"Nous sommes passés par Exotic Tour pour faire nos visites et nous avons été ravis. Tout s'est très bien passé du début à la fin, en passant par la favela, le centre de Rio, et Ilha Grande. Nous garderons un souvenir inoubliable de notre voyage! Vous pouvez passer par eux les yeux fermés".

"Chère Reijane, de retour à Perpignan je suis heureux de vous dire combien nous avons appréciés ces cinq jours passés en votre compagnie et celle de Luiza. Vos choix de programmes journaliers, des restaurants, du cabaret au soir de mon anniversaire,  ont été remarquables. La disponibilité de votre équipe nous a permis en quelques jours de découvrir les aspects de Rio en toute sécurité. Merci de vos conseils, de votre écoute, de votre disponibilité. Nous vous embrassons. Mireille et Paul".

"Hello
La visite que nous avons effectuée  était très bien avec une bonne organisation. .
Nous sommes restés le temps nécessaire pour visiter le jardin botanique et la visite de la forêt était agréable avec la vue magnifique à la maison chinoise
La visite de la favela était au dessus de notre espérance car nous n'avons pas du tout ressenti un problème de sécurité. Les gens nous ont bien accueillis. Sincèrement je recommande votre agence et je la mentionnerai à mon retour en France"

"Hi Rejane, I really enjoyed the tour! It was definitely an advantage to go to the Christ Redeemer early in the morning to avoid long queues. It was good to see the most important touristic spots but also the Favela tour  was great to get an insight.

"Dear Exotic Tours team,
I would like to thanks all of you and special the tour guide for the excellent Farwela Rocinha tour on Tuesday November 24, 2015 afternoon.
The tour was the highlight of my 4-days Rio de Janeiro trip.
I would like to thanks the guide, see photo, for the excellent explanation of the purpose, function, organization, difficulties, cleanliness, non-medical treatment, social society, etc. of the Fawela Rocinha.
The tour guide lady answered all my questions but after the tour I have more questions as before what is really a good sign of the visit.
Best regards from Germany"

"Hi Rejane 
Just wanted to drop you a line to say what a great tour  we had with your company . Thiago was a fantastic guide and provided us with plenty of information ,not only on the sights but also on Brazil and Rio in general. A great credit to your company and to himself.If I hear of anybody from the UK who might be visiting Rio in the future I will not hesitate to recommend your company"
All the best,"

We were so looking forward to the tour and it was even better than we had expected - complimentos Luiza! Even my 7 year old son was impressed!"

Colston & Lynne Worral
Mar, 2014

I just wanted to give a bit of feedback on the recent tour we had with your company.  Lynne and I  had the tour of Corcovado and Sugarloaf.  We would just like to say what a fantastic day we had  looking around the beautiful city of Rio.  It was so enjoyable and made even more memorable by   our guide Luiza who was just superb.  Her knowledge of the city was excellent and she was able to answer all our questions.  At all the stops she found time for all of the people on the tour making   sure we all got the maximum enjoyment from the trip.  Not only that she is such a lovely                    likeable person.  Tour guides should use her attitude as their benchmark.                                             

I would also like to say that I think it is brilliant how you yourself started up and decided to use       people from the favelas to act as guides.  If it gives just one youngster a chance to earn a living      then that is a success.                                                                                                                                        I would highly recommend your company to anyone I know who may visit your beautiful city in       the future, and if we ever return exotic Tours will be the only one we use.                                              Once again thank you ever so much for giving us such a fantastic day.                                                

Colston & Lynne Worrall

My name is Sandra Schimanek and I booked one of your tours.

I've heard many good things about your tour in Lonely Planet, the Rough Guide, Frommers and internet sites I've visited. I'll definitely join you for your weekday tour".

Frida Ollas & Johanna Hallner 
Sweden - Oct, 2005

"We were very pleased with your tour, both because you were sympatic and because of your interesting project ... What we particularly enjoyed with your tour, comparing with another operator, was that we walked into the Favela and could exérience the everyday life... it made us feel more comfortable in the Favela and we felt less like tourists. This is of course due to that the students were residents from the community. This makes your tour outstanding! We will highly recomend your tour..."

I just want to say thanks for the tours you arranged for me. I did the tijuca rain forest, Santa Teresa and the favela tour. They were by far the most interesting tours I did douring my 10-day trip to Rio. In fact, I would say they were the best guided tours I have ever had."
