This tour was a fantastic way to be introduced to Manaus. Rodolpho was on time, his car was clean and comfortable, and he had a cooler with bottled water in the car, which is great on a typical hot day! His English was excellent, and he was able to tell us a lot of history and other information about all the places we visited. I would highly recommend Rodolpho and this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much dear Jennifer.

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."

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. We knew that this would be a long tour and whilst we did enjoy the experience we felt that his was a bit too long a drive for a day trip. No complaints but do be prepared for the 2 hour drive there and back. The waterfalls are interesting but not spectacular. One reason that we decided to take the tour was to see some of the "jungle" landscape - which we certainly did.

We liked Rodolpho immensely - this trip was wonderful. While we worried that it might be a lot of time in the car, it was fascinating to be driving in the rainforest, and he stopped when there were interesting things to see. We were surprised when he said we could wear flip flops, but it was true that the paths were simple wooden boards that were easy to walk on, despite being in the rainforest. The waterfalls were glorious! Especially since it was rainy season. Great trip, great guide.

Throughout the four tours we took with Rodolpho, it was generally a great time! He knew a lot about the city, was willing to always stop to take pictures, and was always pointing out the monkeys.The only issue was the scheduling of our tour was from 2-6 but the two places we were going to see closed at 4 and 5, so we missed out on the zoo, as there was a lot of driving. So I'd recommend this tour to start a little earlier. Other than this logistical issues, Rodolpho is very knowledgeable!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I will think about that and change the starting times for this option, thanks a lot

Rodolpho and his boat driver were superb! They provided us with a private tour of not just the meeting of the waters but also of other attractions, including fishing for piranhas and catching and releasing two caimans. For nearly the same cost as the large cruise ship excursions, we were able to get the benefit of Rodolfo's fifteen years of experience in a personalized and private setting. We were truly the envy of several of our fellow passengers who were unable to see and do as much as we did.

The Guide was very very good, he spoke an excellent English, he was 10 Minutes before our start time at the pier to pick us up. He was very friendly and told us a lot about the city, the dolphins and the Indians. He also got 5 stars from us.

Rodolpho delivered everything promised AND MORE. We especially loved our encounter with the pararuco (sp)....great fun wrestling the great beast fish out of his lunch. :) Also great tour of current recovery/restoration of housing and the resulting park. Meeting-of-the-Waters and the Teatro Amazonas was our (of course) main objective...but we also went to local market and new 'football' stadium and other Manaus sites. Rodolpho's language was understandable and extensive. EXCELLENT TOUR hiphiphooray

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan. Thank you very much for your comment, I wish you all the best for 2015 and just to let you know was an unforgettable moment to me being with you and your friends. Rodolpho

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

Very interesting well organized tour. Rodolpho is very likable and has extensive knowledge of Manaus, the Amazon, and social and cultural changes. He adjusted the time schedule based on our interests. When he saw we were thrilled to find Manaus Symphony rehearsing in the Opera House when we toured, he encouraged us to sit and enjoy. Very much committed to his clients having the experience most meaningful to them. Timed to hit sites at best viewing time. English is very good. Delightful day.

We had an absolutely wonderful day in Manaus with Rodolpho. We saw and did things that no one else on our ship saw or did, including visiting a fish farm where they raised pirarucu, and a boat tour of floating villages. Of course, he also was wonderful in explaining the more standard sights of Manaus, such as the Opera House. Our day was great, and we would recommend Rodolpho without hesitation.

Our family really enjoyed the time we spent in the Amazon with Rodolpho. He was on-time, considerate and very knowledgeable about the Amazon. We saw so many amazing sights. We really felt lucky to have our tour as a family. We felt that because there were only four of us, we had some places all to ourselves. Rodolpho was able to time everything so that we missed the big tour groups, which gave us more time to enjoy the destinations. He was a fantastic guide and made our "dream" day in the Amazon complete!

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.

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.

We had a 7AM flight on a Sunday morning from a city that is 1000 miles up the Amazon. I went on line looking for transportation in the city of Manaus. Since I had used ToursbyLocals before with very good results, I went there again, looking and hooked up with Rodolpho. We agreed that he would pick us up a 5 AM at the ship. You can imagine our concern, waiting at 5 AM, hoping our ride would be there. When we saw Rodolpho driving down the roadway to the ship, a great weight was lifted. Thank you Rodolpho!

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.

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.
