This tour is good for first timer in the island. The tour will take you around the islands, go to the main beaches and good spot for snorkeling. The time to visit each places is quite short as they take you to many places...plus the stops to each pousada to pick up people but I think the trip is still worth the money. You can chose your favorite places and decide to go to the same place on the next day and spend more time there since you already know how to get there and skip other places which does not interest you much, then you can plan your travel more efficiently

Ilhatour is an excellent attraction to get knowing the island. The guide will take you around the island, to the best snorkeling spots and sightseeing places. It's really a great way of starting your tour. If you get the chance, ask for Márcio who works at Pousada do Vale, his services are awesome.

This to be read as a serious warning for ALL innocent travellors to Brasil Fernando de Noronha.
After visiting twice, last time november 2011, we think we can really make a judgement on this so called "Brasil Finest.!" It is most certainly NOT.!! the unspoiled paradise as shown in most foto's & publicity.
It is an overpriced, mosquito infected, ridiculous exspensive, extreem Tourist UNFRIENDLY, brasilian nightmare.!
It also is NOT an Eco-friendly island, despite all false intends of all brasil authorities to let you believe this fairy-tale story. It is a pure malicious intend based on false facts and un-true stories.
1) Upon arrival you are forced to pay-buy an ECO-tax, but this tax is NOT used to
benefit the Island but disappears into Brasil mainland pockets.
It is NOT an ECO-paradise with complete uncontrolled Buggy-Car-rentals, waste
& pollution allover and all kind of complete false & UNTRUE envirement protection
regulations performed by unprofessional, untrained staff.
WE.-!! consider it NOT possible for any normal invalid- or wheelchair tourist visitor
to travel&visit this island.
The money YOU spend is used for a happy few while rest of Brasil is left to watch.
2) NOT A SINGLE Hotel- or Private appartment has any direct acces to BEACH Front,
with only one exception, please read our other review.
Do NOT let any foto's or written publicity misguide you.
There is (almost) NO fresh fish or meat&vegetables;
all flown in or by frozen containers, at RIDICULOUS prices.!
3) the whole Island is MOSQUITO infected 12 month a year, 24hrs a day, both inland
and on EACH square inch of all beaches.
4) Almost ALL staff of ALL Hotels, Restaurants, shops have that certain
arrogance&unfriendly attitude you come across many overpriced tourist attractions
and it very UNLIKE all other Brasil.
This list could continue and everyday innocent tourists fall into this trap.
After travelling the world for last 45 years, we think we can consider ourselves as expirienced (tourist-)travellers, we have visited&seen most of the world Islands &Paradises, both luxerious or (preferred) normal standard.
We regret to say, as we LOVE BRASIL.!! and specially most Brasilians, this is one of World's worst Tourist TRAPS.!
We visited whole Brasil some 25 times on various occasions, and therefor we had to warn you, as this is NOT Brasil-style.
We hope with this negative but based on EXACT and true facts of personal expirience, (we visited this island twice in 2011, both 14 days-second time we was invited.!), that somewhere, someone from any Basil tourist organisation picks up the message and start organising this island into a more friendly Brasil-style holiday attraction but it will NEVER be a World Paradise like Seychelles, Mauritius, Tahiti, or other Real World Paradise destinations.
It will have the Beach-& Mosquito limitations, but with good management there could be future.......
PLEASE, YES, all your comments and personal expiriences are most welcome, and if we made mistakes or you think different let us know, as usually we do NOT have or like this kind of reviews and always hope for improvement to benefit others after us..!
