Have you ever been to Ponta Delgada?

Ponta Delgada began as a simple fishing village whose fishermen were once attracted by its safe coves, but soon began to play the role of main port of the São Miguel Island.

The city grew and in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries the convents, churches and manor houses flourished and still today they integrate the historic centre.

Ponta Delgada is today a cosmopolitan city, outward looking, with a lively economic and cultural life. The extensive coastline road, which borders the harbour and the sea outlining the city, is the expression of its dynamism, adapting to new times and also the access road to the city.

Boasting a history of over five centuries and precious testimonies of the past, Ponta Delgada is a multifaceted city where tradition lives hand-in-hand with the present and cosmopolitanism with wholesome tranquility of the Azorean life.

What People Are Saying

★★★★★
"We took a wonderful half day tour with Telmo from Ponta Delgada to Sete Cidades. Telmo was incredibly knowledgable and took his time to make sure we had a great experience. The sites were amazing and he was able to take us places that not all tours can take you because of the vehicles they use. We wish we had more time to book another tour but will definitely do so when we return next year. Telmo also made an excellent recommendation for dinner in Ponta Delgada at a place that more caters to the locals. The sites were amazing but it's Telmo who really made the day special."
★★★★★
"The island is truly beautiful. Our tour guide spoke excellent English and had a wealth of knowledge about every aspect of the island. Due to the small size of our group he tailored the tour to our preferences. He drove a 4 x 4. This permitted us to access the crater rim road and many of the small country roads in the Sete area. Many people took the large bus tours and had a very limited tour on the main highways only. He even showed us an excellent restaurant in town after we returned. We highly recommend this company for your tour of the Azores."
