    The two guys hosting the tour were friendly and enthusiastic about there job which always sells it for me. Overall a good day out even though I was the only English speaker amongst a group of Brazilians so Portuguese was the main language of tour but to be fair they translated the main bits for me. Left them a tip so I guess that sums it up in a nutshell
