This tour was excellent all around. I got picked up from my hotel, then was given a tour of the city center with historical references to complement landmarks we were seeing. My guide, Jenelle, was kind, funny, professional yet approchable, and very knowledgeable. I enjoyed walking around, taking photos, and getting coco water. The drive to Maracas Beach was gorgeous. We stopped for the view and grabbed some local snacks. Once in Maracas, I LOVED the beach, and got to try Bake and Shark. All in all, I spent a beautiful day, learned a lot, and saw amazing landmarks, landscapes, all with gorgeous weather. I highly recommend this tour to folks who don’t want to have to worry about driving. You get to see a lot, with a guide who teaches local history without having to worry about traffic, driving in hills, and parking. The tour is well designed: neither rushed nor slow, it provides unique insights. I am very grateful to Jenelle for making this experience a memorable one, and for her incredible recommendations on where to find good books and good food.
