“Hi Renata, the hike to Lagoinha do Leste on Saturday was just what I was looking for – so thank you for arranging.  The guide was great and had even brought along some Brazilian fruits for me to try. Some of them i had never even seen before, let alone tasted, so they were very much appreciated. We also stopped for a drink of sugar cane on the way back. Another new experience for me and an absolute delicious one! Thanks again,

“Dear Renata, Thank you for organizing everything so perfectly. Rodrigo was fantastic! Will recommend him and your services to friends who will no doubt travel to Florianopolis soon. We had a blast! Thanks again.”

“We really enjoyed our stay in Floripa! The Pousada Vila Tamarindo was really neat, very clean and the staff very helpful and friendly. We specially liked the versatile breakfast buffet. The car rental was uncomplicated and everything worked out very well. The trail was fantastic and we were so glad to have a guide, as the way was not always easy to find. In whole, we had a fantastic stay on a beautiful island with awesome beaches!”

“Hi, i would just like to let you know that the agent was very helpful in making arrangements with multiple hotels and offering suggestions. The Jurere Beach Village Hotel is a beautiful modern hotel with many amenities including spa, gym, game room, restaurants, television with several English language channels, a large centrally located pool with bar service, beach front access and a courteous staff. The Jurere area was quieter than expected but is apparently hopping during New Years and Carnaval. The Praia Mole Eco Village compound stretches from Praia Mole to the Lagoon, offering direct access to both. Praia Mole rivals any beach I´ve ever experienced and is highly recommended. The rustic central block hotel is surrounded by vegetation and feels very tropical and natural. The staff was very accomodating and helped translate last minute phone call arrangements with our Portuguese rental car company. Our group all wished we could have stayed longer.”

“Hi Joao, We have had a brilliant time in Florianopolis going surfing, swimming, eating seafood and generally soaking up the sunshine. Awesome thunderstone and down pour of rain this morning! Brazil is very similar to Queensland´s weather back home in Australia. Many thanks again, you have been fantastic! Cheers,”

“I would like to thank Mr. Joao Marcos Neves of Brazil Trails for helping make our trip to Florianopolis a rememberable holiday. Their professionalism, experience and friendliness advice helped organise the little things that matter most while on holiday. From organizing our hotel transfers and supplying us with the car hire to travel to so many of the great surf beaches. I would recommend their service to any future visitor to Floripa and don´t hesitate to contact them with any queries. Regards,”

“Renata, I wanted to say thank you so much for making my holiday a truly special and memorable experience. The train and hotel you arranged for me in Curitiba was fantastic and your directions made it so simple for me. I have completely fallen in love with Brazil and it has been mostly due to warm and beautiful people here of which you are a shinning example. Obrigado! You will definetely see me again and I´ll stay in touch, Beijos.”

“Thank you SOOOOOO…. Much for everything. I had such a great time and can´t wait to come back. Brazil is such a great country with amazing people. I wish I could have said good bye in person, but our flight was so early. Everyone got home safe and we are all getting back to the reality of working long hours again. Thank You So Much!

“Renata, I was impressed with your service, especially 1) attention to detail 2) promptness in responding and 3) the fact that you actually bothered to get the info I needed for sure seven though you had visited the Majestic Palace Hotel.”

“The service was excellent from Brazil Trails.  It was really good to meet Renata at the airport and she was extremly helpful and friendly. The information she gave us was very useful. It was really useful to be able to pay by credit card. We had previously tried to contact pousadas in Barra individually and they tried to make as pay by bank transfer which was impossible from other countries.  The accommodation Pousada Mar do Leste was excellent, very close to the beach, great breakfast and very clean. The family running it were very friendly, and we communicated somehow by a bit of English and a bit of  Spanish! We would definetely recommend the Pousada Mar do Leste to anyone.”

Andrew Summers

“There could not have been anyone else better. Every question was responded to very quickly and I could count on being able to book anything in a moments notice. When my plans changed I received help right away. Everyone I was referred to offered great services. Brazil Trails made the trip a success for my friends and me. Thank you so much! My friends and I really appreciate everything you did to make our trip go smoothly. You helped make this a great trip.  The yoga was our favorite. It was great. The Majestic Hotel was great, everyone was extremly nice.“

Marc Boiron

“Great communication throughout the process of booking. It was great to be able to count on Brazil Trails to pick me up and to take care of everything once I landed in Floripa. I am very satisfied with their service. Samuka Hotel is extremly well located, 2 minutes walk from the lagoon, and a bus ride away from great surfing beaches. Everyone was welcoming, charming, trying to communicate and helped me with my Portuguese along my stay. I had a blast and recommend the Samuka Hotel to anyone.”

“Dear Renata, now we are safely home it is time for me to thank you for all your help and to tell you we had a fabulous time in Florianopolis. We managed to learn about the bus system and got around a bit, but also just enjoyed relaxing at the end of our holiday. The Pousada Mar de Jurere was lovely, clean, confortable, friendly and excellent breakfast. Thank you we have had a lovely time. Now we are back to our real world but much refreshed. I will happily recommend you to anyone consider going to your part of the world. Very best wishes,”

Not only did they help answer questions we had abut the area, she ensured our airport transfer was waiting for us upon arrival. A great driver, and his help upon arrival was wonderful to have. This is a great way to ensure you are taken care of in advance of arrival! Renata and her team did an EXCELLENT job! Thank you!”

“My accommodation (a really nice apartment) in Pousada Colinas da Lagoa was absolutely fantastic, great value for money, nice breakfast, and the staff very helpful (Well done Alex!!). I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to my friends and one day I hope to return. Brazil Trails was very clear, very efficient, and worked really well.”

Renata provided excellent service. She was very responsive and ensured that we had excellent accommodations for our trip. We are extremely satisfied. The Il Campanario Villaggio Resort accommodations were excellent! The service was excellent from all the staff in the resort. The room was clean, comfortable and private. The food was delicious. The front desk, concierge, waiters, housekeeping, beach attendants, pool attendants, shuttle drivers were terrific. We were impressed and would not hesitate to return. We loved it!
