We had a great day touring Rio de Janeiro with Valeria. She had great suggestions as to what to see and really gave us a great overview of her city in a short time. If we are ever back in Rio de Janeiro we would definitely book another tour with Valeria.

Great 2 day tour with Valeria. On her advice we started early on the second day and managed to get to the Christ the Redeemer statue ahead of the crowd. The view from the statue has got to be of the world's best. She then took us on a great drive through many of the coastal neighbourhoods. Great introduction to Rio. Highly recommend this guide.

We took a two day tour with Valeria and had a great time. The tours were during Carnival and Valeria with her knowledge of the city managed to keep delays with traffic to a minimum. Great guide and we would recommend Valeria to anyone who is visiting Rio for the first time.

We had a great day with Valeria. She was right at the gate to meet us as we disembarked and away we went. Valeria is very knowledgeable about the history of the region and we learned a lot. We visited some beautiful churches, Christ the Redeemer, the beaches, and had a wonderful walk and lunch, sampling the local cuisine. Valeria had lots of ideas of what we should see, but was also very flexible, so if something interested us she was happy to stay a bit longer and allow us to take it all in.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was my pleasure!

Valeria was very knowledgeable, welcoming and friendly. Over the two days she really added to our understanding and appreciation of Rio. She arranged visits to the two major attractions (Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf) at the beginning of each day so we didn't have to queue and also the temperature was more manageable. Her driver was also excellent. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to fellow travellers.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, thank you!! It was my pleasure hope to see you back in Rio!!!

Valeria was an amazing guide and showed us areas of Rio that I am sure very few general tourists would see. If we could give her 6 stars then we would.

Creative, jumped in to understand, solve or alter the unexpected bumps in the tour. Looked after us as if we were most precious clients. Accommodating for sudden stops and photo opportunities. Even helped me look for a gift for home.

Valeria proved to be everything one would want from a professional guide. Her ability to navigate traffic and find parking space at a big range of tourist attractions in Rio, her calm and very informative narrative on places of interest was most impressive. We could not recommend her more highly as a tour guide in Rio.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, it was my pleasure hope to see you again next time!

Valeria is a wonderful guide. She met us at the Rio airport on arrival, then she showed us Rio for 2 full days. Val took us to the key sights before they were crowded so we had a pleasant visit and got excellent pictures. She quickly learned our travel tastes and took us places we really enjoyed. Val made maximum use of our time. We saw much more and did much more than we could of on our own or in a larger group. We are an American couple in our 70's on our 1st Rio visit. Thank you Val!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, it was my pleasure!

Valerie was an exceptional guide to Rio and Propolis. She is very knowledgeable and my wife and I learned a lot. But more importantly she is pleasant, speaks perfect english (5 languages in total), and just a very friendly person to spend two days with. I'd recommend her for anyone traveling here.

Val was an outstanding guide. Our ship cleared customs 3 hours late, but she was right there waiting. Her English was flawless. She was extremely knowledgeable. It was a very hot day, but she went out of her way to keep us comfortable. She listened to our priorities rather than insisting on her own preferences. I would recommend her without reservations. An excellent guide who tailored the tour to our specific needs.

Valeria was wonderful. She arrived early, which allowed us to get up to Cristo early and avoid the Saturday crowds (and took advantage of the good morning weather). She was informative, attentive, and just a pleasure to be around. I felt that I got a good sense of the City, its history, and its people. I highly recommend this tour!

We finalized this booking 1 day before our visit and was pleasantly surprised that we were fully accommodated. We thought this service seemed organic hope that it lived up to expectations; it absolutely did! Laticia was absolutely amazing! She possess an infectious personality that made us felt like long lost friends...we were very tired from many travel connections and Laticia understood our needs and adapted so very well, making sure we maximized our very short stay...love her energy!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Shaun! I didn't forget about the grilled salmon...lol

Valeria gave us a grand tour of Rio and tho' we had been to Sugarloaf and the Christ the Redeemer sites, she gave us very different perspectives of both places: Under the cables to Sugarloaf and up close, and at a heli-pad just below the statue that gives better views of the statue than if you are at the statue - no camera can get everything at the statue plus there are so many people.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!
