    A tour with Claudio is the best way to see Rio!
    Claudio is such an incredible guide - we only had a short time in Rio and he crafted two incredible tour days for us, ensuring we had a full Rio experience in the short time we had. I think it would have taken us 4-5 days on our own to do what we did with Claudio in two days. He knows all the tips and tricks to get the best views and experiences at each location, saving a lot of time that would be otherwise spent waiting around or trying to navigate. Claudio is incredibly interesting, kind, funny, knowledgeable and a wonderful ambassador for the city of Rio -- he made our trip so memorable and we are so grateful! Thank you Claudio!

    Top Notch two days tour
    We only had a short time in Rio and wanted to see as much as possible in the few days that we had. We couldn’t be more grateful to Claudio and the two days of personalized tours he put together for us. Kind, classy, funny, knowledgeable, full of great stories and anecdotes, Claudio has lived many lives which adds on to the experience and makes touring with him nothing like a traditional city tour. Thanks Claudio for making our stop in Rio so memorable.

    Exploring w Claudio
    I was introduced to Claudio by the owner Casa Beleza in Santa Teresa after the 1st day I arrived. On the 2nd day, Claudio & I walked around Centro & saw my sites. I ended up having lunch as well. If you need a tour guide, Claudio is your guy! (Thx Claudio)

    Warmest recommendations!
    I give my warmest recommendations for Claudio. As a family of four (kids 11 and 14) it is not an easy task to please all family members during a long historical walk across multiple sites, but Claudio managed this in the possible way. He is extremely knowledgeable and at the same time communicative and an attentive listener, so the entire family had a wonderful day with him, enjoying all the sites and learning about them, the history of Rio, and even contemporary politics. I would easily meet up with Claudio again next time we visit Rio - I expect it would take many trips to exhaust his deep knowledge.

    Historical tour
    The trip was amazing. Claudio had a lot of historical knowledge of Rio, and took US to the most exciting places I could inagine, including beautiful churches, a nice café and the imperial palace. I don’t think there is a better guide in all of Rio.

    Best tour guide I've ever had!
    Claudio was I think the best tour guide I ever had. He was punctual, knowledgeable, resourceful, very kind and funny. He told us many interesting stories in the time we spend together. He is a humble, kind and genuine man who's stories really makes the tour come alive. I know this all sounds very superlative, but it truly was. I would highly recommend going on a tour with him - doesn't even matter which one because his personality makes the trip. He even helped us out in a time of need for which we are eternally grateful. Moreover, the tour itself was incredible and we are happy to have seen the things we wanted to see in the short amount of time we had in Rio. Many thanks Claudio!!

    Fantastic, inspiring tour with Claudio
    We requested a walking tour with Claudio, let him know we were interested in art and history, sent him a wishlist and we could not have asked for a better day. Claudio took us everywhere we wanted and more. The tour really fulfilled our wish for inspiration, perspective and awe that comes with travel. We learned so much and it was so effortless to have him map out everything. Claudio is himself an artist, shares his appreciation of art and architecture and has a wealth of knowledge about the history of Brazil and Rio. We had our 7-year-old with us and Claudio was very kind and patient, stopping for ice cream, pao de queijo, chasing birds and the like. I do wish we had begun our stay in Rio with this tour. We would have loved to see more of the city with Claudio's perspective. He loves his city and it shows!

    An excellent & knowledgeable guide!
    1. Claudio - Claudio was an excellent tour guide. He spoke perfect English and was very knowledgeable about Rio de Janeiro. He was very relaxed and flexible and managed to fit in an incredible number of places of interest in the time available. He was accompanied by a driver, Marcelo, who stayed with the car while we did our tours. They were a good partnership and Claudio was very helpful whenever we needed anything like a cash machine or somewhere to eat. Claudio’s communication in setting up our tour and making sure he included everything we wanted to see was also excellent and very prompt. All in all, we would highly recommend him to you and would definitely use him again.

    Fantástico
    Claudio is wonderful and very knowledgeable about the city and its history. He took us to all of the places that we wanted and some extra spots he thought we’d like. We had a fantastic driver Mr Daniel! We had a group of 6 ladies and the van was very comfortable and has cold air conditioning. Claudio is a gem and I highly recommend booking a tour. You will be very happy!

    Tour round historic Rio
    Claudio was highly recommended by our hosts, so we knew we were off to a great start! He made contact before the tour which was really helpful. It turned out we'd already been to a couple of the destinations he was planning to show us, but he was completely unfazed by this and adjusted the schedule accordingly. Not only was a a mine of interesting historical information, we also talked about Brazilian current affairs and related topics of interested. His English is excellent and he was genuinely keen to share his love of this amazing city with us. When I come back to Rio I will definitely book another tour with him.

Claudio made our trip. He had the best recommendations, and was able to make the best use of our time! He was so awesome. He ensured we know how to navigate the city alone, even after our tour ended. I highly recommend him, and can’t wait to see him soon!

Claudio is a great guide that is very knowledgeable but most of all a very pleasant and thoughtful guide suitable for young and old.

In my opinion he also a good choice because he is home in so many worlds: bohemian artist but also for the well to do families.
