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.

My husband and I recently returned from a South American vacation, we visited Rio, Buenos Aires, Easter Island and Machu Picchu. Glayber was our first guide, he picked us up at the airport and we did 2 half day tours, one to Sugarloaf and one to Christ the Redeemer, and he also transferred us back to the airport at the...

My family and I have traveled the world so I have experience with many tour guides. Glayber is one of the best. He is so great I am writing this review, the first time ever, so that others will enjoy Rio under his excellent guidance. He gave us a hearty welcome to Rio and took us on an all day... More

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

My wife and I have just returned from a brilliant trip to Rio. We spent a few days in Paraty, Buzios and Rio itself. All our transfers were done through Glayber and his company and I can't praise them enough. It took away any stress when it came to moving from one place to the next. Great company.

My mother and I took a very nice day tour with Glayber in January. Glayber is a very good tour guide - punctual, organised, and knows Rio very well. We had a very nice trip to Sugar Loaf mountain early in the morning before it opened (7:30am) allowing us to be at the front of the queues and enjoy the... More

I'd booked Glayber way in advance (like the preceding February) for all day tours January 2 and January 3 and I'm so glad I did. Glayber is smart,super organized and very personable. The first day he took us to Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer. The crowds were crazy, but of course, Glayber already had tickets for us for these attractions... More

We had a fantastic day in Rio with a group of 10 where my father was in need of a walker and a wheelchair & we had 4 kids between the ages of 12 - 18. Glayber raced us around town and we covered way more than what was provided to others on our cruise. He managed to get us... More

Glayber Silva did a fantastic job of showing us around Rio on New Year's Eve, when the city was hard to navigate. He organized a van for 10 people, pre-bought attraction tickets, avoided extra time waiting in lines, included a great churrascaria lunch stop, and worked out an unscheduled afternoon stop at Copacobana beach for our kids and grandkids to...
