Wonderful experience from beginning to end. Milena and Zé were awesome and the same can be said from everyone that was a part of the day. The tour is very worth it and I was incredibly happy to show a bit of my country to my foreign family in this way. Cannot recommend enough!

Our tour guide, Milena, has a sense of humor. I had a question not related to the tour could not google the answer. Milena did by asking her family. Much appreciated.
