Manuel was an amazing and knowledgeable guide that showed us a great time on this tour! He picked us up in Ponta Delgada and then we went to the Cha Gorreana tea plantation and Furnas. My girlfriend and I were looking for an engaging excursion with lunch (the local stew) from the Fumaroles in Furnas. We loved the tour and the food! Manuel was so helpful, as he also gave us dinner recommendations for that night and even took us to the airport a ew days later!

I did 2 solo hikes with the company and got lots of amazing and invaluable information about the island, nature, local vegetation and life. My first hike was to Faial da Terra and a lovely waterfall, followed by a delicious lunch at one of the cute seafood restaurants. Another was Lagoa do Fogo - one of the best hikes on the island. However, since I am a blogger and photographer, I was also interested in checking out local villages, a liqueur store, a town nearby, etc., and the owner's son was beyond accommodating and helpful. You won't find friendlier people than those running BigBlue Adventures. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I had the pleasure of being invited by the owner of the company for "The Chef for a Day" experience. Evaristo, the most hospitable, warm and gracious host, took me to the local market early in the morning. Later, he opened his home to me, showing me how to prepare a local fish stew. We made it together in his kitchen and then drove to the fumaroles in Furnas to put it in the ground to cook for a few hours. During the cooking time, he took me on a lovely hike through Grena Park and even drove me to a nearby fishing village to show me the views. We later feasted on his amazing fish cozido at a picnic table right by the lake. He even purchased some island cheeses, bread and incredible wine from Pico Island for me to enjoy. THE MOST UNUSAL AND WONDERFUL DAY IN GREAT COMPANY! I also did 2 hiking tours with them and they were fantastic. THIS COMPANY HAS MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!

Went on three different tours with Andre. All of them exceeded expectations. What a wonderful experience! When the weather didn't cooperate, Andre always had a back up plan that never ceased to amaze. Can't say enough good things about him, his depth of knowledge and this company. It really meant a lot to us that Andre was able to encourperate a short stop at my Mother's village, a place she hadn't been in about 65 yrs. He is part of our family now! Obrigad Andre and BigBlue!

The plantation is beautiful and the information regarding the process is educational. However, the experience only took around 15 minutes. There was no speaker or guide and the equipment was not running when we were there.
