A tour of the botanical garden with Lais added so much to our understanding of Rio and Brazil. She even helped us to locate monkeys, tamarinds and toucans among the beautiful plants and trees. Our girls (12 and 8) also enjoyed seeing (and smelling) the species that provide the cooking spices of cinnamon and cloves. We highly recommend Lais!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again, Elizabeth! The job gets even more fun when we have such interested and smart little girls around :-)Hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay with us in Brazil.

Great great Tour! Lais really knows the Rio Botanical garden very well as she studied biology and botanic and as a native of Rio, she grew up coming often to that garden and we could feel her attachment to the place. This made the experience really unique. She has an eye for everything, we would have missed the Toucans in the trees without her ! She took the time to explain everything and answer all questions. We were a family of 5 with kids aged 15, 20 and 22 and everyone loved it. Thanks Lais !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Isabelle! You have an amazing family. It was a pleasure meeting you all :-)

I used Laïs services twice during my stay in Rio. Great time at both occasions. I wanted to visit the Botanical Garden with an expert, she is. She is very knowledgeable about the park, ready to be challenged, resourceful to get your wishes met and won't miss an opportunity to surprise you to make your stay an incredible journey. She has been a wonderful smiling open-minded carioca guide for my visit. A true experience with a carioca as I wanted. Laïs is a person to meet, she'll put a smile on your face.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you a lot for the amazing reviews! It was really nice meeting you in Rio!

Lais was wonderful. She welcomed us warmly at the airport and we spent a lovely afternoon at the Botanical Gardens. It is obvious this is Lais's favorite place in Rio as she knows it like the back of her hand!! She was full of answers to all of our questions and really made it a wonderful experience for my daughters!!! Was GREAT!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Scott! You have a beautiful family! It was a pleasure to meet you in Rio! Please send my regrads to Stacey, Nolah and Cora.

Lais was very friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable about her favourite subject
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks!
Lais was an absolutely wonderful guide and went above and beyond to show me the gardens that she loved and knew so well. The tour itself is amazing and a great idea for any nature lover. The gardens are very well organised and have heaps of interesting parts. I loved this tourand would do it again and again. I definitely recmmend Las, she is lovely, knowledgeable and interesting. She speaks English incredibly well having travelled exensively. Do not overlook Rio's botanical gardens - this tour is awesome!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Alice! Thank you so much for the recommendation! I was amazed with all the experiences we shared, having lived in each others country and working in animals sanctuaries at the same age. I had a great day and hope you enjoyed the favela as well. Best wishes, Lais.
