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 not only saw Christ the Redeemer but also Sugarloaf Mountain both in all their glory. We also saw things we never though we would like the fresh food markets, Selaron Stairs, the Carnivale costumes, art deco paintings, the Metropolitan Cathedral and so much more. Neyla is very knowledgeable and a truly lovely lady who has a passion for her city and it is obvious in her enthusiasm. Do yourself a favour and look no further. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

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 – giving us options and being flexible around the weather. Unfortunately I missed her email around re-scheduling our sight-seeing date, but she still showed up promptly in the pouring rain (which for Cariocas is the worst weather they could imagine!). Through some miracle (or careful planning on Neyla’s part), the clouds cleared up just enough for us to see The Redeemer. She then gave us a wonderful guided tour of the city in her comfortable car. We saw the St. Teresa neighborhood, Selaron Stairs and Sambadrome in addition to Sugarloaf. Not bad for a day of sightseeing! The best part was a random stop at a street market. Got to taste some amazing fruit and see how the locals live. I highly recommend this tour. Neyla really does an outstanding job. Thank you Neyla for the great memories and photos!

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 we found it so beautiful and fantastic!
