Marcos was an exceptional guide. We felt (4 of us) that we were visiting Rio de Janeiro with a friend. He was informed, providing historical perspective, and his English was excellent. Marcos' Rio became our Rio. He was a cautious driver in the midst of chaotic traffic and always gracious, respectful and informative. His knowledge of Rio was so great that an 8 am to 4 pm tour was not sufficient. I cannot give him any grade but an A+++.

Having Marcos as our very knowledge and personable guide really made Rio com alive with history and culture supporting our visit to the key sites. We were able to see a major portion of the city with someone who knows and lives this area. Really important when time is short.as it is with. Cruise tour.

Marcos is extremely nice and flexible. We had a rainy day and he altered the schedule as needed to make the best of the situation. He guided our group through each of the sites well and made us feel very safe and high priority at each site. He offered insight into some of the areas we traveled.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you guys, I’m glad that you enjoyed the city and the tour ! I hope to see you guys again Regards Marcos

Marcos is an outstanding guide. He is thoughtful, knowledgeable, and really cares about our interests. During this tour, he not only took us to what's on the itinerary, but showed us special spots to have spectacular views for picture taking. He is fun to be with and lots of local information about history, culture, civic life of Brazil and Rio to share with us. If you are interested in good places to eat in Rio, Marcos will be your guide. Marcos helps us to create wonderful memories in Rio.
Marcos was a wonderful guide. Lots of communication beforehand. We arranged a private tour for just the two of us. Our ship was late clearing customs but Marcos just changed the order of things to best suit traffic and crowds and knows the tricks with parking etc. He took us to some really interesting areas with local organic cafes and artisan shops. We would've loved to have done his night tour of bars and food stops but he was already booked! Highly recommended guide and a really nice guy.

Marco's tour met all our expectations. His English was very good. He accompanied us everywhere explaining it all. His timing with cable car and funicular was perfect.

Marcos was a great guide. Our day out was difficult as it was in the middle of Carnaval but we were met on time and taken to the sites we wanted to visit . Marcos knowledge of the city was exemplary and he is a thoroughly nice guy so can highly recommend .

Marcos provides a tour of Rio that includes visiting Sugarloaf, Christ the Redeemer, Ipanema Beach, many neighborhoods, including a favela, Seladon Steps, and also surprises like a hang-gliding site and a canal- boat ride with lunch on an island. Good-nature combines with a thorough knowledge of his subject to make for a super experience for all. Thanks to Marcos' introduction, we came away loving Rio the most in S.A.

Marcos was awesome! We traveled with a 3 month old baby and he was super accommodating. He's the reason we will be back in Rio - the best tour I've ever gotten. He treats you like a friend rather than a customer. Even through the crowds he would make room so my wife, child, and I could take pictures against famous monuments.

Great guide. Would highly recommend to other Rio visitors.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Terry and Steven!
A gorgeous tour with a great guide, really prepared, professional, and truly dedicated.
Excellent guide! Marcos is a pleasure to be with. He makes the day a Great Day and you can tell that he really loves his city. At the end of the day, it started to rain very hard and our last stop was Sugar Loaf. Marcos offered to do this tour later on that day or the following day after he was done with his next clients. We really appreciated this gesture. Highly recommend Marcos!

This was our first day with Marcos. He was punctual, spoke excellent English, was engaging, interesting and amenable with a good sense of humour. His car was modern, spacious and very comfortable. He is an excellent and safe driver. Our tour was efficiently organised to minimise waiting and we ate and drank in very good establishments. He happily made small changes to the itinerary which added to the overall interest of a thoroughly excellent tour delivered enthusiastically by an outstanding guide. Super!
