Private tour guide in Rio de Janeiro for tailor made tours and assistance.

35 years old, born and raised in the city of Rio de Janeiro and working as a tour guide since 2004.

I have lived one year in California to improve my english skills and 2 months in Mexico to improve my spanish skills.

My tours are flexible and I try to show you the Rio everyone wants to see and a few other hidden gems that only locals know it.

Hotel pick and drop off was timely. Sightseeing trips to Corcovado mountain, Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf, Copacabana was perfectly arranged with advance reservation made. We also got impressed by the... More

The guys are totally flexible with their timings and with the visit. You can customise your own tour or go along with their plan, any way you can't go wrong. They know the city too well and describes the city along your visit. When buying the tickets they take you though the fast track and you don't even have to... More

My company worked with Glayber for all our guests city tours and private airport transfers in Rio during the 2016 Olympic Games. His company is by far one of the most exemplary tour companies I've worked with. Glayber was available via Skype and email at seemingly all hours during the event. When several of my clients had flight delays, Glayber... More

Expensive neighborhood, but it feels safe. Not as many hotel. More locals live in this area, so it is not as touristy.

Our group of 6 had such a wonderful time with our guide Rafa. He was so full of fun yet informative, and also gave us tips for our onward journey to Iguacu and Bueno Aires. Sergio of Glayber was quick in responding to our enquiries and accommodative. I highly recommend them.

Glayber was a brilliant tour guide - giving us the space and time to see Rio at our pace but ensuring we saw as much as possible (at our pace) in the hours we booked for, taking into consideration our interests and requests. His local knowledge was really helpful and ensured no queuing, tasty food and being able to get... More

Glayber picked us up from the airport, took us to exchange money, checked into hotel and went on a private tour. Best trip. Highly recommend him. He is knowledgeable, bilingual speaker, and flexible. Also he plans ahead to save you time.
