Testimonials & Reviews - What people are saying about LUSH Pathways?
After an incredible journey through Brazil with Renata, our group had the once-in-a-lifetime experience of dancing the samba as members of one of Rio's great samba schools in one of the world's great spectacles, the Rio de Janeiro Sambadrome. At 3 a.m., dressed in blue and white ostrich feathers and in front of an audience of 70,000 cheering fans, we danced and sang for an hour. It was a wild sensory overload and remains the highlight of my world travel experiences.
Jon T - United States
Wandering the cobblestone streets of the Pelourinho, dancing the night away in the Pre-Carnaval parades and enjoying all of the incredible food, art, and music on offer in Salvador during my tour in Brazil are memories that I will always cherish... My guide was excellent! She was extremely knowledgeable, well organized, and always cheerful. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!
