      "Amazing guide for an incredible hike in Vale do Pati"
      I went on the three day hike with Douglas and I had an amazing experience. Douglas is a very pleasant person and knowledgeable guide, who will explain a lot about the nature, flora and fauna of Vale do Pati. Everything is in order and the entire trip was well organized and good. Furthermore, I was fortunate to be part of a very good group. Last but not least, all food served during the hike was extremely tasty!

      "Trilha em natureza... Que beleza!!"
      PlanetaEXO guys are awesome! They managed my request at best and solved each issue faced (hostel, transfer to capao etc..) to arrange a beautiful trekking. Vinicio is a great person and excellent guide. He really cares about nature and he tranfers the feeling and passion to the members of his group. He explains every step of the tour, he knows many details about plants and animals you are going to meet in Vale do Patì and Capao. He is definitely a value added to the already beautiful experience by itself. I recommend trekking in Pati Valley also because of possibility to spend nights in natives houses, where is possible to meet other people on tour and to know local hosts and their culture. I thank PlanetaEXO and will be glad to do other experiences with its adventures tour project.

      "A wonderful trek "
      I did the 3 days trek to Pati Valley at the end of July, 2018, and it was a wonderful experience. The guide led our group through rainforests, mountains, canyons, waterfalls and meadows with professionalism and a lot of cheerfulness. He seems to know every tree and bird in the forest. He told us many stories about people, animals, places and history of the valley. Besides being a wonderful guide, he is also a wonderful storyteller. I could appreciate more nature and the landscape thanks to his sensitive and clever guidance. I liked the trek and the accommodation at dona Raquel house, with its beautiful atmosphere and delicious food. I highly recommend it!
