Flexibility is the key word on the tailor made tours I provide. I’ll help you to create your own tour itinerary, so you can see the places you want, the way you want to see them. I was born and raised in Rio and I’m quite fluent in English and Spanish. For the past ten years I’ve been working as a private tour guide in Rio.

I was in Rio with my niece for the Olympics. I wanted to see some of Rio so we spent a day with Luis. The day is one I will always remember. My niece loves monkeys and Luis was thoughtful enough to pick up some bananas at the market to feed to the monkeys at the Botanical Gardens. We have... More

We visited Rio in February. Luis gave us a day tour of Rio. Luis picked us up from our hotel in Barra de tijuca in the morning. He was early, but i think we were late! Sorry Luis! Luis is a great guide, his knowledge of Rio is extensive, and apart from the sightseeing, it was great to learn about... More

Our trip in Rio was very fun with Luis as our guide. He was very accommodating as he offered us various activities to do, doing whichever we preferred. We wanted to try the local food and buy fruits so he brought us to the farmers market. We wanted to see toucans and so he brought us to the botanical garden... More

Luis is an excellent tour guide that was recommended by a friend who had toured with him previously. We wanted to avoid the tourist traps and see Rio as the locals do. He took us to many places that we never would have found on our own, including going across the bay to Niterói for some amazing views and lunch... More

Luis is a very knowledgeable tour guide, and he took us to a few interesting areas in Rio that I didn't know about. He lived in the US for 8 years, so his English is excellent. Recommended if you are looking for a private guide and want to visit some of the lesser known sites of Rio.

Hiring Luis for our short visit of Rio was the smartest decision we made! He responded to our emails right away, and is very flexible, tailoring his tours to our interests. He picked us up at the airport, and dropped us off at the airport. He is a Rio expert, and we saw everything we wanted to see, and more!... More

Booking with Luis for this trip was the smartest thing we did!! He answered our initial contact, and subsequent questions promptly. Step by step to reserve a spot was very easy, Luis has the knowledge, patience, and experience to show you what you want to see, and also suggest some terrific places only a "local" would know about.

We had a 10 hour layover in Rio. Why waste a day in the airport? We contacted Luis through Tripadvisor and he responded immediately with his availability. He picked us up at GIG at noon and whisked us into the city with a quick drive around the Olympic Stadium. He assessed the weather and suggested we start with a trip... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
