Went on a tram ride (he explained the tragic history of the original tram that crashed and killed several people and about 20 years later, the city is trying to revive the attraction, we got off and walked down to the selaron stairs, and various downtown sites....

Seriously. You do expect a tour guide to know about the place you're in, but Manu's knowledge of Rio is ridiculously good. Actually, everything about Manu and his tour is spectacular. We booked via email from Australia after reading Tipadvisor reviews. Manu's communication was prompt and professional and his English is fluent. We were wary of reports about Rio being... More

Manu was an excellent guide and showed me the best (and hidden gems) of Rio over a two-day period. From initially contacting Manu, he was very prompt in responding to emails. Manu made sure we coordinated all desired attractions/sites before my arrival and in order to maximize our time together and my Rio experience. Manu was very accommodating in tailoring... More

My fiancé and I visited Rio in October and decided the best way to see the city was to hire a private tour guide. There were many to choose from, but I was interested in Manu Peclat due to the reviews I read. I'm so glad we went with Manu! Not only was he very friendly and personable, he was... More

My husband and I booked a day tour with Manu when our cruise ship was in Rio and it was one of the best days of our three-week trip. Manu picked us up promptly at the port, not an easy feat since it is currently a construction zone. We had a terrific day touring major sights and learned much about... More

Manu is a fantastic tour guide and person! This was our second visit to Rio and we opted to do a tour with Manu because the year before we had also toured the city with Manu's colleague who was also great despite the rainy weekend. Manu was prompt and communicated a lot before our arrival. It was the busy holiday... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
