My husband and I did the half day canyoning with Azores Adventure Islands. The 2 guides were awesome - fun - helpful and encouraging. The half day was perfect for us and we were happy we did not do the full day. It was our first time canyoning - repelling waterfalls and cliff jumping. They gave you options - easier, intermediate and harder areas to repel or shorter jumps. I believe the highest jump we did was about 35 feet, but there was a shorter option. It was very safe and one of the highlights of our trip. Highly recommend this group. There are other companies for canyoning that do the exact same path.

Very entertaining Tour with our Guides Andre and Bea. They prepared us pretty well for every obstacle and made us Enjoy the Trip even more. Hope to meet Them again one day on another Trip.

My wife and I had a great morning riding the tracks around the volcano. The ride was a nice relaxed pace to enjoy the views with stop to learn about the area and try some of the ginger lily plants growing. It mas mainly flat or downhill and then finished with an enjoyable ride up the hill using turbo mode on the bikes - dead easy and fast!!

The bikes are modern and well kept ebikes - just remember that brakes are European style for opposite way round for us Brits - given notice they could have changed them over but we only booked the day before!!

Andre our guide is the sort of person who I can imagine is ever unhappy and his enthusiasm was infectious.

The ride was great but the company was even better - highly reccomended

My group and I could not have been more pleased with our experience canyoning with Azores Adventure Islands. Andre was amazing and made us all feel safe and supported throughout the day. He was so organized with our group's wetsuits and equipment and explained things in a way so that we could all understand. It's obvious he loves his job and is very very good at what he does. Manny was also helpful assisting but I wish he would have introduced himself from the beginning.

We booked two excursions with this company and both were nothing less than phenomenal.

We went canyoning at nordeste first and it was a once in a lifetime experience. We had never done anything like this before and were initially a bit hesitant but our guides made the whole thing so approachable and fun! (they always gave us an option to opt out and they were very keen on safety) The trip is a mixture of rappels down waterfalls, refreshing jumps and water slides!

We also did a half-day tour of Sete Cidades on e-bikes and this was probably our favorite activity on the island! The ride was beautiful from beginning to end and a truly special way to see the place. Our guide was super friendly and quite knowledgable (he knew his history well!), we had a great time!

Both experiences were fantastic and the guides on both trips were awesome! Highly recommended.
