What people are saying about Recife

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.

Unforgettable!

Private visit with the adorable guide, very accommodating on the schedule of activities. Olinda and the museum are a must see!
