Jerome ReismanUnited States
We enjoyed touring with Daniel on two consecutive days. He knows Rio inside and out, and describes the history and present day events without hesitation and succinctly. in two days we saw what we wanted to see and then some. We saw all of downtown and the waterfront. The government buildings and monuments, the beautiful Jesuit church and school, Jewish Museum in Rio, the Christ, the beautiful central park, Sugarloaf, ride the cable car, and tour the city. Take a Tailored Tour, describe your likes-dislikes
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jerome, I also learned a lot with the two of you!!! My best wishes for you! #gopuertorico #gousa

We booked Daniel for the airport transfer as well the night before this full day tour. Although the cost is about 2x a cab ride, having an English speaking guide to greet you and explain what you are seeing on the ride into a new town was worth the difference. This tour covered all the key places in Rio. Daniel is very personable and is a a friend the first minute we met him. The buffet he took us to for lunch was phenomenal with great Brazillian barbecue as well as sushi. We highly recommend Daniel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks Sammy! I hope the three of you enjoyed the rest of the trip!
Priscilla ScalleyUnited States
Daniel is the best-very knowledgeable and pleasant. I liked the fact that he is a take charge person and knows how to plan a day to maximize the tourist experience. His excellent English is also a plus.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you priscilla, hope the 6 of you had a good trip back home, all the best for you. Kind regards, Daniel

Larry DonnithorneUnited States
Daniel was a very satisfactory guide for a day's tour of Rio. He met us on time and took us safely to many interesting places. His own story and his insights into the culture were quite interesting to learn during the day. We felt that he could have told us more about some of the places we visited, but, on the other hand, he did not tire us with endless chatter as some guides do. Daniel was very thoughtful about offering options during the day and seeing us to our final destination. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Larry, I wish I could go back on time to let you know more about those places, in case you ever comeback I'll give you a complimentary tour! Regards, Daniel
Scott WeinerUnited States
EXCELLENT tour guide. Terrific personality. Too bad we couldn't take Daniel with us on the rest of our trip. Very knowledgeable and in-step with your agenda while offering suggestions to see sites that perhaps you may have overlooked. Daniel! looking forward to seeing you in NY. Thanks for making a rainy day spectacular.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Deborah! I've been working hard to be there this christmas!
James H.Lakeport, CA., United States
Daniel was a Fabulous tour director. We all were very happy with our tour.
Thomas MileyUnited Kingdom
During our 2 days with Daniel we covered all the highlights that I had identified - only a few of what is on offer in Rio but we had a limited amount of time. Daniel recommended Porcao for an evening meal and I had already found mention of this restaurant on the Internet as one of the better places to eat.. It came up to expectation! No hesitation in recommending Daniel as a guide, he kept everything at just the right level and he had a cracking sense of humour.
Daniel was excellent from the moment he collected us from the airport. His knowledge just flowed in an easy conversation not like fact after fact. He was so helpful taking lots of photos of the three of us at the the perfect spot.We went shopping together and his inside knowledge was so helpful. We felt so safe the whole time even in the favellas. I don't think you could get a better guide, in fact Daniel was like family, he even waited at the airport until we checked in in case we had a problem. Best ever.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I miss the 3 of you already! I hope everything went OK in Buenos Aires,thanks a lot again and comeback soon!!
Aleksandar CirilovicAuckland, 0620, New Zealand
Our first trip to Rio (and South America) that Daniel made truly memorable. With him we got not just a professional and knowledgeable guide but a host who made us feel as if we were visiting a friend or relative who is going out of his way to showcase the city he is living in. Being a family with two young boys, our requirements weren't always easy to accommodate and the weather wasn't great either but with Daniel's help we made the most out of our stay and can't wait to come back...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I promise you won't have to hug a baby's sit anymore! Just love to spend the time with you guys! VanesSANDRA,Luka,Ruben and you will always be a V.I.P when you comeback! take care Daniel
