Tour: #240214, Rio de Janeiro at your choice - 8 Hours tailored tour, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil    view tour
Date: Mar 5/20

Rose was a great tour guide. We took her "Rio de Janeiro at your choice" 8 hour tour with a few modifications we requested and she quickly sent us a custom itinerary to meet our request. She is very knowledgable about Rio, speaks very good english, and is a great story teller. The only improvement that I could suggest in the tour she gave us is to limit the travel distance between some of the sites, as we spent a fair amount of time in traffic getting to places.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Robb & Diane! I hope you both had a safe trip back home. Thanks very much for your nice review. It was my pleasure to tour you guys around in my town. I fully understand you when you mention the traffic but I can never precisely how traffic will be. I will be waiting for you in the near future and we will organize a pick-nick on the Botanic gardens as compensation. I promise! My kindest regards for both of you

Tour: Rio during Carnaval, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Date: Feb 23/20

This was a tough tour because it was during carnival and many tourist attractions were closed. The biggest complaint my group had was that Rose took us to what they considered a swamp that was supposed to be very special, instead of Cococabana beach that everyone wanted to see. She said there was no way to get there yet when we arrived back on boat many people had tours there that day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Debbie, thank you for your review but I can't agree with your point of view since you approved the itinerary beforehand and I accomplished with it in full. If Copacabana was a must-see, I should have been informed but at no time before our tour started or during the tour, none of you called my attention to that. I really apologize if you did not enjoy your experience and you may rest assured that I will use your statements as an opportunity to improve my tours in the future.

Date: Dec 28/19

We were fortunate to be given a day tour by Rosangela today. She was professional, knowledgeable and very helpful to me, my wife and kept our children entertained and excited. Her love for the beautiful city of Rio shines through. Our only regret was not being able to spend many days together touring, as Rosangela knows so many things to do out of the ordinary.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jason & Lindy, Happy New Year! Thanks very much for your nice words. It was an immense pleasure to assist such a nice family. Your children are adorable and very smart. I was thrilled to be with them and I am very glad I managed to keep both of them entertained and excited with our adult stuff. Rio still has a lot to be seen and I will be here waiting to tour you around in the near future. Give a big kiss to Raphaela and Isaac and my special regards to Lindy. Take care Cheers

My friends from the cruise ship joined us and we all had a wonderful day. The highlight of our day was visiting SugarLoaf Mountain. We loved the view from the mountains. It was an amazing experience. So beautiful. Rose took us to many beautiful churches, as well. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour if you have never been to Rio before and want to hit all of the major attractions in one day. Rose picked us up at the cruise ship dock and after the tour dropped my friends back at the dock and me to the airport.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Linda, hope to find you well! Thanks very much for your review. Was really nice to assist such a lovely group in my town. We sure had a wonderful day together and I am very happy to hear that you all left the city very pleased.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Date: Oct 24/18

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

Tour: Fun in Rio de janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Date: Sep 10/18

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

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.

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.
