Graduated in Tourism, I have worked as head concierge at a 5 star hotel when I became the second President of the Golden Keys Brazil (International Association of Concierges - I am a Clefs D'Or Honoray Member). I have also worked in the Brazilian Embassy in London, in the travel and hotel industries , and in leading global companies.
I have decided to become a guide based not only on my previous work experiences but also on my interests in cultural life and high standard traveling. As a "Carioca da Gema" (born and raised in Rio) I have covered the streets and quarters of the city and its surroundings. I enjoy discovering unique and interesting places worth remembering. In this way I can plan and put together a most exciting tour of the Wonderful City.
A Recent Review of this guide
My partner and I were extremely happy with our tour of the City of Rio on February 17, 2019. Sharing our interests with Marco, Marco was able to give us a very interesting and fascinating tour of the city, including the architecture, insight into the culture, and the history of the people of this fascinating city. He had the insight and timing to pull us away from other tours so we saw more without waiting in lines. We managed Christ the Redeemer before a storm moved in. We loved Marco!
