We are family of 2 adults and 12 years old child and it was our first visit to Rio. I decided to book private tour with Luis for our 1st day in Rio and choice could not be better. Everything was easy and perfect, from booking and tailoring the tour, picking up at the hotel and returning back.
Luis made our first day in Rio as unforgettable experience. Luis really loves this amazing city and he really loves and enjoy his job as a guide. He is happy to talk about Rio, nature, which plants are eatable. He is fluent in english and he is full of informations about Rio de Janeiro, history, economy, flora and fauna. He took us to almost all attractions in Rio de Janeiro (Corcovado, Tijuca forest, Santa Theresa, Selaron stairs, Metropolitan Cathedral, Leblon, Copacabana and Ipanema beach, Sambodrome) and provided us with a lot of interesting informations ( we will never forget about Embauba). We made a short break at the farmers market and we were able to taste all possible tropic fruit from the market, coconut water, juice from sugar cane, typical Brazilian Pastell. He took us on the other side of the bay to Niteroi, to Contemporary art museum designed by Oscar Niemeyer and after that we enjoyed nice lunch in restaurant which Luis recommended. At the end of wonderful day we enjoyed a breathtaking view and sunset over the Rio de Janeiro and Guanabara bay. May be the best view of Rio de Janeiro. At the end of the day he returned us to hotel.
Luis is an excellent tour guide, we really enjoyed our day with him and I recommend him as the best choice for private guided tour in Rio de Janeiro.
Luis, thank you for a memorable day in Rio and for fantastic tour.
