    Leonardo is a very knowledgeable guide. He would tell you every thing there is to know about the sights in his home town. He will also give you insight about life in Recife especially how the middle class lived and their aspiration to move up. He can tell you their education and health care for the common people. After spending a day with him, you came out knowing a lot about Recife but at the same time appreciate how the Brazian have to struggle to improve their life. Thank you for a great day in Recife.

    Leonardo Ferreira took my wife and I on a most interesting tour of Recife Old Town and Olinda. He is extremely knowledgeable and very enthusiastic! He explained a great deal of the history of the towns as well as stopping when ever we wanted for photos and coffees too! A really nice guy, well organised, prompt and reliable too.

    There was nothing else I could ask for, considering the 5hours freetime I had to spend in Recife. In a very short-time frame, Leonard accepted to pick me up at Recibe aiport, showed me the best of Recife and Olinda, followed by bringing me back to the Recife Aiport. Leo was quick when replying, very punctual, nice and easy going, with full of knowledge about local cultures. He is a certified tourist guide, who has been doing this since ages. His long experience allowed him to become an excellent guides in Recife area. Guess who I will speak next time and I want another tour around Recife.

    Thanks leo once again for spending the sunday morning with me ;)
