I never got around to writing a review online for the fantastic day in Rio my family and I had with Rafa a few years ago. That day really was the best day we had in our three week holiday in South America and it changed the way we saw Rio! Rio is now, still one of my favourite spots in the world and I am heading back later this year. I have already booked a further 2 days with Rafa!
Rafa's knowledge of Rio is outstanding. His humor and enthusiasm is wonderful and his english is perfect.
His emails are full of information and suggestions. He will happily tailor the itinerary to your needs.
We met locals, got to see some unique spots we would have never seen otherwise. Niteroi was a highlight.. I would recommend including this into your tour! And for anyone who loves markets, shopping, food - ask Rafa to take you to Feira de São Cristóvão... we loved it! Hardly anyone speaks a word of english so having Rafa was essential... the food was beautiful and shopping for a few souvenirs was fun. We also visted the wetlands and got to have a ride in a small boat around the area... Loved this and was great to see how the locals lived. Rafa can also take you to the usual tourist attractions too... but its even more special when you see the "real" Rio!
Booking a day with Rafa is a must! Worth every penny... you just couldnt get these experiences with public transport and tour buses packed with people. Really nice to have that personal experience and have a friend in Rio. You wont regret it.
Check out his blog too.. loads of photos etc of places Rafa has been to.
Thanks Rafa! Looking forward to visiting you again soon. Will be sure to get a new review up quicker next time :)
