Hi Eunice... the stay in Ponta Delgada was fine - although the hotel seems to change its name as often as the Sao Miguel weather! We enjoyed Faial, Pico and Sao Miguel... and the car rental company did a good job with the car hire... Thanks. Richard

Thank you for the excellent service we have gotten from you. At the moment, all we need is in a package and just waiting for the holiday.
I was so fortunate to come across this website. This being my first time internationally flying I was very nervous about booking. What I was most impressed by was their excellent customer service. They were very responsive when it came to answering my emails, especially a woman named Eunice Costa. She answered all my questions and concerns all within hours! I am so pleased and will be referring this website to everyone I know. Thanks again for the great experience.
We had some issues with our flights being delayed for various reasons and the company was very accommodating. Tour guides and hotel staff were amazing!
We returned recently from a trip set up by your company. It was outstanding in every way and gave us tremendous pleasure and information. Our tour guides, especially Joao Toste and Paulo Camara, we more than excellent. We appreciated so much their attentive treatment of us and their knowledge of their islands. Your handling of the transportation, hotels (which were superb), and tours was unmatched in our traveling experience. We want to thank you so much. Job well done!
Working with Eunice Costa was so easy. She is so helpful and a good listener. My group of 9 residents was so happy and thankful for the wonderful experience. Our guides were so great, knowledgeable and caring. The hotels in Pico, St. Miguel and Faial were very good. The food in all the restaurants we ate was very good.
I would highly recommend going to Azores with Azores.com
This was my first experience working with Eunice at Azores.com. Our trip was beyond our expectations! The private meals and entertainment were certainly highlights besides the gorgeous scenery of the island. The tour guide and driver made sure our needs were being met and they were exceptional. Thank you for a wonderful experience for myself and my friends, I would gladly recommend you to others and will use your service again. Thank you!
What a great trip! The Azores are amazing as are the people! Working with Eunice Costa at Azores.com was terrific! She was extremely knowledgeable and clearly invested in helping us to plan a personalized and memorable trip based our needs and interests. I would recommend her services to anyone wanting to work with someone who clearly enjoys what they do and makes you feel comfortable knowing you are in capable hands. Thanks again for helping ensure our trip was unforgettable! :-)
Eunice was excellent!!!!! The places we stayed were beautiful!!!! The tours that were set up were very informative and the tour guides were excellent!!!! I can't wait to book my return visit!!!
Thank you so much!!!
My husband and I travel a lot. We've never enjoyed the level of service we experienced with Azores.com. From my first phone conversation with Eunice, through trip planning emails, her competence and expertise impressed me. She arranged our hotel stays, scheduled drivers and tour guides and suggested sites we might want to visit. By the way, the tour guides were amazing too. Their knowledge of island history enhanced our enjoyment of each place we visited. Azores.com service was truly amazing. Our trip was perfect and there was not a single hitch. Working with Azores.com is dealing with your own personal planner to ensure a memorable and relaxing trip. Eunice and her team took care of the details and we just enjoyed a perfect vacation.
This was a trip of a lifetime for my family. We visited 4 islands and each one was unique in their way! They were all beautiful and inspiring. I can't wait until I can make another trip there! Thank you to all who made this trip so special!!
My daughter and I recently returned from an incredible 2 week holiday in the Azores. Eunice did a great job of organizing our 4 Island tour, adding days here and there by request. All transfers where timely, the guides were personable and knowledgeable providing service in clean and comfortable vehicles, and the 3 hotels were stayed at provided great and friendly service. Of particular note was the Hotel Marina Atlantico that actually checked us in and provided our room at 8 am - after 24 travel hours this was an unexpected gift. The 4 islands that we visited were incredibly beautiful, pictures can never give the calderias and incredible views justice.
The Azores 4 Island Trip with Azores.com was fantastic. Eunice's planning was perfect. We had a great time. The islands are absolutely gorgeous. My most common word every day was “WOW”. Totally amazing sights. The people, the scenery, volcanoes, lakes, food, whales, dolphins, hydrangeas, everything made for a perfect and very enjoyable time.
Thank you Eunice and Azores.com!!!
Everything was extremely well organized. The guides were very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. The hotels were beyond our expectations. The Azores really is beautiful and the Azorean people couldn't be nicer.
This was a really good holiday (Azores July 2016). The hotels were good , transfers and flights all worked well and tour guides were amazing.
A huge thank you to Eunice for organising it for us - you certainly know the travel industry and the Azores!
We were met at the airport and also at each hotel we stayed at by courteous and knowledgeable driver/tour guides...and yes, they spoke fluent English. We had an individualized tour of each island without the hassle of being with a big tour group.
We will definitely be back to experience more of the islands soon...
Thank you for a great visit of the Azores!
Eunice at Azores.com was truly amazing. Every detail was worked out and our trip could not have been better. The guides on every island (4) were very knowledgeable. I learned so much and was entertained at the same time.
My English is not good enough to express my gratitude for this wonderful trip Eunice put together for us.. We had the greatest time and we had fun, a lot! We enjoyed every minute of it. We have found, again, the treasure of real people and that’s priceless.
I am very thankful for all the hard work you guys do to make these gem islands easily enjoyable for clueless foreigners like us.
We definitely will be back.
We booked a tour with Azores.com and were totally satisfied with the hotels, tours,flights and the,people we met along the way. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. This has to be one of our best vacations yet. The Azores are simply beautiful - each Island has its own beauty - difficult to,pick a favorite Island. Eunice did an excellent job of putting it all together for us from transfers to flights to hotels to tours. Plan to return and visit Islands we have yet to see.
I had an excellent, relaxing and fun vacation because Azores.com arranged my trip. Plus they got everything booked with very little advance notice which was terrific. All the hotels were delightful and my rooms had great views. The guides were extremely knowledgeable about numerous details about the Islands. They explained about history, geology, government, traditions, economics, contemporary culture and so much more. They made each tour fun and really worthwhile. All the travel arrangements went smoothly which allowed me to just enjoy visiting these beautiful and interesting Islands. Hopefully I'll go again and will definitely book with Azores.com!
I took 14 people (plus myself and husband) on a 4 Island trip to the Azores from 9/27/15-10/6/15 and I could not be more pleased. The hotels were excellent; the transfers were excellent and the guides were SUPERB!.
We had (my husband and I) taken a trip with 2 others a few years ago and had private transfers and tours. This was SOOO much better as the guides selected were 1st Class. We included some meals and they were at restaurants who offered great service and delicious meals. We could not have been more pleased. It was wonderful working with Eunice Costa...she is a gem!
Very nice contact, help at all the time, best prices. It is very nice to work with them. Highly recommended.
Travel to the Azores is a wonderful experience. Each island is unique and beautiful, the people are delightful, it is safe, the food is good, and the trip has reasonable costs. Planning travel through Azores.com ensures you see the high points. For more discovery, renting a car adds freedom to your schedule. We appreciate the services we received from Azores.com.
Our tour guide Antonio Pereira was excellent! He was on time, very knowledgeable , well mannered, a good driver and made our day a wonderful success.
We were amazed at his knowledge base of Faial and in particular Cedros. Our day with Antonio helped me locate a family homestead that was a dream come true for me.
Mr. Pereira's keen and inquiring mind and friendly persona enabled him to talk to nu merous people and get the information I needed.
My husband and I recently returned from a two week trip to the Azores. I can honestly say it was the best vacation we have ever had! The islands are the most lush, beautiful, dramatic and mellow dots of land in the middle of the Atlantic! The Azorean people are welcoming, kind, and go out of their way to help you.
We explored the islands of Sao Miguel, Faial and Pico. Each island is unique in its own right, and there are others we hope to visit someday, as well! Many people have never heard of the Azores, and that's what makes them so special. If you are looking for an American, touristy, chain hotels and water parks type of vacation, THIE AZORES ARE NOT FOR YOU? If you love nature, beautiful land-and-sea-scales, the solitude of driving on a road and seeing nothing but lash land, volcanic rock and tons of cows, then this is your place.
I am hesitant to share the Azores, because they really are so very special. I hope they always remain this way! I know we will be going back--hopefully, sooner than later!
My first trip to the Azores was planned with Azores.com and they planned the perfect trip for me after several conversations about my interests, likes, goals. They offered several choices for each island and set up tours, guides, transportation, hotels that more than met my expectations and made the trip so enjoyable that I plan to return and to ask Azores.com to help with the planning.
Our tour representative, Eunice, made our trip package easy and very enjoyable. The flights, accommodations, tours and activities were perfect for us. We felt safe and comfortable with the choices she made for us. Our tour guides on the Islands were great too and that made the trip very enjoyable. I would recommend the trip to anyone. We visited four Islands and enjoyed every minute of our trip.
Eunice was very patient answering our questions and helping to plan our trip. Everything went smoothly and it was a great experience. One in our party had a gluten free issue and Eunice did all she could to reassure her and found out about the hotel menus. We would recommend them to anyone.
From beginning to end, I had a wonderful experience with Eunice and Azores.com. The planning was easy, and Eunice was super helpful in putting together a wonderful 4 island tour on short notice and helping me to coordinate the flights. Also, when o wanted to add a tour while on the trip, she took care of it right away. The guides on each of the islands were knowledgeable, warm and hospitable, the transfers were all perfect, and the hotels were well located and well appointed. The best part of all was that Eunice made sure all of the details were handled so I could just focus on the amazing sights and people of the Azores. It was an amazing trip and one that anyone who likes nature, history and learning about new cultures will love.
I recently arranged a wonderful eleven day "roots" trip to the Acores for 6 adults & 2 children aged 8 & 10 comprising three generations of my family. It was a fantastic experience that brought us closer together as a family, and gave my grandchildren a window into what my life was like there in 1952. I can't say enough about what a pleasure it was to work with Eunice Costa, who heads the Azores.com office in Santa Cruz, CA, to plan our travel, accommodations, and many of our activities. Her responsive to our varied needs and her knowledgeable advice went beyond competent professionalism - she invested in making our trip a formative experience for my whole family. From flight, transport to & from our three hotel apartments with balconies overlooking the marina in Ponta Delgarda, recommendations for restaurants, arranging for a wonderful tour guide on the island, mountain biking, hiking, swimming with dolphins, whale watching and swimming in a hot spring fed ocean cove in 100* F. I live in RI and contacted a local recommended travel agent also featuring Azorian travel vacations, but did not find a customer centered attitude - it took a few calls and emails just to get a response, and then it was "This is the flight info, here are hotels, this is approx cost" with no attempt to establish why we were going or what we might wish to do once there. Although this agent was only a few miles away geographically, he was a light year away in terms of investing in his customer' s dream. Eunice Costa of Azores.com, while physically clear across the United States, bought into making our family trip a once in a lifetime experience. I can't thank her enough!
I was initially very hesitant about using a company I had never heard of to go somewhere I had almost nothing about! There were plenty of package deals out there, but because I wanted to include some very specific activities, I wanted to have a vacation that was not a cookie-cutter package. Eunice and I emailed many, many times and each email was responded to immediately. Shortly before our departure, I printed off our itinerary - complete with vouchers and contact information for every stop along the way. Flights were met at each island with a smiling guide. Tours left on time and included everything she promised and our specialty adventures (scuba, small vessel whale watch) were booked with first rate operators. The hotels were all clean and comfortable and met our expectations.
I should mention that we had another person meeting us halfway through our vacation, and she coordinated our travel plans expertly and when we left to return to the States, his vacation continued smoothly.
I have and will continue to recommend Azores.com and I only regret not having the opportunity to utilize this service again.
I contacted Eunice at Azores.com several months ago, explaining that my wife and I were thinking of celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary by travelling to the Azores for the first time. Over a number of weeks, Eunice tirelessly researched and shared valuable information on flights, hotels, points of interest, whale watching and more. Eunice also immediately provided assistance with last-minute flight scheduling changes, and promptly processed a credit related to an unexpected itinerary change.
I can't say enough good things about Azores.com in general, and Eunice in particular. Because of the stellar support, my wife and I were able to enjoy a [relatively]stress-free vacation of a lifetime!
Very friendly, very helpful, quick answers. I definitely recommend azores.com.
For my wedding anniversary, I chose the Açores as my preferred destination. I communicated with Azores.com by email and didn't know what to expect. In short, our experience was flawless. All appointments, visits, tours and flights were accurate as a clock. It was the best service I've ever received.
Really enjoyed this trip.
Thanks for everything.
Short 1 week trip to the Azores. Prearranged air, hotels and guide. Fantastic islands and everything was great. Can't wait to go back.
Eunice made all the arrangements for our 12 day, four island trip to the Azores. The hotels were fine,our personal tour guides were exceptional. The entire trip was a wonderful experience, the islands are truly beautiful. Thanks again Eunice Pat and Joyce Mckune
What beautiful islands. Too bad more Americans don't visit. Temperate all year. The largest island of Sao Miguel is one of the prettiest islands I have been to. Very high volcanic mountains, with 3 large lake filled calderas. ELVERY road on the island is lined with flowers. A great time to visit would be late June or early July when most are blooming. The capital of Sao Miguel Ponta Delgada is a lovely old town to walk around. My trip through azores.com was handled perfectly by Eunice. Pick ups at the airports and for daily excursions all ran perfectly.
We had an excellent trip to three Azorean Islands and stayed in four different hotels. Eunice helped with our flights, locations, car rentals and with the hotels. Everything went extremely smoothly and her recommendations were perfect for us.
The Azores are a great destination with really friendly and helpful people, prices are great, food excellent. The scenery is beautiful and often spectacular. What more could one want.
Thank you Eunice for your help!!
Thank you Eunice Costa for your efficient and excellent service.
My family ( adult siblings) were returning to the home of our grandparents. You arranged for accommodations and a driver on the Island of Flores. The Ocidental Hotel a family run business worked so well for us . We had great meals and service while there. Our guides were knowledgeable and accommodating. Warm Regards, Audrey
Eunice looked after our travel nightmare - an Opodo booked ticket that fell foul of an airline strike, was reorganised into a mutli island hop, and she effortlessly changed the stop-over accommodation, the multi-island car hire ( which is possibly the only commission she earned). Trauma of all, we suffered a bereavement back home in England on the second day of the holiday, and she calmly reassured us, shortening the holiday by 2 days only. In this world of sterile, personless transactions on the WWW its a joy to find a native islander fluent in both languages and aspects of today's international travel, while keeping the calm and delightful charm of the people of the Azores. Obrigado!
We booked 4 islands. All went perfectly seamless. All the hotels were great places to stay. All the prearranges tours and lunches were outstanding. The entire trip was fantastic and it was a absolute joy working with Eunice she was always a pleasure and wonderful person. We were totally delighted with the holiday and would book through her again.
I like service of this company.
I do a lot of traveling,this Azores vacation was the best.Everything was perfect.Can not think of anything that could have been done better...I would definatitely use Azores.com again and recommend it to Friends.
I received prompt and courteous service from Azores.com, which I used to rent a car, and to research activities and places to visit on the islands. I'd recommend the website to anyone planning a trip to the Azores. Had a wonderful time myself and would certainly visit again!
I received outstanding cooperation from the Azores Travel team with all the questions I asked over a 3-4 month period as I researched a potential trip to San Miguel in the Azores. The 'Azores Agency' (aka Eunice) then booked us a lovely, centrally located hotel, island tours and extra places to see as we walked around; she also booked the airline reservations for us. The flight was a short 4 hours and 15 minutes from Boston's Logan Airport to San Miguel in the Azores.
Due to Eunice's travel knowledge, we had a thoroughly enjoyable week in the Azores.
In the future we'll utilize her Agency talents for the Madeira Islands and Portugal also.
Loved everything about the Azores. Starting with people. Absolutely wonderful, caring and made me feel welcome to,their country. Visited many of the towns and found the country just beautiful from the ocean to,the mountain tops. Food was delicious! I can't say enough how much I enjoyed visiting the Azores and would go back.
As a Travel Agent, I am very picky when it comes to tour operators. I chose Azores.com to handle a fantastic trip for my best client and my clients and I could not have been happier! Eunice was with us every step of the way providing expert advice on where to stay, what to do, when to go, etc. Every aspect of the trip was taken care of from the fantastic hotels, flights, transfers between Islands, transfers on the Islands, excursions/tours, and all at a very reasonable price. Azores.com are THE experts on the Azores and the only tour company I use for my clients or my personal travel to the Azores.
Just wanted to tell you that our Azores trip was wonderful !!!! Thanks so much for all your help. The flights and hotel worked out fine - they put 2 twin beds together for us. The Pousada de Santa Cruz was awesome, I'm so glad you recommended it - we had a lovely view of the harbor and the dinners were fabulous (we ate almost all of our meals right at the hotel). The trip to Pico and our guide Antonio was great (he showed us so many things on the island). We can't wait to go back and see some of the other islands! Maybe next year, but hopefully we will learn a little more Portuguese by then!
We just got back last night from the trip, which we thoroughly enjoyed. And now we all want to go back again!
Muitissimo atrasado mas sempre e melhor tarde que nunca... aqui vai um email de agradecimento. Gostaria de dizer muito obrigada por todo o planeamento que fizeram por as minhas ferias do verao passado.

Foi um prazer ter planeado estas ferias pela sua companhia... finalmente consegui acabar os livros que fiz, com as fotos que tiramos, das nossas ferias ai. Divirtam-se a desfolhar!
Hi Suzanne, Paula and I got back last night from our honeymoon in the Azores. We had a great trip, really enjoyed the culture, food, and people--our flights and hotels worked out very well, especially the Hotel do Colegio in Ponta Delgada, we found it to be an excellent place, very accommodating. Thank you so much for setting up our trip. We're going to tell everyone about the Azores and if anyone shows interest in visiting, we'll direct them to you.
Suzanne, I wanted to Thank You again for all your extra efforts in making our trip to the Azores happen. Also for the the information you provided us after the fact. We did get the $ back from the insurance!! I'm glad you recommended it. Again Thank You and we will always use you when traveling to the Azores or Portugal , you are amazing!!
Bom dia Eunice. When we were in Ponta Delgada we called in to thank you personally for all your help - but were informed that you had just gone on holiday. We had a really remarkable and enjoyable time. Apart from the beauty of your islands the most enduring memory was of the friendliness and helpfulness of all the Azoreans that we met - we hope it stays that way once again many thanks.
Carol & Geoffrey Grimwood

Just a note to thank you for the excellent Transfer and Car Hire arrangements you made for us during our recent visit to The Azores. All worked very well indeed and the car rental choice proved to be a very good and helpful company. The cars were good. Thank you again for your help and we look forward to visiting The Azores again in the future.
We have just returned from our week in Ponta Delgada and wanted to drop you this note to say thanks for organizing the three excursions for us which we enjoyed very much, the children loved the whale watching although we only managed to see dolphins and we enjoyed the jeep safari and the taxi trip to Sete Cidades both our drivers where good hosts, they arrived on time and made the trips most enjoyable. The scenery we saw was breath taking. Thanks once again for organising our trips it was a brilliant service and one that I would recommend to anyone.
Kindest regards, Gulin

Hi Suzanne, We had a wonderful time! And we want to thank you for your help in planning and scheduling. During the first several days, it was as if you were along on the trip with us. My friend, Laurice, would say, "Suzanne did good. This is perfect." I do want to give you some feedback on Estalagem dos Clerigos hotel in Nordeste. The staff person who checked us in was not welcoming or helpful. We (two "senior" gray-haired ladies) dragged our luggage up the stairs in front of the staff person, and she never told us there was an elevator. The room smelled unpleasant and a gentleman was quick to respond to our concern by moving our room. But in truth, both rooms had bad odors. I think it was from the carpet and the humidity. The other hotels were splendid, but the one in Nordeste did not hold up in comparison. Nonetheless, we had a lovely time! We met a delightful young woman named Elisabet Mendoca in the Tourist Information Office who was gracious and helpful. I don't know if you have connections with the people who provide tourist services in Nordeste, but we wanted to mention how helpful she was. She helped us really enjoy being in Nordeste, in spite of the unpleasant welcome at the hotel. So once again I thank you for your help in planning a trip that both my friend and I will never forget! Best regards,
