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.

Ivan was amazing in this tour. He took really good care of us and made sure we see the top highlights of this amazing national park. Then he took us back straight to the hotel just outside the door. It was an amazing day. I really recommend this to anyone who only has a little time in Salvador but does not want to miss this gem which is Chapada Diamantina

Thoroughly professional service in English (one of his multiple languages) from Ivan that, as we were short on time staying in Salvador, allowed us to see the pretty and vibrant Lencois village and also some highlights of the Chapada Diamantina ranges. Recommended if you don't have time to spend several days hiking/camping in the park but still dont want to miss out!

We only have a few days in Salvador & was very keen to go and visit Chapada Diamantina National Park on a day trip. Every tour company does at least a 3 day trip, however, we were very lucky to find Ivan to take us on this tour. Ivan speaks 5 different languages: English, Portuguese, Dutch, French, Spanish and is very professional and prompt with his responses. He brought us to Lencois, some waterfalls/ natural eroded rock formation and the Grand Canyon of Brazil. We also have had a very nice local lunch (paid by weight) at Lencois, it’s our first and last one, the only one that looks hygienic and very delicious. It was 5.5 hours to and 7.5 hours journey back but the 5 hours spent at the National Park was well worth it! We give it to Ivan for taking on such long and grueling drive and also the mini hiking in the heat of the day in the National Park. It’s not an easy feat for him.

If this tour is not for you, he can always personalise other tours for you as you wish. Approach him for more details. = )

Beyond Ivan’s knowledge of the Chapada Diamantina’s canyons and nearby areas, he takes you back to the source. In this tour, you bond with Mother Nature and its elements: Water, earth, wind... and you come out ever so respectful of nature. The tour is also fun; magic. He is a safe driver, and the only guide in the area to drive all those many kilometers to meet your needs. This tour is a must-take.
