Highly dependable Rio guide
Jul 2021
We got in touch with Gus through friends in Rio, and asked him to drive our family of four around on a tailor-made tour of things that we had not yet gotten around to doing in Rio. Gus is highly dependable and speaks excellent English. He is friendly, knows the city very well and I highly recommend him. We also booked Gus for a couple airport transfers which were perfectly executed :-)

Fantastic Rio guide!
Aug 2020 • Couples
My wife and I visited Rio in early 2020 at the same time as Rio carnival. Tickets to the famous Sambadrone event were sold out, but we got in touch with Gus a week before and he worked tirelessly to get us tickets. He gave us multiple options over the days, and we eventually managed to secure great tickets at a good price, all thanks to Gus.

He also booked restaurants for us, arranged our taxi transfers and took us on a guided tour. So he was instrumental in ensuring that we had a fantastic trip!!

December escape to Brazil
Dec 2020 • Family
We visited Rio for three days in December and had Gus build three very interesting itineraries for the time we had in the city. Gus was great, not just in terms of knowledge but also and perhaps more importantly, in terms of personality! Gus is very organised and knowledgeable but above all, warm friendly and funny. We loved our time in Rio and Gus made our visit even more special!

Awesone Tour Guide/Wedding Planner
Dec 2020
I highly recommend Gus as a tour guide. He speaks fluent English and went above and beyond the call of duty to make our vacation an extraordinary wonderful experience. Gus is friendly, funny, knowledgeable and reliable. He took us on a suburb private tour of Rio, hitting all of the sites such as The Christ, Sugarloaf, Escadaria Selaron's tile steps, tour of downtown Rio and many other attractions. Gus also introduced us to a delicious Brazilian lunch at Fogo De Chao. His vehicle was clean and had A/C.

The most extraordinary task he performed was our wedding. We told him we wanted to get married on a beach and he took care of every detail with much precision. He arranged the wedding on the breathtakingly beautiful, secluded Jacone Beach. We didn't have to worry or take care of anything. Gus completely took over and took care of every detail including the wedding cake, music, champagne, photographer, videographer, drone, flowers, and much, much more!! Our wedding day was a beautiful, memorable day that we will always cherish thanks to Gus's incredible creativity!

You can't go wrong with Gus. We have traveled all over the world and have never had such a remarkable and amazing tour guide!!

Nov 2020
We had a great virtual tour with Gus yesterday for over 90 minutes. We didn't want it to end. It was fun and enlightening. We had a tour a year ago in person and even after a full day, there was so much more to see. By taking the virtual tour, we were able to be safe, entertained, and educated. We loved learning more about favelas. And we didn't have to walk up and down stairs. Gus photos and videos were fantastic. Looking forward to doing more tours. Gus is a friend--not just a tour guide.
