Neyla gave us a fantastic one day private tour of Rio de Janiero. Sugar Loaf Mountain, Christ Redeemer, Santa Teresa colonial neighborhood, Escadaria Selaron staircase, and Metropolitan Cathedral were all great sights to visit. Neyla's knowledge of Rio de Janiero was great. She was very good about pointing out places to take the best photos. She is well networked with... More

I'm in Rio to attend a few Olympic events and Neyla's tour ranked highly among my best memories of my trip. When you complete an 8 hour tour and don't check your watch even once for the time, that's when you know you're having fun. Neyla has an amazing sense of humour and my group of four friends enjoyed every... More

Neyla is a great guide because she understands what people want to see in Rio. For the two of us, it was not only Sugar Loaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer statue, but the buildings and preparations for the Olympic games which would take place in two weeks. Neyla speaks really good English and has no trouble maneuvering through the... More

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

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.
