Dear Xavier,

We thought the tour you arranged in Minas Gerais was excellent. We loved Ouro Preto and all the other towns and cities we visited were very interesting and beautiful.

Jiro was an excellent guide with very good knowledge of all the places we visited and he was very helpful in assisting us in various ways throughout the trip. We liked all the accommodation – the final accommodation in the monastery was basic, but that was what we expected, and it was more than made up for by the amazing scenery.

Our only criticism of the tour is that it seemed like we were going backwards and forwards over the same roads a fair bit and backtracking on ourselves. It might have been better for us to start by driving to the furthest point and then working backwards, if that was feasible. For example, one day we drove 4 hours to Tiradentes and the next day, we drove six hours to Caraca (including going back the four hours we drove the previous day). We would like to have spent more time in each place. Overall though, we had a great time and would certainly recommend you in the future and hope to get the opportunity to use you again.

Best regards
Peter and Shobha
