John of God Tour Reservations
“Going down to see John of God was on a completely last minute whim, and I had no idea whatsoever how to proceed. In looking at all the Casa guides online, as soon as I saw Steve’s picture, I knew he would be perfect for me….and my intuition was absolutely correct! Steve met us at the airport and immediately took charge of all details, both large and small to ensure that our experience was stellar. Our group was small, (only seven people) all coming from the far corners of the world, but we formed a very tight and fun family immediately. The warmth and care we received from our wonderful guide, with his knowledge concerning all matters related to the Casa, as well as his innate insight into our individual needs made the healing experience both profound and enjoyable. Steve worked with us individually to help craft and interpret our questions to present before John of God, ensuring that our most important issues would be addressed and questions answered. I would definitely recommend using Steve as a Casa guide to get the very most out of your trip to Abadiania” -Martha Leonard, San Francisco, CA, US

The US State Department recommends that people coming to visit the State of Goias (Abadiania is located in Goias) get a yellow fever vaccination. However, you will not be visiting the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. Abadiania is a small town located 1.5 hours from Brazil’s capital, Brasilia. Yellow fever is very rare in this part of Brazil. Most people coming to Abadiania do not get vaccinated. The choice to get vaccinated or not is up to you. No other immunization is needed in Abadiania and no immunization is necessary to enter Brazil (not even yellow fever). If you decide to get vaccinated, this must be done at least 10 days before arriving in Brazil, the vaccination lasts for 10 years. In the US, doctors in your area offering this vaccination can be found on www.cdc.gov/travel.
