Leticia did a great job for us during our two day tour of Rio. Her English is excellent and she shared a lot of interesting information with us about day to day life there. Highly recommend her.

What a great introduction to Rio! We spent the day with Valeria, guide partners with Leticia. Valeria drove us to Corcovado for the iconic Christ the Redeemer picture, the artsy Santa Theresa neighborhood, and Olympic Blvd to see the activities on the dock and gorgeous murals by Kobra. We didn't want the day to end. The history of each area explored was explained in a way that was interesting and not overwhelming. We also enjoyed trying local appetizers and drinks. Thank you for a memorable day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!

We are so glad that we found Leticia for our short weekend visit to Rio. Due to our schedule, we only had one full day in Rio, and we wanted to make the most out of it. Even though our hotel was a bit out of the way in Barra, she met us early in the morning to make sure we would be able to beat the crowds at various sites. She listened to us and gave her insight to help us prioritize our activities for the day. We had an awesome time with her, and would recommend to anyone!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!!! Hope you had a pleasant return!

Leticia is very professional and has extensive knowledge of Rio. Although Rio can be very difficult to get around, she was able to organize our tour so that we were able to see all the sights we had hope to see. We recommend her highly.

Leticia was very prompt and had excellent English, her driving skills and ideas for a citywide tour were spot on for our tastes. Working in our visit to the Hippodrome with a Nice French cafe. Her vehicle was safe and air conditioned. We would suggest that you mention your meal plan up front as Rio is so large she needs to prepare as we were well into our tour when we suggested where we wanted to eat. Feel safe with Leticia

Leticia was great - we had a one-day adventure in Rio arriving in Santos Dumont in the morning and flying out that same night. Everything went to plan and we saw both Christ the redeemer and Sugarloaf. We even had time for lunch around Copacabana

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

Leticia was absolutely delightful, from the beginning to end. Our tour of Rio was nothing short of spectacular. She showed us everything we wanted to see in Rio really efficiently - no time wasted in long lines - and much more! She took us to the places in Rio we wouldn't have found on our own (heliport, Chacara do Ceu). She knows this city inside out and knew how to maximize the day. She also engaged my very curious kids by introducing them Brazilian history, art and culture. Delightful in every way!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! Um grande beijo a toda familia!

Leticia was a wonderful choice of tour guides. Her English was perfect, having lived in USA. Her knowledge of Brazilian history was extensive. Throughout two full days of touring, her demeanor was always very friendly and accommodating. She is a terrific driver; her automobile is mid-size with good luggage space. In summary, we couldn't have been more satisfied and highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure, thank you!

Leticia is a splendid guide and delightful woman! In one marvelous day, right in the middle of Carnaval this year, she showed us many of Rio's highlights: Parque Tijuca, the Botanical Gardens, the famous beaches (at one of which we watched hang-gliders launch from a nearby mountain and land on the beach), the Sambodrome, and a vast array of Carnaval floats lining the streets where we toured. Her enthusiasm and expertise in "all things Rio" make us look forward to a return visit and another tour with her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm already looking forward for your next visit Martha! As you could see there is so much of Rio that can yet be seen! Thank you for your lovely words! My best wished to you both!!!

This was day 3 with Letitia and our chance to see things a little off the beaten path. The weather did not cooperate so great views from Corcovado were not to be had. She did take us to another spot lower on the mountain & below the clouds (& away from crowds) so we did get some great photos. Loved the drive out to Barra & the stop at the Botanical Gardens. Again, the early start allowed us to beat the crowds & the heat. I have only great things to say about the tours we had with Letitia.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks guys, hope you have a mild winter up there!

She expanded our world with her explanations and professional knowledge. Leticia gave that little extra Panache to make you feel special ,adding places and situations that meet your personal interests.

Rio is an amazing place and we are so grateful to have seen it thru the eyes of our guide, Leticia. She was great about tailoring the tour to our liking. Leticia's knowledge of Rio, quick wit and high energy added to our experience. In addition, she is a great driver, navigating thru torrential rains with ease and confidence. I would highly recommend her.

Leticia took special care to buy our tickets to Redeemer in advance so that we did not have to wait and could bypass the lines. She even gave us tips about which side of the train to sit while on the ride up so that we get the best views. Leticia was with us all the 5 days and made sure we were getting the best of our time. Our families enjoyed her company. We will recommend her strongly for any tours in Rio.

Toursbylocals is so superior to the usual big bus tours that my husband and I will never use any other company if we can help it. Our guide Leticia was knowledgeable,lovely,smart,and spoke perfect English. She took us to the important places before the crowds decended so we saw so much more of the city than we even expected. She is an excellent driver too. You don't want to drive in Rio. We had such a good time with Leticia that we felt we were with a friend. Ask for Leticia!

Leticia was a very pleasant person to deal with. She was on time. Her car was very comfortable and she was able to show us things most one day tourists do not get to see such as the Barra beach area. That was one of my best memories. We had a lovely lunch and by the time she took us back to the ship, we felt like friends. thanks so much. We will definitely use Tours by Local in the future.

We want to thank Leticia for the splendid tour. She gave us lots of background information about Rio and the Cariocas. We were able to see the Christ staute, Tijuaca Forest, Santa Teresa, the beaches and Sugar Loaf in a couple of hours. We got to know the great taste of Acai and could buy Hawaiianas for a very good price thanks to Leticia taking us to these places! We'd definitely love to book a tour with her again. Although it was foggy at Christ the Redeemer, the view on Sugar Loaf was fabulous.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much guys! You`re very welcome for a next trip, there`s a lot more that I`d love to show you! It was my pleasure to meet you both! Hope to see you again!

Brilliant! Best way to see one of the most beautifully-sited cities in the world. Our guide not only showed us the major places (and all hassle free), she knew her city's history and stories. She took us to places she loved and grew up with and introduced us to the local cuisine. A much more personal way to introduce yourself to a new place. We recommend this tour and will definitely be trying tours by locals in other places.
