Morretes: Full Day Colonial Town Tour from Curitiba
- Pickup available
- Duration: 9 hours
Venture by train through the Atlantic rainforest, with its unique flora and fauna, to the historic colonial town of Morretes, nestled at the foot of the Serra do Mar mountains in the state of Paraná. From your Curitiba hotel in the morning, you'll be shuttled along some of the best preserved rainforest in southern Brazil, to the foothills at the Serro do Mar where Morretes awaits. You'll explore the historic center of the town, strolling amidst the quaint 18th-century architecture, old colonial houses and churches, and through the craft market. You'll stop for lunch on the banks of the Nhundiaquara river to feast on the region's traditional Barreado, a meat-dish cooked slowly in a clay pot for several hours, then served over rice, with fruit, and a side of breaded fish. No Brazilian experience is complete without a taste of its wholesome cuisine!
Overall the trip was great but the train I didn't give it five stars is because when I was given the train ticket the seat was in the section where no English announcements would be given. I wad told by the tour guide I'd need to pay in another $R200 to get a seat in the English section. I then produced my voucher and another attendant arranged a seat in the correct section. I also felt that the Antonino visit was a bit rushed. The tour guide and bus driver were excellent

The show was amazing!!! The dances and the food was great!!! But the transfer from the hotel should be improved. I waited in lobby of my hotel one hour for the pick up. We late to the show. When we came the already started and we seat very far from the stage. There was a lot of food, even too much, but the beverages was in additional charge. Why?

Smooth pick-up and drop off at my hotel on the brazilian side. All you can eat buffet with barbecue churrasco was good, but the highlight is definitely the Latin American live show with multiple folk dances from different countries. Host spoke portuguese most of the time, but it didn't make our night less special
What a unique experience. Amazing. From reception at the hotel, then upon arrival at the station. The tour doesn't even need comments on how wonderful it is. The tour and restaurant choices blew me away.
Mr. Total our tour guide was excellent and served us above our expectations. Curitiba is very beautiful. I thank God and you for this service of note 10.
Highly recommended. The buffet dinner is really good, lots of varieties. The 8 countries national dance is great and fun.
This experience was spectacular! Exiting, funny and beautiful!
