          Weather wise dismal, tour brilliant!!
          We were very fortunate to have Alan as our guide for the day in Rio, the weather was very cloudy and misty but Alan made the very most of our time taking us to Christ the Redeemer where we could just about see the statue throughout the gloom and then on to Sugar Loaf where we couldn't see a thing, but he showed us small peaceful squares the Selaron steps,the Catherdral and numerous other places he also took the trouble to take us to a restaurant to book a table for that evening. He is very knowledgeable about the city and made what could have been a wash out day into a very enjoyable one, I can highly recommend him he made our day.

          EXCELLENT Tour & Wonderful Start To Our Rio Holiday!
          We booked a tour that included the Rio Cathedral, Cinelandia Square, Santa Teresa Ruins, Selaron Steps, & Downtown Rio. They customized the tour to places that I personally wanted to see while we were in Rio. Alan responded so quickly to all of our inquiries and it was super easy to book and prepay the deposit. He speaks excellent English, is very knowledgeable of the city, arrived perfectly on time for the tour, and he was excellent company to hang out with for the day. :) The tour itself is a steal - the price we paid for a private tour without having to mingle with another group was super ideal. We had a wonderful time and would recommend this tour company hands down!!! Thank you, Alan!

          The most amazing experience in Rio
          In our recent visit to Rio and after reviewing several tour guides and services, we discovered Alan’s tour services. This was an incredible experience! Alan is not only knowledgeable about Rio but his courtesy, service and connection with his clients is what sets him apart from other tour companies. He is a traveler of the world and it’s so easy to make that connection with someone that can relate to a traveler who just wants to discover that bond with a new place and add the excitement of making the trip an unique adventure. Just to name a few of the highlights that makes this a great tour is that he thinks ahead and prepares your day to enjoy the most of it. Did I mention he knows those specific hole-in-the-wall restaurants and good eats to enjoy along the way? Well, it was the icing on the cake! He will have specific times to visit areas where you don’t feel rushed and you get to enjoy every minute of it. Planning, bonding, learning, and connecting to a place that deserves your attention is what I was able to appreciate from Alan. Highly recommend to try him while in Rio, and explore multiple areas with him. Totally worth your money and time.

          Simply great!
          Alan was a great guide! He took us to all those secret places we would have never found by ourselves. His knowledge of life in the favela was impressive. Never felt unsafe for a moment. Other than that, great fun to hang around with Alan!! Greetings Jos & Reggie

          Rio Private Tour
          I booked two full day private tours of Rio with Alan and would highly recommend him as a private tour guide. He was very responsive to my queries about tour options and helpful in designing my itineraries and made excellent suggestions in line with my interests and preferences. Alan is a terrific guide. He was very knowledgeable and professional – he really gave me a valuable insight into Rio. Also, due to his experience, we were able to navigate the sights on the tour very efficiently without spending too much time in lines, etc. Alan was also warm and friendly and made my two days in Rio fun and memorable. All in all, a great experience!

          The best way to get to know Rio
          Alan is a very friendly, professional and knowledgeable tour guide. He is one of those persons who goes the extra mile and who makes sure you are completely satisfied with the experience. He takes you to all the places offered in the tour and more, explaining very clearly along the way. His tours are very structured, but not rigid. If you want to detour to buy a t-shirt or souvenir, he will drive you to a shopping center and wait for you until you find what you want. He knows great places to eat which will not drain your wallet. We had a great experience with Alan and we highly recommend him whenever you decide to travel to Rio.

          Excellent In Every Curb & Corner!!!!
          We did an extensive tour of Rio de Janeiro and also Petropolis for a couple of days and it has been a truly rewarding experience! Alan who was our private guide was very efficient and has a wide range of knowledge about the history of this spectacular city of Rio de Janeiro as well as Petropolis. One couldn't wish for a better guide to share with us the various interesting and magnificent sights of these two cities. It is certainly worth to do most of (if not all) the tours available and get the maximum out of your trip to Rio de Janeiro.. After our 4 days in Rio, we boarded our cruise vessel that sailed to 8 other cities of Brazil before finally crossing the Atlantic making ports of call to Casablanca, Morocco; Teneriffa, Canary Islands; Madeira, Portugal; Valencia and finally Barcelona in Spain. Though I definitely enjoyed this 24-day cruise, but it was Rio de Janeiro that absolutely captured my heart!!! I and my family will surely be back and there's no better choice for a guide but to hire the services of Alan again... Thank you so much for making our holiday an unforgettable one!!!

          Great Overview
          We were a party of four, just off a cruise with 2 days to spend in Rio. We were so lucky to have Alan be our dedicated tour guide. Great communication from booking to the day of, on time and got us from one site to the next in his vehicle comfortably and safely. A native that knows his city well, we so enjoyed our time with Alan and the city he calls home.

          Wonderful experience
          I went to Rio with my friends, and we didn’t want the crazy tours full of people. We wanted something different. We found Alan thought a referral and it was great! We told him exactly what we wanted and what we were expecting of the tour, he got it immediately and he knew exactly where to take us. We hired him for three days, he picked up us every day in our place (very early by our request) and we finalize in the afternoon. He used to dropped us off where we asked him each day! He is so professional and easy going, he also gave us recommendations and advises for the time that we weren’t with him. It was really helpful and he made our experience in Rio amazing. I recommend Alan 100%! And definitely whenever I come back to the Cidade Maravilhosa I’ll contact him again!

          Great experience
          I was traveling solo to Rio and took up Alan as a guide for a trip around the favelas. He was excellent in knowledge of the local history, took me through the Favélas safe and has a lot of interesting anecdotes about the places. Would totally recommend to anyone who’s visiting Rio!
