We were in Rio during the world cup and had initially decided to discover Rio on our own. However, after gallivanting around for 5 days and not seeing as much as we hoped to see we, we called Gisela, and boy, was that a good move! She packed in not just the sights and sounds but also gave us an... More

We booked a day tour of Rio during the World Cup. She was a excellent guide. Gisela was responsive during the booking process and made great recommendations that allowed us to see the major tourist sites and special local attractions, while adjusting to the impacts of the match schedule. She was able to eliminate or minimize our wait time at... More

Thorough knowledge of the city, culture, traffic and points of attractions. The package tour would have taken us... More

Exceeded our expectations and highly recommend. From initial email to the end of our full day Rio tour, we could not have been happier. Through no fault of Gisela, we were late arriving into Rio, Gisela did not mind and accommodated us accordingly. In fact, she used her VIP status skip a few lines (we had missed our initial train...

We booked a private day tour for four people during World Cup with Gisela. From our initial online inquiry, Gisela was responsive to all our questions and willing to work with our tight schedule to create the perfect day tour. Upon our arrival to Rio, she greeted us at our apartment, explained our itinerary for the day, and off we... More

We had one free day in Rio during the World Cup, and wanted to see as many sights as possible without having to navigate public transport or worry about what area we were in. We booked with Gisela online before departing for Brazil, and had several email communications to plan what we would see. On the day, Gisela was at... More

Gisela was our guide for a Jewish tour of Rio. She organized a wonderful tour of synagogues visits and tours, a museum and neighborhoods. She had wonderful stories to share about the Jewish community as well as the city. This tour was a highlight of our trip. She recommended a lovely restaurant for our dinner. And when we explained that... More

We loved Rio de Janeiro but it was not easy to get around without knowing how to speak Portuguese. Gisela is a wonderful guide who was recommended to us. We managed to see whatever we wanted to within the day, with excellent insights on the history and culture of the city. She is very fluent in English and gave very... More
