Marcus was just a fantastic guide. He is a Fluent English speaker who made our trip to Rio most enjoyable and unforgettable. His knowledge of the City was fantastic as was his knowledge of the history associated with this vibrant and interesting city. Although rain was forecast, we were lucky, and had no rain at all, but were unable to go up to the Statue of Christ the Redeemer as it was covered in mist. We saw everything else though, and Marcus made it all fun. Highly recommend him. 5*.

Marcos was the best. He made us feel welcome and was extremely competent. He was able to adjust our schedule so we could see the Christ the Redeemer statue during a two hour cloudless window. I would highly recommend him as an excellent guide.

Marcos was a great guide! Right on time to pick us up, very knowledgeable of his city. Made sure we were seeing the things we were most interested in seeing. Flexible in planning our itinerary. It was great that he was in touch with other guides to know of potential problems with traffic or road closures. Such a pleasure to spend an afternoon with. I would definitely recommend Marcos, and would also use him again if we came back to Rio. Thanks so much Marcos!

Superb tour, well presented by Marcos who was informative, energetic and well organized. He was especially good at coordinating a very busy itinerary allowing us to avoid some bootlenecks. We saw a lot in our 8 hour tour and would not hesitate to recommend him highly. A great day. Everybody on the tour (17 of us) was very pleased. Looking forward to our next visit in Rio.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much !!

Our group of four people had an excellent day with Marcos. Marcos speaks very good English. He was very enthusiastic, patient and considerate. We were pleased to learn a lot about the city of Rio and its main attractions. He had an excellent suggestion for our lunch and made sure we were well taken of. He made a somewhat overcast day brighter and more fun for us.

It was an excellent 2 days tour with Marcos. The first day was foggy. But Marcos was able to adjust the itinerary so we were able to visit Sugar Loaf when there was a break in late afternoon. The next day we visited Christ the Redeemer. Despite the huge crowd, everything went smoothly and expeditiously. That would not be possible without the hardwork and ingenuity of Marcos. He is knowledgable, accommodating, and lots of fun. He puts together a customized tour that fits our needs. Thank you Marcos !

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey guys, I’m overwhelmed by your review, it means a lot to me, thank you so much. All the best, let me know when you get back to Rio.

Having Marcos in the beginning of our trip set the bar for the rest of the vacation. Nothing surpassed him. He took control of our day (based on what we wanted) and gave us an experience of a lifetime. We truly got a feel for the country he loves... he left nothing out! Worth every cent for his professionalism, knowledge, care for his clients, and adorable personality! We felt like family by the time we left him to board our ship. It should also be noted that he responded promptly to all my emails!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Ellen, your review means a lot to me, I really would like to see you guys again! All the best..

We have been blessed with many excellent guides around the world, but Marcos is, in two words, THE BEST! Gifted with instinct and intuition, and an ability to adapt at a moment's notice, he is a perfect guide. He negotiated traffic jams, weather issues, sold out tickets, and ensured the four of us had a glorious, memorable day in a cloudy Rio. We went everywhere, including Corcovado and Sugarloaf, and still had time to explore and walk. Don't skip Santa Teresa! A rich, unforgettable day, thanks to Marcos.

Marcos is a great tour guide - highly recommended. We booked this tour for friends visiting Rio. We wanted them to see the highlights in one day, so they could relax for the rest of their trip. Marcos did exactly that. Best comment from our friends: "It wasn't like he was reading from a guide book, like so many guided tours ("This was built in 1930, yada yada yada. Instead, we had a day-long conversation with Marcos about everything we were seeing. It was the most personalized tour I've ever had."

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Jeff, I’m very happy about the review and to know that your friends had a great time! Thank you.

Marcos was a great guide. He was at our hotel a few minutes early and planned the day based on when things would be least crowded. We got on an early train to Christ the Redeemer so it wasn't so crowded. Marcos is very knowledgeable and personable. We had a thoroughly enjoyable day. He made suggestions for some things to checkout the next day on our own - a cafe and the Portuguese Reading Room - great stops.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Rhonda, I’m glad that you when to Colombo and the Portuguese Library, great places. Let me know when you guys come back to Rio!

We are very pleased to Marcos for perfect expierance of Rio, especially for his care about us - orginizing helihopter tour (brilliant) and spending his free time for bringing us to sugarloaf as it was not possible on the day of tour because of very cloudy weather. During our short beeing together we got like old friends, very good english and perfect attention to his job, a lot of interesting and usefull information about Rio and Brasil in general. Thank you Marcos!!!!

More than exceeds your expectations. Now i know that sounds sort of like a backhanded compliment, but this guy finds off the beaten path stuff that is off the beaten path of the "off the beaten path." He had us laughing from the minute we got in his car. If you're looking for something other than your picture in front of the same things as everybody esle, Marcos is your guy. Highly recommended.
