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 won't be disappointed!
