Marco B.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I am a Carioca (born and raised in Rio), who lived in Hamburg, Paris, London , and Manaus and since 1986 have been back to my home city.

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

Highly recommend Marco! We booked two full days to tour Rio with Marco and had a wonderful time. Marco has extensive experience as a guide and superior knowledge of Rio's attractions, history, culture, people, etc. He was fully engaged, responsive to our interests, great conversation and shared a wealth of information. We learned a lot and had fun as Marco knows how to plan and manage an itinerary that is both comprehensive and enjoyable.
