During return journey from Brazil, we had one and a half day in Rio. In order to utilize the time and get as much as possible of the visit, we hired a private tour guide, and the choice fell on Marcio Guedes. The planning started before leaving for Brazil, and he suggested where and when to place the different visits... More

I have had the pleasure of touring with Marcio in the past so when another trip to Rio came up, he was my first choice. I will always book with Marcio when in Rio because he genuinely listens and creates a tour that is specific to what you want to do. Example: this time around my friend and I had... More

Mario took special care to show us all the top sights and make sure we were safe. We enjoyed his company and knowledge of the area. We recommend him especially for the olympics coming up.

After reading great reviews about Marcio on Tripadvisor I e-mailed him with a list of sights we wanted to tour. He always responded very promptly and we booked a private day and a half tour for two couples. We were able to see all of the sights we requested and more. We got started early and arrived at Corcovado and... More

Marcio is the best tour guide we have ever had. We had him for two full days in Rio seeing everything we wanted using our ideas and his own; always on time, very knowledgeable, professional, easy going and a pleasure to be with. With his experience we never queued for the big attractions, walked around Rio in complete safety including... More

Rio is a wonderful city filled with exciting places. Our friendly guide, Marcio Guedes made our two day trip an experience to be remembered with great fondness. Not only is he absolutely fluent in English having studied in the US but he knows his city intimately. Mario took us to all the places on our bucket list like Christ the... More

Me and my partner was looking for a private tour to see the Selaron steps and found exactly what we was looking for when booking with Marcio. So full of knowledge about the steps and the city itself. Wish we had booked in with him for other tours! Had a great day out and was a positive experience so I... More

Marcio is not only a friendly and professional guide, but also one of the most knowledgeable ones I've used. There wasn't a question that he wasn't able to answer. I enjoy all the "touristy" fun - and he certainly provided that, but I'm a very curious person and want to know a lot about any destination I'm visiting. Marcio was... More
