Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil

PRIVATE TOUR GUIDE SERVICE - I have become a tour guide after a personal experience living abroad.

I lived in North America for over a year and that gave me a clear understanding of other culture. Adding this experience to some time in Europe has made me understand what are some of the expectations people have when visiting Brazil. It was with this in mind that I started giving personal tours 14 years ago.

My service is designed to meet each customer's interest whether it is a student group, executive group, corporate trips, families or individual travelers.

Private transportation is provided from 1 (smaller cars) to 8 people when we have larger vehicles with a driver. Mini buses for 16/20 people are also one option offered for larger groups.

Coming to South America represents a great challenge for many people, and I've taken as my mission to demystify these fears by building a safe and most importantly a joyful trip for you!

** Rio de Janeiro is the Brazilian city that promotes the world's largest outdoor festival - Carnival There are many ways to take part of this delightful festival. Make sure to have your travel arrangements (accommodation and tours) organized a couple months ahead and let me know if you wish to have a unique experience by taking actual part of it and feel the energy of the festival!

*** 2016 is the year of Rio Olympics games - August 5 -21st Bookings for this períod Will be taken after February 16 when Well have the rates for the period.

A Recent Review of this guide

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.
