We truly love and enjoyed our trip and Analia (our travel agent) made the planning such a wonderful, wonderful experience. I felt kinda guilty because I kept going back and forth with Analia, and sometimes there were long stretches of time that I would not follow up with her. But each time I finally called or emailed her, she was always warm, friendly, patient and very helpful during the planning process. This is before she even knew I would definitely go with her company. Our experience in Brazil was so wonderful and Analia's team, including her partners/vendors in Brazil, were totally awesome. THEY ROCKED!!! We totally wish to go back and it is so good to know we already have a travel planner we can trust in Analia.
We loved the cultural part of Brazil - learning history was really awesome. And we loved the FOOD - yum! Since we are from the Caribbean, a lot of the dishes reminded us of home sweet home. And we appreciated being immersed in the African aspect of the Brazilian culture in Salvador da Bahia. But we loved the Tijuca forest in Rio, too! We wish we had more time to enjoy it all.
