My second time touring with Gisela and I lack the words to appropriately describe how much we enjoyed our tour and time with Gisela. Highly recommend and would book a third tour without hesitation.

We were 2 married couples who were in Rio for Olympics. Had a great full day with Gisela who was a brilliant guide. She took great care of us with a very crowded train trip to Christ the Redeemer. Had the best seafood lunch in Barra and thoroughly enjoyed ourselvles. Highly recommend. Lucy Allison

I can not say enough about her...she is the most informative, patient, nicest person! We booked a tour for the day before the Opening Ceremony in Rio. Gisela was concerned of road closures due to the torch passing by our hotel and arrived well before our start time & waited patiently in the foyer. We had a wonderful day taking... More

Gisela took us on a fantastic and well planned tour of Rio in a day. We had a chilly, rainy day but in spite of that, we managed to see all the highlights and enjoyed every minute. She was knowledgeable about the history and kept the day flexible enough for us to get insights to things we were interested in.... More

We booked 2 tours with Gisela based on Tripadvisor reviews and she is awesome. One day we had 8 hours tour to the Christ, Sugarloaf, steps, and around the Rio. Another day long tour was to Petropolis. We loved them both. Gisela is very knowledgeable, easy going, good driver (very important in Rio). She knows everything about Rio and Brazil... More

We had not one, but two tours with Gisela! The first was an 8-hour tour of Rio and included Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf, Selaron Stairs, Downtown Rio, and more. The second was a day trip to Petropolis, which was the highlight of our time in Brazil! Gisela is a funny and down-to-earth tour guide that knows a ton about... More

Had a long afternoon layover in Rio on way back to US after business trip in Fortaleza. Gisela was brilliant. Collected me from airport and great tour of sights in Rio in limited time. Gisela had organized tickets in advance and was very knowledgable, not only of the major attractions, but also some interesting ones off the beaten tracks. Fluent... More
