“WOW, words can’t describe this experience! I choose Fabrice Theveny from Intelligent Travel Solutions Brasil to operate our 18 day, 2014 World Cup trip to Brasil for 65 Australian football fans. Fabrice settled on an itinerary that took in all the highlights of Brasil with a couple of fascinating off-the-beaten track destinations that very few tourists visit. Blumenau (where the Oktoberfest is held), Pomerode and Lagoa_da Conceição were among our favourites. Fabrice was extremely accommodating, professional and reliable – nothing was too much to ask the great man. Fabrice managed to secure us 4 star hotels, high quality private buses, experienced English speaking tour guides and excellent flight connections – all for a very good price. His efforts in organising piranha fishing at our luxurious jungle lodge in the Pantanal was something all of us were very thankful for. So much fun! Our entire group of 65 people saw 3 jaguars, many giant river otters, caimans, anacondas, giant anteaters, macaws, toucans, capybaras, storks – as well as catching 70 piranhas and eating them for lunch afterwards! All of our hotels were of a very high standard – all located in the centre of town close to the main sights. Our private (and very comfortable and modern) vehicles all had in-built toilets, fridges, air-conditioning and heating and were driven by helpful and friendly (and safe) drivers. All and all this was the best holiday many of us had ever been on. A life changing experience for the majority of the group. I can highly recommend using Fabrice Theveny from Intelligent Travel Solutions for your holiday in Brasil. You will have the time of your life! Muito Obrigado! Football Roos Australia”
