“I thoroughly enjoyed the trip – it was easily my best overseas adventure to date! I definitely want to head back to Rio as it felt like that was just the tip of the iceberg spending only 2 weeks there! The hostel in Leblon was amazing, safe and very easy to get to places. It was a perfect destination to set up a home base. All of the Samba teachers were amazing!! Their classes, as well as going out to all the Samba dance nights in Rio have really changed my approach to Samba. You were an absolute pleasure to travel with! Your understanding of Brazilian culture and ability to speak fluent Portuguese meant we had an authentic experience rather than a watered down “gringa” one!”

Experience of a lifetime! “The Rio Carnival tour with Mishel was the most incredible experience of a lifetime: you need to do this at least once in your life!
Two weeks of sun, fun and Carnival to soak up! Mishel’s experience, knowledge, connections and language skills were invaluable and allowed us to live like locals, and gave us access to things that most tourists will never see. It was the holiday of a lifetime - book me in again for next year!!”

"Just been on one of the best trips of my life! The Sambaliscious Rio Carnival tour was amazing! 2 weeks of authentic Samba dance training with Samba Queens teaching our classes, private lessons, Carnival dance school training and street parading. Parading in the Rio Carnival would have to be the highlight for me hands down! Then followed closely by the food, caipirinhas, shopping, beautiful exclusive Samba dance clubs, beaches, sightseeing famous landmarks and so much more! This trip with Mishel is definitely an experience of a lifetime that you simply cannot miss! Thank you Mishel for the most amazing time in Rio, we would not have been able to do so much in such a short time without you!”
