Ponta Delgada Sete Cicades Crater Lake Tour Excursion Reviews

The Sete Cidades area of Portugal, long considered a natural wonder with its many pristine lakes and craters, is a truly stunning sight. On an excursion from Ponta Delgada in the Azores, you'll even get to see a village built inside of a crater near the Fogo Volcano on a Sete Cidades Crater Lake Tour.
I booked three (3) vans for this tour.

I booked three (3) vans for this tour. The trip went well and the vans were clean, the drivers knowledgeable and the experience good. We went to the hot springs, the Sete Circades Crater Lake and the town of Ponta Delgada. Over-all we liked the tour and really enjoyed some aspects to it. However there is not all that much to see. The day was overcast so the green and blue lakes looked the same colour. Some of the scenery was breathtaking. Read Less

Half day 4 x 4 tour.
Sail Date: April 2019
Half day 4 x 4 tour. Driver, Pedro, was excellent and was able to drive us round the shores of the lakes. The weather was so bad that those on bus tours saw absolutely nothing at all because they could not access the routes we took.

Spent a few hours wandering this picturesque town. Did a jeep tour to the Sete Cicades Lake - nice tour with personable driver. Countryside is very nice, not a lot of amazing highlights but still worth seeing.
