Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil

A certified Tour Guide for the last sixteen years, I say Rio de Janeiro is one of the most exciting cities in the world.

As a carioca (name given to those who are born in Rio), I may say that and certainly this will be your opinion at the end of our tours. I'm used to hearing things like: . . . "Thanks for making my dream come true"; . . . "This is better than I imagined"; . . . "I travelled around the world and I'd never seen a city like that. " I want to make new friends from different countries all over the world and you may be this one.

Let me show you some of the breathless views from one of our hillsides, as the Sugar Loaf or the Corcovado's Mountain, where is located one of the New 7 Wonders of the World - the Christ Statue. Experience the real life of a Carioca, enjoying one of our white sands beaches and watching a sunset at the beginning of Ipanema beach. I'll show where I met Vinicius de Morais, the composer of the Girl from Ipanema song, one of the most famous and recorded music in the world.

Although living in Rio all my life, I have travelled to many countries and I know what tourists want to see and I know where these things are here in Rio. Let me show it to you.

As a Private tour Guide, schedules and activities may be changed and adapted to your needs.

Come with me and live the amazing experience of visiting Rio de Janeiro!

A Recent Review of this guide

This was by far the best way to spend a day in Rio. Leandro is the best! He knew exactly where to go, what time to go and was full of information. He had an answer to every question and it felt like we got a weeks worth of Rio in 1 day. We were very well taken care of and we look forward to coming back soon. Thank you so much Leandro for showing us a great time in Rio!
