A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour with Simone was excellant and exceded our expectations! She understood what we wanted to see and our limited time to see it. She added two sites we did not know about to the tour and they were so very special. Our tour with Simone was a highlight of our trip to Rio. B Wold
