We had a very short visit in Rio. We are very happy to found her webside www.lisariotours.com and had the chance to book a privat daily tour. She likes and knows her city and via mother language German she knows how to elate her guest for Rio (she speaks English as well) . Also her knowledge is excellent. But the most impressive is her personality ! If somebody likes to have some wonderful hours in Rio, a lot of impressions and a nice guide, he has to book her service.. Also she can give some very good ideas befor the trip to Rio and so she is a important help for the travel planning.Thank you Lisa very much !

“2 Excellent Private Tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

We really enjoyed using Lisa Rio Tours during our visit to Rio. We got private tours that afforded us the flexibility to see many sites at our own pace. Both of our guides were knowledgeable, and we definitely maximized our time by getting their insider tips. Do not hesitate to book their services.

“Absolutely brilliant experience - the best day you can have in Rio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

My wife and I were short on time whilst in Rio De Janiero in late November 2012 and after some research and recommendations we contacted Lisa Rio Tours who arranged a superb and extremely comprehensive private day tour of the city. Lisa was our guide for the day accompanied by the extremely likeable driver, Roberto. Lisa had arranged the day so as to take in Corcovada, Santa Theresa, the Steps of Silaron, The Metroplitan Cathedral, an extensive walking tour of historical Rio including tme for lunch at the amazing Confeiteria Columbus, a visit to the Sambadrome, a vist to Leblon, Ipanema and Copacaban beaches, Sugarloaf cable car and other superb viewpoints and points of interest such as the floating Christmas tree on the lagoon.
The day was extremely well structured, Roberto a superb and patient drver and Lisa a very knowledgable and extremely likable guide who has a comprehensive undertsnding of the city, its inhabitants, places and way of life. In short this was an amazing day and well worth the costs of the private tour. I can honestly state that Lisa is one of the finest guides I have co across in any city and would recommend her and her company to any traveller to Rio. I felt by the end of the day that I had actually experienced much of what I had wanted to experience in Rio and learned a lot about this wonderful city. We were picked up and left back at our hotel and the service provided throughout was first class. You can find Lisa on the web and she was extremely prompt in replying to all contacts.Our tour was 8hrs and featured Lisa as guide and a dedicted driver in an A/C vehicle.

“Great, Knowledgeable Tour Guide!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Lisa was a great tour guide. She took us around Brazil and provided us with amazing facts about the city, facts that we would not have otherwise gotten. She knew a lot about Brazilian history and culture and even contemporary Brazil. The Afro-Brazilian tour was excellent! I would highly recommend Lisa if you want an amazing experience around Brazil.

“A great introduction to Rio!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Thanks Lisa for a wonderful walking tour of Rio de Janeiro city attractions. Your wealth of knowledge about Rio's history was a great way to be introduced to this exciting part of the world. We enjoyed catching the metro into the city and then walking our way from one historical building to the next. It really is the best way to explore the city as you bypass all the traffic congestion. We also very much appreciated your high standard of the English language, allowing us to appreciate your knowledge of the city. Looking forward to experiencing more tours with you when next we return to Rio.

Cheers

Tracey and Mark.
