My girlfriend and I only had one day to see Rio as we were just passing through on our way to Argentina. The trip actually occurred last Fall and I should have posted this review sooner. Now seeing all the sights from World Cup action reminded how much fun we had in Rio. Julio made it possible for us to... More

We decided us shortly for a day tour with Julio. And we have never regret it. It was a really interesting day and we didnt know what to expect from Rio and the tour. Julio had the perfect plan to show us everything and also asked us what we want and like to see in general. So we visited besides... More

I have not actually taken the tours by Julio because we had to cancel our trip to Rio (more than a month in advance). So I cannot really rate the tours but be aware that if you cancel, your deposit may not be returned - as in our case. Julio responded to a number of my emails,always with some explanations... More

Hello Miroslava How are you? My appologies for not sending the booking fee of 50 dollars back in one month. I thought I was very clear on email that I had lost my wallet with the credit card and it would take sometime to get back to me , so the company took almost 20 days to delivered a new... More

Took a tour with Julio and he was fantastic! He showed us unusual places as well as general tourist sites. His English is great. In addition, we had some difficulty with our flight back to the US and he went out of his way to help us. Highly recommended!!

My partner and I visited Rio this past Christmas - NYE and had the good pleasure of meeting Julio as our tour guide. He was prompt, smart, gave good advice, flexible, steered us away from bad decisions and overall was very helpful and a great guide. We highly recommend him.

We stayed in hotel fasano and after a few days realised that a good guide was essential to unlock Rios hidden sights. We asked the hotel staff who recommended their guide who cost $200...per hour! I contacted Julio who responded asap and was much more affordable. Julio arrived on time with a clean air conditioned car, we briefly explained what... More

My family and I just spend a wonderful weekend in Rio. I was concerned we only had Saturday and Sunday to get to see the city. Fortunately one friend recommended me to contact Julio. Before arriving, Julio arranged a very effective one day program where we covered more than I originally expected. He picked us up at our hotel sharp... More

I've done tours before when i've traveled, but never a private tour. This was a terrific day, and was able to see so much more than I would have in an organised group. Being my first full day in Rio, and a little nervous was nice to be picked up from my hotel and shown around, and afterwards gave me... More

My partner and I took a tour with Julio in March. We found the experience to be fantastic! Julio was knowledgeable about the destinations as well as the people and the history. I walked away from the tour feeling like I understood a lot about Rio. His English and his manner are perfect making it easy to ask questions. He’s... More
