Precise and punctual in picking up at the hotel. We saw a lot of things with a really knowledgeable and kind guide. Super recommended experience

Thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour of Belém- thanks to Andreiy.

Our guide Andeiy was a wealth of knowledge. We hardly felt the three hours go by. We had an excellent tour of all the important sites of Belém.

It became a private tour for the 2 of us. Our affable guide accommodated our unscheduled requests with patience. Nice day.

It has been a super complete guide, Luis is a true professional and his recommendations have been unbeatable.
