The best tour guide I have ever had. Marcio is very detail oriented, considerate and made our trip to Rio a wonderful thing. I cannot recommend his services enough. All of his advice as accurate and he made our visit perfect. Thank you

My wife and I wanted to see other aspects of Rio de Janeiro than the usual tourist haunts. Thanks to Marcio we visited the incredibly interesting and culturally rich 'Rocinha Favela'. While close to Impanema/ Leblon beach districts...its worlds away economically. Marcio safely shepherded us through the district, and helped us meet the incredibly warm and friendly people of this...

We only had 2 days in Rio, but Marcio worked with us for many weeks prior to our arrival, through emails, to ensure we would be able to see all the sites on our list and to establish a schedule that fit our needs. His incredible knowledge greatly enhanced our enjoyment of Rio, allowing us to view the beautiful city... More

My trip started off inauspiciously as United Airlines lost my baggage and I needed to show up for work the next day. With Marcio, no problem. Off we went to a shopping center near my hotel in Copa to buy clothes and cell phone pre-paid cards. Marcio was patient to the max. He speaks English fluently, even better than me,... More

Excellent service, great information on sites, we followed a couple of VW's from a club and made sure I had some great pictures. He also found a beautiful 1930's Pontiac and made sure I got great photos. He works with you to find sites you need to see. We will call upon him when we do Carnival in 2016.

I found Marcio at trip advisor and contact him not only for a private tour but also to help me with transfers to Lapa and Airport. He did a outstanding job in everything that I requested. It was a large group of American friends. All of them were happy with organization and also the city and attractions information. I strongly... More

This was our second time using Marcio as a guide. The first time we went to all the regular attractions. This time we requested to get a flavor of the Rio at Carnival time and he did the rest. Marcio is extremely knowledgeable and speaks perfect English. No surprise since he spent a lot of time in the US. The... More

My girlfriend and I visited Rio over New Years (Dec. 27-Jan. 3, 2015). The second day of our trip we scheduled a full day tour with Marcio primarily based on positive Tripfinder reviews. We couldn't have been more pleased with the tour and really felt like we got the best bang for our buck. Prior to arriving in Rio, we... More
