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.

I was looking for a private tour guide and contacted Luis based on the positive recommendations on tripadvisor. It was a great decision to hire him as we had a great time in Rio. Luis had lived in US for many years and speaks great English. He loves to show the hidden gems of Rio. He took us to a... More

We had a great day birding with Luis in Rio. He was very flexible and planned an itinerary to suit our interests and wants. He also had a great lunch recommendation (that was not full of tourists) and lots of information facts and information about Rio. We would definitely recommend him and use him again if we came back to... More

Luis was a great guide, he had a lot of information & the exact spot for the best shots. He also is very flexible and can take you to some of the less touristy off the hidden path gems that Rio has to offer. Rio is a gorgeous city, one of my new favourite cities in the world.

I can't say enough about how great Luis is!!! I had a couple of days in Rio to myself as part of a business trip and had not given much thought to what I would do when I got there. Thanks to a last minute cancellation (he is always booked - so book early!) I was able to book Luis... More

Came to Rio following a business trip with two colleagues. Luis picked us up from our hotel. After a few questions Luis planned the day. Got a great appreciation of the people and culture and saw this amazing city from all angles. Perfect day, perfect host, great city - thanks Luis! Peter (Australia)

Got Luis on short notice, he was quickest to reply to me and to confirm the 8 hour day trip booking. He was very flexible and let me tell him my must see places, whilst recommending to me additional places based on my interests. His English is good and probably better than mine, I am sure I did notice some... More

I came to Brazil for a congress and had a layover in Rio. Luis was at the airport waiting for me and I was able to see the highlights of Rio and to have a better understanding of the local culture. The tour was neat and very informative. Luis speaks fluent English and delivered what he promised. Having a great... More

This tour was the highlight of the entire trip. Luis was able to customize the tour taking into account our interests and other factors such as traffic and the weather as well. With perfect English, Luis met us in the morning as we had arranged and asked us a few questions about our preferences as we drove away. Based on... More
