We contacted Gentil at the suggestion of a coworker. I initially was skeptical of hiring a private tour guide. Gentil proved me skepticism to be false. He is very knowledgeable about Rio and we were able to accomplish a lot within a tight time frame. I strongly suggest using Gentil.

We had the most wonderful time on this tour. We were lucky to have Gentil to show us around. We highly recommend him. He is knowledgeable, he shared with us so much information and because we were the only ones on the tour (as it was low season) we had his whole attention. He answered all our questions and he made us feel really comfortable and it felt like we knew him for years. A very energetic and positive person. We weren't so keen on Rio, but thanks to this tour our opinion has changed 180 degrees. Thanks, Gentil! And maybe we'll see you again one day.

I originally had a tour scheduled with another tour guide but he had a family emergency. Gentil was able to do the tour at the last moment and all turned out fine. I quickly discovered that I need to come back and spend more time so I will be going back in 2017 and see more of Rio and nearby areas. Even then it wont be enough. But it's a start. Gentil was knowledgeable of the areas I wanted to visit and was able to get around the traffic and provide information of the places we visited. We had some interesting talks and including the upcoming elections in both countries. The places we visited…. - Christ the Redeemer - Samba drums at the Carnival parade area - Colonial city center with the San Sebastian Cathedral and the opera house - Selaron mosaic steps - Santa Teresa with the Ruins park from the Lady Laurinda Santos house - Niteroi - Niemeyer museum - City Park at Niteroi with the view of Rio. - Maracana Stadium - Lagoon at Niteroi - Leblon beach mirante

My wife and I never hire private guides, but my sister who recently visited Rio insisted that we hire Gentil. I'm glad we did! We got to see a side of Rio that tourists never see. It's stunning how much he knows- learning the history of each attraction made us appreciate the trip so much more. I'm surprised be doesn't teach history at a university! Personality is very important in a private guide since you'll be spending a lot of time with him/her. Gentil is very personable, a great conversationalist and hilarious. All of this helps to make a vacation an unforgettable, memorable experience to cherish for a lifetime.
