Karen and I booked Denis for the day tour to Campos do Jordao. Unfortunately we could not complete all things from our city tour the previous day. Denis graciously offered that we cover those first before heading to Campos. Although it is a long drive Denis provided excellent and interesting commentary during the day. Denis again was an excellent guide and great company. We both highly enjoyed our trip and have no hesitation in recommending Denis. He is an extremely personable and knowledgeable guide.
