We are more than happy to give feedback, since it was just fantastic with Wild Brazil exceeding all our expectations. We saw two family groups of the golden lion tamarins. It was nice and easy, and the monkeys were just wonderful. We expected a strenuous hike, but it was only a short and pleasant stroll with two most friendly rangers.
It was also important to learn about the successful and challenging project of the Association, and the role of the Fazenda and other farmers in the restoration of forest and building up the habitat connectivity.
The Fazenda was a great experience of its own: Interesting and most friendly people, superb genuine food to say the least, biologically rich environment with nice birds, frogs and butterflies. The trails around might have yielded even more. The hosts were charming and the atmosphere was really memorable in their wonderful fazenda (we have stayed at wonderful farms also in Emas and Pantanal so that we really appreciated such a quality).

Ricardo was an excellent guide, professional and easy-going. Excellent company, providing us a lot of insight information of the nature, history and culture of Brazil. We loved It.
So, we can only say a humble thank you! We have visited Brazil several times, but a brief visit in the Atlantic rainforest in the Rio area was a surprisingly rewarding experience."
