Glayber was an excellent tour guide and made our day in Rio a great experience. He tailored the day to exactly what we wanted to see and do. I would highly recommend his services.

Glayber made what would have been a very daunting trip to Brazil (my first trip to South America)very enjoyable. His professional, knowledgeable, courteous manner along with his impeccable English made it a great experience. Anyone who is about to visit Rio should do themselves a favour and contact Glayber, I only wish I had known about him before my trip... More

Glayber is a reliable, knowledgeable, professional tour guide. When it comes to the essentials, the difference between a wonderful experience and a bit of a let-down, he is first class. He replied promptly to my numerous e-mails and required only a modest down payment. His fee for a private 8-hour day tour is very reasonable. He is punctual -- meeting... More

Glayber is fantastic! He met our group at the airport .... 4 people, yet arriving on 3 different flights all scheduled to arrive within a hour time frame. He met for us at the airport, helped us tremendously with our luggage (a lot of luggage!) and drove us to our hotel. The next morning, he was there to take us... More

Whether it's recommendations for Brazilian barbeque, Italian restaurants, the nuances of Brazilian federal elections, or the history and culture of Brazil in general or Rio de Janeiro in particular, Glayber is the man!
