Neyla was an amazing tour guide! She knows the city inside and out. She is very knowledgable on when to go to each attraction--for example, "it's best to go here for pictures in the morning so your face isn't shaded" or "I just contacted some people and the line isn't very long at this location, so let's go there". She... More

We had a wonderful one-day tour with Patricia while in Rio. My wife, 5 year old son, and I arrived in Rio for a one day tour while in route to Buenos Aires. Patricia met us at 0700, showed us all the major sites (and more), and had us back to the airport for our 1900 departure. A true professional,... More

I arranged with Neyla for a private tour on our last day of a 2 week vacation in South America. We finished our cruise in Rio de Janeiro and wanted to see the highlights but not with a bus load of people. I researched through TA and Neyla was a top choice both because of the rating and her prompt... More

We had Neyla as our tour guide when we disembarked from our cruise on Mar 29. There were four of us and at first we were a bit worried that her car may not be able to fit all our luggages. Guess what ? She came with a van that could sit 11 and apart from her, there was a... More

My wife and I arrived in Rio at the end of a wonderful cruise from Buenos Aires on the Regent Seven Seas Mariner. We knew that, after spending our first day relaxing at our hotel, the Sheraton on the beach in Leblon (away from the crazy scene on Ipanema and Copa), there would be much to see and too little...

We contacted Neyla before we left the UK. We had a prompt and very friendly response to our enquiry. Neyla arrived on time to collect us from our hotel and the tour began. As the weather was a bit cloudy to start with she rearranged the day so that we could get the best of the sites we had asked... More

I contacted Neyla after arriving in Rio at the end of February and she promptly arranged for Olivia to be my guide for the following day. I asked Olivia to take me places where as a single woman, I would not feel comfortable/safe going. I had an absolutely amazing day - I saw everything I asked to see and more... More

We contacted Neyla through the internet and she provided us with Cristiane as our guide for four fabulous days of touring. Cristiane was wonderful. She was knowledgeable, flexible, candid and fun. We had a long list of things we wanted to see and Cristiane made it all happen, plus added more sights she thought we might like. Seeing Rio through... More

Awesome! Best tour decision--EVER! Thoroughly enjoyable and the highlight of our four-week South America adventure! Words can’t express our enthusiasm for our personal tour guide, Neyla Bontempo! I contacted her online, while still at home, and was impressed with her prompt reply and attention to details of my questions. My husband and I are thrilled that we hired her for... More
