5 out of 5. Micheal, our guide, was knowledgable, flexible, and very accommodating. Exceeded our expectations by far. We will do personal tours like this more often now.

Michael is simply amazing! He's very knowledgeable of Rio and its secrets. He knows the city by heart and we have a blast with him! We have another tour scheduled with him in a couple of days and we can't wait! He speaks fluent English and I would recommend him to all of our friends and tourists from North America. Thank you Michael for a wonderful and unforgettable time and we will see you again soon!

Great day touring with Michael. He picked us up on time and we were on the first train up to see Christ the Redeemer statue. We went to other off the beaten path sites like the Sambadrome and Ruins Park. We enjoyed seeing the modern cathedral and the gilded monastery. Nice lunch with Michael at Aprazivel in the Santa Theresa neighborhood.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wendy, Thank you so much for your great review. We had a spectacular time together. Hope Steve is doing better and will be able to this trip again. You guys deserve it!!! All my best!!!!

Michael was AMAZING. He went SO far out of his way to make sure that we were taken care of. We came to Rio last minute hoping to find somebody like Mike to pull everything together for us. We're so grateful for his selflessness and giving us so much energy and effort. If youre like us, hesitant, not knowing what you're getting into, I hope that you'll give Mike a shot. I have no doubt that you'll end the day feeling honored to have spent some time with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank so much Mike. Hope you guys had a great time in Rock in Rio. It was my pleasure to help you out organizing everything. All my best!!!

Michael was the best guide! He showed us as much as possible things we wanted to see and we learnt a lot of things from him. He was really professional and ponctual and a very nice and relax person. He was also very patient by taking a lot of pictures for us and had really good advices for view points of the city and recommendations. I definitely recommend Michael for anyone who wants to visit Rio :) Julie

If only I could, I would give this beautiful young man a 100 stars!! Michael was prompt in getting back to my initial email, patiently walked me thru what I needed to do to book the tour. He arrived ahead of time and made me feel so comfortable right off the initial handshake/hug. michael is easy going, knowledgeable, presents an honest picture of the culture, the day and I knew exactly what to expect. I could tell he was going to be the best person for me. Couldn't have had a better day & memory

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Diane. We had so much fun with a beautiful weather. You are a sweetheart and lovely person. I hope to see you in LA and you can show me around. Take care.

Michael was excellent. He helped us build where we wanted to go and incorporated our tastes in what we did. He was great company as well along the way. His car was very nice and comfortable. He was a great driver. He had great information for us and knew the right times to visit places to avoid crowds and enjoy our time. We really enjoyed our time in Rio and I believe a big part of that was Michael. Thanks again.

Our Tour of Rio with Michael was an awesome day out for our family. (children 19,16,14). Michael adapted the tour to allow us to maximise our time. He knew how to get around well, and minimise travel time. We had a lot of fun along the way, and he also made sure that we got hat we needed...even trying 3 different banks with us to get some money. Recommendations for restaurants and shows were also provided. Fully recommend Michael for your Rio Tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you such Vaughan, such a beautiful family. I will miss you guys and all the fun that we had. All my best!!!

Michael is an excellent guide. The tour was very interesting and he was able to find the exact balance between sharing his knowledge and our kids' ability to observe. He also was very helpful in providing other information about the city (restaurant, clubs, events). We were a family of 6 and we highly recommend Michael.

Rio was in flood when we arrived, we were doubtful our tour would go ahead. Michael arrived promptly at our hotel despite road closures, mud slides etc.... we had a fantastic day with him, visiting sites we had not even heard of, we just gave him carte blanche, we saw parts of Rio that I'm sure few tourists get to visit. Lunch at a "hole in the wall" cafe was a highlight! Most importantly he is a very safe driver. Ten out of ten!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Helen and Lindsay. It was not a easy decision for me, but we manage to have one of the best days with no traffic and great pictures. I will miss you guys and the Feijoada was great. Cheers!!!

I can't imagine a more perfect day in RIO than our day with Michael! He's knowledgeable, personable and fun (and who doesn't like to have fun?!). He was flexible in planning the day, and showed us things you'd never see on a "canned" tour. We would highly recommend his services for anyone wanting to experience the best of Rio!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Kirby and Steve, we had a wonderful time together. Positive energy and good vibes. I love it!!! Cheers!!!!

We wish there were more stars to rate Michael. Such a wonderful person!! We really loved the day we spent in Rio. Michael is one awesome, patient guy who speaks perfect english and who gave us as much information possible. He went out of his way to show us more than we had planned. He gave us tips for the evening. Rio was wonderful mostly thanks to Michael. Highly recommended!

An amazing day touring Rio with Michael! He is nothing short of wonderful! He is knowledgeable of all the sights and history of Rio de Janeiro. He also has a grasp of timing so that he had a sense of when to be at certain attractions. We were able to fit in both Corcovado and Sugar Loaf as well as a city tour including the Cathedral! He had a wonderful way of knowing how to "beat" the crowds. He is personable, he is fun! We had the best day! Thank you Tours by Locals for Michael!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Pam, we had a busy day but got to see everything. I had such a wonderful time with you guys and just made my day better. Cheers. All my best.

Michael was AMAZING! One of the best tour guides we've ever had the pleasure of touring with. He was right on time picking us up. His car is luxurious and spotless. He is friendly, personable, and a wealth of knowledge about Rio — the history, politics, architecture, everything. His patience was boundless. One person in our group walks with a cane, and he took care of her as if she was his own mother. We never felt rushed, and yet we still got to see everything we wanted to see. We highly recommend him!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much LeeAnne, I had a great time with you guys and would be a pleasure to give another tour in the future. I am lucky to have clients that are friends and always makes my day wonderful!!! All my best.
