Manu was a delight! We had a previous tour the day before, and Manu was flexible in finding what we didn't see and show it to us. His knowledge of the area is unsurpassed, and he made the day great. His car was clean and comfortable, and the ease of conversation was outstanding. I strongly recommend Manu for your tour!

We chose Manu based on other good tripadvisor reviews and booked a seven-hours-tour. It was a wonderful day and we really enjoyed this individual trip. Manu is an excellent tour guide, a very friendly, funny and intelligent guy who speaks an excellent English. We had been to Rio before and had already seen some of the city's highlights - so...

We booked a two day tour with Manu and had a wonderful time seeing many parts of Rio. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and fluent in multiple languages, as well as flexible in adjusting to our needs. We saw the beaches, downtown, Sugarloaf, the rainforest (including hang gliding takeoff), the Cristo, across the bay, and much much more. I enjoyed learning... More

Had an extra day in Rio from a business trip and decided to pony up for a private tour. Chose Manu based on other tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed. I had already visited Corcovado and Sugar Loaf on my own, so he customized a trip for me that included some of the other great city highlights as well as... More

My husband and I were in Rio at the end of March and booked a 2 day tour with Manu. We had an excellent time! He is a great guide and willing to tailor things as possible to what you would like to see. He keeps a good balance of walking and resting and always checks that you are enjoying... More

Simply, Manu provides an excellent tour of Rio. Amazing time and experience with him. His passion and knowledge of the city and culture gave us great perspective of the city's beauty. Highly recommend for anyone to sign up for his tour (especially if you are visiting from the USA). My wife and I loved this experience.

Excellent service provided by Manu. We visited all the major sights avoiding any queuing particularly at Sugar Loaf and Corcovado. His knowledge was outstanding and he ensured that we all had an enjoyable visit. I have no hesitation in recommending Manu to you. We couldn't have had a better guide.
