3.9 / 5

We had a wonderful day at Guarajuba Beach, Praia Forte and the Tamar project. Communication in advance was good. I would have given 5 stars for the tour itself, but 1 star deduction, because I had already booked the tour in German at the beginning of November and it turned out 4 days before the start that, due to a system error and due to the carnival, the tour was only in English is possible. Our guide Misael and driver Alfredo Junior were excellent. Since it was a private tour, they were able to cater to our needs and we felt very comfortable and safe. The two had to compensate for the carnival-related limitation disappointing the beach Tamar. We couldn't see any free turtles here, only in the pools. But Misael was able to liven it up with his explanations. You could do without a detour to visit the ruins of the Garcia d'Avila castle. The view from above is nice, but the way there is not worth it.

The -only- negative was that we specifically booked the trip with an english tour, and not having that made for a very confusing morning. The destination, however, was incredible. Morro de Sao Paulo was a major highlight of our trip. The guide was super friendly, the coach bus was comfortable, but a bit cold since we only packed for heat, and we couldnt understand any of his explanation of what to expect. Overall worth the confusion though. Giving the guide a five star rating because he really did care about giving everyone the best experience, even if we couldn't understand him haha. Very charismatic.

Very beautiful place but too far It’s very tiring to do in one day We only stayed 3.5 hours on the island and most of the time travelling You should sleep there at least one night

Nice trip, very friendly boat staff, the guide a bit scattered, recommended but could be improved.

Fantastic tour! You must try their cocktails served on the boat
