Great tour of all the city highlights with Michael... he has a vast and extensive knowledge because this has been his profession for more than a decade. He also has excellent english from spending many years in American growing up and was very flexible in coordinating what we did and did not want to see. We really enjoyed him... and he made a super restaurant recommendation which was one our best dinners in the city! Thank You Michael.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mark. It was a great tour with a wonderful weather. The restaurant is my favorite. I am gald everyone had a good time. Cheers!!!

Michael & his brother Daniel escorted us around Rio for 2 days & an evening. The first day was mostly walking in the city & we were able to learn of the history & culture of this fabulous city. The second day was centred around the scenic highlights & beaches again going off the tourist track to experience the local flavour & culture. Daniel escorted us to a local dance show one evening where we saw cultural dances from many regions of Brazil. Excellent tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lorna. We enjoyed every minute together showing around Rio. We wish you guys the best!!!

Michael was an excellent tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and amiable. He provided many excellent descriptions and anecdotes. He effectively managed the tour and time to our benefit. We were ahead of the crowds to see the Christ monument and we had additional time to tour the beaches. Michael experienced a temporary problem with his vehicle, but quickly and readily made alternative plans to meet our needs, at no cost to us. I would strongly recommend Michael as a tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Terris, Carl, Urszula and Linda for the wonderful time together. We even got to see a Carnaval street parade. All my best wishes!!!

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.

Loved the tour! Michael was so easy to talk with, we instantly felt comfortable with him. We are probably one of the few tourists who did not want to do Sugarloaf and we left it up to Michael to setup the touring day based on our interests and he did a fantastic job. Loved that he had a sense of humor too! We would recommend him in a heartbeat.

Michael was an excellent guide. We did a full 8hr day tour of the major sites in Rio: Sugar Loaf, Corcovado, Selaron steps, Lapa, Ruins at St. Teresa, and neighborhoods such as Urca, Ipanema and Leblon. Everything was just what we hoped - and Michael timed everything well around the bad weather. My father is a senior and can't climb many steps, but Michael went out of his way to make us all feel comfortable and safe. The pacing was great for a long day. Never felt rushed or tired. Highly recommended!

We would go back to Rio just to extend this tour. Michael was informative with historical details and attentive to our needs. A short list of our custom tour included touring the St Terese District, stopping for incredible coffee, lunch in a local restaurant, historical discussions, monastery and cathedral visits... Highly recommended

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...

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.

First to Christ Redeemer before the tour buses arrived. Michael took some great photos and on to Sugarloaf Mountain. Michael was very concerned about my fear of heights and helped during our trip to the top. The full 8 hour day tour was brilliant, so much we booked a tour the next day, we were not disappointed, we toured the favelas, brilliant

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.

I suggested what I wanted to see and Michael made sure I saw everything. I prefer a faster pace when visiting new cities the first time and then spend more time at the sites I really like. Michael was easy to talk to and knew the city as well as anyone can. You can tell he really has pride in Rio and is happy to share his beautiful city.

Michael is the best tour guide we ever experienced. He showed perfect knowledge and enthusiasm during our tour with him. He showed us places that we know they are not tourist attractions, and it was very interesting. He helped us also with our money situation since we did not have local currencies and he became our friend. We definitely want to recommend that if you really want to see Rio you must hire him as your tour guide.
