Helio the owner of paradise tours promptly picked us up at our hotel and we were treated to a wonderful day visiting all the tourist sites on San Miguel. We also went in style in his nice bmw which was very comfortable as we had a lot to see and one day to do it. He took us to a wonderful seaside restaurant for lunch which I enjoyed immensely. I hope to get back there someday, and will definitely call helio again!
My wife and I used Hello Silva of Paradise Tours for a 2 day tour of Sao Miguel. It was a very informative time together and we covered a great deal of the island. He charged us $150 per day which was much better compared to the hop on hop off bus when you compare the amount of time you can spend at each stop and the information you get.
This tour guide was recommended by our ticket agent. She was correct in that he was very good and spoke very good English. He knew where all the good places were and answered all our questions in great detail. We had 2 wonderful days of touring with Helio. I highly recommend this tour.
