Our group was made up of 3 first-time visitors from Canada. We did not want to visit a favela with a typical "hop-on, hop-off" bus tour. Our tour with Lais was what we were hoping for: a true learning experience. Her knowledge of Rio and the favelas, but especially the relationship she has built with members of the Santa Marta community (including our community guide Salete) made the tour a truly intimate, interactive and informative experience. She answered our questions with much insight . Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you a lot, Leigh-Ann! It was a pleasure to meet you and your friends in Rio! Specialy, discuss world wide educational issues. Thanks for sharing :)
