What people are saying about São Luís

the driver and the guide picked us up at the airport at around 8 am and from there we went directly to our hotel in Barreirinhas which we had booked. We make a meal stop etc because the journey takes around 4 hours. then around 1:30 p.m. we are split up to do the activity. already going there is an adventure in itself: with our car in safari mode we cross the river then 1 hour of route to access Lencois. the road is difficult it is like progressing in the desert in 4 × 4. if back problems or motion sickness to avoid absolutely but we, we loved it! then 2 possible paths. and we choose according to our physical condition. the spectacle is magnificent arrived on the spot. and André our guide always takes us further to discover and find ourselves alone otherwise we can also stay swimming .. the 2nd day crossing the river is magnificent. mangrove dunes. Andre stays with us until we return and explains everything. awesome guide

The service is overall pretty good. It is door to door service. They picked me up at my hotel at Barreirinhas and dropped me at the hotel at São Luis. The only reason why I did not give 5 star is that they were more than one hour late than what they have promised. It said 4pm but I was waiting for them right in front of my hotel until after 5pm. I hope it is just one time delay. It is a little bit frustrating not knowing whether they are coming or not. Although I understand it is not possible to pick up everyone at exact 4pm, one hour delay is more than I have expected. I hope them to be clear about this and to state that the pick up time is 4 to 5 pm. Again the service is overall good.

Superb experience! The tour was perfectly organized from start to finish. The 4x4 was just great, thrills because you have to hang on. The view of the dunes is more magical, no complaints, we really have time to enjoy it. The boat super, the stopovers are long and we had time to discover and swim. At the top, I recommend 100% it's to be done! PS: Do not take a guide, it is not at all necessary.

It is overall very good. The logistics is smoother than I thought. Someone picked me up at the hotel on time. I have no complaint.
