Paraty Tours sent us the flex boat ferry tickets from Abraao to Angra the day before via WhatsApp. Ferry ride went smoothly and the driver for the ride to Rio arrived in Angra about 20 minutes later. We shared a shuttle bus with a family of 4, who were lovely and helped translate between Portuguese and English for us. The driver took us inland a little on a different route to avoid construction and traffic in the tunnels, which allowed us to see a different part (very scenic!) of the area we would have not otherwise seen. We stopped twice along the way for snacks and bathroom. Jorgeiro (driver) was friendly. Communication with Paraty Tours was easy and prompt. The ride itself was mostly good; not a lot of leg room generally, but cool with the A/C. We already knew about Brazilian style driving... with some tight curves, if you get motion sick, we suggest Dramamine, etc. Dropped us off right at our destination (hotel) in Rio - very convenient.

Notre prise en charge par le bus de Paraty Tour affrété par Get Your Guide s'est très bien passée. Le bus était là à l'heure et nous a conduit comme convenu jusqu'à Angra dos Reis. Le bus était confortable et le chauffeur prudent et attentionné. Même chose pour le retour de Angra dos Reis à Rio. La coordination avec le bateau pour Ilha grande a été parfaite, nous avons reçu les billets de bateau aller et retour dès le départ de Rio. L'organisation de tout cela était sans faille.

Lo consiglio. il giorno prima su whatsApp mi hanno inviato i biglietti per la barca ed è stato comodo. Unica cosa da migliorare è fornire indicazioni su dove bisogna, una volta sbarcati, aspettare l'autista del pulmino. Noi ci siamo messi vicini al marciapiede e dopo un pò abbiamo visto il pulmino con la scritta paraty tour fermarsi a bordo strada poco più avanti, però per un momento ci siamo sentiti un pò persi. Comunque niente di grave , l'autista era puntuale e ci è venuto incontro.
