A Recent Review of this tour

Ana Maria provided an excellent tour. We were challenged by the rain but she had an umbrella so that we could keep going and see Sugar Loaf. Ana was very knowledgeable gave an excellent history on Rio areas we drove through. We ended the evening at a Samba show. My wife was dancing on stage with the cast at the end of the show and because my wife was in back I could not get good pictures Ana went up on stage and danced too while coaxing my wife up front. She went above and beyond. Great Job
