My husband and I (Aussies) chose Neyla because of the great TA reviews. So glad we did! Our day started overcast. We especially wanted to see Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain. If we were on a bus tour I'm sure we would have missed both as they stick to a strict schedule. Neyla reshuffled our tour and eventually we... More

Neyla is relaxed, friendly, and full of local information. She is well known by all the vendors who obviously like her very much. Loved the farmer's market! We did not feel at all rushed, yet had a busy, enjoyable day.

We saw a lot of cultural parts of the city that is not included in most tours. Neyla took us to hang out with the locals. Neyla is awesome and she must know everyone. Thank you so much for making our trip the best it could be.

We were a little wary about hiring a single guide, especially considering the fact that we had to pay her in advance. Boy were we glad we did though! Unfortunately, our time in Rio coincided with a rain storm. Things didn’t look good as far as sight-seeing. Neyla was great in her communication with us the day before the tour... More

We had a wonderful time with Neyla in Rio. She is a great driver and lovable person. The tour with Neyla was well-organized, knowledgeable and enjoyable. Since we had only two days in Rio, we found that it was a good decision to join the day tour to travel around the city. It was our first time in Rio and... More

Booking a tour with Neyla was by far the best decision I made for my Rio trip. It was my first time in Brazil and I was traveling solo but I didn't want to book a large group tour. I saw everything that I wanted to see, as well as, some unexpected gems. Neyla is responsive, prompt, organized, personable, and... More

The reason Neyla is #1 on tripadvisor is because she is simply the best. My husband and I hired her for two days and gave her our extensive list of sights we wanted to visit. Despite working around two days of rain Neyla got us to every place we wanted to see and some great ones we didn't even know... More

Neyla drove us and provided expert and interesting commentary during a day's tour of Rio. Her background as an air hostess contributes to her ability to relate very well with non-Brazilians. She did a great job of selecting sites that met my friend and my interests. She also was flexible and adjusted to traffic conditions so we didn't waste time... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
