Gisela arranged everything for us; pickup at airport, homemade breakfast in bus, reservation for really nice lunch restaurant and a very interesting guided tour in Rio - competent and service minded.

A group of six took a Jewish tour of Rio with Gisela. She was fantastic. Her professional manner, her expertise at the sights and her own personal story gave us an amazing inside look at the history of Rio's Jewish community. Her tour was a highlight of our visit to Brazil. I'd take any of her tours.

Gisela was a terrific tour guide. She was waiting for us at the port and took us on a great tour of Rio. She spoke very well and was able to adjust the tour to accommodate all of our requests.

My mother who is 84 wanted to go down memory lane the last time in Rio was 1968 ! Gisela picked us up right on time 8 am and we had a full day trip out of Rio to Teresopolis and .Petropolis. Gisela's car has a disabled permit which facilitated matters greatly since my mother is a very slow walker... More

To keep it short and sweet Gisela was amazing, everything you should be looking for in a tour guide! She was flexible with what we wanted to do, she was very prompt and was willing to even pick us up from the airport so we can start our tour first thing (she didn't want us to miss anything!) she was...
