Thank You for spending two terrific days showing us all around Rio. You made us feel so welcome in your city, We thoroughly enjoyed all the sights and places of interest that you took us to. In addition, you took us to restaurants that you and your family frequented. The food and the ambiance was first rate.
But, especially we enjoyed spending our two days with you. You have such an enthusiasm for what you do and it shows in your great affection for your city, and the pleasure you take in guiding people around. We felt like part of your family during our time with you. We are most appreciative and really want you to know that your name is often mentioned when I tell friends about our trip to Rio. Sandy and I will not forget you, and although we may not speak often you will remain a dear friend as well as a guide.

Wanted to wish you and Leticia a Happy Passover as well....We are home now three weeks and were busy during the holidays so I just had to sit down tonight and write. I've been meaning to do this for a while.
Just a note of appreciation, and to let you know we hope to see you again.
Your Friends,
Marion and Sandy

Hi Leticia,

I was showing my pictures of Rio to a friend today and telling her how very much we loved your tour and the city. It is truly one of the prettiest cities I have seen!  She said she would really like to fly in and see it some day. I told her about you, and she said she would keep your name.  I would like to come back sometime too and just see Rio and Buenos Aires for several days each.  I was really impressed with the botanic garden. Our group had just a few minutes to walk on the Ipanema beach and stick out feet in the water. I would love to have time just to soak in the atmosphere of the city, shop, and be lazy!
   I really appreciate the great time that you and Eduardo showed us. 
   Thanks again for the wonderful visit!

Nancy Heath

Again many thanks for your tours.  I will send a testimonial via email once I return to the states.
Hope to keep in touch with you.  Best of luck with Rioplus,
Fran and Richard

Hi valeria,

 Just a quick note to tell you again what a wonderful time I had with you in Rio.  I have told everyone on the ship. It was such a fun day. Thanks again.

Dear Valeria,

Many thanks for your New Year's greetings. I have very fond memories of my trip to Brazil last year and I envy you that you are now enjoying the nice and warm weather there. On the other hand it was a strange impression for me to see Christmas decorations in the streets of Salvador de Bahia while people were walking around in T-shirts and shorts.

Anyhow I hope to come back to Brazil some time soon again and would be happy if you could help me then again.

Have a good start into the New Year and a lot of success in your job !

Best regards
Georg Koernig

Thank you.
We had a wonderful vacation and arrived home safely. We loved Uruguay and Buenos Aires. Can’t wait to come back for another vacation. You both were a big help.

We so enjoyed our time with you. We definitely will call if we're ever in South America again---and will refer others to you as well.

If you ever are in Ohio, please let us know.

Hi Valeria,

I just get this email as I am back to my office.
Thanks for everything, Looking forward for future visit.


Dear Valeria and Leticia,

How are you? Hope you are doing well.
Finally everything turned back to normal. 

Everyone of us think often back to the great time we had in Rio. Certainly the trip to Rio was one of our personal highlights.
Maybe we can spent some more time next year!

Take care and best regards,

Markus, Wolfgang, Holger

Hi Valeria
Hope you are well and that you remember us, hopefully the photos will help. Just a big thank you for showing us the wonders of Rio back in January. We had a great time throughout the whole cruise all the way to LA. Now back in London we will be home to Scotland next week. When we are next in Rio we'll be sure to look you up. Our very best wishes.
Graham Intan and Noranna

Olá pessoal,

Boa tarde!
Recebi um e-mail do Tour Conductor do Grupo Tom Ellis e estou muito feliz. Cliente 100% satisfeito!
Parabéns a todos que trabalhamos neste grupinho e se preparem para os próximos ta?


Dear Cacilene

Greetings from sunny London.
The hotels were also very good. The Rio Everest is very well located, with friendly and helpful staff and good facilities. For the price and location I don't think you could do better. Villa Boa Vida 1 is also a lovely location with excellent facilities adn helpful staff. It did not matter that it was a little way from the centre (we managed fine with the taxis) and many people thought it was nice to be a bit further out. Some of the rooms were better than others but on the whole the qualit y was good.
The bus transfer was also excellent - very comfortable and a nice way to travel in and out of Rio. It was very helpful having an introduction from Leticia, the guide, when we arrived too. She was very friendly and helpful and had a good sense of humour - which was needed with our group!
So in short - everything was better than could have been expected. I would certainly recommend you to any other groups visiting Rio and I shall be encouraging others to go in the near future. We would use you again without a doubt.

Thank you again for helping to make the trip so successful.

Kind regards,
Tom Ellis

“Acabo de ter uma reunião com a Juliana da Gol e os elogios para os serviços da RioPlus e do Ipanema Tower foram muitos!
Recebemos cumprimentos não só da Juliana, como de cada um dos hóspedes ao fazerem o check-out.
Comentário de um de nossos recepcionistas, tão logo me viu: "D. Lia, estão todos elogiando e felizes".
Pessoalmente elogiaram a Renata com os serviços do wellcome coffe e almoço e "as meninas" da RioPlus
Um forte abraço em todos e, mais uma vez, obrigada,”

We sincerely appreciate all planning and hard work that went into customizing our vacation - there were many unique experiences!! You all made Rio wonderful and unforgettable, and I must saythat Monica was the best Brasilia guide!!”

“Dear Leticia,
I’m back in Barcelona again. I thank you very much for being such a good guide. Last Friday I was also able to visit the ‘Feira dos Paraibas’ at the ‘São Crsitovao’. It was very interesting and safe as you said.

“Dear Valeria,

Cathy and I would just like to thank you for your hospitality on our short trip to Rio.  Even though the trip was short, it was memorable and it has provided us with an excuse to visit Brazil once again sometime in the future. 
Once again, thank you. Regards,”

“We have been telling everyone what a wonderful time we had in Brazil and they are most envious. We feel you two make our stay particularly fine and we are very grateful to you. YOU’RE THE BEST!”

“Hi Valeria!

What’s new in Rio??? I hope, that your new year started very well and that you had a lot of parties there! :0) Here at Germany it is a terribly cold and a lot of snow is on the ground and I really can’t wait to come back to Brasil!! The plan is to come back the whole October plus one week in November (five weeks) and to stay also some time in Rio again! Would it be possible to see you and Leticia again?
