You might have asked yourself, why should you explore a new place with the help of a tour guide? There are not only guide books available, but the internet is full with useful information. There are some simple reasons to do so…

  • Booking a tour saves time – no need to find your way
  • Booking a tour is comfortable – no need to care about mobility
  • Booking a tour is complete – not miss out anything

…and there are more elaborate reasons to book a tour guide…

  • The guide knows the stories of Faial
  • The guide knows the history of Faial
  • The guide knows the people of Faial

The guide can show you the unique and interesting side of Faial.


Born in Switzerland, after having spent more than 20 years of my life in business in various European countries I moved with my wife and our daughter in 2019 from Budapest to Faial. Why Faial, not only because of its beauty and remoteness, but also because of the charm of the people, its society and history. It was a big decision to do so, but never since we had a minute of regret.

Andreas Merz, visit Faial, the best destination of the Azores Besides guiding visitors, we are having an organic banana farm in Feteira, are working on the reconstruction of our house into a small bed&breakfast and enjoy becoming more and more Faialense.

Living in Faial, but coming from outside, means that I can not only show you our beautiful island, but I also know from personal experience what are the differences which are interesting for a visitor. Check out our tours, I am sure that we have something for you. If you are not sure, please drop a line and I will help.

For those who like it, accompanied by a glass of wine from Pico. We have of course also vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options, if you have any allergy, let us know.

The composition of the basket is seasonal, but typically includes the following:
