        A night out in Rio!
        Fabio is your guy if you want to see Rio by night in all her glory! He took us to some amazing spots that we either wouldn’t have known about or would have been clueless about the logistics even if we had 😅 He was the perfect ambassador of fun and knew all the best spots! It was our last night in Rio and was unforgettable. Would highly recommend!

        Family trip to Rio
        Fabio and his driver were excellent. Lots of energy and positive vibes. Rio is beautiful. Not sure how we could have seen so much without your help. Thank you Fabio.

        A fantastic tour of Santa Teresa
        A great tour of Santa Teresa and the Selaron Steps. Fabio was very knowledgeable and took me to all the sights that I requested.

        This Is THE Guide To Book With!
        Fabio is a fantastic guide!! He is so knowledgeable about Brazilian history and knows where all the hidden (and not so hidden) treasures are which he will take you to and give you context and insights you simply wouldn’t have if you visited them on your own. He also is just a really fun guide to hang with and will structure the tour to your interests. Strongly recommend!!

        Great Day with a great guide
        Fabio showed us around Rio in the best manner possible. He is pleasant and understands what his customers want. He knows a lot and will share when asked, but He does not lecture for hours which we were happy about. He did our group an extra favour for free - and this is How He is. We couldn`t have had a better Day.

        Rio from a different angle
        I’ve seen all major attractions and wanted something different. Fabio took me to places I didn’t know before. Places of cultural significance as well as places of natural beauty. I was very happy with this variety and had an excellent and interesting day.

        Would be hard to beat
        This was the first of three trips we made with Rio Cultural Secrets. The others were to Botanic Gardens and Tijuca National Park and Vidigal Favela. Fabio was an exceptional and knowledgeable guide and helpful. For example the day we were to visit Christ the Redeemer it was shrouded in cloud. So he suggested we swap the visit with the Botanic Gardens and combine Christ the Redeemer with The Tijuca National Park the following week. This worked really well and to top things off he managed to add at short notice an afternoon trip to Vidgal Favela following the morning trip to the forest. A totally wonderful experience all in

        A Great Rio Day Trip
        My family and I had a wonderful day with Fabio in our visit to petropolis. Fabio arrived promptly and had no problem waiting for our teenagers to arrive. We had an easy (80 minute) drive to petropolis and spent several hours in this historic town. We had ample time at the highlights (primarily the imperial museum) and a lovely lunch. If you are interested in Brazilian history/Pedro II, this is a terrific day trip from Rio.

        Two Fantastic Private Tour Days of Rio with Fabio
        My friend and I wanted a fun and informative tour of Rio. We booked two days with Fabio Mendonca who owns and operates Rioculturalsecrets.com and it was perfect. Fabio is a native of Rio, and he is your tour guide. It was great learning about Rio from a native. His website is very informative and he designed the two tour days to match our interests. His communications were prompt and efficient, he arrived on time with a nice vehicle, and he is just fun to be with. We communicated by e-mail and paid him through pay pal in April for our August tours. Don't hesitate, if you want to have a Rio guide, he is the best.

        Awesome Tour
        We booked 3 private tours with Fabio and all three were amazing. He was a wealth of knowledge about Rio and gave us an authentic and safe experience. I highly recommend booking with Rio Cultural Experience.

        Private tour from Rio to Buzios
        We had a wonderful time with Fabio. We had a 1 day private tour and he took us from Rio to Buzios. He is a fantastic and safe driver. He taught us many things about Rio and the surrounding regions. Along the way, he took us to many beautiful beaches and we went on an amazing boat tour. When I go back to Rio, I’ll contact Fabio for another tour. I’ll also recommend his tour to friends and family.
