An unforgettable trip! José da Silva advised us comprehensively and put together an extraordinary program. Our desired destinations Iguaçu, Amazon and Bahia (beach) were included in the overall planning and supplemented by a one-week stay in Bonito and the Pantanal - this was the highlight of the trip along with the Juma Amazon Lodge.
The transatlantic flights were well timed with a relatively short Lisbon - Salvador flight, and all domestic flights were timed stress-free with sufficient connecting time. Overall, all connections were on time and pleasant to deal with. Due to the individual planning for our family of three, we always had competent and friendly and German speaking guides and good and reliable drivers. It is really comfortable to be picked up personally at the airport at two o'clock in the night and brought directly to the hotel. A special thank you to Edi, who guided us through the Mato Grosso area with his warm, friendly manner; we can also warmly recommend the guides Tilmann, Antonio, Claudia, Alex - we learned so much about Brazil, which would have been difficult for us to do alone.
The choice of restaurants, hotels and pousadas was extraordinary, perfectly met our taste and exceeded our expectations, for example the Hotel Villa Bahia is a perfect introduction to the very worth experiencing city of Salvador and the Pousada Capitu in Imbassai a truly paradisiacal place directly on the sea, the Estancia Mimosa with its riverside sheep simply gorgeous...
We are happy that we could extend the actual goal, a wedding in Petropolis, by the round trip through this wonderful country with its friendly people and will certainly undertake another Globotur Brazil trip after this entry. We strongly recommend José and Globotur - everything (!) was just very good! The best thing that could have happened to us.
