    A little busy at the time, I followed TripAdvisor's positive comments on Alexandra's work to ask for her help and advice for my week holiday starting from Sao Paulo to Paraty, then to Ilha Grande, and last back to Sao Paulo. She did a great job arranging the transfers and hotel

    Dear Nathalie, Hope you arrive with safety at your place! When we said goodbye, I was thinking where did you managed my records ... is not everyone who leaves the organization of your holiday in the hands of a stranger, lol ... I am very happy to know that our work has met their expectations, and even appreciate a for the delay in the first transfer, so we know a little more ... it was really nice to meet you! PS you really are very lucky !! Today the bad weather arrived on the island ...

    We traveled to Ilha Grande at the end of December for a day trip from Rio. My suggestion to anyone traveling form Rio to Ilha Grande would be to stay over for the night, not to try to make this a day trip. We were picked up at 5:30 a.m., had a 2+ hour drive to the ferry. The

    Dear K...y O....r, First of all, I'm sorry for the late reply ... But things have been very busy here in Brazil during this year's Olympic Games! I remember that day like it was yesterday: it was the beginning of the New Year's holiday, one of the busiest holidays of the year, many people left the Ilhagrande to spend the holiday in Rio de Janeiro. Meanwhile, the locals leave the RiodeJaneiro to enjoy the holiday in Ilha Grande. This caused one of the greatest congestion of the year and, instead of spending two hours traveling by private car, you guys have spent almost 5 hours! I am totally agree with your point of view ... much travel time for some fun! Moreover, in those days, despite the huge traffic of people on the island, there was a paralyzation of garbage collection services. We were smelly heaps of garbage in almost the entire length of ViladoAbraão! I did not want you guys to stay with this bad impression and offered a boat ride, after all, I had to get you guys of of here ... after all, I had to get you guys out of here ... But you're right: I forgot to mention that you guys should follow the trail to Lopes Mendes, but the boat stopped and everyone went to Lopes Mendes while you guys were in Praia do Pouso ... maybe because the place was really nice and not realized the time. How nice! At least you guys could enjoy some beauties of Ilha Grande. Please, forgive me if frustrated your best laid plans of a ride on a remote beach, I would put myself in the mood for a next trip to the island and this time, I'm going with you to Lopes Mendes. Thank you for criticism, even if negative, they can make us grow.

    Myself and my husband traveled to Rio the first of June and booking this tour was well worth the money. We stayed at a hotel in Ipanema Beach and the cost of the tour included transportation by private care to and from our hotel, the ferry to the island and the choice of 1 of 3
