Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    First (unfortunately), the logistics. We were supposed to be picked up at the hotel at 8 a.m, but a minibus only arrived at 8:45 - after the hotel reception made inquiries on our behalf. We joined the main tour bus about 20 minutes later at a random point on the main highway north. I assume they forgot to pick us up... The tour duration is listed as 8 hours, so we expected to be back at the hotel by about 4 p.m - but were dropped off at about 6:30 p.m. Luckily, we had no specific plans for the evening.

    TAMAR project is wonderful, the project visitor center is similar to a small marine zoo. OK, but not a must-see. The village resort is quite beautiful, but expect many tourist shops. The public beach at the resort is small and not really inviting. None of our group bathed there.

    Guarajuba beach, where we spent over 2 hours, is beautiful, but don't expect pristine white sand and clear water. The sand is a typical 'sand' color (i.e. light brown), and the water somewhat silty. For those interested in swimming, there was a strong rip current.

    Our tour guide was very friendly, and although we were the only English speakers on the bus (others spoke Portuguese, mostly, or Spanish) devoted sufficient time to us. Overall, though, it appears that the tour is seen primarily as a day at the beach with a little souvenir hunting, not a didactic trip.

    Would give zero stars if I could. Tour was rescheduled for a different day due to weather. Had been trying to contact tour guide to cancel for a refund but getting no response. Would like my money back since we never did the tour.

    We had a great time! Ivan knew all the locals routes and we were able to experience a really cool trail that wasn’t crowded at all. Lencois is a beautiful town and we wish we had more time! Chapada Diamantina is breathtaking.

    The trip was so worth it. It’s a lot of driving in one day and now that we know there is so much to see over there, we would go back and do the 2 day trip Ivan offers.

    If you have time, I recommend the 2 day trip so you get to see more. If you’re short on time, this one day express will be perfect for you.

    My wife and I spent 4 wonderful days in Chapada Diamantina National Park with Ivan, our private tour guide and driver in his comfortable, safe, and agile 4x4 SUV. Along the way, he shared his vast knowledge, many experiences, and clear English explanations with us. He tailored his itinerary to our interests and hiking abilities, where he shared his sincere passion of this unique place with us. We also loved the colorful town of Lençòis where we stayed 3 nights in a charming pousada conveniently located adjacent to the park's trailhead. Due to the long transit time to/from Salvador, we used the remaining 2 full days to enjoy some key park highlights. As such, we recommend a minimum of 4 total days, where even more days would've allowed us to visit more sites. We highly recommend Ivan for this adventure that we could not have accomplished without his expertise and car. Be sure to bring good walking shoes, hat, and sunscreen.

    Since I'm working remotely and short on time, I needed a quick way to explore Chapada Diamantina in a few days. After a quick Google search, I found Ivan's webpage and decided to write him. The whole booking process, pick-up, and tour guiding were super professional and punctual - which I like a lot. Ivan is a great driver and I felt super safe being in his car.
    Great experience - definitely recommended!
