Gisela was a great tour guide for me and my partner. It ends up being a deal for 2 people, considering how prices compare to the day tours offered at the hotel - and you get a private setting instead of a crowded van or bus.

She has done these tours so many times, that it makes it very easy on the customer. She has the ability to cut many of the lines - which saved us hours of time (esp Cristo Redentor and Pao de Acucar). Not to mention that we certainly would have gotten lost going from place to place. She also knows the best places and angles to take photos and is there to help :-)

I highly recommend working with Gisela if you want to get all of the tourist hot spots done in one day - that way you can get back to the beach and exciting environment of Rio - the real reasons to visit.

Gisela accommodated a couple special requests, including visiting Cafe Colombo, which I highly recommend.

As LGBT travelers, we felt save and comfortable.

Thanks to Gisela! I highly recommend her and will be sharing her contact info with friends who visit Rio.

Without a doubt, Gisela well worth the very fairly priced tour of beautiful Rio. I would highly recommend her to any size group. Her ability to entertain, educate and maximize your tour is exceptional.

Gisela showed up precisely on time with a smile on her face in a very clean and new air conditioned car.
Our first stop was Christ the Redeemer. After doing some research we knew that the first train up the mountain left just after 8:00am, we asked Gisela if she could pick us up at 7:30 and head right there so we could be one of the first to the top to avoid lines and people standing in all our photos. When we arrived at the train station just before 8:00 we were told that the train was not running till at least 9:00am because of a mechanical issue. At first my wife and I were a little upset with the set back but Gisela explained this was actually a benefit, "the train ride up is nice but, that means nobody is going to be up there for an hour." She offered to drive up with her personal car and beat the crowds so we could be one of the only people up there. She was right, I think there were 4 other couples till the first train got up. We got great pictures of Christ and the views of Rio are amazing.

Our next stop was the Selaron steps. What an amazing amount of time and effort went into tiling these 215 steps. It was great having Gisela there she was very informative about the steps and even pointed out tiles that had Canadian content and other amazing facts about the steps.

Our 3rd stop was Sugar Loaf Mountain. We really wanted to go and I'm glad we went but for what it offers its over priced. The views were good, and as a tourist you have to go but it's a little bit of a tourist trap. Having Gisela she knew the workers there and she had some kinda preferential parking and we bypassed the ticket line, it was a great time saver. At the top of the mountain Gisela showed us a little trail that was off the beaten path and away from where the other tourists usually go. It was a nice path and not two minutes into the walk were 3 palm sized monkeys playing in the trees above us. If it was not for Gisela's local knowledge we would of missed those crazy little monkeys just like everyone else that was on our gondola.

Our tour continued to Maracana stadium, were Gisela offered to stop so we could take picture or do a tour of the stadium. Ipanema beach was also part of the tour and once again Gisela had lots of knowledge of the demographics and hot spots in the area. Lastly we tried to tour Metropolitan Cathedral but unfortunately there was a protest going on with hundreds of protestors so we couldn't navigate a route to see it.

Once again, Gisela is well worth the very fairly priced tour of beautiful Rio. I would highly recommend her to any size group. Her ability to entertain, educate and maximize your tour is exceptional.

Thank Gisela for everything.

Regards

Austin

Me, my wife, her sister and her niece were in Rio for five days. We were lucky enough to have Gisela take care of all our transportation and tour guide needs for all five days. She did not disappoint!!! Her knowledge of the city and area attractions along with her driving skills in the Rio traffic places her in the elite catagory. Due to a total hip replacement, I had some mobility concerns about standing in long lines and making long walks. With her tour guide credentials, she was able to drive us directly to the attractions and get us in front of the lines for tickets and entry. Her eliminating the long lines and long walks was a huge plus for me.

In addition to her knowledge and skills, she is also well prepared. When my old electrical adapter would not charge my wife's new smart phone, she pulled out a charger and told us to keep it for the duration of our stay. When we arrived at the zoo one day, I discovered my phone had lost its charge. She offered me the use of a second phone with her number already preset. Although she is a true professional is every sense of the word, being in the car with Gisela felt like we were being taken somewhere by a best friend or next door neighbor. From the moment we entered her car at the airport everyone felt relaxed and the conversation flowed with ease. There was much interactive talk and laughter the entire time we were in the car with Gisela.

Thanks to Gisela our trip was a huge success! If we arrived somewhere early or if something was closed, we didn't sit around and waste time. She would immediately switch to a backup plan. We were engaged the entire time we were with Gisela. In summary, If you are going to Rio and you can hire Gisela for your transportation and/or tour guide needs, "Do not pass up the opportunity"! She is the Best!!!

Our tour guide Leonardo was wonderful with details about the synagogues and the Chabad’s with personal notes being a native to Rio. It was our third tour of our visit and his knowledge of Rio still gave us an opportunity to learn more about this beautiful city!

Gisela met us at the cruise port, she was accompanied by a very polite and courteous driver in a very comfortable executive car.
We had a fabulous day touring with her. She was very intuitive to our needs and curiosity about Rio. She was very knowledgable and good fun. She managed to make us understand what life was like in Rio.
We also did a second day with Gisela who then safely returned us to Rio’s airport.
I can highly recommend Gisela and if you are also interested in Jewish Rio, as we were, she incorporates that too in her tour .
I shall certainly be recommending Gisela to my friends in London. In fact my two days in Rio were the best part of my two week holiday, thanks to Gisela!

Do not get the train, get a taxi up instead and buy your ticket. Arrive early to beat the crowds and travel in low season to avoid 40+ temperatures 2 hour waits.

My husband and I had 2 tours with Gisela - A city tour of Rio and a day trip to Petropolis. The best thing about our tours was Gisela herself! It felt like we were with an extremly knowledgeable friend rather than someone we had just met. The tours were extensive but relaxing and we didn't feel rushed at any stage. Gisela made us feel that nothing was too much trouble and did her best to show and explain everything that we asked for even when the traffic/parking conditions were challenging. I am not a great history fan but Gisela made our Petropolis tour fascinating and I was not overwhelmed with dates or facts. It was just perfect! As a tour guide, Gisella speaks excellent English, is very friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating, fun, but most of all, understands what her clients need. Gisela was an excellent tour guide and I would not hesitate to contact her again next time we are in Rio and I highly recommend her to anyone visiting there.

Had one day in Rio and wanted to make the most of it. Gisela was great and gave us a day to remember. We saw all the sights and due to her planning we avoided long ques at both Christ the Redemer and Sugar Loaf. We saw lots more than we expected to in one day and she was very knowledgeable but also very friendly and easy to be with. Her English is great. Once we had paid our deposit to book our day with her I emailed her a couple of times with questions and she allways replied promptly with the information I required. I would definatley recomend her and if we ever get to go back to Rio would book her again.
