What people are saying about Paraty

Great activity to do in the day! The bay of Paraty is incredible, the landscapes are heavenly. Beautiful boat, well equipped and service of drinks and meals on board (not included). The staff was really friendly and caring. A little extra: the guide we had spoke French! In short, a superb day on the boat!

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.

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!

We loved the tour, and actually went on the same tour the day after, as we found it to be a great activity in the hot weather, with all needed amenities onboard the ship.

Luan (our tour guide) was very good at explaining the nature and history of the area. It is a tour that is definitely worth doing when in Paraty.
