What people are saying about Paraty

Recommended tour with a nice guide. Lots of explanations and information. Two stops with smaller hikes to beautiful waterfalls, a visit to a restaurant and a stop at the Cachaca distillery - there also a nice English-speaking guide and good tasting.

Ronaldo picked us up on time at the pick up point with no issues. Presumably because there was only 2 of us booked for the morning transfer we travelled by car. It was a really scenic drive with fantastic views of the coastline. Thanks Ronaldo!!

This tour is such great value for money! The crew was great, very LGBT friendly which was refreshing :-) The landscapes beautiful, the drinks and food tasty. I would definitely recommend and do it again if I could!
