Tour: #295, Private Rio Tour: Oscar Niemeyer in Rio & Niteroi!, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil    view tour
Date: Mar 7/20

We had a perfect day with Neyla. She designed an architectural tour of Niteroi, as requested. On the way to Niteroi, she added several excellent stops in Rio, which added to the entire "package". Her car was spotless and comfortable. Her English is excellent. Her knowledge of the sites we visited was complete. Equally important, she was a total delight to spend the day with. We recommend her without qualification.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much to choose me as your tour guide in Rio! Yes, I was very luck to meet such lovely couple! Now you have a friend in Rio! 5 stars to both of you!!!!! Miss you already! Neyla

Neyla gave me the perfect final day in Rio. She knew the best ways to optimise my experiences in the short time I had available for sightseeing, and she was very flexible to allow me to also do things which I wanted to do! It was a great day - and I felt I made a new friend.

Tour: Private Rio tour: Botanical Garden (Jardim Botanico), Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Date: Sep 26/11

I was interested in conversing about politics and the general day to day issues that concern Brazilians. She did not seem to be interested in doing so. However, Neyla's cute Italian charm was a plus.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: When I was a flight attendant we were instructed not to discuss religion and politics. I've incorporated that instruction for my life; I stand on the safety side of the road! Your point of view is very important to me, I’ll think about how I can discuss that and give some reflection on the subject. Thank You!

Neyla is amazing. If you want to know Rio, she is the best person to go with. She knows the history of everything and more than that, she is very efficient. She knows everybody and will help you. I didn't have too much time on Rio and arrived around 9am at the Rio Int. Airport, she took me from there and we have time to visit all the points of interests I wanted to see. She is very energetic, likes people, very skilled and knowledgeable. She will be the guarantee of your wonderful journey in Rio.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sebastian! Thank you for choosing Rio on your trip. This message is, also, to thank you so much the opportunity you gave me to show you Rio! Your happiness and satisfaction is the result of my success; I tried and I wish reached an successes on it somehow. As I mentioned your joy is very important to me, as your good impression on my service and, I hope to have accomplished my mission. I wish to leave here my appreciation to you, a very sweet and lovely person. THANK YOU! Warmest regards, Neyla

Tour: Highlights of Rio in a Private Day Tour., Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Date: Jan 10/11

Neyla was very knowledgeable with very good communications skills and presented very enthusiastically. She covered the principal sights and areas of interest to us within the extremely limited time frame that we had available (and somewhat reduced by inability to find car parking). The highlight of our tour was the very illuminating and interesting visit to the favela near Ipanema beach.

Tour: Botanical Garden (Jardim Botanico), Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Date: Mar 11/10

Neyla arrived promptly at our hotel with a fellow guide in his large van as her car had broken down on her the previous afternoon and was in the shop for repairs. She was very professional, personable, accommodating, helpful and knowledgeable - a perfect guide for us. At her suggestion, we also stopped at a local fresh fruit and veggie market on the way to the Botanical Garden for some great photo ops and delicious bites of tropical fruits, as well as at the Chinese lookout on the way back. Thanks Neyla!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a wonderful day with both of you! I was very luck to be your tour guide in Rio. Your are a very experienced travel with a lot of knowledge and interest on what you see, what we say, on where we visit! We sure had a great day together! Thank you so much!!!! Warmest regards, Neyla
