Yes all was planned for our trip to Rio for 10 days and we had TOUR GLAYBER all ready and waiting then we had to cancel at the last minute due to a family health issue. Glauber was understanding and we were really disappointed that we couldn't go. In planning our trip GLAYBER was very professional and answered our emails... More

Rio is an amazing city and I'm so glad I had Glayber for a few days to show me around the key sights. As well as being extremely knowledgeable on all the important attractions and history of Rio, Glayber is so friendly and interesting to talk to. He did my airport pick up and drop off as well as showing... More

This is coming a bit late! Me and my friend were in Brazil for the World Cup in June. I was in Brazil last Dec and Glayber had showed me around Rio. Having enjoyed that experience we went with Glayber again in June. He was busy but Carlos from his company guided us this time. In one word, Carlos was... More

My family of seven adults used Glayber for our transfers from Rio airport to our accommodation in Leme during World Cup (and return). We had a LOT of luggage and were worried about the transfer as it was our first time to Rio, and we arrived after midnight right in the middle of World Cup. No problem. Glayber had a... More

To be honest, I was very apprehensive about my trip to Rio. A couple of reasons was the language barrier and being able to find transfers from the airport and back. Thankfully we were put in contact with Glayber. Our driver, Vicente was standing outside customs with a plaque that had our names on it. He spoke very good English... More
