My name is Thomas and I am from Denmark I make guided tours because I can’t help it. Being a guide is not a job it’s a lifestyle. I have been a tour guide since 2005 in many places in the world but my first destination was actually Sao Miguel. I fell instantly in love and decided back then that I would be back here someday. Since then I have been doing free tours in Copenhagen, Madrid, Hamburg, Prague, and Aarhus. But now I’m back and call the Azores home.

A walking tour of Ponta Delgada was a great idea! It is nice to know the history of many of the sites we would typically walk by and wonder. Thomas did a great job introducing us to this historic city.

Thomas was an excellent guide and historian. His pace was easy to follow. We gained so much knowledge about Ponta Delgada. He shared numerous recommendations for local eateries! We enjoyed his stories and his passion for his chosen place to live, Sao Miguel !! Highly recommend his tour. You won’t be disappointed!
