We cannot speak highly enough about this tour through Paraty and the gold trail. Organized as a ship shore excursion from the port, it was a fantastic historical experience. We started with the hike through the jungle where we learned about the history of the area, the local

We booked this tour as part of our world cruise (that unfortunately ended shortly after this stop) and had an excellent time. Michael was an excellent guide and he had communicated with us well beforehand. We had a group of about a dozen folks and Michael took care of us well.

It was great meeting you both, and the others in the group. We certainly packed in a lot in one day...there´s so much to see and do in Paraty with its unique combination of history, culture and nature. Maybe you´ll come back one day and spend more time here?! Thank you again for choosing Paraty Explorer for your shore excursion. Stay safe! Michael

We enjoyed 2 activities: Gold trail and private boat trip. Everything was well organized by Michael! He even was very flexible by switching activities depending on weather forecast. We appreciated all his comments about the history of Paraty and its gold trail! Highly recommended

We loved the Gold Trail day-tour with Paraty Explorer. The history and cachaca tasting made our time in Paraty feel unique, and this was one of our favorite experiences. Bring your swimsuit for the water slide - it's so fun!
