“DID 4 EXCELLENT TOURS WITH THEM”
“I booked an experience package pre trip which included 2 half day jeep tours, a city tour of Ponta Delgada and half day whale watching. All were fantastic. Walking tour was really informative and great way to start the trip. The jeep tours took us to a lot of the island including hot springs to swim. The whale watching was great, we did see a whale and literally hundreds of dolphins. All of the tour guides were extremely knowledgeable. I’d book with this tour company again in a heart beat.”
“THE PERFECT WAY TO SEE SÃO MIGUEL ISLAND”
“ We booked 4 full days with Futurismo. They were incredible at offering suggestions to help me build my itinerary, and were happy to accommodate my requests so we ended up booking a full day hiking Sete Cidades, a full day Whale & Dolphin Watching in the morning and a Jeep Safari to Lagoa do Fogo in the afternoon, a full day Hiking Faial da Terra and on our last full day we opted for a full day trip to Nordeste.”
