What people are saying about Barreirinhas

the driver and the guide picked us up at the airport at around 8 am and from there we went directly to our hotel in Barreirinhas which we had booked. We make a meal stop etc because the journey takes around 4 hours. then around 1:30 p.m. we are split up to do the activity. already going there is an adventure in itself: with our car in safari mode we cross the river then 1 hour of route to access Lencois. the road is difficult it is like progressing in the desert in 4 × 4. if back problems or motion sickness to avoid absolutely but we, we loved it! then 2 possible paths. and we choose according to our physical condition. the spectacle is magnificent arrived on the spot. and André our guide always takes us further to discover and find ourselves alone otherwise we can also stay swimming .. the 2nd day crossing the river is magnificent. mangrove dunes. Andre stays with us until we return and explains everything. awesome guide

Superb discovery. Very serious agency. Support always on time. Always very nice guides. Good timing left for free time. Perhaps we should stay less time on the beach of Atins because the lunch is not made there and the beach and the water of the river with the boats is not clean. The restaurant is good but does not offer enough choices in starters or pastels for those who would not have the budget to take a dish. Very satisfied with these 3 days and the Tagatur agency with a person who accompanied us all along on Whatzap! Thank you !

Superb experience! The tour was perfectly organized from start to finish. The 4x4 was just great, thrills because you have to hang on. The view of the dunes is more magical, no complaints, we really have time to enjoy it. The boat super, the stopovers are long and we had time to discover and swim. At the top, I recommend 100% it's to be done! PS: Do not take a guide, it is not at all necessary.
