We visited Rio in end Feb 2014 and we chose Marcio from a friend's referral. He showed us the great part of Rio in his well planned time. We started very early to avoid the crowd and heat. He brought us to the Pound restaurant which was very good as it suits every one's appetite whether you are a carnivor,... More

We went to Rio during the World Cup and Marcio as our tour guide in Rio de Janeiro. He is a fantastic tour guide from the first moment we meet him we knew it, communication skills, knowledge, intelligence, punctuality, presentation are all the best you want. He is definitely worth to go with! Super highly recommended !!

Marcio has all the answers Sway didn't have. lol. No but really he is the best. He helped organize a very large group (14) of needy, untimely, loud twenty somethings. He remained patient the entire time. He was also extremely informative and had all the most interesting facts. He arranged for us to be in a van and took us... More

My group of friends and I did a half day tour with Marcio. We had already done Sugarloaf, which we really didn't think needed a tour guide. Marcio picked us up at 7:15am outside of our apartment, and our first stop was Christ The Redeemer. We were the first ones up, and Marcio started giving us the scoop about the... More

Marcio was AWESOME for many reasons: 1) He spoke perfect English. 2) He was very patient. 3) He was extremely knowledgeable about the history, culture and politics of Rio. 4) He took us to a great place to eat. 5) He was very flexible and accommodating. I would highly recommend Marcio if you are planning to visit Rio.
