Pros: good day full of activities, got to see many things, lunch buffet was good. Going to sugarloaf at sunset was the highlight of the trip, it was so beautiful - highly recommend.

Cons: a lot of waiting around, we got picked up at 8am but because we had to pick up other people and wait for others it wasn’t until 12 that we actually started the tour. Because of the waiting, we didn’t get to go to Maracena as we ran out of time. Our tour guide was very funny but we didn’t get any of the jokes because he kept forgetting to translate to English (and everyone else spoke Portuguese). Overall he did a good job but some improvements required.
