The best guide in Rio!

Rated 5 out of 5

After much research, we decided to contact Neyla Bontempo for a private 3-day tour in Rio for the six of us energetic, well-traveled seniors. Neyla responded to our emails quickly and gave us different options and reasonable prices. She did not hesitate to tailor the tour to our preferences. Neyla picked us up from the hotel promptly each day with a nice driver in a large, clean van. We saw everything we wanted and more. Along with the normal highlights, Neyla took us to different safe neighborhoods in Rio where we experienced life with the locals. She also took us to local restaurants that served delicious foods. Neyla always knew the best spots for pictures. If you are looking for a professional, knowledgeable and caring guide, you won’t go wrong with Neyla.

Ms. Bontempo was excellent in helping us a plan a somewhat out-of-the-box one-day trip to Sitio Burle Marx and Casa do Pontal. We had a beautiful outing. We recommend Ms. Bontempo highly.

Full day fantastic tour with Neyla

Rated 5 out of 5

We were truly blessed by our Rio tour with Neyla who is a true professional. She picked us up with a smile on her face and it lasted all day! It shows that she loves what she does and it translates to a wonderful tour and explanation of all the major sites one would want to see. And additionally, Neyla is an excellent driver and photographer!!! The best thing about having a private tour is Neyla knows where to stand to get the best views and get on and off the various modes of transport easily!!! We feel like we gained a new friend.

Engaging and Knowledgeable Tour Guide

Neyla gave us a custom tour of Brazil that covered all the highlights of Rio de Janeiro. She is very accommodating in helping us plan out our tour intinerary before our tour and allowing us to change things up during the tour depending on how tired we felt or what we wanted to stop and explore. She checks the weather and suggests which sites to visit first to allow for amazing views and she is very informative about the sights we saw. You can tell that she knows and loves her city. We enjoyed our tour with Neyla so much that I recommended her to my parents when they visited Rio. They were so impressed by Neyla when she offered to take them to Christ the Redeemer the day after their tour because on the day of their tour, it was too cloudy to see it. She will do her best in making sure you have the most memorable time and the most scenic pictures to prove it!
