We spent 3 fantastic days exploring Rio with Marco! Being in Rio for only a few days and wanting to see as much as possible...Marco facilitated every aspect of our explorations. Having decades of experience in Rio and a seemingly bottomless interest in architecture, arts, music, food, culture, flora and fauna his breadth of knowledge is staggering. Not only was he a wealth of knowledge and could answer nearly every question we through at him, he knows the city so well he can navigate safely and quickly to get you to next site or restaurant etc. We had many great conversations with Marco and when we return to Brazil would not hesitate to gather with him again.

We did the historical tour with Marcos. We saw all the major spots and some really sweet hidden treasures. Marcos knew very well all downtown rio de janeiro, full of great histories and curious facts, either historical, architectural and social. We simply loved the tour!

At short notice we decided for a tour through one of the favelas. The hotel organized us tour guide Marco Bransford within a couple of hours. Having made use of personal guides in many cities around the globe including Rio previously, we easily can say that Marco is among the top five percent in our experience. Grown up locally he is fluent in English, tremendously knowledgeable with great depth on any subject, is reading the minds of his clients before they know what they want to say or ask, very smooth in dialoguing and communication, open minded and with a high level of expressing joy naturally. We felt safe in the favela visited, in his (clean) car, and the local restaurant we went afterwards. Thank you, Marco, for the great afternoon. We will be back for another tour with you. Bruno and Carol from Switzerland

Marco was an incredible guide that really helped us get insider information on the Imperial Palace and the city of Petropolis. He drove us from Rio to Petropolis offering information along the way! He was extremely flexible and attentive to what we wanted to do during the tour, letting us set the pace. He also took us to a wonderful home with beautiful extensive gardens for lunch after our touring. He was very COVID conscious (mask, clean car, lots of hand sanitizer, and driving with the windows down when possible). At the end of the tour he even helped us find a place that would offer a Covid test for our way back to the US the next day. He really goes the extra mile to make your tour great!
