Flexibility is the key word on the tailor made tours I provide. I’ll help you to create your own tour itinerary, so you can see the places you want, the way you want to see them. I was born and raised in Rio and I’m quite fluent in English and Spanish. For the past ten years I’ve been working as a private tour guide in Rio.

Luis was very responsive to our request for a private one-day tour. We had wanted to do the suggested full-day tour shown on his website but he said that tour was developed for tourists that have very limited time in the city and would like to see all Rio highlights in one day; if that's not our case, he would...

We had one day in Rio before our cruise and wanted to make the most of it. Our arrival was later than optimum to start a tour, but Luis simply customized the day based on time, crowds, and what we wanted to see. We drove to Cordova with a scenic stop which had a panoramic view of Rio. During the... More

Had 2-day tour with Luis. He was very attentive to our needs and spent time to understand our likes & dislikes prior to the start of our tour. Eventhough the weather was not so great during the first day, he managed to work out the best routes to maximize our time. He is very flexible and informative to share all... More

Luis was by far the very best guide we ever had. He was courteous, knowledgeable and tailored the tour to match our needs. You can see that he really loves what he does. I recommend using Luis on your trip to Rio.

We spent two full days with Luis starting off with the top attractions and worked our way down the list to off the beaten path, but so worth the time. He found the quickest ways around to avoid the crowds, took us to spectacular view points, farmers markets and we enjoyed delicious lunches at a local neighborhood establishments. He embodies...

We were in Rio on a cruise ship and wanted a more private & intimate look at Rio without the hassles of a tour organized by the ship. We booked Luis based on his Tripadvisor rating and were extremely satisfied with the tour he provided. In fact, he exceeded our expectations. He was very knowledgeable, personable and flexible to our... More
