Louis was wonderful. I could go over everything but I would sound like a broken record with all the previous reviews. He does taylor the tours to fit your interest. We never felt rushed or pressured. He had several off the beaten path ideas and we could not have been happier. He's well worth the money and even if your... More

In July 2014 after reading tripadvisor reviews of the top guides in Rio de Janeiro, I decided to contact Luis through the request form on his website. He replied within a few hours and we arranged to tour for three days. I then sent a deposit via PayPal and paid the remainder in US dollars cash each day after the... More

We were originally saddened that our day exploring Rio with Luis was forcasted to be a VERY rainy day. We called Luis the night before, considering cancelling the tour altogether. Luis, while making sure that we were comfortable with any decision, assured us that the weather would not dampen our day! That being said, he was happy to cancel if... More

Luis was a great guide and showed me around a lot of places in Rio in one day. I was meant to do the Christ Redeemer statue and Sugarloaf Mountain with him as well, but as the weather was very cloudy, we couldn't see those places that day, but he was kind enough to take me and show me how... More

Luis came highly recommended via Tripadvisor and he did not let me down. I wanted to shop for shoes, handbags and dresses and he patiently waited and advised when I asked for his opinion. He is very good at replying to all emails and setting an itinerary that suits your requirements. We went to a local market to sample Amazon... More

We found Luis on tripadvisor and we scheduled a two day tour with him on relatively short notice during World Cup time. He was very professional and courteous during the reservation process and during the tour. He was very knowledgeable, and he answered every question we had about Rio/Brazil. Our tour was very enjoyable and we learned a great deal... More

My wife and I arranged a one-day city tour with Luis coming off a cruise ship just prior to the World Cup. Luis was everything you want in a guide: Superb English, organized in his tour itinerary, and full of interesting info about the city and culture. We decided we wanted to do both Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf on... More

We spent a week in Rio during the World Cup. We spent 3 days touring with Luis. Luis speaks great English and knows many local attractions that tourists will not know. Luis was always on time and gave us a lot of great information. We would highly recommend his services if you are planning to be in Rio or Brazil.
