I truly enjoyed my two 1/2-day private tours with Marcio during my visit of Rio in May. Marcio speaks flawless English, is very knowledgeable of Brazilian culture, history and art. He is very responsive, prompt and flexible. An excellent tour guide to have.

Great driver, Fernando. He was punctual and helpful. He spoke fluent English and knew the route and used the time well. We enjoyed the trip to the imperial museum, the Santos Dumont residence and the panoramic view. Highly recommend this tour.
