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!

My daughter and I enjoyed an exceptional day touring Rio with Manu. Manu picked us up at our hotel with a well maintained private car and experienced driver at the helm. Having a driver created extra touring time that would have otherwise been spent parking and walking greater distances. The day flexed with our interests and weather. Christ the Redeemer... More

From their replies, there was not doubt, that Manu is going to be our guide in Rio. Manu picked us up... More

I don't think you will find a better guide than Manu, EVER. He is passionate about Rio, knowledgeable, personable and you feel like you've known him your whole life. He is also flexible and you can tell he has a good working relationship with other guides and the people who work at the tourist attractions. Manu is unique because he... More

Manu was THE BEST tour guide! He was accommodating to all our needs and adjusted the program to suit that which we wished to see. His historical knowledge and local knowledge was second to none. The car we travelled in was extremely comfortable and nothing was ever to much to ask of Manu and the driver. We took in all... More

Staying in Urca

Neighborhood Profile
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.”
