Sayuri managed to share a quite complicated time in Brasilian history in a very understandable, easy going way so I could take everything in. Loved the pictures she used to illustrate certain points and the beautiful area we were touring in. Thanks a lot for this educational, but still fun tour!

As a Guide and History expert these subjects interest me a lot. Very interesting point of view of no real Independence but just continuation, something to think about. Overall Sayuri is passionate about her country and history and sharing it in a simple way, which is not easy in such deep and complex subjects. "Se quiserem eu Fico", só que não, apesar de querer, não pode ficar muito tempo... No entanto, antes de regressar mudou o rumo da história. Não sou grande fã de D. Pedro, mas gostei da visita, Parabéns! Congrats, great tour.
