Words can not describe how great a guide Rudolpho is. He is absolutely amazing! We did a Manaus city tour and he was outstanding. He knew everything about Manaus, Brazil, and the rivers. We are very curious people and we asked a lot of questions and he easily answered all of them. He is an amazing source of information. He speaks fluent English and is very easy to understand. He is also extremely nice and is a very friendly and happy person. If you are looking for tours in Manaus you need to contact him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Amy, I am really glad with your words but I just did my job which is to show the best of the Amazon, thank you for these kind words. Best Wishes Rodolpho

Very disappointing experiece, Rodolpho was very unfriendly. There was no rapport at all. He didn't even bother to shake hands with my friend. The tone was set at the start when he announced that the tour would end 90 minutes early. Much to his reluctance, we asked to walk around the main square. He did not offer to accompany us and explain the monuments. Once back at the hotel I checked the itinery. One item ( Rio Negro Palace was only seen from the car and Jefferson Park and Liberdade not at all
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Thank you for your review, I am sorry if I came off as unfriendly during the tour as this is not my intention and please excuse any offense I may have caused by not shaking your friends hand. I will be more aware of this in the future. Thank you for the feedback."
Max KaufmannCorseaux, VD, Switzerland
The visit of Manaus with Rodolpho was a real pleasure. He is a dynamic and well informed guide, capable to include also last minute wishes of his clients. He was also able to show us the points from where we could take the nicest pictures. His punctuality is worth a special mention.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Was a pleasure be with you dear Max.

Our guide, Rodolpho, met us at the ship's gangway to take us on the tour. He was a great guide and his command of English was excellent. The sights in Manaus were somewhat limited but we did enjoy the tour of the wholesale markets and the opera house.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Humprey Yes, thanks a lot, Like I told you, the cathedral was not included because was just re opened. But thanks for the suggestion one more time. Best Regards Rodolpho

Betsy AhlUnited States
Rodolpho is an excellent guide. His English is exceptional--idiomatic and almost accent-free. He knows a lot about Manaus and Brazil and has a good sense of how much talking is appropriate from a guide. We enjoyed our morning with him and recommend him highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Betsy I really want to thank you for your review, I try my best to make your tour memorable. Rodolpho

John C.United States
We both enjoyed our private tour of Manaus. Rodolfo is a well-informed guide; his English is excellent. He was able to accommodate our request for a modified start time (due our late arrival the previous night). He also made a couple of extra picture stops to accommodate our interests, and had good practical advice for our stay in Manaus. We particularly enjoyed seeing the historic squares, the market and waterfront, and of course the spectacular opera house
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you again Dear John

Martyn NorthfieldUnited Kingdom
Rodolpho is an excellent tour guide with a depth of knowledge that left no questions unanswered. His english language is perfect. Unfortunately we found that this tour overlaps with the Manaus Historical City Tour content leading tto unnecessary duplication of content.Not a fault of the tour guides but requires investigation by Tours by Locals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot dear Martyn, I will let them know about that Best Regards Rodolpho
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments, Mr. Northfield. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your time with Rodolpho. The nature of ToursByLocals means travelers choose a guide to deliver a tour, then communicate with that guide to design a customized tour itinerary. Many of the suggested itineraries on the site will overlap, because different guides will offer similar tours highlighting popular attractions. In the future, we suggest communicating with your guides in advance of your tour to ensure no duplication
Ken HurleyUnited States
Friendly welcome. Knowledgeable. Made the Opera House come alive for us. Took us to the Indian museum. And went out of his way for us to see the meeting of the waters from dry land.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ken, Thanks a lot for your comment, was a great pleasure show you Manaus. Rodolpho
Ricky D'ArcyUnited Kingdom

Karen Burgess-KohnUnited States
Excellent guide who helped make our brief stay in Manaus so much better. We did every thing we pre-planned with him and even more for one day. We also hired him to arrange for a plane ride over Amazonia on a different day and when asked if he could spend more time guiding us, he said that he could. Rodolpho also arranged for us, two women, to shop at local markets for souvenirs and was very patient waiting for us as we browsed plus he advised us on good prices. I highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karen, I really want to thank you for you to come here and spend those wonderful days with me i Hope to see you again Next time with your family and also Candy's family. Best wishes Rodolpho
Joe MartinezUnited States
Rodolpho was a treat as his warm professionalism and friendly manner made our full day tour of Manaus all that we were hoping for. He arrived on time in his air conditioned car, which was very much appreciated and explained what we were going to see and said that we could change if there was something else we wanted to see. He took us to the restaurant of OUR choice that I had chosen online before our arrival. When he left us to go get the car, it was already cooled down! Do NOT hesitate booking with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joe, Thank you very much your great comment, I hope to see you again next time. Rodolpho
Macuqui Robau-GarciaUnited States
Rodolfo is knowledgeable and very professional. He picked me up right on time at the pier and even had cold bottles of water in his trunk for us. He took me exactly to the places outlined in the tour plus a zoo because I like animals and still managed to get me back to the ship on time. I would recommend Rodolfo over the ship shore excursions. It is a better value and he doesn't waste time trying to sell you things as they do on the ship tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Dear Macuqui Thanks a lot for your comments I really appreciate it Happy new Year Rodolpho
Mary SwintUnited States
Rodolpho was so accomodating! He took the time to hear what we would prefer to do and that is exactly what we did. In addition he was so professional, warm and friendly.

My husband and I had a wonderful day with Rodolpho as our guide in Manaus Brazil.. HIs knowledge of the city and surrounding environs was exceptional. He also tailored the tour of the city to our interests. We certainly would rate Rodolpho a 10 out of 10. Hire him folks. He is great and his command of English exceptional. Hannah and David
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot my dear Please give regards to Mr David Bye Rodolpho
Norman RichUnited States
Due to Rodolpho showing up at 910 Am instead of 8AM our touring was cut short to two and a half hours which cut short visits. Heis very personable and full of knowledge. Did say he would talk to Jerry to give us creditf instead of the charge we prepaid. While I think credit to our credit card is due it should not be for the entire amount.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We have spoken to Rodolpho about this problem and issued an appropriate refund to Mr. Rich.
