    "I thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing pace of the tour and doing yoga twice a day is a treat! I enjoyed the yoga classes with a routine and also allowing to explore more advanced postures. The meals were excellent and the cooks tried very hard to accommodate the vegetarians. We really enjoyed the Beach House, it had everything we needed and was clean, the location was great!"

    "We had a great time! The tour, location and people were so lovely and we are so glad we spent these six days with you while we were in Brazil. The yoga teacher was perfect for the tour, I enjoyed the yoga classes very much and the tours during the day were lovely. The location of the house was perfect with nice accommodation and very good food with a lot of variation. Thank you so much for the perfect yoga retreat!"

    "I did the yoga day tour in Rio with Tara and it was amazing! The organization was very quick and professional. The pick up at my hostel, the yoga at the beautiful parque lage, the dinner at a delicious vegetarian restaurant and sunset at Sugarloaf was just perfect! It's a nice way to discover Rio from a different side. "

    "Tara is a great Yoga teacher and person, I enjoyed my day with her a lot."

    "I attended the six days yoga retreat in Ilha Grande and everything about this trip exceeded my expectations. It was simply one of the best experiences I've ever had. Tara, the organizer, made everyone so at ease and the trip was very well planed. Luciana, the yoga teacher, was really hands on and her Thai massage session was something out of this world.Everyone in the group seems to have instantly got on so well and have shared exceptional meals together with lots of laughter. It was in an absolutely gorgeous setting and the owners and the staff were really lovely too. The view from the pousada was completely breathtaking. We had about two-hour yoga sessions in the morning and in the evening at the beautiful yoga studio, over-hearing the sound of nature and gentle waves.Tara even looked after us when we got back to Rio after the retreat. I very much appreciate her personalized touch in her tour organization and we had lots of fun together! I would definitely recommend retreats with Green Stone Journeys to anyone and would certainly love to go myself for another adventure with them in the future!"

    "I found myself traveling to Brazil for business and fortunately was able to take an extra week to spend in Rio de Janerio in October 2013 (the selection below did not allow me to go back that far). I found Green Stone Journeys online and was able to work with Tara to create an individualized itinerary.In short, the whole trip was AMAZING and extremely reasonably priced. I spent time in both Rio and Paraty which was perfect for the week. All the accommodations were excellent. I started every morning with yoga and I cannot say enough about both Daniel and Arianna as yoga teachers.While in Paraty, Wado was my guide and he was full of so much positive energy and life stories. Tara and Daniel were my primary guides while in Rio and though I was traveling alone, I felt like I was with a friend for much of the trip. In summary, it was a life changing adventure and I would highly recommend Green Stone Journeys! I can't wait to book another adventure with them."

    "From the moment I spoke to Green Stone Journeys, I knew that my personal journey with them was going to be fantastic and I couldn't have been more right! I wanted more than just a day, so they were able to customize a 10-day experience for me. Everything was arranged for me from the moment that I stepped off the plane in Rio. From accommodation to transportation, tour guides and yoga teachers, I couldn't have been more pleased.Everyone was very professional, had great local knowledge, and paid attention to all of the small details that make a trip special. Part of my experience was a day tour in Rio that started with yoga in Parque Lage, then a trip to Sugar Loaf Mountain, lunch, and a final stop for the best acai that I've ever tasted. I left relaxed, refreshed, and feeling like I had a community of new friends. I couldn't recommend this tour experience more highly!!"

    "This tour was great, so unique and original, I was in Rio with my friend and we wanted to do something different and we found out about this tour it was perfect! We met with the yoga teacher in the morning, and did some very relaxing yoga in Parque Lage and we were able to walk around and just enjoy this beautiful place in the middle of the city for awhile and soak it all in. The yoga class was really calming in the beautiful park and it felt good to have great instruction because we have only done a little bit of yoga. It was great to hear her stories about Rio and all the tidbits she had to offer too. We then went for a really delicious lunch, vegetarian with so many options and it seemed to have many locals and not so many tourists so it felt like a real hideaway place. Then we went up to the Sugar Loaf mountain, and what a sunset! It really was a perfect day and tour and enjoying Rio in this relaxed way really made it special by the end of it all. Thanks so much for a great tour Green Stone Journeys! and we really recommend it if you are looking for something different and with a great yoga teacher who knew how to take care of us along the way!"

    "The yoga teacher was great she quickly gaged our levels of experience and went at the perfect pace to ensure we felt comfortable. She was friendly, approachable, and very calming with her instructions.The beach house was lovely. Spacious, clean, well kept and presented. The air-con worked well and the rooms/bathrooms were cleaned daily which added to the holiday/hotel feel, which was appreciated.The cook was brilliant and the quality and quantity of food was first class and we definitely never went hungry! They made a lot of effort in checking which dish we may like for the evening meal and ensured we had bottled water and fresh juice in the morning. The group of people on the tour really made it special for me. It was so nice to go away as a solo traveler and come away feeling like you had made a whole new group of friends! I really enjoyed the conversations about life, cultures and learning about Brazil. I will never forget the beauty of the island the sounds, sights and how it made me feel emotionally. I was able to forget about everything back home and just be! The whole experience was brilliant it really was a journey of discovery!"

    "The experience with Green Stone was fabulous. This tour was a good mix between discovering amazing places with friendly guides and discovering by yourself. All the yoga teachers I met during this experience were highly qualified and offered a practice that gave me the opportunity to get in touch with my own body and to release tensions in some specific areas. An amazing masseuse also allowed me to heal a chronic pain I was suffering from during several months. What else can I say? Everything flew, everything was perfect and made this Brazilian experience unique."

    "As a custom tour experience with GSJ, the programs were adjusted for my preference and for weather, and it felt like I had someone to help me personally organize the things I wanted to do and accompany me along the way. The most I enjoyed about my experience were the yoga sessions. All of the instructors were fantastic and have inspired me to reignite my practice long term. I cant say enough about how amazing the sessions were.The local guide was also very knowledgeable and friendly and locations were beautiful with great breakfasts. The optional massages were also fantastic, it seems GSJ knows how to find all the best people! I would recommend GSJ tours and travel with them again."

    "Our tour had a fantastic setting and location and Im amazed by the place and hope to be back again. The place was extremely friendly and the food was incredible. The yoga teacher, S, looked after our needs and wishes and planned the classes accordingly. Both her and the classes were perfect. S was really good at thinking about our needs in terms of what our bodies were able to do and adjusted the yoga practice to it. Also it was a pleasure being around her for the tour, she has a really nice and loving personality."
