Best tour ever

This was the best tour we’ve ever enjoyed. Our guide Lucemir took us all over Rio showing us amazing sights and telling us the story behind what we were visiting. But the best part was he took outstanding pictures of my wife and I sent them to us the next day. Our only disappointment was we just had one afternoon with Lucemir. We flew home the next day but home to be back soon.
