Neyla was a wonderful guide. We reserved a one-day tour before we got to Rio. She planned the day to include all the sites we identified. We ended up at Sugarloaf at the end of 8 hours--we then visited this site on our own. Neyla was on time, very safe, full of interesting information, and made our visit a complete... More

Arranged private tour with Neyla about two weeks before travelling to Rio after finding her details here on Trip Advisor. She returned my email within a day and soon we were arranging it, her pricing was very competitive compared to other tour operators and we decided to go with her. After arriving in Rio I was pretty sick and unable... More

Booked a full day tour with Neyla on line from New Zealand a few weeks before we arrived in Rio. We had the most amazing day, Neyla taylored the tour to cover the places of interested we wanted to see, she arrived on time and has a wonderful knowledge of the history and culture of Rio. I was very interested... More

We had only one day in Rio and decided to book a day with Neyla. She arrived on time and tailored the day to meet our interests. We could have never enjoyed the city and been able to see what we did without her help. I highly recommend this tour.

Neyla was booked on 9/28 so she assigned Matilde Fernandes. She is great! She is a walking (driving) history and cultural expert on Rio De Janeiro. She was on time for our meeting and we easily became friends. My talkative wife and Matilde had a continuous dialog of our various sites along with a history. Without any exceptions, we would...

Matilde was a great tour and took us to the places we really wanted to see. We already did some sight seeing so she took us to some hidden gems we didn't know about. She was really knowledgeable on the politicsame and culture. It was definitely worth the money to have a custom tour and avoid the crowds and buses.

We stayed four days in Rio and had our tour with Neyla the first day. This turned out to be perfect as she gave us plenty of tipps (restaurants, hikes, etc.) that were useful the remaining days. Our day tour covered a farmer market where we tasted literally every fruit available in Brazil and other brazilian foods, the favela Rocinha... More

Contacted Neyla on Monday for a tour later in the week, she replied to email within 24 hours (don't forget if she doesn't reply within a few hours she is probably out and about showing people around!) confirming a day tour for the Thursday! Picked up from hotel bang on time in the lobby which was great! Car was a... More

Neyla and her team are simply amazing. We toured some pretty spectacular sites in Rio, and had a ton of fun along the way. The knowledge of the local area, and how to avoid long lines, and beat the traffic was impeccable. Two days after we took the tour, we had a family emergency, and needed the help of someone... More

We rented a locker at GIG and secured all of our belongings for the day outside of departure drop off location. Once we had our day gear in-hand, Neyla was there to pick us up bright and early at 06:45 AM. Neyla's English language is great and was easy to follow as she gave us the tour of the marvelous...
