Gus was extremely warm and welcoming. He would asked us what we wanted to see and an planned our day accordingly. He knew the short cuts around the city and best spots for time of day to see things. Highly recommend booking your private tour!!

The first thing I noticed immediately was the pride and love Gus had for Rio De Janeiro. I knew we had the right person for the job after speaking with him in the first five minutes. Gus went above and beyond for me, my fiancé, and two friends. Traveling in this time with covid-19 is extremely stressful, not knowing what’s open, not knowing what times you can go to certain places. Gus handled everything for us. He knew exactly when to do everything, he knew all the sights, and he also knew the history of everything. It was a pleasure to learn so much from someone that was as knowledgeable as he is. Now traveling to Brazil you have to have certain Covid testing before coming back. We asked him where we could go to take it and instead of telling us where to go, he had a company come to the place we were staying to have all of us tested, Gus set up to where the nurse taking the tests would send him the results, and he would bring them to us. The following day he did just that! That’s just way above and beyond, but that’s just the type of guy Gus is. I’d like to think not only did we get one of the best tours of Rio de Janeiro, but also made a life long friend! Here’s to you Gus! Thank You for the amazing experience of Rio! Cheers! Juan Vigil

Wow, I am not even sure where to start with our review of Gus and our fairy tale wedding on Jacone Beach. Words cannot express how thrilled we were with Gus and our wedding. Absolutely everything was incredible! From the moment we reached out to him until the end of the wedding day everything was just amazing. He worked with us to create an unforgettable day. Every last detail was perfect. There isn't anything we would do differently. Gus took care of every detail and we loved every second of our special day. Thanks to all of his hard work in making our wedding the best day of our lives, we will cherish our memories forever!

Review of: Tailor made tour
We visited Rio for three days in December and had Gus build three very interesting itineraries for the time we had in the city. Gus was great, not just in terms of knowledge but also and perhaps more importantly, in terms of personality! Gus is very organised and knowledgeable but above all, warm friendly and funny. We loved our time in Rio and Gus made our visit even more special!

Review of: Tailor made tour
I highly recommend Gus as a tour guide. He speaks fluent English and went above and beyond the call of duty to make our vacation an extraordinary wonderful experience. Gus is friendly, funny, knowledgeable and reliable. He took us on a suburb private tour of Rio, hitting all of the sites such as The Christ, Sugarloaf, Escadaria Selaron's tile steps, tour of downtown Rio and many other attractions. Gus also introduced us to a delicious Brazilian lunch at Fogo De Chao. His vehicle was clean and had A/C. The most extraordinary task he performed was our wedding. We told him we wanted to get married on a beach and he took care of every detail with much precision. He arranged the wedding on the breathtakingly beautiful, secluded Jacone Beach. We didn't have to worry or take care of anything. Gus completely took over and took care of every detail including the wedding cake, music, champagne, photographer, videographer, drone, flowers, and much, much more!! Our wedding day was a beautiful, memorable day that we will always cherish thanks to Gus's incredible creativity! You can't go wrong with Gus. We have traveled all over the world and have never had such a remarkable and amazing tour guide!!
