Since I'm working remotely and short on time, I needed a quick way to explore Chapada Diamantina in a few days. After a quick Google search, I found Ivan's webpage and decided to write him. The whole booking process, pick-up, and tour guiding were super professional and punctual - which I like a lot. Ivan is a great driver and I felt super safe being in his car. Great experience - definitely recommended!

This 2 day tour is really great, perfect for an express visit to this area of the country, Ivan is a very good driver and great guide, everything was great, i would definitely recommend the 2 day tour because doing it all in just one day can be too much.

We booked a transfer with Ivan to go from Lencois to Valenca to get the boat to Morro de São Paulo. Ivan was very easy to communicate with to arrange the pick up and super professional! His car was comfortable for a long 6hours journey and his driving skills are good despite the difficult roads ! He knows a lot about Brazil and the state of Bahia which made the trip even more interesting :) It s not cheap but if you want to go straight to Morro from Chapada Diamantina without wasting a day in Salvador, I highly recommend to book this transfer with Ivan. He is the only one to do it in Bahia and you’ll be in safe hands !

Ivan is the go-to guy if you need anything in Bahia. He picked me up in the middle of the night from the airport and brought me to my accommodation in town had a very reasonable price. I enjoyed it very much talking to him but in all the time I have been in Brazil I have been able to whatsapp him and ask lots of questions he is very helpful and knowledgeable. I hope to see him again and stay in touch with him for many years to come as I know Brazil will be a place in my life. Sean T

Beyond Ivan’s knowledge of the Chapada Diamantina’s canyons and nearby areas, he takes you back to the source. In this tour, you bond with Mother Nature and its elements: Water, earth, wind... and you come out ever so respectful of nature. The tour is also fun; magic. He is a safe driver, and the only guide in the area to drive all those many kilometers to meet your needs. This tour is a must-take.
