We were in excellent hands!We are so grateful we booked our Brazil trip through Bromelia Rio…Lauren is such a wonderful person and we felt we were in good hands before and during our visit. Right from the initial contact, she was fast in getting back to us and took away the stress and anxiety of visiting a foreign country where we don’t speak the language. She made us feel relaxed and fully prepared for our trip. We were able to visit places only locals would know about – she definitely knows all the hidden spots… Thank you for an unforgettable trip!
The most unforgettable Rio experience!After a week and a half of traveling all around Brazil, and feeling a bit like a foreigner, it was so amazing to arrive and be taken care of by Lauren. Not only did speaking to her make us feel right at home, Lauren is a wealth of information about Rio, Brazilians, and Brazilian culture. She has all the insider information of to do’s and not to do’s, what to see and what to skip, and a bunch of practical information we had not considered. Lauren runs a travel agency and has different tours you can pay to do. Thanks Lauren for the perfect stay, we will definitely be back!
Best Sister’s Trip Ever – (All Thanks To You Lauren). I am not very accustomed to writing reviews, but I think that it is essential that I try my best to provide accurate insight into Lauren Quinn’s operation with Bromelio Rio Travel & Tours. When I find myself reading reviews, I am usually in search of a genuine, honest, and relatable account of events. So….Here we go. Brazil has been my husband’s dream vacation, since his childhood. So it was very little of a surprise that he chose this location for New Years. My husband and I are currently working in Afghanistan and have been for the past several years. Due to many complexities, we are often faced with 1-2 vacations a year, and for some odd reason, New Year’s celebrations have proven to be favorites. Unfortunately, this year we were faced with some unforeseen work issues which prevented my husband from taking leave with me. I ended up spending months going back and forth with my husband about whether I would spend 30 days of vacation time at New Year’s. I was a solid advocate for Vietnam and Cambodia and the deal was almost sealed. My husband came to me with his Ipad and said: “I have found the one & you are going to Rio”. After looking at the beautiful website that was extremely comprehensive as opposed to all of the rest; that was all she wrote….. Initially, I gave Lauren information about myself. I told her what I liked about my previous travels and what I looked to gain during my stay in Brazil. Lauren was awesome to talk to and the connection was instant. She provided a first draft of the itinerary a couple of days later, and I was so impressed. I was able to spend time in Santa Teresa, Ipanema, Iguaçu Falls, and Paraty over a span of 2 ½ weeks. I could never have constructed something so seamless. When I arrived in beautiful Brazil, my hopes and dreams had come to fruition. When I met Lauren in person, I literally fell in love. She has a personality to light up any room. Every tour that Lauren provided was not only safe but also in conjunction with my hopes of gaining the most out of my trip. My hotels were all very premium exactly as described. Every restaurant recommendation from Lauren was also on point. I spent a lot of time with Lauren and in-turn asked for many requests i.e. shopping, groceries, nightlife, etc. To be frank, she never let me down and not once did I ever feel unsafe and/or unsure about my decisions. I have full confidence in Lauren Quinn. I know that I have kind of touched on my experience overall and less about every detail. The main takeaway I am aspiring to present is that Lauren Quinn can accommodate any vacation, whether it be upscale or on a tight budget. She has a true love and admiration for the culture and really wants everyone to experience it. For the first time in my travels, I have made a lifelong friend. I look forward to my many vacations to Brazil by way of Bromelio Rio Travel & Tours
Best trip ever!!
One of the best tour experiences you can get! Beyond the tours and adventures that they offer directly, they will go above and beyond, suggesting local bars, clubs, and restaurants that fit your style and interest. My trip would not have been the same without them.
The Best Way to Experience Rio!Bromelia Rio is hands down the best way to see the city. Offering amazing, immersive experiences of so many different aspects of Carioca life, Bromelia Rio’s tours made me fall in love with Rio. Also, I would be shocked if every single review on here doesn’t mention what an incredible person Lauren is. I honestly never expected to love Rio so much, but Lauren made every day there so fun and vibrant. She has a wealth of knowledge about the city and is great at understanding everyone’s different travel styles. I will definitely be contacting Bromelia Rio every single time I’m in Rio!
Legendary Nights in Rio!Lauren and her travel company are amazing. I did the Carnival Samba School and New Years 2018. Lauren herself is an incredible person and full of life. It definitely isn’t a “travel company, logo wearing” bar crawl style outing. She actually immerses you in the culture so you feel part of the event versus just observing from the outside. After the event is over you are ensured that you get home safely and they stay in touch afterwards giving suggestions for food, bars, and other activities. You really do make lifelong friends. I highly recommend anything from her company.
Exciting and Effortless!
Lauren is the perfect person to turn to when contemplating a trip to Rio. Her enthusiasm for the city and it’s unique gifts is infectious. She listens to one’s needs and organizes a seamless plan to experience the riches of this beautiful city. She had my husband and I dancing wildly with the locals in a samba club on our very first night. She incorporated our interest in contemporary art into her downtown walking tour. The Botanical Gardens were lovely, but the lunch at Parque Lage will be a beautiful memory for a lifetime. She gave us the confidence to set off on our own, each time suggesting a local snack to eat or a drink to sip or a local gift to buy. AMAZING!
Best Local Experience!
I would not have found any of the information I received nor experienced any of the authentic moments I had without the help of Bromelia Rio Travel. And best of all, you made me feel prepared for my trip even before I arrived! Always available to answer my questions, offer suggestions and get me excited for my Rio holiday. Highly Recommended.
