We booked Luis after friends recommended him. He was reliable, patient, friendly and spoke excellent English. He suggested which attractions we should do with him and which we were best doing independently. We had two packed days with him and he tailored our tours to fit around places we asked to visit and those he thought we'd enjoy. We had... More

Excelent tour !!!! Luis demonstrated to be an amazing guide and showed us the "unknown" Rio, precisely what we asked him for: Little places not frequented by tourist, nice streets markets where we shared great local food and spectacular spots to enjoy the sights of the city A must do !!!!

I was very impressed with Luis knowledge of Rio and its history. He was punctual in picking us up at the hotel and suggested we leave early to avoid the tour crowds and he was right. We saw Christ on the Hill and Sugar Loaf before the crowds and he knows how to get you through the attractions with ease.... More

We spent a great day in Rio de Janeiro being guided by Luis from the morning till late afternoon. Luis showed us many interesting places in Rio that not every tourist may see or reach. We especially enjoyed the visit to Niteroy where we had our lunch in a typical local taverna Luis brought us into. He was very kind... More

We went to the botanical gardens where he shared lots of information about Rio and the history. He took us into the forest for... More
