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 booked a full day private tour with Luis on recommendation from a friend as well as based on Trip Advisor reviews. I am glad I did. As I had already seen the major attractions on my own and I wanted to see some different places, Luis tailored the day to my interests (architecture, nature, views, and food). We visited... More

We are grateful that Luis was able to accommodate us last minute. He picked us up at our inconvenient hotel, helped us navigate the Christo with as minimal hassle as possible, brought us to a local restaurant he frequents, and transferred us to the airport for no extra charge. The best part was that he took us to see a... More

Luis was our tour guide in Rio de Janeiro!! Luis was such a personable, accommodating and easygoing guide with immense knowledge of his home city of Rio. On the morning of our tour, we were greeted by Luis and whisked off on an adventure that will remain with me for always! Our group enjoyed the tour immensely that we decided... More

What a wonderful whirlwind tour of Rio we had with Luis! We only had two days in Rio and wanted to have a guide who would teach us the history of the city as well as teach us about the Brazilian culture. He combined all this with the major attractions we wanted to see and added trips to a couple... More

We booked Luis for a private tour based on the reviews and he was definitely outstanding! First of all, he was quick to respond to all our emails and questions before our trip. He picked us up for the day at the hotel at 8am in a nice, new air-conditioned car and we told him to take us to where... More

We were in Rio for the Olympics and decided to take a tour for one full day with a guide. We selected Luis based on some other reviews and were not dissapointed. Luis discussed with us what we wanted to do and then made some other suggestions to include, then we chose the basic itinerary to cover in the day.... More

After a business week in São Paulo, before flying back to Europe I finally decided to visit Rio during week end. I organized a full day tour in Rio (one day) Luis was the best guide I could have ever found. Very fast in answering to my booking request, immediately available. He picked me up in my hotel in Copacabana,... More

We asked Luis to plan an architectural tour of modernist buildings in and around Rio. He consulted with us, sending a list of Niemeyer buildings and answering many questions. On the day of the tour he met the four of us with his car and we visited wonderful buildings by Niemeyer and others. We also asked for other stops and... More

We spent two days with Luis in Rio, a week before the Olympics started. He had established our interest in Photography, wildlife and food markets and tailored the trip accordingly. Very highly recommended, thank you Luis Angus and Cordelia Lamont

Luis was great. We were 4 couples that wanted to see the sites of Rio in one day (which is impossible of course). We loved how well we could understand his English!!! and he is very knowledgeable about the city. Yes, we could have done Christ and Sugar Loaf on our own, but with him we were able to learn...

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.
