I traveled to Rio for a few days for personal matters and took 3 tours with Manu: in all, we visited Corcovado, Sugarloaf, the Rio beaches, the historic center and Petropolis (the Imperial City). Manu's expertise is delightful and so is his style of guiding; the attractions become alive through his enthusiasm, his anecdotes and details. Besides, he knew the... More

When our guide arrived to show us the town, he spoke perfect English, we asked him to translate to communicate to the manager the problems we were having with the Apartment. He said... More

Manu was not available so we had Vito be our Tour Guide. Rio was cloudy, rainy, and cold. All the great views that we had seen on pictures were not to be seen that day. But Vito did his best to tour us around the city. He is very friendly, talkative, knows lots of stories about the city and is... More

Manu created a customized program for my wife and I to visit Rio since we only had 7 hours in-between flights. Everything he showed us was wonderful. He is quite friendly, service oriented and speaks fluent English. We recommend Manu highly.

We had booked Manu on a recommendation. At the last minute, due to no fault of his own, Manu had to cancel on us but ensured that a back up was available so that our tour of Rio would go on. Vitor contacted us the night before to confirm the arrangements and propose some amendments due to his previous days... More

Manu speaks very good English and has great knowledge of his wonderful city Rio. The day was full of interesting places some well known and some off... More

My girlfriend and I went for the World Cup and we had an amazing time with Manu! Our only drawback was that we wished we would have booked more days with Manu showing us around. Having Manu as our guide was one of our best decisions of our trip. Manu not only helped us set up a great tour plan... More

An absolutely amazing tour from start (including the organisation/contact with Manu beforehand) to finish!! Manu was ill on the day of the tour. Whilst many operators would have cancelled, Manu asked Vitor to fill in for him. Vitor was so friendly and knowledgable - a genuine Carioca! Vitor asked what we wanted to see but we were happy to let... More
