Manu was a very knowledgeable tour guide. We were there for the Paralympic Games and had only one day to tour the city. Manu was prompt, courteous, knowledgeable and friendly and I would highly recommend his services.

While in Rio for the Paralympic Games, we wanted to be sure to get out and see the lovely city of Rio! After reading several reviews online, we decided against the group tour option and found Manu through his great reviews on TripAdvisor. Having a private tour guide/vehicle was definitely an advantage, as we were really able to get a... More

Our family of four recently visited Rio and decided to engage Manu due to his outstanding ratings on Trip Advisor. We were certainly not disappointed. Our communications with him both at home and in Rio were excellent. He arrived with his driver Marvin promptly on both days and we filled in 7-8 hours with ease whilst encompassing all the great...

This was my second time going to Rio and I wanted to set up a tour. Manu was rated the best and I can see why. He's very personable and not only knows the information inside and out, he's very passionate and enthusiastic about his culture. Would recommend him to everyone!

We really enjoyed our tour with Manu, has taken awhile getting this review done, but better late than never. Manu was so kind and informed, showed us Parts of Rio we would have never seen. Nice driver and very good English. Highly recommend him

This was an outstanding visit and I would thoroughly recommend Manu and his colleague Vitor. We had originally booked Manu but, due to a family problem, he was unable to be with us and arranged for his colleague Vitor to be our guide for the day. Vitor was excellent, very knowledgeable and entertaining. He, like Manu, is a citizen of... More

Manu took all of the hassle out of seeing the main attractions as we were comfortably brought to each place and given the stories behind them and their history. Would recommend Manu to anyone as you won't find a more cheerful, welcoming guide!

Except some car trouble and Christ the Redeemer hiding in the clouds, we had an amazing day and saw main highlights of the city under the professional and fun guidance of Manu!

Staying in Urca

Neighborhood Profile
Urca
Urca is one of the oldest areas in Rio. Known for its incredible views of the city, the neighbourhood runs along Guanabara bay, providing visitors with an opportunity to watch the sunset from one of Rio’s greatest natural treasures: Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de Acucar). It is said that the locals in Urca are “bon vivant,” which is one of the reasons the area attracts people of all styles and ages. Urca is the perfect place to take a stroll and appreciate the area’s beautiful architecture, enjoy a cocktail and some delicious seafood pastries at a bar, or bring a bottle of wine and enjoy it while sitting anywhere along the stone seawall known as the “mureta.”
