About Us

Verificando o crescimento notável que se tem vindo a verificar no Turismo do Arquipélago dos Açores, nasceu o projeto da Azores Touch, visando criar um leque de soluções com o intuito de proporcionar às pessoas que visitam os Açores sentirem-se como em sua casa, e sempre em contacto com a comunidade e cultura local. Dispomos de três áreas de serviços, alojamento local de diversas tipologias, rent-a-car & bike e inesquecíveis experiências de atividades relacionadas com a natureza e cultura e costumes locais.

Começando pelo alojamento local, a Azores Touch possuí casas de Turismo Rural e de Habitação, licenciadas e preparadas com todas as condições, inclusive com as exigências decorrentes da época de pandemia em que nos encontramos, para receber turistas e visitantes nas Ilhas Terceira e Graciosa.

O serviço rent-a-car & bike visa a disponibilização de uma frota de veículos e bicicletas, proporcionando um serviço integrado de experiências-estadia-transporte aos turistas e visitantes.

Para completar o leque de soluções, oferecemos a possibilidade das pessoas vivenciarem experiências únicas e inesquecíveis, consistindo na oferta de serviços e soluções de promoção de atividades de animação e entretenimento de turistas que visitam os Açores, oferecendo experiências de agroturismo, passeios, atividades marítimas, natureza, culturais e radicais. A AzoresTouch disponibiliza um leque alargado de atividades turísticas, complementada com uma aposta numa oferta integrada com parceiros nas mais variadas áreas da animação turística.

Com estas três áreas de atividade, é possível fornecer a melhor experiencia e inserção na comunidade e cultura local a quem nos visita, desde quando faz a reserva num dos nossos alojamentos, até à sua partida. Na Azores Touch acreditamos que fazemos amizades para o futuro, apostando e ambicionando que as pessoas voltem a visitar os Açores. Sempre com o lema Terceirense “Faça-se de casa!”.
