Luis and I covered all the major sights in one day. He has an ability to line up all the sights in the best order in order to optimize my time in Rio. He also helped me layout the rest of my trip. It was a great tour and I highly recommend you to hire Luis while you are in... More

Our experience with Luis as our tour guide was as if we were seeing Rio with an old friend. He was very reliable, trustworthy, and knowledgeable. He spoke English very well and made learning about Rio interesting and fun. He showed us a side of Rio that we probably would not have seen on our own, such as a neighborhood... More

Luis is an amazing tour guide. He provided personalized service start to finish. And he had the ability to cater to both my interests and needs (as someone from USA - first time in Rio) as well as those of my colleague and friend (a native to Brazil from Florianopolis). The day flew by as we saw beautiful vistas, diverse... More

We hired Luis to give us an overview of the city and he far exceeded our exectations. He took us to see the main sights and on the way to each stop, he gave us the history of each destination. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and funny. We would highly recommend him for a tour of Rio.

As far as private tour guides go I don't think You can find a better one on the planet. But You do need to be prepared and know what You want. Me and my wife enjoyed every bit of the guiding from Luis who is a great guy who knows anything You might want to know about the city and... More

Luis is a great guide, he is knowledgable, experienced and showed us not only the things we wanted to see but so much more with his local knowledge. He is friendly and within no time you feel like old friends! It is so worth spending money on a personal guide that offers a personal service like Luis. He gets our... More

We hired Luis for two days. The first was the best of the two and we really enjoyed it. We seemed to fit so much in. We went to Sugar Loaf Mountain, Christ the Redeemer, Selaron and all the way to Niteroi. Luis was really knowlegable and we really really enjoyed the day. The second day, we went to the... More

We had a great day out in Rio with Luis. He was very keen to find out what we wanted to do and as it was our first trip to Rio we really wanted to get a feel for the city; our tour included taking in an early morning trip to Christ the Redeemer, completely missing the crowds, and a... More

Luis exceeded my expectations! And let me tell you - they were high after reading all the reviews on here:))) Our trip to Rio was an impulse and we were there only for 1 day. Not only he replied to my e-mails within hours, he also was very patient with the changes and requests. Because it was a last minute... More

Luis took us on a great day trip around Rio as part of our honeymoon in Sept 2014. We had already visited the main attractions by ourselves (very easy!!) so we asked Luis to show us some of the spots in Rio that some tourists may miss if on a tight schedule. We had a great day with the highlights... More
