    My guide made this trip very special

    March 26, 2023

    The days hiking Vale do Pati with my guide were incredible. He was my guide, cook, photographer, botanist, and storyteller. He made sure to adapt the trip according to my physical abilities, showed me his favorite parts of the Valley, and overall made this trip very special.

    I would definitely recommend this tour!

    March 13, 2023

    The Vale do Pati hike was amazing! It’s such a special landscape and the views are magical! Our guide was great, we laughed a lot together, he knows everything about the area, makes delightful lunches and guides you with pleasure, peace, and attunement! The house where we slept was good, with really very good food and a nice place to stay the nights, I would definitely recommend this tour! Thanks a lot to our guide :)) and Planeto Exo!

    March 12, 2023

    Thanks for putting together a great individual tour for us with a fantastic guide. He is a super good guide and on top an absolute gem of a person! We had a fantastic time with his guidance. He really loves nature and his job and it shows!

    It was a highlight of our Brazilian travels

    March 9, 2023

    What an amazing experience in the Chapada Diamantina! Our 4-day trek was a highlight of our Brazilian travels: the landscapes, the remoteness, the food, the cool paths, the nature. Lucas designed an itinerary based on our requirements and our guide did an amazing job showing us around and telling us about nature/flowers/animals. Everything was smooth and well organized. We wish we could have stayed longer!

    The experience was 10/10 from beginning to end

    March 7, 2023

    Me and my girlfriend did the 4-day hike through Vale do Pati with PlanetaEXO and the most amazing guide. An absolutely amazing experience and easily one of our favorite hikes in the world, and one that we would recommend to everyone coming to Brazil. Don’t go to Chapada Diamantina without trekking through Vale do Pati with our guide. He is super friendly and knowledgeable about the park – and extremely patient while we took a million photos at the amazing viewpoints and waterfalls. He even adjusted the tour to our physical condition and needs. Sometimes we would stay hours at the same viewpoint exploring and climbing around, while many other groups would leave after just 15 minutes. He timed everything so we would be all alone at most viewpoints, which was amazing. And did we mention the incredible picnic lunch he made every day? The homestays were simple and lovely, with amazing home-cooked buffet food every evening and morning. We miss passion fruit juice already. As for PlanetaEXO, the experience was 10/10 from beginning to end through swift communication on WhatsApp. We were provided with all the relevant information exactly when we needed it, and questions were answered within minutes. Thank you!

    PlanetaEXO's pre-trip organization and assistance were excellent

    March 2, 2023

    The three days in Vale do Pati was amazing. Fantastic guide, cozy accommodations with fellow travelers, and a lot of amazing hikes, viewpoints, waterfalls, caves, etc. The organization and help from PlanetaEXO before the trip were really great, so we felt completely ready for the trip when we started it.

    A physical challenge in beautiful nature

    March 1, 2023

    I was looking for a physical challenge in beautiful nature – and this is exactly what I got. Thanks to Lucas, who was always very attentive, knowledgeable and calm, I was able to make the most out of the trip.

    A special and memorable experience

    February 26, 2023

    I had such a wonderful time- thank you to our guide and the team for a special and memorable experience. Excellent communication and attention to detail made every stage of the trek so good. The natural beauty of the national park was a tonic for the senses.

    I highly recommend Planeta EXO

    February 22, 2023

    The trip was very well organized by Planeta EXO, Lucas was attentive to details, and always concerned about making sure everything was going well (and it did!). Everything included in the package was great and all the tips we received from Lucas for the rest of our trip were excellent. We also couldn’t have asked for a better guide. He gave us all the confidence we needed, was very cautious, has a very special relationship with the area, knows everything, has a great attitude, is a good person, and is professional. The guide certainly made us connect even more especially with the Vale do Pati. In addition, we were very well received at the support house, the food was amazing, with delicious dinners and breakfasts. Speaking of food, I cannot fail to mention the unforgettable and appetizing lunches prepared with care by our guide on the trails. I come back home with the certainty that I will go to Chapada Diamantina many more times, and certainly also to Pati. Nature is stunning, invigorating, and inexplicable. I highly recommend Planeta EXO. Thank you very much to everyone who provided us with such special days!

    Amazing trek into the Chapada. Being in the middle of nowhere, meeting almost no one with no phone service for 3 days, it feels really nice !! The guide was incredible! Animal!!! ♥️ it was perfect!

    Very special part of Chapada Diamantina

    February 8, 2023

    The crossing to Pati was wonderful, a beautiful way to discover a very special part of Chapada Diamantina and Brazil. The guides made the experience even more incredible!

    Much more was delivered than promised

    February 3, 2023

    The company was excellent from the first contact with the team until the end of the tour with the guides. The guides not only showed full mastery of knowledge of the region and trekking but also proved to be excellent people who welcomed us and taught us in the best possible way, mixing the theoretical knowledge of the Pati Valley with the wisdom of only those who live in the area could transmit. Much more was delivered than promised. I will definitely recommend Planeta EXO and the guides to my family and friends!

    The guides are a massive asset to Planeta EXO

    February 2, 2023

    We had an unforgettable 5-day trek across the amazing scenery of the Vale do Pati. Our guides had an almost unbelievable depth of knowledge about the entire park and obviously cared very deeply about the preservation and protection of the landscape. They both were incredible navigators and guides. The houses and food provided authentic and delicious stays, which really helped us appreciate the culture of living in the valley. The guides’ efforts in speaking to us in English meant so much, and actually, by day 3 we were able to have full conversations. I think they will only get better at English the more he is exposed to trekkers from outside of Brazil, but they are already a massive asset to PlanetExo!

    Our 5 day trek was brilliant. The scenery was spectacular and the hospitality provided at each of the pousadas was great – kind hosts and very good food. There were brilliant guides and the group worked well together.

    First-class service

    January 27, 2023

    Both my wife and I had a fabulous time trekking in the vale de Pati… we thought that Planeta EXO were professional and everything worked like clockwork. The accommodation and food were superb, our guide was knowledgeable and considerate and nothing was too much trouble. In addition, the service provided Pre and post the trek was excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending Planeta Exo to anybody who is looking for a company that not only gives back but also provides a first-class service.

    The best experience of my life

    January 24, 2023

    It was the best experience of my life. I went with the expectation of trekking in Chapada, but it was far beyond what I could have imagined. And I can say that I was guided by the best professional I’ve ever met! Congratulations Planeta Exo, you were sensational from beginning to end.

    Immersion in nature

    January 24, 2023

    Amazing 5 days… this immersion in nature, the good vibe of the team, the amazing people who welcomed us… as well as the waterfall, and the view,… it was really a second but even stronger experience!!! Thank you so much to our guide, for the relaxed attitude, his sharings, his smile, and his flexibility!!! (What a great change for Cachoeirão por baixo). Thank you to the whole group for the conversation, the silence was so present and divine! the hiking and sharing…  Thank you so much! Great guide! A truly good person.

    Incredible experience that I intend to relive

    January 19, 2023

    When PlanetaEXO was recommended to me, I didn’t think I would identify so much with its proposal. It is a serious company that strictly complies with what it offers. The guide was wonderful, with a lot of experience, commitment, and good energy. It was an incredible experience that I intend to relive.
