Diana was wonderful in guiding us in pre-planning our adventures in Rio. Once we were off the ship she whisked us away before all the tour buses left the port. Diana is very personable and knowledgeable. We had a limited amount of time before an afternoon flight out of Rio and Diana made the most of it. I am so... More

Diana planned a great day for us in Rio during Carnival (which can be hard to navigate with all the tourists in town). We started at Christ the Redeemer then got to see a bunch of sites ranging from very touristy ones to less traveled ones. It was a good mix and we got to see a lot more of... More

I went to Rio February 2015 and used Diana as a tour guide during my stay. She not only gave us a tour but also picked us up at the airport. This made arriving much easier and gave us one less thing to worry about. On the day of the tour she picked us up as well as dropped us... More

From the airport to Sugar Loaf to Christ The Redeemer... Diana Persi kept me excited, informed and longing for more. Her personal touch makes all the difference. She caters to your wishes and goes far beyond what you'd expect from a normal "tour guide". While in Brazil I became ill and was hospitalized, turning my 7 day trip into a... More

We used Diana for 2 consecutive days for a personal tour when coming off of a cruise ship in Rio de Janeiro. Diana met us promptly at our designated time and place in a very comfortable SUV. She is fluent in English and is an excellent driver in the horrendous traffic in Rio. Diana took us to see Christ The... More

Diana took a friend and myself around Rio for the day at the last minute after a different tour guide had to pull out. I was very impressed at Diana's willingness to pick up the tour at late notice, especially during world cup time. Had a great day in Rio regardless of the terrible weather. Diana took us to the...

My wife and I did a full day tour of Rio a few days ago with Diana, and have nothing but positive things to say. Right from the start it was clear Diana was friendly and easy to talk to, answering our questions and sharing a little about herself. We went to some of the major attractions, including Christ the...
