Thank you! It was an amazing trip.

All the flights worked out. Very smooth.
Lucas in Rio was awesome. And the tours were great. The bike tour was dangerous to be on busy city streets. Along the beach was fine. But my 12 year old got bumped by a truck on the busy streets with no bike lane. Got a bruise. Luckily it wasn’t worse. Carlos was great on the Corcovado tour. Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate. Lots of rain and clouds. But we had a memorable time.

Orico was great at Iguaçu Falls. Very knowledgeable and definitely indispensable in the process to get over to the Argentina side of the falls. Again that bike trip was dangerous. The should is not very wide on that highway and my 15 year old was inches from getting hit by a bus. Very scary. But besides that we had a great time.

I would not recommend the bike tours next time. Or at least 18 and older and very competent on a bike if you’re going to do it.

It was fine. Nothing too fancy. Breakfast was good. Wish they had heated the hot tub and had heaters in the rooms. Very cold while we were there.

Dear Scott and Family,

We are so glad to hear that you had a great trip! Thank you very much for your valuable comments. Regarding your comments on the bikes tours, we have already taken measures to improve the safety of these tours. Generally in Rio de Janeiro the bike tour is confined to the bike path, along the orla the lagoon. This incident ocurred near the bike shop when you were returning the bikes. Moving forward, we will ensure that bikes are dropped off at a designated point along the orla to avoid any need of having to bike in traffic.

In Foz do Iguaçu, we've also taken measures, including speaking with park management about the buses and traffic.

Thank you once again and we hope to welcome you again soon back to Brazil!
