Daria BliznetsLondon, United Kingdom
Lilian is amazing. She advises us about the different parts of the trip in advance, which let us time to decide what to include in our day. We did both sides and didn't regret. They both worth it, it's splendid and Lilian made this trip so interesting. She told us many facts and stories about falls and surroundings. Everything was organized smoothly and could be adapted at any point. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Daria for the rating, was amazing to receive you here. Hope you had a good time in South America!!!

I'm an experienced world traveler, I've been on many tours in the past and all I can say about my time with Lilian was that it was one of the best experiences of my life. Lilian was kind, professional and knowledgeable. She really brought the Iguazú Falls region to life for me. The falls are a true world wonder and Lilian really animated them for me with her commentary and her passion for them. We shared many laughs together and only hope to see her again in the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ohhh Vincent you are such an amazing person, I feel so happy that you enjoyed our time at the Falls. Impossible not have fun with you. And i have to say the same, we as guides learn in each tour we do, and I learned a lot with you as well!!! Have a great life!
Michael MitchellUnited States
Lilian was a delight. Not only was she knowledgeable about the history and geography of the Falls, but shared many fascinating stories about the local culture. Her pleasant personalty and willingness to structure our tour around our specific interests was much appreciated. Her English is excellent as obviously is her Portuguese and Spanish so interacting with everyone in the region is effortless. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: OMG!!! This is an amazing rate, well happy turists, happy tour guide!!! Was a big pleasure to share my knowloge and spend the day with such pleasant people. Will miss you!!! Have a great time wherever you go!!!
ToursbyLocals were hands on and in constant communication when Lilian wasn't able to tour us day 1 due to illness. Francis took us out to Devils Throat and even though he has been there thousands of times, he was still taking pictures! Lilian joined us day 2 for a fantastic visit to the Brazilian side of Iguazú. We were able to fit in the helicopter, the wet boat trip under the falls (a definite must!) and the walk to all the amazing view points. Thank you both, you made this bucket list trip very special
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We both thank a lot your visit and was a big pleasure be with you.
Richard HirschmanUnited States
Excellent experience. Lilian was great. She is knowledgable of virtually everything in the area. She also eliminates a lot of the time waiting in lines. She personally accompanied us so there was no concern that we were in the wrong place. We have traveled a lot and have had lots of guides. Lilian is right at the top of the list. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: OmG!!! Thank you very much, it was great to spend these days with you.

Lilian was timely, knowledgable and very helpful. She undertook the tour at short notice and we had a wonderful time at the falls. Lilian's knowledge and enthusiasm for the area shone through - highly recommended. The tour itself, including crossing the boarder was made easy.

Harold LevineUnited States
My first time with Tours by Locals - and meeting Lilian. I was impressed by both. There is so much I like about TbL - especially being able to communicate directly with your potential tour guide. Lilian is a Brazilian with close knowledge of both the Brazilian and Argentinian side of the falls. She was prompt, experienced, fluent in English, and returned emails within 24 hours. Her own ongoing interest in, and love for, the falls was genuine and infectious. I'd recommend her without reservation!
Lilian replied on short notice, I liked her as a person, she tried to get us a moon tour, she accommodated our photo time, but... we felt we paid for a very expensive taxi service. We booked full day tour ARG & BRA side for 330US$, she suggested only ARG side (plane was 1 late) - crossing borders would cost time. Tour: Airport pickup, to park,some information,she dropped us at trail,we walked alone. Drove us to boat, we went alone, 2hrs later pick us up, drove us to lunch, then she dropped us at 3 borders
Paul AveryNew Zealand
Lilian was great. From the pickup at the Airport through the tour and then back to the airport all in a day. She was very informative and took us to all the right places. Couldnt fault her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the visit Mr Paul, it was great to share the time with you, showing this amazing place.

Brian FirstUnited States
Lilian is one of the best guides and nicest people I have ever had the good fortune to meet .She really had to do a great deal of driving to enable us to see both the Brazilian and Argentinian sides of the falls but she always had a smile on her face and she shared with us her extensive knowledge of this beautiful natural wonder.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much First Family, was really nice to receive you here and show this amazing place!!!
Helen SmolevUnited States
Lilian was great, very knowledgeable and flexible, a pleasure to be with. She made extra effort to meet our family needs and it was amazing to see both the Brazilian and Argentinian sides of the falls. We couldn't be happier with her as our guide. Thank you, Lilian!
Lillian was superb, picked us up with her driver. Got us smoothly into Brazil and the park. I reccomend her, a professsional, fluent in English and extremely knowledgeable. Geoff Holdway

Lilian was very knowlegable and took very good care of us. We had an issue because of a disturbance in Argentina near the border. Lilian changed the schedule to make sure thay we did not experience any long delays at the border.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Roger. Thank you very much for the visit...was amazing be with you here!!!
Reid AddisPhiladelphia, PA, United States
Lilian is great - and extremely patient! So much time to cross into Brazil but SO worth it. Her knowledge of the Falls, where and when to start, catch the train, places to eat, saved us probably hours of waiting in lines. I definitely recommend spending two days at the Falls to experience both the Brazilian and Argentine sides - so very different. Thanks again for an unforgettable two days!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Reid, it was a pleasure take you around!!!
Kar ChangUnited States
Regina guided us for 3 days, we had a great time. She is very knowledgeable and easy going. Some location visited sequence could be reversed to avoid crowd.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kar Chang, thank you very much for your feedback. Hope all you are having a great year. Imagine that we were together on year eve and now we are almost at the end of the year again. Big hugs for all!!!
Kim TanUnited States
Hello Lilian, We just got back from our South America trip 2 weeks ago and have been busy catching up with stuffs. Thank you for being our guide on the Iguazu tour. Our tour of both the falls in the Brazilian and Argentinian are breathtaking. You are so accommodating and also thanks for taking us to the dinner show featuring many dances from South America. You are the best and don't forget to wear my lucky baseball cap!

Great tour saw all the sights and also some excellent shopping.
Tracy ChouUnited States
We have a group of 30 something people taking South America Cruise Trip and need excursion to see Iguazu Falls. With different schedule from some people, our travel plan kept changing. Lilian was very patient and easy to work with. She set the itinerary to suit everyone's need. I strongly recommend Lilian if you are going to Iguazu.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Tracy, it was amazing be with you here.

Stanley M.United States
There was some confusion on when and where we were to be picked up. Travelers who stay at the Belmond Hotel should know that outside guides typically cannot pick up clients at the Hotel; the travelers must take a hotel shuttle to the National Park gate and meet guides there. (The Hotel can book tours that do not have this limitation.) Other than that, Lilian provided a good experience.
