I wanted to know the beaches, obviously that was what the tour was about, but the day before they put together a more complete tour with a visit to Piedra del Telégrafo, very good and entertaining but then there was only time for 1 Grumari beach, and the other Prainha they told us that we simply could not get through because the driver could not, a pity because what I wanted was beautiful beaches and the tour was incomplete. The guide Jessie is an excellent guide and always concerned about the entire group. They gave me back half the money but when you go on a trip and program a certain ride, with mistakes like this you are left without knowing what you wanted

Super awesome

It was a pleasure to discover the beaches with Felipe as a guide.

Felipe gave us seven beaches to choose from. We could have visited everyone. We then focused on three. His knowledge of country and people brought us closer to Brazil and especially Rio.
