Dear Francesco,
I just returned from Brasil, as I had added Rio and Iguaçu Falls to my trip.
The part with Brasil Planet was super!!!
Everything went according to plan.
The drivers to and from the airport were prompt and courteous.
The hotels were very nice and I liked being on the beach in São Luis , but being in town in Barreirinhas.
The bus to and from Barreirinhas was fine.
I loved the trip to the dunes at Lençóis Maranhenses …just what I wanted.
The river trip was, also, fun with time at different dunes, the lighthouse and the beach.
The tubing trip was a great adventure… I wish it could have been longer as it was such fun.
All the guides were great in explaining what they could in English and listening to my Portuguese.
All in all, I couldn’t have found a better company to do what I wanted with such success!!!
You were also great pre-trip !
Thanks again for many wonderful memories !!!

Dear Brasil Planet,

Sorry for late response to the attached e-mail below.

I am travelling in Peru and have been a bit busy.

I would like to say my appreciation for your kind support & encouraging me to participate in the tour this time without English speaking guide.

Please be informed of the followings what I thought after the tour.

1. Tour itself was managed properly & correctly.

2. For travelers not speaking Spanish but hoping to participate in a tour (to be carried out in Spanish language),written detailed tour schedule information such as follows would be most important points on their enjoying the tour.

* Written information on pick up time & detailed place from the hotel participants are stayed.

* During the tour, what time we will leave after short rest or exercise & where the meeting point to leave together for the next.

* In case multi days tour, if someone would pick up a participant at the place known each other or a participant to move to the designated place by himself.

* Further, after finishing the tour activities, if a tour guide to take all participants to the place they had stayed before starting activities on that day.

* Others similar information

* These points should be informed in general through the voucher or e-mails, and after starting the tour, simple written memo paper to be given each time to all participants would be very supportive and understandable for not speaking Spanish travelers to avoid misunderstanding.

3. In this tour I participated, each guide was kind & care for everybody and therefore the tour activities were kept smoothly.

However, when returning to the harbor after day 2 activities, nobody had informed me if someone pick up each participant and take to a hotel for waiting to be picked up to return to a respective places, and nobody was there.

In my case, a hotel to be returned is near to the harbor, I had no trouble until returning to Sao Luis

4. Services would be done for a client and not to be done for easing or minimizing a tour staff work without considering a tour participant to have more comfortable time.


5. In general, I have really enjoyed your tour and appreciated your good tour management.

6. Hotel I stayed during the tour

*Good location

* Kind staff services

* Supportive reception staff

* Clean room & hotel facilities

* If reception staff to speak a bit more English, further be appreciated.


This time, I have enjoyed this tour very much and appreciate Brasil Planet.

Regards,

Kentaro Nkaadai

Hello Francesco,

We would like to thank you for an extremely well organized tour! Everybody was always on time and took care of all of the details - we were impressed by how relaxed we felt, given that the logistics are not simple because of how many locations we were visiting. The destinations were lovely, especially the Lencois Marahenses national park. We would recommend anyone going to this park to select Brasil Planet for peace of mind and excellent value for money.

Best,

Diana

Dear Francesco,

Trip was good thank you. The guides were kind and correct.

I have just on concern. First is about the assistance. The first transportation (actually most of them) got delayed, and when I phoned the “emergency contact” I realized that no-one spoke neither English nor Spanish. I felt a bit worried after that, as I realized I had no chance to mend any problem by myself.

Best regards,

Ignacio

Hi, this is Balasingam,

Thank you for making the trip memorable, everything was perfect more than what I expected, the airport pick up, outstanding hotel, hotel pick up, the tour for two days and dropping me back in airport, everything was perfect and timing, I have nothing to complain, the guides were very kind and polite.
I have already recommended Brasil Planet to three of my friends around the world.

Thank you for making my days in Brazil as unforgettable experience.

Hi Francesco,

Apologies for the slight delay, I ended up getting sick right after I got home. Overall we really loved our vacation to norther Brazil and the journey. Everything was planned well and we liked the hotel we stayed at. The 3 day itinerary was perfect since we were able to enjoy the dunes in the am, evening and also visit the beach, which was great. Our day 1 guide was the best, he spoke a bit of English and was very friendly. Our other two guides didn´t speak English but they also didn´t seem to explain too much in Portuguese either.

I will be sure leave a review on Tripadvisor and thank you for arranging!

Best,
Gabriela
