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...

Reasonable price for exciting one-day Rio tour plus round trip to Buzios! Very professional guide Guilherme, very open and client-oriented! Special thanks to Sergio for organizing all the staff. Highly recommended! Better to take 2 day tour. Magnificent city!

My wife and I did a full-day tour with Glayber, a really great guy who's both passionate about his home town and very knowledgeable. We particularly enjoyed the view from the Sugar Loaf mountain. From my perspective the Maracana tour was also great since I (like Glayber) am a football (soccer) nut. Great lunch too. All the best from Santiago... More

Took a full day tour with Julio. He picked me up at the hotel at 7:30 am and we went to the Christ statute. Great site and we beat the crowds. Highly recommend going early. We went to St. Therese. During the day there is not much happening in that neighborhood. Also saw the Selaron stairs which are very much... More

Based upon excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, I contacted Glayer in order to book a day tour at the end of our cruise. He was most pleasant to deal with in our email exchanges. He made suggestions, but his main concern was to please us. We were met just after we disembarked by his associate Julio. Julio was very accommodating... More
