We had a terrific first time in Rio thanks to Luis Darin. He was able to show us all the famous sights on our list in the most efficient way, avoiding the huge crowds, while giving us extra historical information. He also took us to some great, less-famous locations that we absolutely loved, again avoiding the crowds and getting some great food and wonderful views of beautiful Rio from different locations. He was able to accommodate the varied interests of my husband, two children, and myself in two enjoyable days for all. He drove a nice car in a safe manner, gave us plenty of basic information about each location, was available to answer all questions, and allowed plenty of time for photography at each location. He had extensive knowledge and interest in the buildings and architecture, local animals and birds, and the many trees and plants in Rio. Best of all were the stories he told about life in Rio and tidbits of information about the city he clearly loves. We owe Luis for our new appreciation of Rio and are already looking forward to our next visit.
