In town on business, with a few days of down time; the owner of the company I work for recommended Luis Darin while in Rio. Luis picked us up at the B&B and listened very carefully to the types of sites I wanted to see. I am a huge history buff and enjoy learning about other countries, cultures and Religions.... More

Really last minute thing to go on this trip. Emailed Luis to see if he was free and true to his word he got back in touch as he said he would and we were away. He took the time to get from us what we'd like to see and do and obliged. Thanks Luis for sharing your passion for... More

My family had a fantastic day with Luis. Not only did he take us to places in Rio that we never knew about but he also had a wealth of information about the city. Whether it be historical, political or cultural and everything in-between. I would highly recommend Luis to anyone visiting Rio

We spent two days with Luis on our first visit to Rio. Our brief to him was that we intended to visit the big sights like Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer on our own and we wanted him to show us the lesser known sights that we probably wouldn't get to see without him. He showed us so many places... More

I toured for a day with Luis and had an excellent time; I appreciated that he tried to create an itinerary that reflected my interests and not a "one-size-fits-all" tour of the usual sights. Before the tour and again during the day, he took care to ask questions and pose options about what we could do. The logistics were easy:... More

Luis knows Rio inside out and he loves his city. He also knows a lot about wildlife and he kindly shared this with me on my tour. This, combined with his great sense of humour and positive attitude made my 8-hour tour with Luis so fantastic. Luis asked what I was interested in and together we agreed the places to... More

Luis designed a fantastic tour for my family's once-in-a-lifetime visit to Rio. We had our grandparents with us, who are in their mid-80s, and Luis not only took us to the best of Rio's sites, but took care of all the arrangements necessary to make them comfortable, including organising wheelchairs. We really appreciated him going out of his way to... More

Loved our tour with Luis. Born and raised in Rio and happy to share his love of the city, it's culture, history, politics, and great places to see, Luis was a great choice of a tour guide for us. I booked with him because of the reviews on trip advisor and now I can completely agree with all the great... More

Luis knows everything about Rio and shares it all with you. He made all the spots we visited very interesting up to the point we fell in love with the city. We had the best time, he took us to very interesting places we wouldn't even know we could visit. All the city views spots in Rio are breathtaking and... More

We had an amazing time with Luis. We wanted to pack a ton of stuff into one day, and he managed to do so with ease. He brought as to places and activities that we never would have found on our own. We would not hesitate to book a tour with him again or recommend him to our friends.
