We booked the 8 hour tour and we enjoyed it! We started the tour at 7:15am which was great because we beat the crowd pretty much on all the tourist spots! He was also gracious to take pictures of us and always made sure we see what we wanted to see. His driving and car were very comfortable (Strong AC was very helpful on a hot and humid day). He was also flexible to change the route / restaurants to cater to our preferences. He even sent us a list of recommendations while on Rio! Book with Michael! :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Donna for the wonderful review. We had a great day with no lines. Happy New Year!!! Cheers.

Michael is a phenomenal guide who made our visit to Rio feel like visiting a friend. We saw all the usual sights, but on our own terms. Michael explained the time it takes to go to the Christ statue as well as up Sugar Loaf and then offered us less time consuming alternatives to see these wonders up close but without spending so much time in lines with other tourists. His suggestions were brilliant!! And by doing that we got to see many things others don't see. Overall a spectacular day!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Charles. We had a wonderful day and got to see a lot of sights without losing time. This was spectacular!!! Wonderful energy!!! All my best!!!
Michael is a very gentle and professional guide. His knowledge is awesome and he knows, how to serve history in a very attractive way. In addition to that you can laugh a lot with him and have fun all the time. Book him, you will definitely not regret!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marcel. I had a great time with you and we had a lot of fun. You are a good friend and hope to see you in Frankfurt. Cheers!!!

Michael did a great job. He was very knowledgable and a great driver. He also went out of his way to help us with a stressful lost luggage situation!! He suggested better timing in order to see the sights before the clouds closed in and the cruise ship crowds created long lines. We would highly reccommend Michael and would use him again when in Rio!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Robert. I am so happy you got your luggage back. Enjoy your trip. Cheers.

Michael was an amazing tour guide. Having spent a great deal of his childhood in Miami, his English is perfect! We were able to visit all the sites specified for our full day tour in Rui de Janeiro, Brazil. We would recommend Michael to anyone planning to visit Rio!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lawrence. We had a great day. All my best...
On Dec 12 2016 we were in Rio & had booked an 8 hour tour with Michael S through ToursByLocals. Our booking time was 9am onwards. Michael suggested that we start at 8am to avoid crowds & was there at 8am sharp. He was very professional & knew about local history, geography & culture. He went above & beyond his mandate during the tour.We were very pleased with his service & would not hesitate to recommend him to others. He is an asset to ToursByLocals. Keep up the good work your organization is doing.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Devika. We had great time together. All my best...
