My partner and I were extremely happy with our tour of the City of Rio on February 17, 2019. Sharing our interests with Marco, Marco was able to give us a very interesting and fascinating tour of the city, including the architecture, insight into the culture, and the history of the people of this fascinating city. He had the insight and timing to pull us away from other tours so we saw more without waiting in lines. We managed Christ the Redeemer before a storm moved in. We loved Marco!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review and feedback. It was my pleasure getting to know you and showing you my city. Indeed you have a friend in Rio. Forte abraço e obrigado. MB

Marco was an excellent guide and would highly recommend him to anyone to tour Rio and the surrounding area. We had a great day trip to Petropolis. I can't say enough for ToursByLocals as Marco was a last minute substitute as our original guide was hospitalized. They worked magic in getting us a new guide in less than 24 hours and we couldn't have been more pleased with Marco. We had some walking concerns and he also worked his magic in getting us to the head of all the lines and finding places to sit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review and feedback. I was also a pleasure having the opportunity to meet you and your party. Looking forward to seeing you all again in the future. Best regards, Marco.

My husband and I are architects and Marco prepared a brilliant bespoke tour for us, showing us an eclectic and enchanting mix of buildings, parks and neighborhoods, with references to the history of Rio and famous architects and designers. It was very informative - Marco was able to answer all our questions and give us real insight into local life - and also great fun. In addition, we were in touch before the tour and he offered some excellent tips for restaurants and places to see. Great guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Aida. I am very happy you enjoyed the tour I prepared to you. I do hope we may meet again in the future. Taking the opportunity to wish you a Joyous Christmas and a very happy new year, Boas Festas, MB.

Marco is a well-spoken, charismatic and extremely professional guide who makes the history, culture, and particularities of Brazilian culture come alive. He's very attentive to detail and has the sixth sense of an experienced concierge to understand and attend to his guests' interests. Not only did he provide local context, he was able to suggest books, films, restaurants along each step of our tour and felt my experience was greatly enriched - uniquely so - by having had him as my guide.Highly recommend
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Fico feliz de saber que tenha gostado do tour. Foi também um prazer conhecê-lo e juntos visitarmos a Cidade Imperial. Desejo a você boa continuação e sucesso nas suas reuniões de trabalho. Abraços. Marco B..
