          Best Guide Ever
          Michael and Nicole Roy went with Gisela Vayda on a private tour for 2 days . Plus Gisela picked us up at airport on the 23 April . On 24 and 25 April she took us on extensive touring of Rio . Including my home where I lived for the first 4 years of my life . She had her daughter Victoria to help her . She was EXCELLENT I would say BRILLIANT and we covered such a wide range of Rio de Janeiro . She had a had unbelievable knowledge and spoke excellent English. She made our trip to Rio one of the most memorable trips I have ever made . She the transferred us to our cruise on Saturday the 27 April . We will never forget her or Victoria . Highly recommend her in fact would say you are missing out by not using her . Nicole Roy

          Overpriced, entry tickets not included
          Misleading, you are just paying for the travel to the statue where you only get around 40 minutes. The tour guide also spoke minimally about the view because many others were going to Sugar Loaf mountain after and would see similar views, so again using this tour option I didn’t get an actual tour. It is very overpriced considering this. I opted out of the journey back in order to spend more time at the statue and enjoy the cafe. I asked the operator to consider these factors and offer a partial refund but they said no. Yes the terms are listed in the T&Cs of the tour but for the price you would think entrance is included, something that is normal in most tours. My original booking was also cancelled as they didn’t have availability. They didn’t let me know until the evening before either so I had to re-arrange my plans last minute. I wish I just cancelled now!!!!

          Poor description tour
          The driver Valdemar and guide Sabina were great, very friendly, and helpful. However, we purchased this tour by the title: " Corcovado and Christ Statue," but they never mentioned this is JUST the ride to the place. It does not include any entrance. So DON'T buy this if you want to go to the Christ. This is a poor description of what you will get. The title should have said: TRANSPORTATION ONLY to the Sugarloaf & Christ! You either buy a full package with transportation and entrance included or get this transportation ticket and be willing to pay additional there.

          5 plus stars for Efraim!!
          WOW!! We had the most wonderful, meaningful and informative day with Efraim. He was so knowledgeable and passionate about the Jewish community in Rio. He gave us a detailed history and walked us thru current Jewish life. We loved visiting the synagogues, the Holocaust Museum, the Jewish community center and the Jewish museum. He shared personal anecdotes of his life in Rio. His partner, Gisela, was a wonderful enhancement to our tour. We left feeling so emotional about our experience and this community. Highly recommend Efraim!!

          Don’t hesitate to hire Gisela!
          Gisela was an incredible guide! She went above and beyond. We had a custom itinerary that she followed perfectly. We had more time than we expected, and she filled it with awesome experiences we hadn’t planned. She also went out of her way to point out interesting things about Rio along the way. Our group couldn’t speak Portuguese, and her English was exceptional. We highly recommend hiring her if you’re wanting to tour Rio!

          The guide you want to get where you’re going
          I had such a great time on this tour! Aside from how cool Christ the redeemer is close up, and the experience in general, my guide Gabriel was fantastic. He was engaging and passionate to share his vast knowledge and knew everybody who worked at the sites.. Everyone was excited to see him and talk to him and that made the experience feel much more personal and welcoming. He puts a lot of care and effort into making sure that you have a good time and that the people around him are happy. It was a very nice personal touch and a bright spot on a rainy day.

          Great but cut full tour short, no partial refund
          Guide was great. The first half was great but the second half is problematic: 1 Macarena stop (30+ mins drive for 3-5 mins in the blaring sun without shade for a statue, and you can't even see inside the stadium) shouldn't exist. 2 We were intially denied entry into Sao Bento (which the inside is the ONLY reason to visit. There is no explanation here. 3 Seleron streets were closed (as they could've/should have) anticipated, and we werent even able to park somewhere to walk and see it. Even lunch is an extra $25USD (EXPENSIVE)and for carnivores and people with large appetites (buffet) which I am not, so had to scramble to find something in 45 mins and initially, thanks to closed places and incorrect orders, did not! They should ONLY be selling half day tours during Carnival week. And NO macarena! This is a money grab. I would have rated the half day 5 stars.

          Excellent day trip in Rio
          We booked CariocaTropical for a half day trip in Rio, because we were very limited in time. Gisela and her driver organized anything in an excellent manner, they picked us up at the hotel and we were on time at the airport! Thank you Gisela for your sophisticated outstanding tour! Matthias

          4 days exploring Rio de Janeiro
          Before and during our 4 days tour of Rio de Janeiro, the communication with Gisela has been excellent! She is a pleasure to be with. Has a vast knowledge of the city and shares her knowledge in such a natural way that we actually remembered it all. We felt very safe with her and her excellent drivers during our 4 days together. Needless to say we enjoyed exploring Rio de Janeiro with Gisela!

          A special morning with Efrom
          Efron was an amazing guide. His depth of knowledge was extraordinary. He was always informative and always had a joke or anecdote to keep the conversation going. I would say he was one of the best tour guides we experienced in South America.

          Great tour!
          Really insightful tour. Our guide really knew his stuff and he managed to get us in to several places despite it being a Jewish holiday. It's a lot of driving!

          Excellent Jewish tour of Rio
          The guides Gisela and Efraim were excellent and brought the Jewish community to life. There was no way we could have done it on our own.

          Terrific introduction to Rio, great guide!
          Sergio met us at our hotel and took us from Copacabana Beach into downtown Rio and back. Really got the feel of the city riding the metro, walking the city streets and learning about the history, architecture, people, food, and culture. Sergio tailored our walk based on our interests and willingness to see even more than we expected. He was a relaxed, personable, and informative guide. Highly recommend!

          Incredible
          Just the best! Amazing energy and aura from Victoria really made our experience even sweeter. My son & I traveled very far just for this attraction & im so fortunate to have found such a great tour company to make our visit absolutely magical. The views were breathtaking. Our photos are flawless! Taking the tour first thing we were on the first bus up. It’s just my son and I in our photos. Exactly what we wanted! Definitely a must do tour with this company.

        A group of 6 girlfriends just spent an extended weekend in Rio. We arranged a full day tour and lunch with Gisela. She was fantastic! It was like having another girlfriend spend the day with us laughing, singing (yup-singing) and sharing their beautiful history. You cannot go wrong with Gisela! She’s an A+!!!

        We did the full day in Rio with Leonardo during Carnival. Everything went great and there were no problems with the crowd. We even got to see the parade floats being prepared for the evening parade. The views from Corcovado and Sugar Loaf are amazing. Leonardo made sure that we got as much of the Rio introduction as is possible in a 1 day stopover.

        Dear Gene, it was our pleasure to show you Rio. Fantastic that you've been able to see the floats and was not so crowded, because usually during Carnival time the city gets completely crowded. Best regards, Victoria

        We threw Gisela a bit of a challenge. Her typical full-day, private city tour includes Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf. We scheduled both for the following day and asked her to modify and show us other interesting things that a visitor might not necessarily see. She delivered without "skipping a beat". Among the many interesting things she showed us, she took us to the "Carnival Experience". We thought we knew what Carnival was. We were so wrong. The behind the scenes tour of how it all comes together was very interesting and greatly added to what was a wonderful day. Her knowledge and English are great. If you choose her, you will not be disappointed. Advice from seasoned travelers

        Thank you so much for this lovely comment! There's a lot to see in the city that goes beyond the regular attractions and Gisela is definitely an amazing and very knowledgeable guide who enjoys to be challenged by our visitors. Regards Victoria.
