Edward D.Los Altos, CA., United States
She is very knowledgeable about the city. Although we felt that she was constantly criticizing us behind our back (to her driver). She did take us to all the places that tourist should visit in Rio including the visit to one of the Fabellas (that she insisted we do) but that was unnecessarily scary. Overall she knows her city very well and will show it to you with great passion.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello nice family Davidovits, Ho,ho, I think there was some missunderstanding, remember, portugiese ist not spanish, anyway it was a pleasure being with you guys. Mr. Edward first wanted to go to the samba at night then somehow YOU changed to a tour in the favela,Mam. Davidovits gave the orders to go to visit the comunitie right by entering the car,she do not wanted the samba and it was a relax tour. Please let me know what was the reason for that feeling. Thanks for the feedback, Ethan! Kind regards S

This was the second tour with Simone. We had to be off the ship by 9:00 am and didn't catch a flight until 10:00 pm that night. She was VERY accommodating as we were traveling with someone with mobility issues. It was very easy for her to go with the flow and change plans at a moment's notice. Her driver, Daniel, was fantastic as well. He got us too the airport safely and efficiently after the tour was over. Because of Simone, I feel like our trip to Rio was greatly enhanced. I would do it again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Thank you very much for your feedback, it was a pleasure being with you and the family, come back one day! Kind regards Simone
My 14-year-old son and I enjoyed very much our tour with Simone. She designed a personalized tour that considered all our requests and adapted it along the day to our needs. I also enjoyed talking with her about the social and cultural issues that Brazil currently faces. Thank you for your insights, Simone!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ola Harold, Gracias por el feed back, espero que retornen con la familia completa un dia. Saludos! Simone
