Leondre, which i dont know if im spelling right, was a fantastic guide. I'm not one for sitting around for tourist sites but it was the perfect amount of time for me. Not sure how leondre was able to keep up the Energy but he did somehow. It was a great day to me!!

The tour exceeded our expectations. Van arrived on time, driver Philippe navigated confidently and safely through traffic and some very bad roads, and tour guide Marianna was knowledgeable, gracious and entertaining. She took photos of us at several stops and emailed them to us. We learned much about Brazil’s history and the sites we visited. When foggy rainy weather made the trip up Sugarloaf unappealing, she got us lift tickets good for a future visit.

Leandro is an excellent guide, has an excellent domain of places, so it is easy to explain anything and tells you the history of each place before arriving, which makes it easier to appreciate it. It is very easy to manage the group and made a good group to be achieved. Highly recommended!
