We felt very lucky to get Marcio as a tour guide in Rio. I had written to him early in the year with just an inquiry and then when I re-contacted him in September, he remembered our previous correspondence. He is extremely busy and was only available one out of three dates I requested. But, unlike others I contacted, he... More

Marcio was our guide for an Oceania Cruise ship tour that included a final destination of Rio. He is courteous, professional, extremely knowledgeable regarding Brazil, cities, attractions. Having been educated in the US and Brazil, he bridges the cultural divide with ease. No question is too general for him, and he takes great pleasure in meeting his clients needs. Flexibility...

We were on the 1.5 day tour with Steve H and we agree with everything that Steve said in his review. Marcio is one of the very best guides we've had anywhere. He was educated in theUS and taught English in Rio, so his English was better than mine! Marcio really made our Rio visit special.

Emailed Marcio a few weeks before arriving to Rio. Agreed on date & a price and booking was confirmed via email. Marcio sent a number of suggestions, we picked two and left the rest up to him. He showed up exactly on time, spoke perfect English, knew the city in and out, was very flexible and pleasant. We couldn't have... More

I have used Marcio two times to tour Rio and if I ever go back I will use him again. On one trip it was just two of us and the second time it was a group of eight off a cruise ship. Marcio knows everything about the history and geography of Rio. He will customize your tour to make... More

A one day private tour adjusted to our party's needs. Very professional, safe, informative and organised on a quality private bus. Marcio was knowledgeable and well presented speaking good English. A great way to learn your way around Rio without any stress.

I found Marcio through TA and agree with all the positive recommendations that describe him and his service. We were on a ship that ended its voyage in Rio so we wanted someone who would fill our day with interesting highlights of Rio before taking us to the airport. Marcio was flexible with the plans and even the number of... More
