Gisella was a great host for the Samba retreat! She is Brazilian and has extensive knowledge of the culture and samba and it’s origins. We participated in the 2019 Samba Congress, and best of all, we were able dance in Carnaval in Rio! She gets 2 thumbs up from me! ????

This was probably the best experience in my life. Gisella was the best tour guide I could’ve asked for. She prioritized when it came to everyone’s safety. Made sure to take us to our hotel at most times and would even come and pick us up. She introduced us to some yummy Brazilian food. I will say that we were always busy, which I loved! She took us to the Brasil Samba Congress and carnival! Parading in Carnival was probably the highlight of the trip. Also, we went to Copacabana beach and Ipanema beach. Never seen such beautiful beaches in my life before. We got to see sugar loaf mountain and even went to see Christ the Redeemer. If you love samba this is the samba retreat for you! I hope to do this again one day! Excited for all of y’all that are joining her next year!
