What people are saying about State of Ceará
Frankly if I had to do it again I will take it back. An email sent the day before to confirm the time they pick us up in front of the hotel. In the morning they arrived on time and they come directly to reception to pick us up. Our Holland guide was great. Always available and answers our various questions. Very good provider which is worth it in terms of quality price. Thank you so much.
The beaches and the landscape was great !!!! Just great. Of course, the total journey time was a bit long at around 4 hours. But from Fortaleza the sights are about 160 km away. Attention: The driver cannot be expected to speak in English / German. The passengers may not (Brazil!). So as a German you should be able to use the sign language or a little Portuguese.
Great !! They visited my inn on schedule, the guide Marcelo very funny. And the whole trip was spectacular. And to all this, the phenomenal price !!! ❤️ I'm going to hire them for the return to Fortaleza since Jericoacoara fell in love with me so much that I'm going to stay 10 days !! ✨
Very pleasant staff in the person of Mr Holanda our guide for the bus transfer from Fortaleza to Jijoca, then by 4X4 to Jericoacoara. Everyone is used to it and the service is well established. I recommend. Not enough
She is very pretty but only to stay a couple of days
