My wife an I wanted to take a tour in Rio to know about this beautiful place. We saw various positive articles and recommendations of Luis on Tripadvisor and decided to call him. The following morning he picked us up at 7.30h at our hotel and took us to a journey in and around Rio. We skipped the main attractions... More

My family and I had a great full day tour with Luis on our trip to Rio. The highlight was going to a Marketplace and trying all of the fruits and street-food that we would otherwise have never tasted. A lot of fun. Luis also takes some great pictures that he sends to you.

I chose Luis based on the TripAdvisor reviews. His communication with me was excellent. He did not have a firm itinerary planned; our travels around Rio were completely based on our interests. He was full of interesting stories about Rio that you don't read anywhere else. And he was very knowledgeable and patient as we hammered him with questions about... More

Spent a full day in Rio with Luis and had fatastic time. He is very friendly and accommodating and wants you to see and expereince all Rio can offer in a day. As well as all the usual sites to see he took us to a fruit market-something we would not have done by ourselves. He bought us local fruits,... More

We recently spent 2 days with Luis Darin in Rio and highly recommend him. Prior to our visit Luis communicated with us to better understand our priorities and help us plan our itinerary. Luis met us at the port when we arrived by ship and we spent the first day visiting the "must see" attractions, but in a very personal... More

My wife and I had been to Rio before and had done the usual "must see" attractions before. We were leaving our ship at 9:00 AM and had all our luggage to deal with as well as an airport transfer and a day to spend in Rio. Luis met us at the ship and tucked our belongings into the trunk... More

For our third day in Rio, we (myself, wife, and 10yo daughter) decided on taking a full day tour to get to our “must see” picture destinations of Cristo and the Selaron Stairs most efficiently and also to orient ourselves to Rio de Janeiro for the rest of our stay. We emailed local Rio guide Luís Darin. His email communications... More

Luis Darin is knowledgeable, courteous, flexible, and good company. Whether history, culture, art, politics, or local living he has the type of insight that really helps a tourist get to know a city. He's also a fine photographer and very sensitive to selecting the local scenes that will interest the people he is with. When he learned of our (amateurish)... More

Outstanding day with Luis. Even though this one day was cloudy and threatening rain, Luis was flexible enough that we got to see it all except for Corcovado, which was obscured by clouds. Got to Sugarloaf early with no crowds, but with clouds; stopped at a local street market for fruit (great tastings); drove and toured Nitiroi and Santa Teresa;... More

I absolutely recomend to take a private tour in Rio - its an efficent way to see and meet the city. Daily tour lasts for 8 hours and costs 300 USD for a couple. Luis will pick you up on-time (7.30), ask you about your preferences, guide you through attractions and drop you at the hotel (15.00). Some highlights from... More
