Outstanding tour. We had the good fortune to be accompanied by Caio for our second tour in Recife. Once again he was professional, punctual, and very knowledgeable about the area. We enjoyed the historical sights and flavors of Olinda (thank you for the wonderful fresh coconut) after which we were able to enjoy a private time for Lunch before traveling to the magical Ricardo Brennand Institute. just to make sure we would never forget him and our trip to Olinda, Caio gifted us a delightful parting gift of Olinda. Thank you again for the great day and for the memories.

bonitonpero hay desorganización con los horarios

Olinda es un bonito paseo pero corto y queda mucho tiempo libre ente culminar esa visita y la visita al Instituto Ricardo Brennenard, que es maravilloso . Adicionalmente no tuvimos comunicación alguna con operador local . Si no escribíamos un día antes no sabíamos cómo haríamos .
