My Wife, sister-in-law and myself thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Leticia. She has a very engaging, warm personality and her English was perfect. We went to all the main attractions in Rio and she is clearly very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her City. She also took us to a place for lunch used mainly by locals which was very good. She is also a very good, calm driver even though the roads were very busy at times. We can't recommend Leticia and tours by locals highly enough. John, Terri, Pauline

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a wonderful review, thank you sooo very much! It was a pleasure to spend the day with you all!

This was THE best time. Had the National drink, ate typical Brazilian food and best of all, watched local people doing the National dance!!! How lucky I was to have Letti for my guide!!! I hope she had as much fun as I did!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: of course I did dear!!! and remember: we're both inaugurating an evening tour for single travelers and both had fun isn't that great?!

Leticia picked us up right on time and dropped us off at the exact time we requested but in between we had the best tour we could have hoped for. Her driving skills are professional and in Rio that is a big deal. She has great command of English as well as an attitude that made our day very special. Any worries or negative preconceptions of Rio we might have had vanished the moment we got into her car. Thank you Leticia for a wonderful day and for showing us all sides of your great city. Dave & Candy

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is my pleasure to hear that! I know the weather didn't help much but even considering this, it worked out pretty well! Thank you! Hope to see you back!!!

Leticia is a wonderful guide! Knowing that we had just one day in Rio, she planned a day full of so many places to see and things to do, yet we never felt rushed. We visited so many amazing places! Leticia is delightful to be with and we appreciate all she did for us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Hope you had a plesant return! Let me know if you ever consider returning, it will be my pleasure to show you the places missed on this trip!

Leticia gave me an amazing tour, picking me up at the airport and at the end taking me to my ship. She explained well about Rio and it's various areas, showing me the different aspects of it, and it has so many different parts, I was impressed. I experienced some foods and liked what I had. She seemed to understand what was important to me. She was a very careful and skilled driver and one needs to be in the city, from the windy roads in the mountains and the traffic in the center.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ruth, I really appreciate your comments. And I'm happy to know that Rio and myself fullfilled your expectations! Hope you enjoy your cruise up to Portugal! Big kiss!

Leticia was an excellent guide who tailor made the tour to fit her client's interests. She included what we wanted to see and then made suggestions for other sites and attractions. Her knowledge of the city was impressive. Leticia's explanations combined historical aspects with modern day living. Very fluent in English.

Leticia was an outstanding guide. She took us to the Rio de Janeiro Synagogue and gave us an overview of Brazilian Jewish and general history. She also took us to many interesting neighborhoods and sites. She arranges for close up parking so we were able to spend more time at the sites and not feel rushed. Best of all she personalized the tour based on our interests. She was pleasant, personable and a joy to be with.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you lots!

I just can say it was worth to pay a lot of money. But I got such an insider view of Rio de Janeiro. If you like to plan individual things like me, I can recommend Leticia, because she implemented my wishes and searched for suitable things. She really surprised me, and I felt secure during the whole trip. If you like to discover and get to know insider things, you are right by Leticia.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Superb!!!
