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

Marico was such an amzaing guide, very knowledgeable of the culture and history. He is very well spoken and takes great photos. I had a great time and was impressed with the amount of sites that we got a chance to visit. I would highly reccomend him if you are visiting the area. I had a private tour, but I... More

We visited RIO for the first time at the end of November, 2014 and engaged Marcio for a one day private tour. Marcio is an excellent guide and spoke perfect English. He customized the tour according to our needs while suggesting time to avoid the crowd and locations to take the best photo shots. He also took us to some... More

Marcio Guedes is an excellent guide. Not only is he fluent in English, prompt and efficient, the wealth of knowledge he has of Rio and Brazil made our Rio tour one of the highlights of our entire South America trip. We were a group of 7. Marcio included all the sites on our wish list and more. His recommendation for... More

Ditto the remarks of Steve H and 2TravelingMd about Marcio and the 1.5 day tour. It was likely the best city tour we have ever had - organized, flexible, thorough and fun. When we were dropped off at our hotel for our last night in Rio, Marcio even had a couple of suggestions on where to have dinner in the... More
