Nice town but little time

We were picked up on time at our hotel. The guide Mauricio and driver Dagson were super! The ride was quite long, you can expect a 2.5-3 hour drive. The van in which we were driven, however, was comfortable and along the way we also had a short break at a gas station. When we arrived in Campos do Jordao, we first visited the chocolate factory and waterfall with the guide and then we had 2 hours to explore it ourselves. We found these 2 hours very short! Especially since we also wanted to eat something (afterwards we should have taken a sandwich from the gas station and had to eat it on the way to save time). 3 hours had been better. After 2 hours we drove to the governor's house. As far as we are concerned, they should have omitted this part, instead of that we would rather have had an hour longer in Campos do Jordao. At 1900 we were back at the hotel.
