We recently spent a great day in Rio touring with Manu Peclat. We were picked up from our hotel in a timely manner and off we went! Manu is very knowledgeable about Rio and we really enjoyed listening to his commentary. Looking back at our photos, we realized that we saw an amazing number of places all over the city.... More

I contacted Manu about 15 months prior to our tour to make sure that he would be our guide. We were spending 2 days in Rio and his intinerary was very interesting. He was there to meet us when we left the ship. He had a small bus which fit our group size nicely. He made sure that the sites... More

My wife and I spent a glorious day in Rio being guided to the city's highlights, and Manu was completely flexible as he took us to a couple of rather unknown locations on our request. He was full of information and obviously loved his city. That was infectious. We highly recommend him to anyone who wants to really see the... More

Last month we spent two days in Rio and had the good fortune of using Manu Peclat as our guide. He met us at the cruise terminal with a very comfortable van and driver and spent the next two days showing us every important sight in Rio. From the Christ statue at the top of Corcovado, to Sugar Mountain to... More

Manu sent one of his team Vitor for the rio tour! no problem at all. Vitor is knowledgeable, talks a lot, which is just what is needed for a tour guide and we really enjoyed his company. We met at 8am and Vitor made it clear that the tour would finish at 3pm We would like to have seen a... More

Manu was unavailable, and sent his partner, Jonny. He provided a tour of Rio in a clean vehicle, delivered in flawless English. We saw parts of town inaccessible to the huge tour buses, avoiding their regimentation and higher costs. I can see why Manu is so highly rated, if an employee is so exceptional.
