Our pick-up by the Paraty Tour bus chartered by Get Your Guide went very well. The bus was there on time and took us as agreed to Angra dos Reis. The bus was comfortable and the driver careful and attentive. Same thing for the return of Angra dos Reis to Rio. The coordination with the boat for Ilha Grande was perfect, we received the return boat tickets as soon as we left Rio. The organization of it all was flawless.

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.

I advise. the day before on whatsApp they sent me the tickets for the boat and it was convenient. The only thing to improve is to provide information on where, once disembarked, you have to wait for the driver of the van. We got close to the sidewalk and after a while we saw the minibus with the word paraty tour stopping on the side of the road a little further on, but for a moment we felt a little lost. Anyway, nothing serious, the driver was on time and came to meet us.
