Testimonials & Reviews - What people are saying about LUSH Pathways?
I've been all over the world with all sorts of tour guides, and I can honestly say that Renata and LUSH Pathways was the best experience I've ever had while traveling. Her attention to details, knowledge, and laid back and personable style was a perfect combination for a tour leader. By the end of the trip I didn't consider her my tour leader, but one of my friends. If you are considering a trip to Brazil, PLEASE use Renata and LUSH Pathways...you won't be disappointed!
Heath C - United States
Hola Renata... I just wanted to thank you for all of your attention during my trip. Without your help it would had been a very complicated experience. It shows that you have a big knowledge on this side of the continent, and that you have the know-how to make things work and make it interesting for the travelers. The schedule, visiting places, night stops, and the whole organization during the pre-carnaval at Salvador de Bahia was done beautifully. I hope one day, you come by this part of the world so I may have a chance to repay so much kindess dedicated to us.

Special Departures
The greatest chance to participate in some of the most unforgettable events in Brazil. These tours are the unique departures that happen during big celebrations or special events like Carnival, Music Festivals, Sport competitions or any other event happening in Brazil or promoted by LUSH Pathways.

These packages usually run independently, without the presence of a Tour Leader and with a minimum of 1 traveller. It can also run as a Group Tour, with a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 10 travellers plus a Tour Leader. Occasionally, we may consider adding more travellers depending on the event and location, up to a maximum of 15 travellers per group plus a Tour Leader. Please read more about Group Tours and Independent Tours to know how these styles of tours are operated.

If Final Payment applies to the Special Departure chosen, it must be paid to the Tour Leader on the first day of the tour.

It is a nominal proportion of the funds that are required to run the tour.
