We are a group of 8 from Hong Kong and we only have one and half day in Rio. Thanks to the thoughtful proposal and arrangement of Marcio, we have visited the key attractions and its vicinity with sufficient time of stay at the most important sites : the Sugar Loaf Mountain, the Corcovado Mountain, the Selaron Stairway and the...

This tour was truly amazing. Marcio provided an abundant amount of history to inform my family and I about how Brazil came to be. He was able to answer any questions we had. Also, he made sure to show us some breath taking sights. Many tour guides show "everything" and it gets boring, but Marcio made sure to show us... More

My first time in Rio. With the help of our expert tour guide Marcio, I was able to get to appreciate Rio. We saw all of the important sites and some that were little known treasures. His extensive knowledge of the area and his excellent English were really appreciated. Highly recommend him as a tour guide. Wish we would have... More

We visited Rio on a cruise ship in February 2014 and had Marcio as our tour guide for two days. His tour had been set up by a Cruise Critic member and we were able to join the group. Marcio did an excellent job of introducing us to Rio and showing us all of it's attractions and highlights. The first... More

While sailing on the Prinsendam we had a stop in Rio. One of our Cruise Critic Members organized a tour with Marcio. I was lucky enough to join the group for a fantastic two day tour. Marcio was very good about organizing the best times to see the most popular attractions. Marcio spoke perfect English having spent time in the... More

We had a fabulous tour in one of the favelas and also got to visit the Seleron Steps. Marcio knew where we could get senior discounts and took us to... More

Having Marcio as a personal tour guide was an excellent way to see as much as possible of this beautifully located city in a fairly short amount of time. From our first contact with him prior to our trip, until we arrived back to our home countries everything was perfect. Marcio speaks excellent English which was great for us. The... More

We highly recommend private guides to be able to see the many parts of Rio. Marcio was so knowledgable and we learned so many interesting facts and history about Rio. We appreciated having him take us around and enable us to see so much in one day. His car was wonderfully air conditioned and he was such a gentleman, opening... More

Marcio was a terrific tour guide. To begin with, Marcio's English is perfect and he communicated well with us both before and during the trip. The timing of our trip complicated things a bit (week before Carnival) so Mario improvised and found new ways to criss-cross the very busy weekend traffic in order to get us to our desired destinations....

We are very impressed with Marcio. From the initial communications with him via email to the completion of our tour, we were very pleased. Marcio is very thorough, and knows the highlights of the area very well. He speaks excellent English, and provided us with a good overview of the city, it's history, and it's economy over a 8 hour...
