I would not recommend Air France to anyone even though there is a price advantage. The service is absolutely lousy and the flight attendants are extremely impolite. On reaching Sao Paulo we were, although we had booked for private transport, picked up by my partner's brother. She is of Brazilian stock. Hotel was excellent but we did not see much of Sao Paulo because we met family only. Iguazu was absolutely wonderful and the falls are really something. Manaus was good and our sojourn at the camp in the Amazon region was lovely. By the way in Manaus we had lunch at a very dodgy looking small restaurant but I have never had such excellent fish as I had there. 10 out of 10 for this restaurant.
Rio was lovely and the tour guide Alain was extremely helpful and here too we were taken to the places Mariza, my partner, wanted to go to. Shopping was top on her list and Alain satisfied her wishes,
Buzios is a charming place and I am actually thinking of relocating to Buzios.
Will be going to Buzios again on Saturday December 3rd and back on 19th and this time on BA (best always) or BA (bloody awful) I choose the former.
I wonder whether you could help when I think of relocating.????
