In November, 2014 contracted with Carlos Masur for a private tour to be conducted on March 11, 2015 with an English speaking guide. Re-confirmed the reservation on March 9.

Our local friend Roderick was indispensable for us during our stay, and we visited many places with both historical, spectacular and educational content. When being hungry he took us to places were we could have many gastronomic moments. We highly recommend to hire this company in order to have the best out of your stay.

I had never used rent a local friend and was skeptical at first. Both myself and my clients could not have been happier with the experience. He was... More

I had done quite alot of research on the sites prior to our arrival, and while taking our wishes into consideration Sergio also offered some additional suggestions. He... More

We visited Recife in January 2012 and contacted Sergio through the Rent A Local friend website. He was always quick to response and happy to either suggest places to go or more than happy to accommodate what we were looking for. Sergio speaks excellent English and Portuguese which was great as we had both Australians and Brazilians in our family.... More

He met us from the ship and we did a tour which was most informative and flexible. There were some paces of interest we wished to visit and... More
