Fantastic tour! You must try their cocktails served on the boat

Poor organization, the guide was not really one, hardly present. This gentleman spoke a few words of French to switch to English, you call that, an excursion in French? In addition on the return to the Salvador terminal, we waited 45 minutes for the driver from the VIP Brazil agency to bring us back to our hotel. On the other hand Get Your guide is a serious company and insures for its customers!

Nice trip, very friendly boat staff, the guide a bit scattered, recommended but could be improved.
