My fiancé and I have been looking forward to our vacay in Rio for months. And since it was the first time for both of us, we thought a tour of the city would be a great way to get a grasp of what the City was all about. We had done a private tour in Normandy, which we enjoyed,... More

We had an instructive, adventurous, varied, and wonderful two day private tour with guide Mathilde from Neyla. Mathilde clearly loves and knows her city intimately, and exploring with her was a really great experience. In addition to the usual iconic sights, she showed us facets of local life, the interesting contrasts of the city, beautiful views, and was also a... More

Neyla gave our group of 8 a day tour of Rio. We visited all of the highlights of Rio including everything we wanted to see and do. Neyla was very prompt and very accommodating. One of the highlights of the day was stopping to eat lunch at a restaurant near the tiled steps and eating an authentic Brazilian meal. We... More

We chose Neyla to guide us around Rio because of her excellent TripAdvisor reviews and she more than lived up to expectations. Well informed, cheerful and proud of her city, Neyla turned up at our hotel early and drove us around to all the sights. From Sugar Loaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer to the Colorida Staircase and Rio Cathedral,... More

We contacted Neyla several months ahead of our scheduled arrival date and we shared what we'd like to see and do while in Rio. She was quick to answer our questions and scheduled a day for us. Brazil immigration delayed our cruise ship disembarkation and we were late in meeting Neyla at our hotel. We texted her and let her... More

Once in a while you meet someone, and you feel their passion for what they do. Neyla is one of those people. She enthusiastically showed us her Rio, breezed through lines, showed us all the top spots, local markets and anything we wanted to see. Her English is excellent, her narative was informative, and she was a joy to be... More

I booked this tour way in advance from California. Although I never met Neyla in person, she was extremely helpful in preparing me for this tour, as well as for my experience in Rio. She was very buttoned up and always kind. I had to make a last minute change in the tour date and she was flexible with this... More

I met an excellent driver while on tour (with Cecile). Her name is Sonia Chagas and she's an absolute doll. She drove during my all-day tour and as well provided an affordable transfer from the hotel to the airport when I was leaving. She could navigate the streets! The streets were a mess b/c the city was doing renovations in... More

I contacted Neyla based on TA reviews. She told me that she is not available but she arranged another friend of hers. Total cost for private tour for 3 adults and 1 kid was US $550 in which only Christ tickets were included rest I had to pay. This was anyway made clear to me by Neyla in advance. Overall... More

Dear, I can understand your point but, you had a tour exactly in a VERY busy season, I believe it was on December 26th which was a long weekend in a holiday between Christmas and New Year concentrating 2 million visitors in the area of Copacabana (mainly) + cruise season. I was able to make the reservation to the attractions... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
