marcos si è dimostrato una guida eccellente e una persona simpaticissima, ha organizzato un tour personalizzato alle mie richieste ed anche variandolo sul momento per adattarlo al tempo non bello di rio nel giorno della mia visita trovando il momento migliore per visitare la statua del Cristo ed il Pan di Zucchero. Consiglio a tutti di scegliere Marcos e i suoi tour per visitare la cidade maravilhosa. lorenzo

We loved spending three exciting days with Marcos showing us everything Rio has to offer. He is a fantastic, passionate guide and really made our time with him fun. We also spent an evening with him trying a few local bars and the local delicacies which was a great experience. Thanks again Marcos, we will never forget Rio ;)

Marcos' customized tour was perfect. He showed parts of Rio we had never seen before. He adjusted for our need for a larger vehicle which was very welcome. He customized again to get us to the airport at the end of the tour.

Marcos was clear, concise and pleasant. He adjusted the tour to best fit the weather so we could see christ the redeemer. Also I had a bad hip so was thoughtful in dropping me close to entries etc. He didn't bore us with a ridiculous amount of details which some tour guides do. I would highly recommend him.

Great tour. Marcos was a good driver too. I felt safe. He knew his job well and had very good english and was easy to understand. Was flexible and looked after me well as I had had a hip operation. His car was clean and comfortable. We highly recommend Marcos.

As a native Cariocan, Marco has an in-depth knowledge of his home city. It was a pleasure to be guided by a very professional person with an intimate knowledge of not only the "famous tourist sites" but some of the unique history and culture that makes Rio, well Rio. An additional benefit provided by Marco is his ability to adapt instantly to the situation and provide a quick change to the plan. Traffic jam? No problem, Marco has a plan B that often takes you to an undiscovered niche of this great city.

We had already been in Rio for a few days, so we wanted something different. Marcos was able to come up with a truly unique experience for us. He was very prompt, knowledgeable,accommodating, connected, and was just plain fun to be around. We saw Rio from a whole new angle and experienced many 'firsts'. Would not hesitate to recommend him.

For this day Marcos had spotted our interest in architecture so we visited the impressive Oscar Niemeyer trail. Then amazing locations and views, of 'secret' Rio, were revealed and we visited our old flat. His winning personality and contacts give Marcos privileged access to a wide variety of places. He was more an engaging companion than simply an excellent guide. His aim is always to give his clients the best, most interesting and safest tours. We could not have wished for a more perfect tour or guide.

Marcos had done a very thoughtful and excellent job in preparing this day. He was attuned to our interests and managed to work in allied visits with great success. He easily mixed elements of his other tours including history, food, forests, favelas and the wetlands to enhance our list. He thoroughly understood our programme which included locations we had been familiar with when we had lived in Rio forty years earlier. Really excellent all round again. No hesitation in thoroughly recommending him. Super!

Marcos was an excellent guide. He made sure we did not have to queue for long and took account of my disability. He found us interesting places to visit including a trip to the tropical park and St Bento church which were not seen by others on our cruise. The lunch was amazing. We do not hesitate to recommend Marcos.
