    Musician guide

    June 17, 2023

    Vale Do Pati is a beautiful place. We enjoyed our time there and certainly recommend visiting this incredible place to others. Our guide is a kind, resourceful, and caring tour guide. He also has a good sense of humour that makes the journey much more fun. Additionally, he is a mean air guitar player! His exclusive performance of Money for Nothing for us was one of the trip’s highlights.

    Therapeutic hike

    June 9, 2023

    The vale do pati trek was absolutely sensational ! The scenery and hiking was therapeutic whilst being disconnected from the outside world was refreshing and grounding. Our guide was extra thoughtful in accomodating for everyone including dietary preferences which was an incredible detail whilst in the depths of wilderness. He provided good vibes throughout and always had an unbeatable story to tell ! Unfortunately members from our group were unable to continue on the last day, however our guide kindly handed us over to his colleague who guided us to finish the trek. his colleague had studied geology so he was able to educate us on cave formations whilst we did the cave crossing and provided many insights throughout the rest of the trek. He was also a pleasure to hike with ! It was the experience of a lifetime and I would highly recommend both guides to anyone visiting Chapada, I look forward to returning and trekking with them again !

    PlanetEXO and the guide are very attentive

    April 24, 2023

    Planeta Exo and the guide were impeccable from start to finish. The agency was always very attentive, answering all my questions and guiding me, and the guide was extremely professional, attentive, supportive, and concerned about the group. They were knowledgeable about the region and the best at preparing snacks throughout Chapada Diamantina! I was very happy to have made the right choice when I contacted you. I will recommend you to all my friends.

    It was great to spend three days in this incredible nature! We loved it! The guide is such a great person and an excellent guide – we liked to spend time with him and we hope we will meet him in the future.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    Sigrid Tiberghien (France)

    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.

    Paula Angelica (Brazil)

    We were astounded by the beauty

    January 12, 2023

    We did a 3-day trek in the Chapada Diamantina National Park and we were astounded by the variety and beauty of the area. The guide is very knowledgeable about the area, and was generally an engaging and encouraging guide. When the going was a bit difficult (crossing rivers, steep climbs, etc) he personally assisted us to ensure our safety, and was encouraging when one of our friends suffered from vertigo, enabling us all to reach the viewpoints. We really enjoyed our trek – thank you!! I’d also like to note that when our bus arrived late at night the company sent someone to meet us to make sure we were OK, which was so kind and very much appreciated.

    Naomi Maxse (United Kingdom)

    PlanetaEXO made sure to provide everything we needed

    January 12, 2023

    We had probably the 3 most amazing days of our lives at Pati Valley! PlanetaEXO made sure to provide everything we needed so we could enjoy such a wonderful place with no stress: there was a transfer, facilities to store what you’re not taking to the valley, communicating with you at all times, and a handpicked guide! To be honest, at this point we don’t even feel like we should call the host a guide, because, after these three days, we felt we got ourselves a new friend! He is very smart, knows what he is doing, is very communicative, and could tell us things from the geological formation of the rocks from Chapada to old Europe history! Incredibly fun guy that really set a great vibe within the group!
