Barrie GalvinUnited States
Our tour with Roseangela was outstanding. Her knowledge of history and Jewish history in particular was exceptional since we initially had requested a Jewish Heritage tour. Her ability to meet our specific needs and timelyness was also exceptional. Her command of English was terrific. Our guide with our exceptional driver were both able to maneuver our way around the busy city to our destinations. We highly recommend your company and especially Roseangela and hope to use your company during future trips.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Barrie ! Hi guys! Hope everyone is all right. Thanks very much for your nice review. Sure was a pleasure to spend a day with you all exchanging experiences and teaching about my city, its history, and the Jewish roots. I also have learned a lot from our nice talks. Hope you come back soon so I will be pleased to show you the rest of the Jewish heritage we could not see this time. My kindest regards to you all.
We enjoyed our day long tour of Rio de Janeiro with Rose. I recommend her for her knowledge of the city (places, history, current affairs,..) , perfect English and willingness to accommodate her tour based on her client's interests.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Olá Jean-Louis, como estão todos? Thanks very much for your nice words. Was my pleasure to share a day with all of you during Carnaval. I am very happy you enjoyed everything I showed you. Hope you come back soon to my city so, I will be able to take you to the places we had to leave behind due to the special holiday. Send my kindest regards to William, Agnes, and Laura.
Renee KramerUnited States
Rose was very knowledgeable...customized the tour to our needs. She also set us up with a FABULOUS driver, Solis, to do a day at the beach. He was a joy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Renee and everyone. Hope you are all fine! Thanks very much for such a nice review. It was my pleasure to be with you all and I am sure you carried home beautiful memories of our day together. I am very happy that Silas made your day at the beach. He is my guy whenever I need support. Will be waiting for you soon in Rio. My kindest regards to all.
Rose is a fabulous guide who is passionate about her city. She arranged a tour that maximized our experience while at the same time minimizing waiting times. In fact, we never stood in line for anything. Rose customized our tour to meet our needs and wishes. Our only regret is that we couldn't spend more time in Rio. Rose answered all emails promptly, answered questions quickly, and we couldn't be happier. If you want the best experience, book Rose to be your guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Judy! Thanks very much for such a wonderful review and for choosing me as your tour guide in Rio. It was an immense pleasure to assist you all and be part of Agnes dreams to celebrate her 90th years old in my town. She was an example to me. I will be here waiting for your next visit to show you the most fantastic places we did not have the chance to see this time. Send my special regards to Henry and Agnes Take care!
Stephen P.United States
Rose is a great person as well as tour guide. She showed us "hidden gems" of Rio that we never would have seen otherwise. She was very flexible and willing to make sure we had a good understanding of the history and current living conditions of the area. She even helped us get a hotel room when our original reservation was not kept. We would certainly tour with her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Stephen & Donna, hope you already have a nice rest to recover from your trip. Thanks very much for your review. Be sure it was my pleasure to assist you in whatever I could and show you the best we have in Rio. But, keep in mind that we have much more to be seen and I will be here waiting to assist you once again in a near future. My special regards to you both.
Susan ReedUnited States
In our many travels to all the continents, Rose is the best guide we have ever had! She is extremely knowledgeable, articulate and well prepared. She showed us many interesting places that most tourists visiting Rio never get to see. She is a very good driver so we never felt unsafe. It was very hot and she had cold drinks in a cooler in the car. Rose is friendly, laughs easily and has a warm smile. We enjoyed her so much we went to dinner with her after the tour! She is now our friend! Hire Rose!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Sue & Dennis, hope you are both fine! Thanks very much for your nice review . For sure was a blessing to meet such a sweet couple. To be your guide for a day was very gratifying because we became friends immediately and besides discovering hidden places we have spent a special day exchanging ideas and experiences as old friends always do . Take care and my kindest regards to both of you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi John & Alice, hope you are doing great on your cruise. Thanks very much for your rate. Was a real pleasure to assist such a nice couple. If you decide to come back to Rio, I will be here to assist you again. My kind regards to both of you.
Constance PepinUnited States
Our group was very satisfied with this tour with Roseangela in Rio. Although our tour was not at all as planned due to the fact the ship was docked at an alternate location at the last minute and we were 2+ hours delayed starting the tour and were unable to visit Christ the Redeemer, she did everything possible to make the time we had left informative and enjoyable. We would recommend her to anyone wanting a tour of Rio. She was very pleasant, spoke very good English, and well-versed in Rio!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Constance! Thanks very much for your nice review. It was a pleasure meeting you and your group. Better yet to know that despite the setbacks over time and the bad traffic, I managed to achieve the goal of making everyone happy and satisfied with what we got. My kindest regards to you all
Richard StaudtUnited States
Great tour. Even took us to her favorite restaurant
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Richard! Hi guys! Thanks very much for your review and I am very happy because you all enjoyed my favorite restaurant. By the way, how was your cruise? Hope you all have collected very good memories from the cruise. Whenever you come back to Rio, will be my pleasure to assist you once again. My kind regards to you all.
My tour with Rose was beyond exceptional. She proposed a detailed itinerary to enhance my primary interest in Burle Marx Gardens, all of it in consideration of my love of art and nature. She is a warm and informed and very experienced guide so I saw and learned so much in the one day. She also knew what to order for our special lunch. Her day was longer than expected due to the distance we traveled and the returning traffic but she remained patient, a professional through and through. Thank you, Rose!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Virginia! Sure we had a gorgeous and cultural day. I am glad you have enjoyed it. It was my pleasure to be with you as much as I could no matter how long. The day was dedicated to you. Hope you come back soon for us to go on with our visits to the cultural sites of Rio. There is many of them left for us to see. My kindest regards.
An excellent way to see the city and culture! I had a wonderful day with Rose as we toured the market and hippie fair. She is very knowledgeable about the history of the city and acted as a great interpreter as I shopped throughout the day. Lunch was amazing and I glad we went for a traditional Brazilian meal. Finishing off the day at sugarloaf mountain where the views were spectacular and Rose was able to explain what everything was in sight. So glad I did this tour with you Rose!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joninne, hope you are fantastic today! Thanks very much for your very nice review. For sure we had an amazing and different day and was a joy to have you as a client and a friend. Wish you come back soon for us to see everything I have talked about but we did not have the chance to go. Cheers
Professional, well-organised and very informative tour. Enjoys showing not only the well-known sites in Rio, but also lesser known places e.g. the lagoon that even few Rio locals know of, with cayman and birds, and ability to arrange a visit to the Great Synagogue on Rosh Hashanah, which was fantastic! Rose is energetic, a good conversationalist and has the great capacity to tailour a tour to suit your preferences. Goes over and above to make the tour special at a pace suited to you. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Li-ann Thank you very much for the chance to have been chosen to assist you in Rio. We certainly shared good times but the most important thing was the opportunity to learn so much about politics in your country. I hope I have also contributed to your knowledge of our policy. I can assure you that I would very much like to live in Singapore. I will be waiting for an opportunity to show you other precious places in Rio de Janeiro Thanks again and take good care
Robert ZuckerUnited States
I just wanted to share how much I enjoyed spending the day with Rose. She was very knowledgeable about the sites that I was interested in seeing as well as some places that I had not expected to see that day. She was very personable, friendly and I look forward to using her services again in the near future. Rose, thanks for the pictures and your restaurant suggestion was one of the best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Robert, hope you are fine! Thanks very much for your nice review. Sure we had a magical Sunday because at the end it came out being totally unexpected due to the Jewish New Year's celebrations at the temples. I am thrilled to see you enjoyed everything you experienced. Be sure I will be waiting for your further contact to take you to the Jewish sites we didn't have the chance to go this time. Will be my pleasure. See you soon. Take care!
Tony BasileUnited States
Rose was very knowledgeable about Rio and professional.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Tony & Carole! Hope you have had a wonderful trip back home. Be sure was my pleasure to assist you while in Rio and would like to thank you for your very nice review. As we agreed when you return I will show you what was missing: Sugar Loaf, The Great Temple of Israel and the Samba Parade during Carnaval. I will be waiting. See you soon!
Irvine RodgerUnited Kingdom
Roseangela provided what is the very definition of a good tour. She was engaging and very interesting. It was clear she knew Rio's history and was able to also provide meaningful and credible commentary on subjects like architecture añd art. We had good in-depth discussions. Perhaps the best thing was that Rose was very friendly and personable. She didn't just foĺlow a prearranged plan. Rose told us that she ditched the tour she was plannng to follow once she knew what we wanted. A very good day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Irvine & Tom, hope you are well and finally manage to obtain your shot certificate. Thanks very much for your very nice review. It was my pleasure to be with you and make your dream to walk in the historic center come true. I was very happy to spend the day with such friendly guys. Hope to see you back soon , so I will be able to take you to new places. Cheers Rose
Mark AbramowitzUnited States
Rose planned a fabulous trip for us. What a great day. We had all been to Rio many times and she was still able to introduce us to some new and exciting places. And bring us to some old favorites. Rose �� is a thoughtful smart guide and knew exactly how to pace our day and meet all our expectations. Thank you..
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi guys! Thanks very much for your nice review. to make my customer's day in my city memorable and unforgettable is always my goal and I am very happy I have made it happen. Be sure my city still have a lot to be seen and I will be waiting for you all back to show it to you. Cheers Rose
Arthur SilvergleidUnited States
Please see my comments from the April 1 your; they apply to this date as well and don't need repeating.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Peg and Art Was my pleasure to share two days of your trip with such a nice couple. Sure we had a good time together. Hope to see you both very soon. Cheers Rose
Arthur SilvergleidUnited States
Rosangela is a fabulous guide. She understood what we wanted and provided us with a stellar tour that was better than we could have hoped for under the best of circumstances. She is personable, extremely knowledgeable, an excellent driver and knows her city well. Our tour went way beyond our expectations and we were so excited when we finished that we couldn't wait for the second day of our two day adventure. If Rosangela can't exceed your expectations, revise them!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Peg and Art How was your flight back home? Thank you so much for your review. I was thrilled by your stimulating words. It was a pleasure to be your guide these two days we were together. I hope you come back soon and give me the pleasure of being your guide one more time Cheers Rose
John CummingsUnited States
Rose is a fabulous guide! She gave our party of 4 a comprehensive 10 hour tour of Rio on March 31, 2018. We have experienced many local tour guides around the world and Rose rates right at the top. She has a great personality, speaks fluent English, has outstanding current and historical knowledge of Rio and Brazil, and goes above & beyond to personalize the tour for the guests. She far exceeds expectations; we had a fantastic day with her. Rose has our highest recommendation. John & Mary C.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello John & Mary . I'm thrilled with all the compliments you've given me. We had a wonderful day, full of discoveries. I want to say that it was a pleasure to have you and your family in my city and to have been chosen to be with you all. I also want to thank you for the good memories you brought back to my heart, of the times I lived in your country. A big thank you and I hope to to see you back in Rio soon. My warmest regards to you all Rose
Timothy WilsonUnited Kingdom
Wonderful lady who gave us a tour of exactly what we wanted. Just tell her what you want to do, nothing is too much trouble. For a secure way to see the sites of Rio go to Rosangela. We had two half days, first day we went up Sugar Loaf and toured some of the other sites, on the second day we went up to Christ the Redeemer, Rose having organised the tickets for the train I advance to save the waiting time, brilliant as we only had to wait 10 minutes for the train. Brilliant guide really worthwhile.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Tim & Jude, How is your trip going? Thanks very much for your nice review. It was my pleasure to have you here and be your guide . We had a wonderful time together and now, I am waiting for your return to take you to some other amazing places in town. Wish you a memorable time in Salvador as well. My kindest regards to both of you.
Maura MazzerUnited States
Rose was awesome! Due to the carnaval holiday, we got a late start but we were able to see the two most important sights: Christ the Reedemer and Sugar Loaf. We also drove around the city and saw Copacabana and Impinema. Rose also assisted us in making sure we got transportation to both nights of the carnaval (mom uses a wheelchair so wanted to make sure we were safe). She really went above and beyond and we will be forever grateful for her assistance and for her knowledge of Rio!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello my two beautiful girls!!! I am very happy to see you finished your trip with lots of joy and good memories. Was a great pleasure to assist you both in RIo and hope you will be able to come back soon for us to see a lot more of my city. I will be waiting for you for sure. By the way... How was your Samba parade experience? As good as I told you it would be? Unforgettable?? My kindest regards for you both.
Francis MacaulayUnited States
We were with Rose all day and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We felt completely safe during the Carnaval activities. She is a joy to be with. Thank you Rose! Our best, Jerry and Del
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jerry & Del ! Despite the terrible traffic, sure we had a very light day and lots of fun together. I would like to say that was a pleasure to have you here and hope to assist you again in a very near future. By the way, how was your samba parade experience? See you both . Take careo Rose
Andrew BlayUnited Kingdom
Follow on tour Day 2. Most enjoyable. Excellent Brazilian Lunch .Highly recommend Rosangela as your guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Andrew & Nancy! I was sure you would love the lunch. It is really a very nice place. Cheers
Andrew BlayUnited Kingdom
Rose employs such enthusiasm in providing her guests with very interesting facts and details. She knows the city of Rio and surrounding areas very well . Apart from the most well known of all that Rio has to offer Rose can also take you to some hidden gems if you so desire. All in all a First class guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello my friends! Hope you are both fine and already missing Rio. Thanks very much for your nice words and review which makes me very happy to see I have reached my goal . Keep in mind that carnaval is an experience you have to see once in your lifetime and i will be very happy to assist you once again and to help to prepare everything for a good show on the Samba Parade. Cheers
Jill BaldwinUnited States
Excellent guide—-arrived on time and very knowledgeable. She did everything we asked for and more. Everyone in our group of six said she is the best. Very nice vehicle and goid safe driver. She could give lessons on how to be a guide. Gave us just the right amount of information at each location.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi everyone! Hope you all are enjoying the cruise. Was an honour to assist such a happy group. Thanks very much for your nice review. Hope to have you all back in town to take you to the places we did not have time to go, Cheers
Dieter FranzUnited States
Rose picked us up at the Cruise Pier which was very busy because 2 ships were unloading, Despite the turmoil Rose spotted us very quickly . The following 8 hour tour of Rio really helped us to better understand and appreciate Brazil. Her knowledge of the Country as a whole and of the history was excellent. The tour reinforced the history of Brazil. For example we visited the Supreme Court Building, now a museum. We ended the day by visiting the Christ the Redeemer statue - very impressive.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chris and Dieter, how are you doing? Was a great pleasure to assist such a nice couple and I am very happy to see that you have enjoyed my city and had the chance to understand its history a little better. Thanks very much for your review. I will be waiting for your next visit to Rio to be able to show you the exclusive places in town that we did not had time to go. Will be a honour to be with you again, My special regards to you both Cheers
Susan HamarUnited States
Exceptional on all fronts. The advance communication was clear and practical - including the assistance of advance purchasing our tickets for Christ the Reedemer as it was our top priority for the day. Rosie was very flexible with our changes for the day - including making dinner reservations for us for later in the evening. Experienced and knowledgeable. Also great English speaking and comprehension which really, really helps as we had our children with us. Thanks Rosie!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jeff & Susan, Reynold & Hudson! Great to hear from you all. Hope you arrived safely home. Thanks very much for your nice review. I was delighted to assist such a nice and sweet family. Hope you come back soon for me to show you what was missing from my beautiful city. Cheers
Donovan ShafferUnited States
We have traveled extensively for many years. Rosangela is by far the best guide we have ever met, If you are going to Rio you should contact her. She will take you places most tourists never see.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Don & Cha! Thanks very much for your review. It was my pleasure to assist such a sweet couple in my town. I am very glad to hear that you both enjoyed the places you visited. Will be waiting to assist you once again in a very near future Cheers
Julie RisiskyUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Julie and guys ! Thank very much for your rating. It was my pleasure to assist you in Rio and to show your jewish roots in our city. Hope you can come back soon. Have a nice trip back home. Cheers
Ian StillUnited Kingdom
I cannot praise Rose highly enough for her preparation and delivery of varied 3 days in her home city of Rio. I have seen parts of Rio that are not even mentioned in guide books. We discussed a schedule my visit and agreed on it but she was flexible so we changed and added things as necessary. Using her car helped save a lot of time and made it possible to visit more places than expected. Her language skills are excellent and I understood everything she explained to me. I had no problems. Thank you Rose.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ian! It is my turn to say thank you very much forgiving me the chance to your tour guide . It was a great pleasure passing these last 3days introducing my city to someone so interested in learning about our culture. If I could rate a client, for sure you would have 10 stars. I hope I can be your guide again very soon Thank you very much and it was my pleasure to assist you Cheers
Ken L.United States
Rose is very knowledgeable about Rio and how to negotiate the horrendous traffic. Her insights (often negative) about Brazilian politics were welcomed. However, her repeated negative comments about her family and personal situation was not welcomed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ken & Ann I am very glad to see you are back home. Hope you have enjoyed the rest of your trip and had the chance to collect many pictures of Salvador and Iguaçu Falls to remember the good time. Was a real pleasure to get to know you and to assist you while in Rio showing my city around and if you come back, please let me know. Cheers
Martin GlicherUnited States
My wife and I just returned from a fabulous trip to Brazil, spending time in Ipanema and Copacabana. Our guide Rosangela became instant family as soon as we met at the airport. She is very knowledgeable of the country and showed us all the sights of Rio including some we specifically wanted to see. She even took several photos of us. We highly recommend her services as a tour guide in Rio. She really is a lovely lady and went above and beyond what is expected. Thanks to her our trip was memorable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear friends Martin & Nina. Thanks very much for such a nice review. You guys were special and we had a wonderful time together. I will be waiting for your return to show you more special places. Warmest regards
Martin LederTappan, NEW YORK, United States
We spent wonderful time with Rose. She was exceptionally knowledgeable about the city of Rio. Her explanation of the history and current social & economic conditions of the city, along with the now very charged political scene in Rio. You could sense her passion for this city and it gave us a sense of the warmth not only of the people of Rio but also of our guide Rose. I wish we could have spent many more days with her and would tell anyone who selects Rose as a guide, they will not be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Marty & Grace! Thanks very much to select me as your tour guide. We had a wonderful time together and I will be waiting for you in next october to show you what was left behind. Will be my pleasure to tell and show you about the jewish roots in Rio See you guys. Rose
Joyce RubinUnited States
"Our group of 8 spent 2 days with Rose who expertly planned our tour to include both our requested Jewish sites & tourist attractions. She was organized, delightful & had excellent communication skills. She answered all questions & demonstrated knowledge of Rio's history, political & economical climate & Jewish history.Our only recommendation is that she use a microphone in the vehicle due to the traffic noise. Because of her detailed planning, we all had an amazing time in Rio. Thank you Rose."
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Joyce! Hello everyone! Thanks very much for such a delightful words. Be sure it was my pleasure to be the tour guide for such a special group. We had a wonderful time and hope you all come back soon for us to go see more about my Rio . My warmest regards to all
Ros Angela planned a custom tour beyond our expectations for our day in Rio. Prepurchased Redeemer tickets, an extraordinary Copacabana steakhouse, assistance with a wheelchair and so on. A delightful lady who packed two days into one. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Warren! Hello guys! Thanks very much for your nice words.Be assured that was a real pleasure to be a guide to such a nice group in my town. Hope you come back soon for us to see what was left behind. My warmest regards to all of you.
Peter BoswellUnited States
Rosangela was very prompt and fully prepared for this tour. She adjusted the tour based on our needs. She is highly intelligent and very knowledgeable of the history of Rio and Brazil. She made us so familiar with the city that we were comfortable on our own later with the Metro and even the public buses. We will highly recommend this tour by Rosangela to our friends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Peter & Katrina I am very happy to see you are back home with good memories of your trip. I am also very glad to hear that you are so acquainted with Rio that I dare to say you both already become a "Carioca Citizen'. Was a pleasure to be with you and to help you get familiarized with Rio. Thanks very much for your nice words and to give me such a wonderful opportunity. Hope to have you back to Rio very soon. My warmest regards to both of you.
Mary BarretoUnited States
We spent two days with Rosangela visiting Rio during our holiday cruise. Our entire family had a great time. We would highly recommend it. She was very efficient with the time available and was very punctual in taking us back to the ship. Thank you!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mary! Thanks for your nice words. Rio for sure is missing you and your nice family. Was my pleasure to be with you, Osvaldo and the kids. Hope to have you all back very soon.
Enjoyed Rio and a lot was due to our excellent guide, Rose. Rose knows and cares about her city (sites, history and latest) and could do tours under many different themes. We saw the well known sites and less advertised areas like Niteroi and botanical gardens. Rose shares her insights enthusiastically which contributed greatly to our experience. Her English is excellent. She was reliable and accommodated our interests (we saw everything we had planned with her); interesting meal stops. Recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Brigita and Nick! Thanks very much for your words. I am very proud to see that Rio was one of the highlights of your trip and that I've reached my goals to introduce you to my beautiful city. It was my pleasure to assist you and Nick. You guys are really nice and hope that you have the chance to come back soon. My very special regards to you both.
Our tour did not commence too well due to unfortunate circumstances. Rosa rose to the occasion, giving us extra time to cover everything., despite the fact she had a very early start the following morning. We cannot thank her enough for all of her knowledge and information. Rosa is a delightful lady, I truly hope we meet again one day. Many thanks
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello guys! Hope you are all well and that John had already recovered from his ankle. Be sure it was my pleasure to assist you all and would like to register that despite the small events we faced, we had an amazing time together. Hope to have you back in my town very soon. I will be thrilled to assist you all again. Cheers and Thank you.
Russ EisenbergMilwaukee, WI, United States
Excellent in every way. On time. Helpful. Knowledgeable. Flexible. Creative.

Igor MayUnited States
Rose is a dynamic and professional guide. She adapted the schedule and showed us around the town while giving us detailed information about the city and what we were seeing. Once in a while you meet someone, and you feel their passion for what they do. With Rose we enjoyed a lovely two days. Highly appreciated and recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Igor & Tatyana! So, already home with your suitcase full of good memories! I am happy for you both. Was my pleasure to be with you showing my city around and helping you to collect good memories. Thanks very much for your comments and will be at your disposal in a near future.
Alan MorgensternDenver, NC, United States
My wife and I Tavel all over the world and use Tours by locals. We have met many local guides. However, we have never enjoyed working with one as friendly and as knowledgeable as Rosangela. She went out of her way to accommodate our every need. She even took us shopping when it became apparent that we had let some items that we needed home. If we lived in Rio, she would have been one of my wife's best friends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Alan and Elaine! So, you guys are back home? Wish you have enjoyed your trip as much as you could. For sure you both were very special and was very pleasant and comfortable to assist you both. Tell Elaine that even though she do not live in Rio, she will always have a best friend here. Thank you very much for everything and hope to have you back in town very soon. Cheers Rose
Katie T.United States
Being taken to a famous restaurant in response to our inquiries about Brazilian food was a highlight among memorable images we'll always carry of Rio. We felt sorry for those from our cruise ship who booked large group excursions, paid far more, and even had unprofessional outcomes. Our second day was full & personal. Kudos & deep gratitude to our superb guide, Rose, who couldn't do enough for us. Tours by Locals, keep up your good work.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Guys! Thanks very much for your nice words. I am very happy to know you will always have good memories of my town. You all were very dear to me and the moments we shared together were very special. I will be waiting to assist you again in a very near future. Cheers
Katie T.United States
We almost cancelled the tour due to changes in arrival time, but our guide patiently worked out a custom tour to meet our time frame, & honored our individual requests skillfully. Rose was competent, professional, and personable, in short, the perfect guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Leo and Katie, Maxine and Laverne! Once again thanks for your nice words. I always do my best to please my customers and accomplish with their dreams. I think I have achieved up to now but for me is never enough. Hope to have you all here soon. Cheers
Barry BensonUnited States
From the very first email exchange, Rose proved to be more than we could ever expect or hope for. Not only does she have a deep and broad knowledge of Brazil and Rio, but she was extremely responsive to our wishes and needs. We could not have enjoyed Rio to the degree that we did without her! Her English is superb... The only problem was that we could only give her 5 stars!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Barry & Sharon! Hope to find you all fine but I bet you are missing our beautiful Rio. We had a great time together and everything was perfect. Thanks a lot for letting me be the one to teach you a little about my town. I'm really flattered by your words and for sure moves me to go on improving the service to my clients and friends. Thank you very much and be sure I am ready for our "second round"in a very near future. Send my regards to Sharon. Cheers
Dennis LongwillUnited States
We had a great time with Rose in Rio de Janeiro. She really knew her way around and showed us the sites with ease. She speaks excellent english.We ate at two great restaurants that she recommended. Her charm and good humor were added bonuses. Rose gets our highest recommendation
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Dennis and Jeannete, I also had a great time assisting you both in my town. We had a wonderful time together, for sure. Thanks very much for your words and I will be waiting for both of you in a near future for us to see what was missing. Have a wonderful time in Iguazu! Cheers
Jason KnoxUnited States
We really liked Rose. Punctual, comfortable car and her English is great. She was very flexible with the schedule as we wanted to substitute the botanical garden tour with Sugar Loaf in the afternoon. We enjoyed laughs visiting throughout the day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Guys! Are you all already home? Hope you had a wonderful trip. Was my pleasure to be with you and your family and sure we have enjoyed a very good time together. Mainly with the little monkeys. It was fun.Thanks very much and I will be waiting for all of you again in a very short time, Send my special regards to Talana and Madaleine. Cheers
Rio was our final stop in a 1 month holiday. But Rosa was a bright spark for an otherwise very tired 4 person group itching to go home! We all wanted to bypass the Cathedral (we had seen so many before) but she gently insisted and, believe me, it was one attraction we are unlikely to forget! She took 2 of us for a special local meal - well outside her scope of activities. Despite and 86 and 80 year old couple, Rosa was able to take us through Rio's main attractions successfully. Very highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Guys! Hope you are all well and recovered from your month vacation in South America. Really, was my pleasure to had the chance to guide my special group around and to find out all had a good time. I really admire Mr. & Mrs Gosh's will power to enjoy life in full despite their physically restriction. Thanks very much for everything and will be waiting to assist you all once again in a near future. Rose
Richard KitaeffUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Guys...!!!! I am very happy to see all of you had a great trip back home. I tell you... we arrived at the airport at the perfect time. You have no idea how much rain we caught on the way back. Rich, words and judgments like yours is what motivates me to keep striving for excellence to offer my dear clients/friends our best. Thanks very much for the opportunity to be with all of you and I will be here waiting for a further chance to tour you all again in a very near future. My kindest regards to all.
Geoffrey DaileyUnited Kingdom
A highly professionaly organised tour despite the problems caused by road closures due to the Carnival. Rose quickly came up with solutions and we would highly recomend her to any travellers planning a trip to Rio.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello guys! hope you are all fine. Thanks very much for your nice words. It was my pleasure to assist you during this hard Carnaval period. Hope to see you all again in a near future. Cheers
Rose was a excellent guide, very knowledgeable and looked after us well. We enjoyed our time with her in Rio and would certainly recommend her services to anyone interested in a private tour of Rio and the area. We enjoyed 3 days of touring and would certainly contact her if we get back to Rio. Rose is a very friendly, personable lady and you will immediately feel comfortable with her. Thank you Rose for an excellent adventure. Eleanor and Robert from Canada
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello guys!!! Very happy to see you got home full of memories of your long trip and your carnaval adventure in Rio. Thanks very much for your nice words/rating on me and was my pleasure to have the chance to meet such a nice couple and tour you around. I am sure that will be much better in a near future when you come back to my city because we'll not face the troubles we had with mobility since the Olympics will be gone. Will be waiting for your next arrival. My special regards to both

OUTSTANDING TOUR GUIDE! My husband and I booked the 'Postcard of Rio' tour with Rose and recommend her wholeheartedly. Rose is a perfect guide whose passion for her home city is infectious. She is the consummate professional who arrived early to pick us up from the cruise terminal and who adapted our tour to enable us to 'see' ALL of the top sites in our very limited time. She even held our place in the queue to get back down Corcovado, whilst we took our Christ pics which saved us an hour! Brilliant.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Rachel & Andy.... Greetings from our beautiful Rio de Janeiro! Thanks very much! Your review made my day. It is very rewarding to find out my clients are really pleased with their stay.This is what give me support to go on improving the quality of my service. Hope you guys had a nice trip back home and I will be waiting for your return to my city to take you to the amazing hidden nice places in Rio. See you soon!

Susan StallardPALM BEACH, FLORIDA, United States
We loved Roseangela! She was wonderful, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to be with. She found what we had and had not seen on a ship's tour previously, and dovetailed her recommendations into what we had seen, so there were no duplications. We also enjoyed feeling her love of Rio, and her passion for providing her guests a first rate experience. Because of her, Rio is high on our list of cities we would like to visit again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Susan! I am really sorry I have only see your review now but thanks very much for your nice and stimulating words. I always get very rewarded when I see that my new friends enjoyed their stay in my beautiful Rio . You may rest assured it was a pleasure to assist you. Hope to see you soon !
Donald BrunnUnited States
Rose is one of those rare souls, whose intelligence, grasp of the details, eye for service and passion for her culture and its language - combines in a way that makes me know that I'll make an effort to seek her again, to learn more of what she knows...about Brazil, about Rio. She tailored our (too short) visit in a way that exposed us to the highlights of Rio's rich sights and culture, without feeling part of a crowd and without feeling sold the usual chamber of commerce fare. Rose: a talent; a find!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Don & Pam, Thank you very much for your opinion. I'm thrilled and flattered by your words. Compliments like yours just make me want to know more and more about my roots and history to be able to always offer, the best service to all my new friends. It will be a pleasure to have you soon here in my town. Take care and see you soon Cheers!
Frieda HarrisonUnited States
On January 4, 2014 Rosangela was our tour guide in Rio de Janeiro/Brazil. We only had 4 hrs.; but, we could have spend the whole day with Rosangela. She is truly a professional tour guide. She knows her city inside-out; not only the interesting sights; but, the history and the nowadays concerns of the city and country. She is educated and her English is flawless. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we had with Rosaangela. She is a generous and warm person; next time in Rio we are with Rosangela!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Frieda! Thank you very much for your nice words and you may rest assured that was my pleasure to have you here with me. I will be anxiously waiting to have you once again here soon.
We had a wonderful time in Rio de Janeiro thanks to our guide Rosangela. She was amazing and went beyond what we expected to make our stay and tour both memorable and enjoyable. We highly recommend Rose as your tour guide of choice for Rio. We cannot say enough good things. Rose is a very good and safe driver and speaks perfect English. She went out of her way to make certain we got to visit all the "high" points of Rio. We will never forget our day in Rio! 5 stars for sure!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Neil! Was my pleasure to be with you here in my city.I am very happy to see you had an amazing and perfect time A new client is always a new friend and be sure you are already a dear friend!

Karie LavalleyUnited States
We were extremely lucky to have found Rose on this site. I knew from the moment she welcomed us at the airport that she was exactly what we were looking for during our week spent in Rio. She created a customized itinerary for us based on our needs and desires. Rose is very knowledgable and passionate about her job, and most importantly, she is a very kind, caring woman who we felt was part of our family after only a day. She made our experience in Brazil truly enjoyable and I highly recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karie, greetings from "our" beautiful Rio! It was a pleasure to be with you all here in Rio de Janeiro. For sure we had a good time together. You guys came as a dear client and left as a dear friend. Thanks for your review and hope to have you all here once again soon. Cheers
