We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would recommend it highly! The highlight for us was the climb to the top of Mont Verde. The road is a death defying experience and the views were superb. Also enjoyable was lunch at Grills Baka in Bahia. I would recommend that the guide be provided a microphone or some means of enhancing sound as my wife ended up relaying comments and observations to the passengers at the back of the van.
We were with 10 other people in a van which was nicre. The A/C did not work very well. The driver was outstanding especially on the really scary road up to Mont Verde. The guide did not speak very often during the tour and spoke so softly that most of us did not hear a word he said. He was very pleasant and helpful.
We enjoyed the 6 hour tour very much. Our guide was knowledgeable and spoke English clearly. We stopped at the fish market, vegetable market, fishing towns and many other interesting locations often with fabulous views. The driver handled the trip up and down the winding road to the top of the highest mountain 2,400 feet very carefully and we all appreciated it. The lunch was served family style at a local restaurant and everyone in our mini-bus had a great time. We have used Viator many times and would recommend them to all our friends and family.
