A very nice city tour in Rio with Gisela. We saw all that we wanted and some more... Nice and safe drivning despite the heavy traffiic. This private tour is perfectly if you want to see Rio in comfort and in an efficient way. Thanks K-G and Elisabeth

We would recommend Gisela to anyone. She was great to be with, very relaxed and knowledgeable too. We were able to cover many places in one day though we never felt in a rush. Her English was great and her sense of humour too. Thanks Gisela...5 stars! Tim.

Gisela was a great tour guide for me and my partner. It ends up being a deal for 2 people, considering how prices compare to the day tours offered at the hotel - and you get a private setting instead of a crowded van or bus. She has done these tours so many times, that it makes it very easy... More

Even though I lived in Rio for a full year in the past, when friends from the US asked me to show them around I figured I would invest in a professional. Very glad I did - aside from not being that expensive (considering transportation is included) - Gisela helped me plan a logical sequence to the half days activities,... More

Without a doubt, Gisela well worth the very fairly priced tour of beautiful Rio. I would highly recommend her to any size group. Her ability to entertain, educate and maximize your tour is exceptional. Gisela showed up precisely on time with a smile on her face in a very clean and new air conditioned car. Our first stop was Christ... More

I was in Sao Paulo for work, at the end of September, and had a couple of weekends so thought a short trip in Rio on my own would be a great opportunity. After looking into costs the flight was very inexpensive (I flew TAM from CHU to SDU) but what would not be so cheap was a hotel for... More

Gisela arranged a day and a half city tour for us in late August 2014, our first time in Rio. Gisela was very responsive, flexible and good to communicate with prior to our arrival when we were finalising and clarifying details of our tour. She has very good English and is most knowledgeable and informative about the key places to... More

I brought a German family to tour Rio de Janeiro, and Gisella organized the whole tour for us, with a Van for 7 people, driver, and on top of that conducted the tour in German for my friends. Not only the tour was done in German, as she was very knowledgeable about Rio's landmarks details, etc... Highly recommended !

Our first time to Rio and Gisela was a fantastic tour guide. She planned out the whole day from start to finish, explaining the history behind ever place we visited. She picked us up on time and found an amazing spot for lunch. Highly recommend!

My husband, teenage son and I visited Brazil for the first time in June and were fortunate to spend an entire day on a private tour with Gisela in Rio. She is very knowledgeable and speaks English very well. She took us to the major sites and let us see them at our own pace without rushing us through them.... More
