We were lucky to be guided by Sintia. Besides she speaks fluently all European languages she is a very positive and energetic person who is capable to share Samba energy the way that nobody can’t resists dancing). This excursion made us to see Samba parade from another side, as not only glamorous dancing show but also full of social messages. We were astonished by all details of the costumes and the rage of involvement in preparation.
heart of Rio

Saída para conhecer os bastidores e a preparação do Carnaval do Rio de Janeiro. Estou satisfeito com a prestação e recomendo-a porque os pagamentos desta servem para financiar a formação dos futuros participantes e animadores deste desfile que entrou na Tradição de Rio Do Janeiro. José, Rosa, Maria de Fátima e Aramndo.
