A tour guide with transportation is essential to experience Rio. Marcio knew all the tricks. What impressed us most was that Marcio knew how to get ahead of the crowds, and where and when to take the best pictures. Of all our photos from Brazil and Argentina, the ones Marcio took of us in Rio stand out. Great pictures of... More

We had scheduled a private tour with Marcio for our group of four. Marcio was able to take us to neighborhoods and sights that we could not go with our tour bus and large group. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Rio, provided very interesting anecdotes and stories about the city, and his English is excellent. He was... More

We just came back from a wonderful tour of Rio with Marcio. He was very knowledgeable, spoke wonderful English, showed all we had wanted to see plus more. The transportation he provided was a very comfortable and clean van with a driver. This allowed him to talk to us on route, and not worry about driving or parking. His knowledge... More

Thank you so much Marcio for the fantastic day! It was both funny and touching to come deeply into contact with a reality so different than mine. Timing was perfectly scheduled and the tour fully meets the needs and expectations! I totally recommend him!

I hired Marcio to give us a tour around Rio de Janeiro when our ship arrived at it's disembarkation point. He was waiting for us outside the luggage area and directed the porter to the correct location for pick up. I was impressed and new right away that the this was not Marcio's first rodeo. The real positive is that... More

With Marcio's help my husband and I were able to see, hear and learn so much about Rio in just one day. Marcio planned the itinerary based around our requests - some vague, some specific - and it was exactly what we had hoped for. We drove through Botafogo, Flamengo, Lapa, Centro, Santa Teresa, Tijuca forest, Rocinha (that was.. wow!),... More

Touring with Marcio was the best way we could've seen Rio de Janeiro. Ahead of time, Marcio answered emails promptly and thoughtfully, helping us customise our itinerary while giving us useful tips for sights that we wanted to do on our own. On the day, Marcio's commentary was fluent, informative and adapted to our areas of interest. Knowing that we... More

Visited all the must do's and Marcio was full of knowledge and local information. I have passed his name on to several people visiting Rio and know they will not be disappointed.
