"It was fantastic. The local tour company ran it very well. Picked us up on time, provided a very nice guide…Informal, but well-organised, which is what you want. Chapada itself is beautiful and the weather was great. In an ideal world, there would have been a little more wildlife - but the scenery and swimming are still spectacular. Also really liked Pousada Bagua. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the park was a highlight.So thanks very much and I'd be happy to book with you again." Gideon
