Marcos V.

Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil

Hi I'm 36 now and I was born in Rio de Janeiro, however, I lived in Europe for about 11 years.

In 2010 I decided to come back to Brazil, I became a licensed tour guide and I loved it from the first instance.
I feel very grateful to be able to impact visitors on their holiday, for me, this is a very special moment and as a well-travelled guy I take it very seriously.
I love what I do, being a tour guide can be very challenging, tailoring up for different people expectations makes every day different.

I believe that if you found this website it's because you are looking for a unique experience and that's what I like to do, I enjoy building the tour differently from the majority including many hidden spots and not so touristic areas.
I invite you for an unforgettable holiday in our city providing transportation, information, professional skills and friendship.

My tours can be designed according to your specific desires or, in case you are not certain of what to do, I encourage you to browse my pre-plan tours on my profile.
I look forward to hearing from you so that we can create your perfect day in Rio de Janeiro / The Marvelous city!
