If you want to tour Rio minus the hassle, book Marcio. First, he is fluent in English. Being a Cariocan himself, he knows Rio's local culture and shares a lot of information that will surprise you.

I got a few names and called them to book a tour. Unfortunately, I had a very hard time understanding their English and decided not to... More

We was in Rio for the World Cup finals and arranged for Marcio to show us around for the day. He arranged transportation and collected us from the apartment we were staying promptly early in the morning. Marcio was very knowledgable on many different topics and was truly worth every penny. He kept everything open and not to a tight... More

We visited Rio during the World Cup final. His planning was outstanding. He managed to take us to all the tourist spots in the middle of this busy weekend. Very professional and knowledgeable. Marcio is the best!!! Highly recommended.

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

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
