On this tour you will learn the history and heritage of Fortaleza. Learn about some of Fortaleza's historical monuments such as the Metropolitan Cathedral, the third largest church in Brazil. Other renowned landmarks include the Jose de Alencar Theater, Museum of Ceara, the Center of Tourism and the fortress of Nossa Senhora da Assuncao.

Then its off to the beach of Meireles, one of the many urban beaches in Fortaleza. With its stretch of beach that surrounds the handicraft fair and jangada (sailing boat) port, Meireles is a location popular with locals and tourists alike.
This is just horrible. They made false promises about the tour. They do not provide an english guide although they claim so in the tour description, even the local office does not have any english speaking staff. This is utterly disappointing. I had a hard time to even confirm my pickup time and venue, as they don't understand a bit of english. The entire tour was described in Portugese, I didn't understand a bit of it. I was shocked and felt I was robbed by the company.
The tour was totally useless. They don't make any stop in important landmarks beach/ cathedral/ central market. They charge a high rate for the tour, but make no effort to make it worthwhile.
