A group of 6 girlfriends just spent an extended weekend in Rio. We arranged a full day tour and lunch with Gisela. She was fantastic! It was like having another girlfriend spend the day with us laughing, singing (yup-singing) and sharing their beautiful history. You cannot go wrong with Gisela! She’s an A+!!!
Great day in Rio

We did the full day in Rio with Leonardo during Carnival. Everything went great and there were no problems with the crowd. We even got to see the parade floats being prepared for the evening parade. The views from Corcovado and Sugar Loaf are amazing. Leonardo made sure that we got as much of the Rio introduction as is possible in a 1 day stopover.
We had a wonderful day. Highly recommend.

We threw Gisela a bit of a challenge. Her typical full-day, private city tour includes Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf. We scheduled both for the following day and asked her to modify and show us other interesting things that a visitor might not necessarily see. She delivered without "skipping a beat". Among the many interesting things she showed us, she took us to the "Carnival Experience". We thought we knew what Carnival was. We were so wrong. The behind the scenes tour of how it all comes together was very interesting and greatly added to what was a wonderful day. Her knowledge and English are great. If you choose her, you will not be disappointed. Advice from seasoned travelers
PERFEKT - besser geht es nicht!
