Easy booking. Got updates while at the airport for my pick up. So, I am satisfied with my service.

The actual trip to ilha Grande and the boat there was without remark. Good driver, AC in the car and organized by the boat. But, we deliberately booked at 10.00 because that time suited us best. Admittedly, it said that "minor changes" could take place, but not as it happened. First we got info that we will be picked up at 07.00 which is 3 hours earlier. Then 8.15, then 7.30 and then 8.15 again and around 7.00 again. We received a message from three different organizers on Whatsapp. Different times all the time. At 23.00 I asked for a more exact time and then they said 8.15 when I finally called. But, 7.20 they were down in the lobby still… messy and quite a big difference between 10.00 and 7.20.

You do not get a physical ticket — At the Harbor in Abraāo, look for a Top Transfer Team member. They have your name on a list and can help you to the correct lane. They also let you know the name of the driver who picks you up.
