Whilst not limited for time in Rio I really wanted some beach and pool time whilst still experiencing all the wonderful things Rio has to offer. Marcio Guedes was the perfect guide. Together we worked out the sights I wanted to visit and Marcio executed brilliantly. We never really had to queue and Marcio is incredibly knowledgable on everything Rio.... More

Marcio was very good took myself and a friend to Christ the Redeemer to the Cathedral and Selaron Steps and all around the city. He was very attentive and had a superb and interesting knowledge of the city. On my experience I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend him.

Marcio offered a varied and informative tour of Rio. He picked us up from our hotel and took us to Corcovado where we rode up on the early train to Christ the Redeemer. He has a wealth of knowledge and truly enriched our experience. After that we visited Ruins Park. Marcio also took us to Lapa and Santa Theresa area... More

This was my third trip to Rio and I have booked a tour with Marcio every time. Many reasons including: - Security first. As world travelers we know what matters most. Marcio understood the safe and not safe areas to visit and ensured our security first. - English. Marcio has lived in the United States and speaks flawless English. -... More

As someone who has worked in media for 30 years and travelled around the world I certainly know the value of an excellent driver and fixer. Rarely do you get both, but in the case of Marcio Guedes you most certainly do. I would have no problem whatsoever recommending Marcio for future work.

Having Mario show us around Rio on our first full day made an enormous difference in the depth and quality of our travel experience. We cannot recommend him enough. He is friendly, knowledgeable, interesting, a font of information about all things Brazilian, and a good conversationalist and guide. He's very efficient and managed to fit in everything we had asked... More

Spending three weeks in Rio for business, our group could not have asked for a better guide/translator/driver/expert than Marcio. His expertise and knowledge of the city was second to none, and he went the extra mile to fulfill the tasks we were trying to complete. I would highly recommend Marcio to any individual or group planning on visiting Rio.

Marcio speaks English very well so that gave me a positive impression that I would learn from him. He is knowledgeable about his country's history and about contemporary issues. He is a very good driver, a pleasant person and efficient. I saw much more and learned much more than I would have on a bus tour or by myself. I... More

We wanted to fit all the main sights into one day in Rio. Marcio was the perfect guide. He expertly got us around Rio and efficiently into all the sights we were interested in. His knowledge of Rio was outstanding and he was very friendly and personable. I would recommend him highly to anyone visiting Rio.

Marcio was an excellent guide and fixer throughout the Olympic period in Rio. He was very thorough in his research of various attractions and tailored his work to our specific needs as journalists. We asked him to assist us with many requests that your usual tour guide wouldn't normally accommodate (such as setting up feature TV stories) and Marcio delivered... More
