Excellent day, the highlight of a short stay in Rio. Enlightening and informative. From the moment we were collected from the hotel we were immersed in Brazilian culture including an easy passage through the iconic sites of Corcovado and Sugar Loaf & many other requested locations. Definitely recommend Gisela as we gained a real feel for the city.

Very informative on any subject, The insight... More

We loved our day with Gisela. She met us off our ship and organised our day perfectly. She managed to organise for us to see all our requested sights, even in Carnival time due to Gisela's perfect knowledge of the potential traffic problems and where to go and at what time to prevent queues and crowds. Before our trip she... More

Disembarked our cruise ship Sunday morning at Rio after a 23 day voyage from Florida. After picking up our luggage we exited the crowded terminal to be met by this wonderful smiling lady. It was like being welcomed by family. What followed was a wonderful all day tour of the city before being dropped off at the airport for our... More

Since we had 3 days in Rio we decided to seek help from experienced tour guides on trip advisor. But none of the tour guides were available at such a short notice ( less than 12 hrs). While all...

She was able to satisfy all of our curiousities. Upon leaving Rio we had a real feeling for the city, their problems and plans for the future, which... More

Gisela is fantastic. I requested a tour guide who could show me buildings of the Architect Oscar Niemeyer. She showed me buildings of his early work in Rio and right up to his more recent work before he died. In addition she described how the city of Rio functions, its cultural heritage, and its history. I would recommend Gisela for... More
