It was one of the best guided tours I've ever taken in my life. I think it's super worth it. The Maranhão sheets are a beautiful place that is worth visiting. Guide Nailson was spectacular, very attentive and took beautiful photos. I highly recommend it!

Alright. Indeed the first message mentions a meeting point at Subway but it is then up to us to specify the pick-up location. Good communication with the driver before departure. Everything was ok!

This is a great experience, the guides were very nice and kind. The food was really good. They really take into consideration everything needed to make you have a great time, totally recommended!

It's great to travel with them, although I have a bug about a meeting point that doesn't exist, I have to get in touch to confirm the pick-up location.

Excellent service, they were on time. The driver was very courteous and careful. Would take this service again.
