What people say ...

alison “We had a wonderful time with our guide on the Yoga Rio Day Tour, I felt like we were with a friend the whole time and was one of the best part of the experiences because his obvious love for Rio was contagious and made me love Rio even more. The SUP yoga was a highlight, too, but I feel like everything we did was a highlight. We also ate at an awesome, delicious, vegetarian/vegan buffet. It was just a beautiful day of beach and SUP yoga and great food and amazing views from Sugar Loaf and great company.”

CindyWeatherhead “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”

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!”

The tour leader was great and the tour was created perfectly, and local guide was also truly nice, good team!! I will go back to Peru for more adventure.”

I liked learning about the local culture and visiting the local community was really neat. The guides were excellent and made the experience wonderful and ensured knew what to expect, had the right supplies etc.

I liked the yoga teachers and give them top ratings, especially how they accommodated a “beginner” like myself. They took into consideration the altitude changes and busy days. The locations had beautiful settings and the food was good overall. The tour was really worth it given the value I got from the awesome experience.”

The organizer made everyone so at ease and the trip was very well planned. The yoga teacher was out of this world and really hands on. Everyone in the group seems to have instantly got on so well and have shared exceptional meals together with lots of laughters at the pousada. It was in an absolutely gorgeous setting, the view from the pousada was completely breathtaking.

I very much appreciate the personalized touch of the 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!”

On top of that there were fantastic daily activities which the whole group enjoyed. I’d recommend travelling with Green Stone Journeys.”

15394_10153090853741291_4377406819819870133_n 2 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 cook was brilliant and the quality and quantity of food was first class and we definitely never went hungry!

The group of people on the tour really made it special for me. It was so nice to go away as a solo traveller and come away feeling like you had made a whole new group of friends! 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!

Luca-christo “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

Luca Puliafito, Zurich Nov 2014


The personal touch was the most enjoyable aspect of the tour. I felt a thousand times more relaxed and whole after a week.

The change was really noticeable and the feeling of being looked after really set me up to have space to nurture myself, which I find hard to come by in daily life.

1524823_10201236367368117_741238960_n 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 can’t 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.

ChristineWalkoThis experience was one of the most amazing and life centering that I have had. Tara is absolutely wonderful and works with people who share her philosophies of wellness.

It was wonderful to be surrounded by happy, positive, uplifting people who generally appeared to celebrate life for a week and I find myself gravitating to those same personalities back at home.
Taking this trip has made me want to pursue more similar types of travel with wellness and yoga emphasis and I would definitely do another tour with Green Stone Journeys again!

Sa-DitteOur tour had a fantastic setting and location and I’m amazed by the place and hope to be back again. The place was extremely friendly and the food was incredible.

The yoga teacher looked after our needs and wishes and planned the classes accordingly. Both her and the classes were perfect and she 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.

PjhdL5agodZnvz5zxqUBzUGdwn7Q43axpWco_ZHjASILoved, loved, loved this tour! the perfect combination of fun and adventure with amazing yoga, delicious food and gorgeous location. I didn’t want to come home!

This tour is perfect if you live in Brazil and want an escape from the city or if you are coming to Brazil for the first time. It’s an amazing way to see beautiful places and travel with people who have the same ideas about travel.
