Hello Edir Luiz,

I am very interested in your fishing trips and am interested in price for two people. I do however, have some limitations. I fly into Puerto Iguacu on June 12th in the afternoon. Is there anyway to get a fishing trip that afternoon (I think we land around 2pm). If not we plan on going to the Brazilian side in Foz on the 14th and want to travel across the border before it gets dark for security reasons. Is there an early morning to late afternoon trip available?

I am also in Buenos Aires for 4 days(roughly June 8-11), and Sao Paulo for 9 days (roughly June 17-25) and am open to a trip around those days as well.

I am open to discuss options, but I leave for Peru in four days so my emails might become sporadic after that.

As per the tour's description, it's not a Jewish tour, but a tour fosused in the Jewish saga in Rio and Brazil.
We visit - the Great Jewish Temple (2nd most important in Brazil); - the old part of Rio, where the first neighborhood grew; - Mr Sauer's Gems' Museum (Mr Sauer proved the existance of emeralds in our country).
Customizing this tour with "Old Rio" is very popular!

I HAVE ACCOMMODATIONS IN Brasilia. WHAT KIND OF SIGHTSEEING TOURS CAN YOU OFFER AND THE PRICES. MY HUSBAND AND I ARE INTERESTED IN ARCHITECTURE, CULTURE, HISTORY.

Rio is where I work as a Local Licensed Tour Guide. If you mean the country's capital - Brasilia - it's out of my professional's acting zone.

We do have a Tour covering Rio's Modern Constructions: Oscar Niemeyer, on top of his 103 years of age lives here and his ideas toasted the entire city.

The architectural experience can integrate Downtown Rio Historical Tour. Culture takes part of all tours!

Hello Carleen,

We are based in Rio de Janeiro, a city that if you have the chance it`s definitely worth a visit. I don`t have anyone that I could recommend in Brasilia, eventhough I know the city quite well. It is a very young city, only 50 years old, the visit should be focused on its architecture as it is the largest human planned city in the world. Let us know if you need any more information, ok? Thanks. Leticia

What is the best type of currency to use in Brazil? I will be in the country for two weeks and plan to take things back home with me! I want to be able to have my currency exchanged before I come to the country so that I am able to buy things freely without having to deal with any sort of issues.
Perry Cord 1/31/2011
Alfred Jader (Private Guide) 4/8/2011:
Hello Perry, if I understand your question, I believe the best way of shopping in Brazil is using the country's local currency, called Real, and being in the country, depending on the city, is relatively easy to accomplish this exchange, just look a shop exchange, and you swap your money and get the local ballots. In my city, Fortaleza, it is quite easy. But what cities you will visit on your trip? So it might be easier to help you.

Leticia Levy and Valeria Radesca (RioPlus) (Private Guide in Rio de Janeiro) 2/3/2011:
Hello Perry,
Brazilian currency is called Real. Tourist attractions and on some touristic neighborhoods like Copacabana you`ll find stores that accept us dollars.
The best is using your credit card which is largely accept in Brazil and you can also use to withdraw money from an atm machine (there are plenty machines all around) and so avoid the big discounts on the exchange process.

Hello
Here we use Brazilian Real. Todays rate is 1 US$ = 1,67 R$. You can easily get money from ATM's throughout the city so no need to bring loads of cash. DO NOT bring travelers cheques as they are very difficult to exchange. Jose

Martha Vasconcellos (Private Guide in Rio de Janeiro) 1/31/2011:
Brazilian currency is REAL.
Under our Legilation, no other currency should be accepted in the National Territory!

I observe that the exchange rates
Any Currency x Braziian Real tend to be:
1. Better if exchanged in Brazilian land in our "Cāmbio e Turismo" Street Shops.
2. "Cāmbio e Turismo" Airports' Shops would be similar - second position.
3. Hotels - thrid position
4. "Purchasing" reais in your home town previous to departure isn't clever!

Important Tip
Traveler Checks are not very welcome. Lines to attend are to be expected when exchanging them down her!
