  • The chapada diamantina we love with all a great natural beauty, a true masterpiece. We couldn't stay long for a more careful exploration. I think that deserves a minimum of 4days.

  • We hired the services of LUCK ADVENTURE through the CVC Turismo de São Paulo for the tours: Tour Serrano, Ribeirão do Meio, Morro do Pai Inácio, Devil's Well, Caves of Lapa Doce and Pratinha and Blue Pit and enchanted well. The places visited are amazing!!! Would visit again! The guides were good, however the services provided in the tour to the Poço Azul and the enchanted well was of VERY POOR QUALITY!!! Because they are places well away from sheets that take more than 2 hours of road and the same time on the way back, I imagined that the transportation would be a van or minibus. However, what was my surprise when I realized that transportation would be done in a car, without headrest in rear, with crowded car. Put 4 tourists in tight car, to face the journey on dirt roads, with numerous holes, which desestabilizava the car and played the 3 tourists in the backseat against each other! Hit my head countless times on the glass of the car and my elbow, which was hurt by a fall in one of the trails, countless times on the side of the car! For me, the stretch of road was EXTREMELY STRESSFUL because I felt a LOT of PAIN and DISCOMFORT! So, my advice to future visitors to the Chapada Diamantina they hire a local tourism agency, to investigate in advance the means of transport to be used not to go through a horrible situation like that passed.

  • The walks on the Plateau were cool and well organized. We had made reservations and all planning already in Germany, and when we got it all worked out. The Adventure Agency staff Daniel is very helpful and did a great service! We recommend to all! Thank you, people! Thanks! Note 10! Gerald and Nicole

  • Amazing national park with great hiking, thousand foot waterfalls that dissolve into mist, and more. There are caves in the area with beautiful formations. Highly recommended.
  • Tons of great hiking trails. Exhausting but very rewarding.
  • The Park is gorgeous! I wish one could just trek freely without guides. They are waaay too expensive and completely unnecessary :P
  • Perfect
  • Super
