The Joao Pessoa tour with Alexandre as a guide was very interesting and complete. He is a very professional person with a lot of charisma and knowledge of his city. He made the day enjoyable and we were able to enjoy many things in this beautiful city. Thank you!!

The excursion itself was very nice except for the stop for swimming and lunch, the place was totally overcrowded and lunch was out of the question. Of course we walked to another restaurant.
