Marcio is a great tour guide. He is very knowledgeable and knows the best places to take pictures even when it’s crowded. I would recommend him! He even took us around the area so that we could have better experienced Rio.

Indie R Customer

We had the chance to meet Màrcio who was an expert and kind guide through this beautiful city that is Rio de Janeiro. Despite the time constraints, we managed to see the main attractions and have a great lunch. Really recommended!

Davide R Customer

Our experience with Marcio was great. He took not only to the usual "must see" places, but to see and experience other out of the way sights. He speaks perfect English and is super accommodating. My wife wanted to buy some local jewelry , at reasonable prices but a reputable place and he took us to the perfect place. He was always on time and never in a rush. Highly recommended.

Israel C Customer

Marcio is amazing! He was prompt with picking us up at our hotel. He had a plan with activities to do and was agile with a last minute request with a helicopter tour of Christ the Redeemer and was able to get us in right away. With his connections, he was able to skip the lines for Sugar Loaf and other sites we wanted to see. His car was clean and we felt entirely safe the whole time. He is knowledgeable of the city and helped us with language barriers. To be a guide, you need patience and he was patient. Thank you Marcio! We had so much fun!

Ericka J Customer

Marcio was absolutely Fabulous. We were on our way up to see Christ the Redeemer and overheard Marcio giving an excellent private tour to the family behind us. We were so impressed with how fun, charismatic and insightful he was and we wanted to spend time with him ourselves. We introduced ourselves and were able to book a tour the next day with him. He took us to sugar loaf, the rainforest and we even went on a helicopter ride. Marcio shared so much history on Rio and all of the areas we went to. I feel like I know so much about Rio because of him. Thanks so much Marcio. We appreciate you!
