Everything was excellent. Your services, sending complete and accurate information, arranging seat selection on flights, picking great centrally located hotels, everything worked perfectly. The Azores is a wonderful place to travel. They have good roads and infrastructure, the people are friendly, it feels safe, and it is one of the most beautiful places in the world.

We had a wonderful time on Pico, Terceira and Sao Miguel. We plan to come back and base out of Pico so we can get to Faial and Sao Jorge in the future. We loved the country, the accommodations and the guides. We also likes how easy it was to get around all the islands and how helpful everyone was. The guides and staff of the hotels (as well as Azores Getaways) went above and beyond the call of duty. The ability to communicate by email was very helpful-we could confirm our excursions and get answers to questions when we had them.

Fantastic! The Azores are stunning and I loved traveling around the islands and seeing as much as I could. I've already recommended the trip to my family and friends and would love to return again in the future.

We had a great time. We got to 4 of the islands and found the Azores beautiful. The islands are small enough to circle in one day - easy to go from city to village to countryside. Great weather, lovely people.

From the ticket agents, flight attendants, and the hotels, you ALL provide over-the-top service. Hospitality is a very hard business to be in; and no one to shows any disrespect. I have been on 3 trips to the Azores in 18 months and I plan on visiting again in 2018. I have made friends on Terceira with the owners of O'Cachalote Restaurant and they are very positive people. They feel like family. (They offered to show us Flores on our next trip in 2018) I truly enjoy the plant life and the serene surroundings. The islands seem clean and everyone is friendly and trustworthy. I have been helped many times by people who do not speak English. (sadly this would not happen in America) Our hotels have also been wonderful as well as the people operating them.

The Azores is a gorgeous, unusual & unspoiled jewel of a place. It's beauty was amazing to me. The helpfulness & goodness of the people made it even better. It offered many sightseeing & outdoor/hiking experiences. We like that type of thing so we spent alot of time outdoors. The air was clean & many places smelled like flowers altho we couldn't seem to find which flower was so fragrant. It's green reminded me of Ireland. The volcanic mountains & rocks made it very unique. Pastures with rock walls & cows are everywhere. It's food was delicious. I feel like I stepped back in time to a simpler era.
