Thank you so much for your kind words Liz! I was very excited to guide you and Arthur because I had such a great time with your friends last year! Paul is an amazing person, I learned so much with him! So of course, I had to plan a great tour for their friends! It was unfortunately about the rainforest tour, but that only means that you have to come back another time! And I'll be here waiting for you with other great stories! Have a great new year!

I'm so flattered by your kind words Allison, that's what makes my job so great, It's a honor to be able to give to people experiences that they will never forget! Stories about my city, warn about the problems that the Amazon is suffering, to taste typical foods of the region, all that combined with a bit of humor and a lot of love in what I do. We had an amazing day, even the dolphins were jumping in joy! Again, thank you so much for everything, if you ever come back to visit Alter do Chão I'll be here to guide you! I wish a great new year!
