clientes-special-paraná→ I just want to leave a high recommendation for our guide Amanda, who took my three teenage children and me on a 4 hr tour of Curitiba. She is very knowledgeable of everything from history of the historical city area to an overal knowledge of the entire city and surrounds. She spoke english and Portuguese and was extremely accommodating of my needs, as I have just recently had surgery and couldnt do as much, and that of 15, 17 and 19 year olds. Thank you Amanda and best wishes for all your amazing good projects you have started in the city in the area of sustainability and permaculture. Adrienne from Australia (April 2016).
