Special Parana did a fantastic job for me at the last minute, arranging a ticket for the Serre Verde express train and a personal tour to Ihla do Mel. They were efficient, professional, and flawless.

The local guide drove us in 4x4 vehicle to Marumbi State Park entrance. From there we walkedto the Narumbu train station on a trail through magnificent stretches of Mata Atlantica, the Atlantic rainforest. We even scaled a mountain overlooking the station, offering us beautiful views of the Marumbi peak and the Serra Verde railroad. After that the guide saw us back the Marumbi station and waited with us for the 4 pm train from Morretes to Curitia. The whole tour was organised through Special Paraná via WhatsApp with. Everything we asked for was provided for a very reasonable price.

I did the Serra Verde luxury experience (full day). The booking service was excellent, the train carriage is amazing as are the views along the trail. The snack served on board is nothing to write home about but I found it most disappointing that neither of the guides had anything to say about the wildlife of Mata Atlantica. When we arrived in Morretes there was a mix up with the lunch booking (we were taken to an exhibit about the story of Paraná but after a few minutes were told that we had to go to the restaurant instead). This left only 15 minutes at the end of lunch to see Morretes (too short). Antonina was very pleasant as was the drive through Graciosa (though not a lot of visibility in the van).

Hello! Thank you very much for your review. We have sent it to the logistic department too to instruct the guides better about wildlife and to check about the tour schedule. Thank you very much for informing us that!

Ilha do Mel was the best idea ever. If you have just a few days to spend in Curitiba and limited time, this is the best option. It is just perfect and offers lots of choices: spend the whole day on the beach, visit the beautiful lighthouse or the fortress and have delicious, fresh fish and sea food in one of the traditional lively restaurants. Our lovely guide, Vivian, made our day even greater! Without her, it wouldn't be the same. She is very helpful and has lots of interesting things to say. She was a great company and it was a pleasure meeting her! Vivian really looked after us and we had lots of fun as well! I just wished we had more time to spend the night on the island, which is ideal for getting in touch with nature. Thank you for the wonderful experience!
