Michael S

Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil

My name is Michael and I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

At the age of 12, I moved to Florida where I finished middle school at Boca Middle. I moved back to Rio after living 10 years in United States. I finished the Guides course at Marc- Apoio (EMBRATUR).

The best tour guides bring a destination to life with their passion and that what I do.

I have a lot of experience conducting in Rio, but I can also take you to the nearby cities: Niteroi, Petropolis, Buzios, Angra dos Reis, Ilha Grande and Paraty.

I am a cosmopolitan citizen, cultured and very fun! You will love my itineraries, they are quite varied and unique, ready to please any customer who wants to find out the cultural secrets of the "Marvelous City".

Rio is not only the most beautiful city in the world, it is rich with culture and history. And since this is a private tour, the focus is on making the tour the way you want it!

Get off the beaten track and come discover Rio with me !

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop to look around once in a while, you could miss it. "




A Recent Review of this guide

Great tour of all the city highlights with Michael... he has a vast and extensive knowledge because this has been his profession for more than a decade. He also has excellent english from spending many years in American growing up and was very flexible in coordinating what we did and did not want to see. We really enjoyed him... and he made a super restaurant recommendation which was one our best dinners in the city! Thank You Michael.
