Solid, efficient tour of Rio with very good selection of sites within time available. Some we had not heard about but were happy to see. Michael is an excellent, guide with fluent English, great local knowledge and a good understanding of guests requirements. We were met on time as soon as we left the cruise ship and delivered promptly to the airport as planned. Vehicle was clean and comfortable. I recommend Michael without reservations. He knows Rio inside out. Monique

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Monique. It was a great tour!!! All my best!!!

We contacted Mike by email and he sorted 3 tours of Rio. Two with himself and one with Marco. I can honestly say that the 3 tours were the highlight of our trip to Brazil. We went to all the places you would expect, but we ate and drank in local cafes and bars and visited places off the normal track. I cannot praise these 2 guides highly enough. Regardless of what type of trip you have planned these guys will make it one to remember for a lifetime. Thanks guys, see you next time we are back in Rio.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much brother. I had a great time with you guys. A lot of fun and laughs for 3 days!!! All my best!

Michael is very very nice. He took good care of me and my wife, we feel safe during the whole tour. Also he is very experienced, able to maximize our time in Rio by having a very good plan in the city. He even helped us to book a nice place for dinner. We had a good chat and learn a lot about Rio and brazil culture. I would definitely recommend him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Alan and Jessica for this wonderful time together. We had a great day!!! All my best...

It is clear that Michael loves his city!!! We had a wonderful, fun and informative 2 days with him exploring Rio. Transportation is clean and comfortable. Michael is quick on his feet and able to adjust plans as needed. We had some changes due to weather as well as the tram to Christ the redeemer breaking down. we waited a little bit for it to be fixed. When it was not Michael dove us to the top as not to miss the site. He also went out of his way to accommodate our needs, as I was feeling ill 1 day.

We spent two days with Michael. He's very personable and very knowledgeable about Rio. He was able to plan our itinerary so we visited popular sights at times when we missed the crowds. I was impressed with his ability to "read" our group of six and propose activities we'd enjoy. He gave us an enjoyable and interesting introduction to the city. Highly recommended.

Michael was organized, had thought out our itinerary in advance based on an exchange of emails, was informative, shared with us his personal life in Rio de Janeiro, and worked hard in advance to arrange for a part of the tour which was not easy to arrange without an advanced effort. I'd recommend Michael to anyone who wishes a tailor-made tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you one more time May, we had a beautiful day with a lot of cool pictures. Cheers!!!

My colleague and I are so thankful to have connected with Michael for a 5hr private tour of Rio and also a Samba/Lapa/Rio by night tour. Michael was energetic, fun, extremely knowledgeable of the city, spoke excellent English, and he made our Rio trip amazing. He tailored the tour to our liking and identified great spots for pictures of Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf. We had so much fun touring the city and checking out the night life with him. My colleague and I highly recommend Michael!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Lan. We had a fantastic tour and was really fun. We ruled the night life. What was that tour??? Fantastic!!! I will miss you guys. All my best guys!!!

Would very highly recommend. Thanks a million Michael. Bob, June, Eddie and Sheila from Scotland.

Michael is everything you could hope for in a guide. He is friendly, outgoing, well informed, obliging and flexible. He loves to impart his knowledge of and passion for Rio, and was quickly able to calibrate what was of interest to appeal to both parents and kids. As we had very limited time available, he was able to start very early and prioritised the tour based on our interests. His English is fluent (not always a given in Brazil) and his humour and energy are infectious. He's also a safe driver.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Catherine, it was a pleasure working for you. All my best.

My husband, our daughter and I booked a 6-hour Rio de Janeiro tour. Our guide - Michael - very easy going, humorous, knowledgeable, with perfect English and just a handsome guy :) was just AWSOME!!! He showed us Rio like we would never discover ourselves: hidden gems, known just to locals, history and entertainment and ALL tailored to our taste and wishes. Time flied: we could hardly believe that 6 hours were already gone. Thank you Michael for sharing your love and passion for Rio. We now love it too.

We had the most wonderful travel experience during our cruise ending in Rio de Janerio. Michael S. was our tour guide. He was very efficient, thoughtful, caring and friendly, a real professional! Not to mention he was so nice, fun, handsome and sweet! He took good care of us, tailored easy tours for feeble seniors but covered all the must-sees in the beautiful city within two days. We would definitely recommend him to travelers who want great fun time in Rio. He is a natural, perfect for the job!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Vivian. We had fun. All my best...
