beaches. You will also get the opportunity to view the many vineyards in the area, with photo opportunities along the way.

Within Biscoitos we will visit a local cheese factory, to learn about the production of cheese, the distribution and best of all getting to sample some of the cheese produced. There is an opportunity of buying the local cheese during this stop.

The tour will then progress to Monte Brasil, a volcanic peninsular surrounded by a Spanish fortress built in the 16th Century. The view point from the top we can see the city of Angra da Heroismo, where there is British Artillery dating back to World War II.

The tour will continue to Porto Judeu, where we will take in a buffet lunch, which is included within the tour price or you can just simply stroll around the town to take in the beautiful scenery.

After lunch, we will drive to Sao Sebastiao, here we will visit the oldest church on the island dating back to the 16th century, inside it has colourful mosaics.

The final stop on this tour will be Furnas do Enxofre, situated in the South Eastern part of the island. Famous for the lava cave and fumaroles fields, we will spend approximately 20 minutes here learning about the history and the culture before heading back to the cruise ship in plenty of time for your cruise ships departure.
