Walter WolczekUnited States
Terrible guide. I certainly recommend not to use Dian as a guide if you expect to see the sight of Rio I contacted Diana several months prior to our arrival in Rio and set what we wanted to see. The first thing she asked us was if we had tickets for the refiner, knowing full well that we just arrived by cruise ship. She proceeded to the Corcovado and we spent the next three hours in line getting tickets. She chose to go to the refiner at the same time as other 50 tour buses. Lousy English put u to sleeo
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Walter , as you can see I have 99% of positive reviews here from travellers who believe in my excellent guidance in the wonderful city , we've been to all the points of interest , I understand that it was very hot this summer and you opted to take the tour accommodated in the air conditioning of the minibus , maybe in the middle of the year would be a better time for you to take this tour because of the milder weather , All the best , Diana P.
Joan FrenchUnited Kingdom
Diana was a brilliant guide friendly informative and went out of her way to ensure we saw as much as possible in the little time we had. She took us to all the places we requested and also ensured we saw as much of the city as possible. She catered for my 13 year old grandson perfectly. Would certainly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Joan thanks to you both , I also had a wonderful time with you , it was a memorable day and I am glad you had fun in Rio , All the best , Diana

David StoddardUnited States
A great tour by a knowledgeable guide. We found Diana at the last minute and she went out of her way to show us a great time. She arranged a wonderful tour during Carnival with all the chaos and partying in the streets. She also helped us find our Sambadromo tix and showed us how to get there. She gave instructions on how to enjoy our visit after the tour. She even returned to our Ship to return a painting we left in her car. Diana is the Best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: David , thank you for your great review , I am glad you enjoyed the city together with your wife, you are such a great and enjoyable couple to stay with , very friendly ! I hope to see you two in Rio again ! All the best
Shelley BrooksUnited Kingdom
Diana is the most amazing guide. She picked us up dead on time from the hotel and fulfilled all my wishes. She went over and above the call of duty. A delightful, charming, informative and humourous lady. We had a fabulous afternoon soaking up the beaches and sights. Thank you Diana for a wonderful afternoon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Shelley thank you very much for your kind words , I really enjoyed meeting both of you and showing you around Rio , come back soon !
Betty PollackUnited States
We highly recommend Diana P as a very reliable, flexible, & delightful guide in Rio. Four of us hired her for 3 days--half day, all day tour, & airport transfer for us combined with all day tour for the other couple. She advance purchased tickets for us for Sugar Loaf & Redeemer so that we would not have to stand in line. She knows how to negotiate the system so that her guests don't have to wait. Her English is understandable. She answered questions & gave basic commentary about the major sites.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words Betty , It was nice to spend the day with you and your friends , I look forward to seeing you again in Rio !
Susan HamarUnited States
Great advance communication - especially since We were in the process of changing our flights and it took me a few days to get her our accurate info. she was reliably at the airport and as promised her vehicle was big enough to accommodate an American family of four with plenty of luggage:). Diana was flexible, reliable and accommodating (we changed plans and decided to check into our hotel before touring), all appreciated. Great English. Thank you Diana!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Susan , thank you for your kind words, I am glad you enjoyed the tour and everything worked out for you and your family. Hope to see you in Rio . Diana

Diane is engaging and communicates very well. She was flexible, helped us get through the wait lines quicker, she is prudent and knows which sections to avoid.

Ayelet SofiUnited States
Diana was what everyone could ask for from a tour guide, super professional, knowledgable, clear, and extremely friendly. She always arrived on time to pick us up, and made us feel like we were friends not just her clients. We enjoyed every minute with her and would highly recommend her to anyone interested in visiting rio. An absolutely amazing woman, very caring and patient, could not have asked for anyone better. Thank you so much Diana!!!! We will miss you. Good to know we now have a friend in Rio.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I already miss this family !Thank you for your nice words and I'm really happy that you liked the visit . To be with you all of these days was wonderful ! I hope you return to Rio in a near future , love you all! your new friend , Diana .
Ayelet SofiUnited States
Once again Diana was absolutely fantastic as a tour guide. Arrived on time to pick us up, explained everything clear, and was very patient with any question we may of had. she really made our experience in Rio great, and it was worth every penny. She is highly recommended, and the perfect woman for the job. Could not have asked for a better tour guide, we became very close and became very good friends. Really a very kind woman who does her job from the bottom of her heart. Thank you Diana!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you , nice family! you guys were a gift to me, with all the patience to go to the attractions with all this heat in Rio , I could see always a big smile on your face, more than a guide you now have a Brazilian friend ! Will be always here with open arms to receive you whenever you visit Rio again. A big hug to you all !
Niosha ShakooriUnited States
Oh we all fell in love with Diana from my young kids to my parents. She took such good care of us and accommodating our ever-changing requests. My father left his credit card back at the restaurant and she so graciously returned back through the traffic and heat. She speaks English very well and was very knowledgable of the city. Thank you so much diana!!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Niosha , you have a wonderful family and your kids are adorable , it was a pleasure to show you the city , thank you for your beautiful words. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Ann CalderLakeland, FLORIDA, United States
Diana is excellent to work with, and a very knowledgeable guide. She customized our tour for us (to see the upcoming Olympic sites) and made our 2 days of tours a wonderful, new Rio experience for us rather than a repeat of a standard tour. We would feel fortunate to have Diana as our tour guide on any return trips to Brazil.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ann and Alex , it was great to be with you two on these two days in the city , we definitely had a great time and you now that you will always have a friend waiting for you guys to the next adventure in Brazil ! Thank you! Diana

A wonderful tour to some of the less touristy spots. Thanks Diana!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jane , thank you for your generous comment about our tour I'm glad you enjoyed the hidden gems of Rio and hope to see you again .
Emilie SykesUnited States
Diana was a joy to tour with. She knows Rio! Our tours were timed with expertise to avoid long lines and thus we had more time to spend and enjoy many of the highly visited attractions. Diana was our guide for three days. We also got to see beautiful places that only a local would know. If you are planning a visit and are looking for a great guide with knowledge and historical perspective then look no further. We would highly recommend Diana, she made our visit to Rio unforgettable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Emilie & husband and friends , It was not only you but it was my joy to be with you all these days showing the best that the city can offer to travellers visiting Rio you were lovable and very cheerful throughout the tour thank you for your nice words , Warm regards , Diana P.
Glenn GriffinUnited States
This was day 1 of a 2 day tour. Made it nice to get to Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf during less busy times. Diana was extremely knowledgeable and had great English skills. Rio is a large city and Diana knew how to get around. She also picked a great lunch Churrasco. Wonderful location, great Caipirinha made at the table and wonderful servers. Diana hit all the locations we wanted. Diana took into account our group's walking restrictions, parked close and min waiting. Can't wait ti get back.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I´m glad you and your family enjoyed all the attractions that we visited also enjoyed our typical drink the CAIPIRINHA . My goal it´s to show all the best places we have in the city to visit , Í m grateful that you enjoyed all Diana P.
Glenn GriffinUnited States
This was day 2 of a 2 day tour. Made it nice to get to Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf during less busy times. Diana was extremely knowledgeable and had great English skills. This day was spent at Sugar Loaf and crossing over to Niteroi, which was not only a nice drive but afforded a different view of life in and around Rio, very nice. Diana hit all the locations we wanted, plus some. Diana took into account our group's walking restrictions, parked close and min waiting. Can't wait to get back.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello family , was an honor to show you my city and take you to the most distant areas of Rio that are also interesting to visit I hope that you and your family return to Rio in a near future . Thank you for your nice review , Diana P.

Peter FaustinoUnited States
We had a short time in Rio, and our guide Diana made the most of it. We were picked up at the airport, saw great architecture, several beaches, did a bit of local shopping, went up into Christ the Redeemer, and had a great lunch (including meeting the owner) at a traditional Brazilian restaurant. Things could not have worked out any better. I highly recommend Diana.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Peter and family , Even if you had a short visit in Rio I tried to do my best to go to all the signs and areas of interests I'm glad you liked the barbecue steak house there you had the best quality of meat in Brazil and I'm glad for your nice words thank you and come back soon , Diana P.
Ian LevertonUnited States
Diana was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. The tour was rather hampered by the terrible traffic that made making progress very slow so limited the time to get out and view sights; of course, this was not her fault.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ian , our city it's very big and depends on the business day sometimes we can experience traffic that I always try to avoid , thank for your nice review you're always welcome to our beautiful city ! Warm Regards , Diana P.
Ferne KuhnUnited States
We spent the day touring a Rio de Janeiro with Diana P. She was an outstanding guide. Very accommodating and very caring. In addition to telling us about the city, it's architecture and history she took us to Corcavado and Sugar Loaf mountain. She also took us to the best steakhouse in the city. The food was outstanding and it was obviously a place patronized by locals, not just a tourist attraction. We would recommend her highly to anyone who wants a great tour of the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ferne you can always count on me in Rio the city it's beautifull isn't it ? and with nice customers like you the city becomes even more special , See you soon in Rio ! Diana P.

Diana was the best choice we could have made. She communicated clearly setting up our tour, she was on time, her car is very comfortable ,she provided interesting historical information & varied activities. Every aspect of our tour was excellent as she took care of all details. Although our time in Rio was a short, we felt we saw everything. She is a lot of fun, high energy and spirited. We would book w/her again and recommend her highly to anyone wanting to see Rio. It was worth every penny.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Elizabeth , thank you so much for your nice testimony travellers like. you make our work very pleasant It was a pleasure having you on my tours , A big hug to you all , Diana P.
