We used Paraty Tours to go from GIG to Paraty, then to the Ilha Grande ferry and then back to Rio. The driver was timely and good. We felt safe with his driving skills and it was worth the extra we paid not to have to worry about transfers and getting to the right location. He also allowed us to stop for refreshments and a restroom break. I think we did get overcharged for the ferry - our driver directed us to a guide to buy our ticket and we paid twice what everyone else was paying. For what we paid for the transportation, we shouldn't have had this happen.
We also did the Schooner trip with them. Thank goodness it was off season and we took the early boat. It looked like this could have been very unpleasant at times with the number of boats that follow the same route and arrived at the same time.
Staff at the main office was very helpful with other issues.
