I spent two half-days touring with Gisela. She is extremely knowledgeable about Rio, including the main attractions, the city's history, and the Jewish community. She drove me around the city and took me to all the major attractions, providing useful information along the way that enhanced my visit. She's very easygoing and pleasant to be around. I highly recommend using... More

My husband and I spent 4 days with Gisela and it was an outstanding experience. Her knowledge of Rio, ability to "read" her clients interests, and perfect English enhanced our visit enormously. She was flexible and welcomed all of our "off the beaten path" requests. Her skills as a tour guide were excellent- she knew the best times to visit... More

We spent two perfect half days with Gisela. She was extremely knowledgeable about the city. She customized the trip to meet our needs and to make sure no time was wasted. She allowed us time in each location, took our photos, even called ahead to arrange a visit to a synagogue that wasn't even opened. She expedited entrances. In a... More

My mom and two aunts were spending a few days in Rio and needed someone to show them around. I worked with Gisela to set up the perfect itinerary for three older ladies. Gisela took them to Corcovado, Sugarloaf, and the Santa Teresa steps, and drove them all around the city all day. My mom told me that she had... More

I contacted Gisela by email before I arrived in Rio and she replied immediately with all the information I wanted. I had very limited time (only in the evenings) as I was there for work so I asked her to organise dinner and a football match. I had a fantastic time with Gisela. We had dinner in a restaurant where... More

She met us at our hotel promptly and we immediately felt comfortable. Her English was impeccable and her local knowledge even better. We quickly breezed through the must-see sights and then she veered off track to show us a special Rio: Santa Teresa and Lapa and its awesome public art, trying out the costumes at the Sambadrome, a peek at...

Gisela was our guide for a one-day whirlwind tour of Rio. She knows Rio well and efficiently guided us to its major sites. She is enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable about her city. She’s also very knowledgeable about Brazilian culture, food, society, politics – you name it. She has a warm, outgoing personality, patiently answered all our questions, and was attentive... More

Had one day in Rio and wanted to make the most of it. Gisela was great and gave us a day to remember. We saw all the sights and due to her planning we avoided long ques at both Christ the Redemer and Sugar Loaf. We saw lots more than we expected to in one day and she was very... More
