We just came back from a South America trip which included 3 days in Rio. Our guide was Glayber Silva and he was tremendous. We covered Hang Gliding (wind dependent), the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf, Favela tour and Macarana stadium and as a result of the weather dependent Hang Gliding event our plan went out the window on Day one. However,... More

I had the most wonderful tour of Rio, he is so knowledgable and pleasant to be with. We had discussed the tour before I travelled but on the days the weather was not the best, but Glayber did not mind going back later in the day to re visit landmarks. He took me to some wonderful places for lunch which... More

Luiza was my guide, called me in the hotel the night before to welcome me to Rio and to confirm pick up time, which was nice touch. Sadly the weather was poor, but Luiza did her best to accommodate that. Had long lunch and great chats, managed to get up the Sugar loaf when the weather got better. Highly recommend.

Very impressed with the professionalism, friendliness and willingness to go above and beyond. Glayber is the perfect guide. Informative, friendly and super on to it. My mother and I had a wonderful time. Especially appreciative of the transfer to the airport and thinking ahead so that we could just relax. Totally awesome. Hire these guys - they are the best!

I traveled with my family last July. We used transferrio from GIG to hotel transfer. They very very punctual (we arrived very late in the evening) and they picked up us with a very comfortable van. I totally recommend them.

We used Transferrio for our pick up and return to the airport in Rio. Getting around rio is no simple matter due to terrible traffic and aggressive drivers. They met us as planned at the airport and were also on time for our return journey. The van was clean, they were really nice guys, and would recommend them to others.

Glayber picked my family up from the airport early one morning and took us around for what was definitely my favorite day in Rio. He was extremely knowledgable about not only the current climate of Rio and Brazil, but had a great perspective of their histories as well. That day we saw Escadaria Selarón and he told us all about... More
