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

Travelling to Brazil 1st time for non-Brazillians can be an intimidating experience, so a good value tour guide to give you an overview of Rio and it's major sites is money well invested. Gisela and her driver (when needed) were both utmost professionals that clearly are passionate about their city and passionate at ensuring their clients receive a good look... More

He is a very friendly and knowledgeable gentleman, always answering questions and giving us a lot of information. We got to meet Gisela at one... More

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

She was able to eliminate or minimize our wait time at... More

We were in city during world cup, had only one day to visit all the city. Had three choices, do it on our own, get a pre-packaged tour or get Gisela. I am glad we chose the last one. She was amazing. Thorough knowledge of the city, culture, traffic and points of attractions. The package tour would have taken us... More
