Great experience. Lais was extremely responsive (we booked the tour the evening before & she was promptly at our hotel at 9 am), knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. Her car was reliable and roomy for 4 of us, and it made it very easy to see the sights. Her extensive travels, scientific background, and teaching experience all contributed to creating an enjoyable and educational experience. Her English is flawless and her personality sparkling. Would definitely recommend her to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lloyd, Thank you so much for the review! It was a pleasure meeting all of you in Rio and sharing experiences. My best wishes, Lais :-)
The host you need in Rio.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Rav!! Really nice to meet you guys! :-)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, again!!

Our second consecutive day with Lais was even more delightful than the first. She is one of the most gifted, bright tour guides we have ever experienced. Her knowledge and consequent wealth of historical, local and So American tidbits were most fascinating. She tailored our two days to accommodate our schedule,..most appreciated!! If she is available to you, book her immediately!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you again! I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations :-)

A very delightful and knowledgeable person. Took us to all the sights we wanted to see. I will recommend her and tours by locals to all my friends that are planning a trip to Rio. She made our trip a real highlight.

Lais was wonderful and made our once in a life time trip to Rio de janeiro a total success! She is very friendly, very knowledgeable, she knew all of the places to go and when to go, she spoke great english, she was very attentive and flexible to our needs and schedule etc. My wife was really amazed that just about anything or place we passed or asked about she would tell us a whole history and usually a story too, very impressive! Wish we could give her a 6 star rating.I highly recommend Lais for Rio!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Greg and Michelle!! I had a great time with you!! It is always more fun to be around adventurous and experienced travellers like you, that will be happy to go off the beaten track and mingle with locals! I will miss you! All the best, Lais.

Great personality, great tour guide. We had an overnight flight from Lima. Lais picked us up at the airport on time. Lais took us to a local deli for a quick coffee/breakfast. She then took us to a small hidden waterfall where we had a refreshing shower to start our day. From there we tried to Hang Glide but were unable to due to the winds. We walked through the Botanical Gardens (her Biology major is an asset). She also arranged a soccer match for us that evening. Lais, thank you!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Aashiv, Thank you so much for the feedback! We had a great early morning tour and were able to take the best of nature and the views that day. I also enjoyed the day a lot. You are great people! All the best for the family, Lais.
