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 husband and I are architects and Marco prepared a brilliant bespoke tour for us, showing us an eclectic and enchanting mix of buildings, parks and neighborhoods, with references to the history of Rio and famous architects and designers. It was very informative - Marco was able to answer all our questions and give us real insight into local life - and also great fun. In addition, we were in touch before the tour and he offered some excellent tips for restaurants and places to see. Great guide!
