What people are saying about Morro de São Paulo

Overall rating

3.9 / 5

based on 16 reviews

The -only- negative was that we specifically booked the trip with an english tour, and not having that made for a very confusing morning. The destination, however, was incredible. Morro de Sao Paulo was a major highlight of our trip. The guide was super friendly, the coach bus was comfortable, but a bit cold since we only packed for heat, and we couldnt understand any of his explanation of what to expect. Overall worth the confusion though. Giving the guide a five star rating because he really did care about giving everyone the best experience, even if we couldn't understand him haha. Very charismatic.

It was excellent. I didn't know a single word in Portuguese and the guide was kind enough to translate me everything. Truly recommend it. Sorry I forgot his name (it was an Italian name).

Very beautiful place but too far It’s very tiring to do in one day We only stayed 3.5 hours on the island and most of the time travelling You should sleep there at least one night

Excellent and reliable transfer. They picked me up at my hotel in Salvador. It was a great way, stress-free, to get to Morro de São Paulo. I definitely recommend them. Thank you

This was a really efficient and exciting experience. The guide was great, spoke some English and we were always looked after.
