    So sad that it's over

    June 18, 2023

    Our trip to the Pati Valley was one of the most spectacular treks of my life. I can barely describe it because it was so magical — with challenging days that made me feel good about myself, amazing sights, with wonderful company, including the privilege of having a teacher join us and give us meditation guidance and yoga in the most perfect spots and in ways that gave the trip an extra layer of meaning. Most of all, our wonderful guide, made the whole thing special for us, providing a perfectly orchestrated tour, beautifully timed and structured to get the most out of the beauty of the valley. The lunches he made for us were very carefully considered, given our gluten intolerance, and they were absolutely delicious. We felt privileged to be in the company of our guide and would not only recommend them highly but we really didn’t want to leave. Thank you, for this special time.

    Only praise for this wonderful team

    April 26, 2023

    Everything was perfect. PlanetaEXO had everything ready for us to have a wonderful immersion in the Pati Valley. They introduced us to this amazing person who is the guide. Energetic, always willing to help, attentive. He certainly made a difference in our trek.

    Brilliant guide

    April 25, 2023

    The guide was impeccable throughout the entire time he guided us. Being a native, he knew how to share various information about the place with us. He was always very fun and responsible. I believe we couldn’t have had a better guide.

    Adriana (Brazil)

    A super good guide and on top an absolute gem of a person

    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!

    Ole Schneikart (France)

    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!

    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.

    PlanetEXO lives the mission

    October 24, 2022

    The experience of doing this trekking with PlanetaEXO was great because I was able to confirm, through the trail, and listening to people, that in fact, PlanetEXO lives the mission that was put in the proposal, and this reiterated our good choice 💜

    In addition to the mission, he had a very careful look when assembling the trekking group, which also resulted in such a rich experience! More than beautiful peeps from the trekking 💜

    About the guide, I felt very privileged to have had this one with us on this trekking 💜

    The care for people, and the environment, with the inclusion of everyone there within the experience, made everything very valuable, I really appreciate it! On some occasions I got scared, and the guide with his eyes already identified and gave me the strength I needed to keep going up.

    Your connection with nature and with the people who were together made this experience very special indeed, and I just have to thank you again! 💜

    A serious company committed to the sustainable development of the local community

    October 22, 2022

    We are very happy to be doing Pati as PlanetaEXO, a serious company committed to the sustainable development of the local community. Either he guides us, he knows Chapada Diamantina as the palm of his hand, or he allows a very safe trail that is well planned in terms of physical effort and, apart from that, gives us a richer experience with all the information on fauna, flora, and all the history of the region.

    Bruno Tosta Abrahão (Brazil)

    A very exciting experience.

    October 19, 2022

    Our guide was very committed to his work and to the place. It was a pleasure exchanging knowledge and experiences with both him and the couple who shared the trip.

    The lunches and dinner were great as well!

    October 9, 2022

    We had a great time, it is an amazing experience! The combination between hiking and relaxing at the waterfalls is nice. The lunches and dinner were great as well, we did not expect that is could be so good! Our guide informed us every time how long the hike would take, how much water we needed etc. I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

    Larissa Cordewener (Netherlands)

    5 stars experience!

    September 1, 2022

    Amazing adventure in a beautiful place. 4 days trekking with the best guide ever: 4 language speaker, really nice and with a great preparation. Thanks to his passion, background of study and long experience he let us discover all the secrets of that amazing valley. 5 stars experience!

    Federico Verri (Italy)

    Its so worth it!!!

    August 31, 2022

    The guide was incredible!! He knew a lot of the area and was also verry enthusiastic about it. He gave us space for our selfs (he was walking and singing) and he told a lot. His knowledge is nice to have with you during the trip. It gives more understanding were you are. I think people should know more about this area. Its so beautiful!! PlanetaEXO helps great with all the questions we had before the trip but also after the trip they were always willing to help. The trip was sometimes hard but really doable. Also there was enough time for rest and enjoying the view. The accommodation and food were very good. The best we have had in weeks. The breakfast lunch and dinner. Also for vegetarian. Its a quiet place to sleep but clean. In the middle of nothing a great room in bathroom. All in all its so worth it!!!

    Roelof van Houten (Netherlands)

    The guide made the tour unforgetable.

    August 26, 2022

    We had the best guide. He did everything for making the tour unforgetable. He also gives you a lot of information during the trek. He even helped us after the trek for finding a hostel in Lencóis during the night. It was amazing!

    Tara Steenackers (Belgium)

    August 14, 2022

    Very good experience with PlanetaEXO. Our host was the best guide I’ve had in years. Attentive, careful and made me seem like I’ve known him for a long time. From 0 to 10, I give 11.

    The guide was a show apart.

    August 10, 2022

    I really enjoyed the experience of Vale do Pati. Booking the tour with PlanetaEXO was unbureaucratic and efficient. The guide was a show apart, demonstrating that he knows the region extremely well and is intelligent in interacting with the group.

    Fernanda Pereira (Brazil)
