We contacted Neyla whilst in Rio for 1 week. I read the reviews and thought she sounded exactly what we were looking for- both friendly and knowledgeable. She contacted us immediately and we booked in a day we were both free. She then contacted us again, apologising and informing us that she had double booked that day. She offered us... More

I toured Rio with Neyla yesterday, having booked online several months in advance. All communications were prompt and professional and Neyla arrived at my hotel as planned. We then spent the day seeing the sights of this beautiful city and chatted as old friends. As a solo traveller, sometimes private tours can be a bit strained and awkward initially, but... More

Neyla met us at 7:45 AM as promised for our one day private tour. Her vehicle was clean and comfortable and her smile made us feel welcomed. We started out by going up to Corcovado to see the Christ the Redeemer statue. The first of a day full of breathtaking views. Neyla took pictures of us with Copacabana and Ipanema... More

Neyla gave us a fantastic one day private tour of Rio de Janiero. Sugar Loaf Mountain, Christ Redeemer, Santa Teresa colonial neighborhood, Escadaria Selaron staircase, and Metropolitan Cathedral were all great sights to visit. Neyla's knowledge of Rio de Janiero was great. She was very good about pointing out places to take the best photos. She is well networked with... More

I'm in Rio to attend a few Olympic events and Neyla's tour ranked highly among my best memories of my trip. When you complete an 8 hour tour and don't check your watch even once for the time, that's when you know you're having fun. Neyla has an amazing sense of humour and my group of four friends enjoyed every... More

Neyla is a great guide because she understands what people want to see in Rio. For the two of us, it was not only Sugar Loaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer statue, but the buildings and preparations for the Olympic games which would take place in two weeks. Neyla speaks really good English and has no trouble maneuvering through the... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
