Great private tour, nice to see the city with a local. It was good to go to sites without large numbers and spend the time you want at each location
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey, Sharon! Thanks for choosing my tour. It was very nice having you guys with me on a cloudy day in Rio. This city has lots of things to be seen, indeed, and walking is just the best way of getting to know a place.

Rafaela was the perfect guide. She took us to all the main attractions in Rio. We could spend as long or as little time in each location as we needed. We were not rushed around it was an absolute pleasure to be shown around Rio by Rafaela.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey, John. It was my pleasure having you and Gordon today. Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to show you my beloved city. Who knows we can meet up in Edinburgh? That would be great! Take care and enjoy RIO as much as you can. See you!

Rafaela was superb! Eight of us came to Rio with some preconceived notions but were really open to learning more about this magical city. Rafaela was knowledgeable, flexible, fun, enthusiastic and just a delight to be with. We enjoyed two wonderful days with her but probably could have spent much more time with her. I would recommend her to anyone who would like to get to know Rio. Although we had some idea what we wanted to see, she was able to show us way more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey, Ruth! How nice to hear from you. It was a pleasure meeting you all and I have done my best to make sure you would enjoy Rio the way I do. Thank you for choosing me and also for your kind words. Rio and I will always be waiting for your return. Take care, Rafaela.

We had a great tour with Rafaela. She provided different views of the city from Sugar Loaf Mountain city views to a cool refreshing walk through the Botanical Garden and a visit to the historic Saint Teresa District. Throughout the trip we were learning about the history and people of Brazil. We highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Frank. I am very glad to know you and Katie had a great experience in Rio. Take care, Rafaela.

Although we had only a short cruise stop in Rio, Rafaela gave us an impressively immersive introduction to the city, including visits to the Christ the Redeemer statue and the scenic top of Sugarloaf mountain. With excellent English, warm personality and attentiveness to our comfort and our interests, she wove a fascinating tapestry of the city's history, culture, economy and even its music. Her driver, Giovanni, also deserves 5 stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kindness, David. I really love being a guide and meeting people like you, Sherry and Jack is what makes me really happy. Giovanni is a great driver. I am sending your feedback to him as well. Take care and Aloha ❤️
