Interesting tour
This is an interesting tour providing insight into the history of Paraty. The guide spoke good English and was easy to follow and understand. The only criticism was that there was no tour in English during the day and doing the tour in the dark meant we missed some of the exquisite detail of the buildings

Informative and interesting

We took the English version of the tour with Harry. He speaks excellent English and provided us with a wealth of information about the history, background architecture and culture of Pararty and Brazil.

It would have been nice to have entered some of the churches (although I am not sure if that was possible).

Great experience, a very illuminating tour

My tour guide was Michael, and he was fantastic. A thorough knowledge of local Paraty matters, history, architecture and -no less important- local culture and social aspects. I learned a lot in two hours. Fluent (native) english and portuguese spoken too.
Michael did his best to provide me with insight in how local things evolved in time, and how Paraty and Brazil were shaped throughout the years, structurally (local architecture), historically and socially.
A great tour for smart people who are after some real insight.
I highly recommend this tour with no hesitation.
