Planning to go on the Estrada Real

I decided to take the whole Estrada Real (Royal Road) using the original tracks (amazingly downloadable from the web!)... Paraty - Ouro Preto and then Diamantina.

Few questions:

1-Is it doable alone? Anyone around here did it?

2-Do I need to change from GS's standard road tires into off-roads? I guess there is off-road involved but nothing hardcore, just hard dust, right?

3-How much time (how long of a vacation) would you take to do it properly? I am not into much sightseeing other than nice views and some pictures, so I will skip most of the historical churches, etc... and I like to ride 5-7 hours a day...

BTW plan is to go alone on lack of company for the challenge... should anyone want in, do let me know. Plan is to do it 2nd half of August.

Ride on!
