Our family of 6 booked a day with Manu during our 14 hour layover in Rio. We arrived from Atlanta early in the morning and Manu picked us up from GIG airport per our arrangement. Manu is a very enthusiastic person and speaks very good English. He had a nice air conditioned van waiting for us. Manu showed us his... 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

Manu was not available on the day we requested so he introduced Vitor to be our tour guide in Rio and I thank him for his great recommendation. Vitor speaks fluent English, easy going, professional and knowledgeable. It was a great pleasure to tour with him in his comfy SUV. He plans the tour well to avoid traffic and crowd.... More

We were suggested Manu by my neighbour, and our tour was booked, but due to a family emergency, Manu couldn't make it, but was able to re-schedule our tour with his colleague, Vitor. The day started early to avoid the line-ups and sun. We hit the major sites, and as there was an unofficial holiday (as it was World Cup... More

Spent a day in Rio with Victor. Victor was recommended by Manu. The tour was excellent and a great way to see the most important sights around Rio. Lunch at a typical Brazilian grill establishment was extraordinary. The evening recommendation in Lapa to hear live music was fantastic. Felipe

We could not have asked for a better guide, he is great. Very knowledgeable, helpful and very importantly nice to have around. It... More
