Marcio was a knowledgeable and flexible tour guide. Saw great sites in Rio, famous and some unexpected. Allowed us to kind of go with the flow of what we wanted to do as a group of 15 visiting Rio as members of the US Navy. Learned a great deal about the country of Brazil and Rio including history and culture.... More

From beginning to end, the tour process with Marcio was great. He was knowledgeable and filled the time with stories and answers to our questions. He speaks excellent english and moved our group of 16 around the city easily. We visited Christ the Redeemer, Selaron stairs, several historic points in the center of Rio and Sugarloaf mountain. Our transportation was... More

My wife, myself, and another couple recently toured South America. While in Rio, we had an extra day. I had done some research beforehand and had decided a private guide was the best option. My research had decided that Marcio Guedes fit our needs exactly!! Marcio is a native of Rio, a Carioca. Through emails we had made arrangements for... More

We made a trip with all my family to Rio and Club Med. We were a party of 14 with all the problems that can carry. Marcio was always very helpful and ready to answer our questions and even try to make some rescheduling when needed. He organized our transfers airport-hotel, an 8 hour city tour and Corcovado train tickets.... More

Marcio took us on a 4-hour tour to Rocinha - Rio's biggest and most developed favela. He was very knowledgeable and provided us with a huge amount of interesting facts about the place, its people and businesses. He also gave us a few pointers on the bars in Santa Teresa. The one that we managed to visit was really awesome.... More

Marcio is great! I had only 4 days in Rio with my family of 5 and we wanted to see all the major spots. Marcio knew the tricks to see the most intersting locations at the right time and in the right order so we didn't waste any time. He helped us plan what to do on our free days... More

My girlfriend and I decided to head to Rio for an end of summer trip. As Americans, we were unsure of what to expect in terms of learning the city, crime, getting around and trying Brazilian food. A colleague recommended Marcio and going on his tour was the BEST way for us to learn the city. Not only was he... More
