Ana Maria provided an excellent tour. We were challenged by the rain but she had an umbrella so that we could keep going and see Sugar Loaf. Ana was very knowledgeable gave an excellent history on Rio areas we drove through. We ended the evening at a Samba show. My wife was dancing on stage with the cast at the end of the show and because my wife was in back I could not get good pictures Ana went up on stage and danced too while coaxing my wife up front. She went above and beyond. Great Job
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You were really awesome! Enjoyed everything and besides being tired had fun during the tour! Thank you for your company!!!
We had two full 8 hour days with Ana Maria plus a evening tour that took in a show called "Ginga Tropical" a Brazilian Samba and Folklore Show which was excellent. We saw all the major sites of Rio including sitting on locals beach (Pepe) to have a cold drink and enjoy all the people playing in the sun. We would give Ana Maria a 5 star rating. Her English is excellent and she has a huge love for Rio which translates into so much enthusiasm and knowledge of this beautiful city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The show was really amazing and we had fun together all the time! Thank you for your kind review!

Ana Maria was a lively, enthusiastic guide full of ideas as to how to spend our 8 hours together, and so she was completely flexible and lived the tour in the moment. It was an entertaining evening, full of conversation, eating and music. The only reason for not giving Ana Maria five stars is that she should use a more up-to-date photo. It would have shown her maturity -, I wasn't looking for a date, just a fun evening,which it was.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your interest on all subjects we have discussed all long the tour. It was a great pleasure to show you all the venues in my city!

Ana Maria was a wonderful guide. Very knowledgable & friendly. There was one misunderstanding because we thought we were going to a samba show, but it was just a band playing so people dining at the restaurant could dance.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your company during the tour and I was also very sorry because of the band show that night. Each day is a different show and I didn't know if it would be dancers with them. The best Samba Show is at Plataforma and it begins at 10.00pm in the South Zone very far from the dock area.
