We were a group of 6, heading to Rio to catch our cruise back to Miami after the world cup. We were spending a couple of days and wanted to have a guide to make moving around the beautiful city easier. I had originally contacted another guide, who was busy and recommended Julio. It worked out perfectly. We set everything... More

My husband and I hired Julio for a 4 hour tour of Rio. He was right on time and took us to exactly the places we wanted to go (and even a few neat places we didn't know about). He is very friendly and very knowledgeable. If he wasn't booked the rest of the time we were in Brazil, we... More

His English was great and his fee was very reasonable for all that we were able to do on this 8 hour all-in-one spectacular romp through the high points of this great city. I highly recommend him and his services. His... More

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
