Petrina and I enjoyed an excellent, enjoyable and interesting tour. Bruno speaks good English and is informative throughout and was sensitive to our preferences at stops etc. The itinerary he worked out complemented our request to visit particular sights. He timed out stops at the Redeemer and Sugarloaf perfectly and we had great visibility. He organised our tickets and somehow had the knack of getting us in the preferential line!The short lunch stop he chose at a typical Carioca trattoria was excellent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Simon, Thank you for your comments. I'm glad to know that you enjoyed the tour. Warm Regards, Bruno

Bruno is an excellent tour guide. He planned our day tour of Rio so we got to see the main tourist attractions before the weather turned and the crowds arrived. He also showed us some gorgeous city places that only a local would know about like the library and Colombus Coffee shop. Bruno speaks perfect English and took great care of our preferences and requirements. Thank you for a great day out in your beautiful city Bruno.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Leigh, Thank you for your comments. Warm Regards, Bruno

Bruno was an exceptional guide. He was flexible so that if there was any tweaking of our itinerary we requested, he was responsive to our needs and interests. If there was a question he couldn't answer, he would look it up. Bruno provided us with historical and cultural information, making this an interesting as well as a learning experience. Traffic made our time go on longer than planned, but Bruno filled the time well. Our group highly recommends Bruno as a guide.

My sister and I did a girls vacation to Rio, did this full day tour. Bruno is an excellent guide for this beautiful city. His English was exceptional, and he was obviously known/well liked everywhere we went. We saw so much of the Rio in this full day tour like beaches, Sugarloaf, steps, Christ Redeemer as well as safe off the beaten path cultural sights. The driver, Giovanni was fantastic, and saved so much time by always being prompt. Highly recommend this guide in Rio. Will have a fantastic day.

We are a mature couple travelling from UK to Brazil for the first time. From making contact with Bruno our emails were responded to quickly, generally within hours of sending them. Bruno made sure all we wanted to see within our visit were met and more, he went beyond the tour itself. He took us to the local bars for fresh fruit juice, recommended restaurants in his local area of copacabana. He helped us get our metro pass for new year he showed us our way on metro back to our hotel.

We spent 2 days with Bruno. He was EXCELLENT. We were very glad that we chose Bruno because his English was very good, he was determined to meet our needs, and he delivered on everything he promised to do for us. Additionally, we were very happy with our driver. He spoke very little English, but he was an absolute gentleman who performed his job to perfection. We would tour with them again in a heartbeat.

We were satisfied with Bruno as our tour guide for the Rio must-see attractions tour. The day was well planned. Booking and communication process was easy, timely and informative. The car we were in was clean and comfortable and felt safe with the driver. We could tell that Bruno is knowledgeable about the history, geography and attractions of the city so he helped us a lot knowing more about the city. We highly recommend Bruno as a tour guide to anyone who is planning to visit Rio de Janeiro.

Bruno was very accommodating and informative and made our tour of Rio de Janeiro a great experience. A lot was seen in a day including the main highlights of Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf. He pointed out that we could get seniors discount at Sugarloaf. We did not know this and got a welcome saving. We would highly recommended Bruno and his driver Edson.

My family and I (my wife and 2 sons - ages 15 years and 6 years) were visiting Rio de Janeiro and booked a full day tour with Bruno. We had an amazing time. Bruno arrived on time to our hotel as planned and off we went! He was with his driver and a minivan. We went to all the lovely sites (Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf Mountain, different parks) as well as some hidden gems including The Library and a lovely restaurant. We had a great time. Bruno was excellent. I give this tour a solid 5 stars!

We visited Rio for one day and accompanied by local guide name called Bruno. Even before our visit he was in a touch with us through mail and was really responsive most of the time. He picked us up from the airport and managed to show us 3-4 attraction in just 7 hours. Right from the airport he started explaining about the history and famous attraction of Rio, he took us to the nice place and made us tasted the local food of Rio too. He was so kind and happy person. Thank you Bruno for everything.

Knowledgeable and friendly guide with very good English. We had an unexpected very late arrival in Rio and Bruno re-arranged our first day for us and was willing to change the second day if we wanted to suit the weather etc. This was a bespoke tour. He always gave us time to look around. Bruno was very careful to make sure that we stayed safe and gave us advice on what to take or not (eg expensive camera). His drivers were very good and the cars were in very good condition. We recommend Bruno.
