Michael was great at doing the agenda and schedule as we wanted. Very flexible and knowledgeable. He helped us put a few things in our short time, that most people don't get to see and it was, and is, greatly appreciated. Thank you Michael!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dave. We had a beautiful morning with outstanding views. Hope you had a great lunch at the Confeitaria Colombo. All my best!!!

Michael did a superb job in every respect. We had great communication leading up to the tour and catered it to exactly the less "touristy" options that we requested. He's very knowledgeable, quite friendly and accommodating, has a new spotless vehicle ... our 1/2 day was perfect in every way. We can't say enough good things about Michael, the tour and the value received. Highly recommended!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mark for the positive review. It was my pleasure meeting you guys. Positive energy and a great friend. Hope to have a chance to visit you in the States for beer and barbecue. Cheers!!!

We took a private, half day tour of Rio de Janeiro with Michael. He is an extremely personable guide with love and passion for the city he lives in. We found him knowledgeable about all the places he took us to. He recommended a great local food place which we absolutely loved! Thanks, Michael for making our stay in Rio special!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Anita, it was my pleasure to show my city. We had a lot of fun. All my best!!!

Michael chose the perfect day to take us to see Christ the Redeemer. He knew all the right places to take amazing photos and the best vantage points to view Rio. Michael is a very gracious guide and accommodated all our requests for stopping to have caipirinhas and shopping.

We loved touring Rio with Michael. He is a charming, affable, and very knowledgeable guide. Indeed, it was like seeing Rio with a friend--the best way. He tailored each day according to the weather and our preference. Our conversations were very lively. Michael showed us sides of Rio that we may never have seen in a big tour. We were able to spend a lot of time at each stop. I highly recommend Michael.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Uma and Usha, lovely time together with a beautiful weather. All my best!!!

Michael is very engaging and got us around to quite a few sites in the 4 hours we had. This was a very last minute booking and he accommodated us on less than 2 days' notice. Also my main request was to see a beautiful sunset and we absolutely nailed it...we took the cable car to Morro da Urca (the first stop to Sugar Loaf). From there we could take fantastic sunset lit photos with Sugar Loaf in the back and the sunset itself towards the hill with the Christ the Redeemer statue. Mission accomplished!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yes, mission accomplished. I am so glad we made it. Thank you Trang. Enjoy your days in Rio. All my best!!!

Michael was again utterly flexible and was willing to change pre-arranged plans (by us) to new ones ! We can't imagine having a more knowledgeable, friendly, flexible or more willing to please guide than Michael!!! We hit the jackpot with him!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. I will miss you guys... had a great time. Let’s get together in Miami next May.

We had a great tour with Michael. He asked what we were interested in and then produced a tour around that. Obviously he was very knowledgeable about the area, but was also very friendly and easy to get along with, chatting about the area, answering all of our questions and giving us a local insight into Rio. We'd definitely recommends him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Anthony. Beautiful family and fun. All my best.

Michael picked us up at the airport (with a large car suitable for many pieces of luggage), conducted a very comprehensive tour of Rio and dropped us off at our hotel. Michael is a very knowledgeable tour guide, personable and spoke English very well. We enjoyed his company and the tour enormously.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank so much Sam and Mimi for the great time together. All my best...

Michael planned a great afternoon for me - a visit to the Santa Marta Favela, a tour of the Santa Teresa area (including a visit to The Ruins), and a chance to see the Seleron Steps. When I told him I was particularly interested in visiting "old" churches, he made sure we visited the Sao Bento Monastery, even though our four hours were coming to an end. The Monastery was a real highlight for me as it is one of the finest churches I've ever seen. I enjoyed every minute of it. Jennifer Hill

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jennifer. The Monastery is really amazing and we had a great time together. Enjoy your other sights. All my best...

Michael solved our problem of having 5 hours to kill after flying in to Rio from Florianopolis before we flew back to the UK. We had 2 days in Rio so had seen most of the usual sites but Michael took us to see stuff we hadn't seen, including a very tasty local Churrascaria. MIchael was a safe driver informative and easy going. I would recommend to anyone else.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jonathan. We had a great day. All my best...

Michael knows Rio inside out; he is always on time and very flexible (changing the order of the visiting spots to align with the weather conditions), an excellent driver, and a great companion (excellent communication skills and very, very friendly). He can put together a visiting program/schedule customized perfectly for the tourist's needs. If you want to have a good (end efficient) time in Rio, get Michael to be your guide (Also, his English is very good; he lived in the States for 10 years or so).

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alexander. All my best...
