Michael RayGlenville, NC, United States
Julio did a great job, although we made it very hard for him since we had already been to Rio several times and tasked him with showing us things we had not seen before. Thanks, Julio!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mike It was a great pleasure introduce to you and your wife different other sights of Rio. I am glad that you enjoyed the tour despite of bad wheather and traffic jam. Thanks for your feedback! Best regards, Julio
Randall HughesUnited States
Julio C. who accompanied us on a tour of Rio s far and away the best guide we have had in Brazil during a 12 day trip. His English is great and he gave us the best tour we have had in Brazil for a reasonable price.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Randall I am really glad that you enjoyed the tour! Thanks a lot for the compliment! See you next time in Rio!! Kind regards Julio
Frank P.United States
My half-day tour of central Rio using public transit was a great supplement to the organized tour I was on. I was leaving that night, so I only had a short time to tour. I got to see sights close up and from a perspective different from what you see on a typical "tour bus" drive by. I specifically wanted to use public transit to experience a bit of what it is like to live in Rio. Julio's tour completely satisfied my expectations. He is personable and well-informed. I highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Frank How are you? Appreciate your feedback! Despite of that warm day in Rio we could explore the city center. We made it! See you next time in Rio Best regards, Julio
Martha J AlexanderUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Martha for your message. I am really glad that you enjoyed the tour. Best regards, Julio
Marjorie WheelerUnited States
We were able to book Julio for two days and really enjoyed out time together. On the second day we had a private van to take our luggage from the cruise terminal to the airport. During the day we got to see more of the sights of Rio and stop along the way at places not visited by other tours. Everything was well planned and thought out. No waiting in long lines. Wonderful stop for lunch at a little bistro for authentic cuisine! Highly recommend - would book with him again it I ever get back to Rio.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Marjorie again for your feedback!! I wish you had a great year!! Warm regards!!! Julio
Marjorie WheelerUnited States
Julio was a fantastic guide. He picked the 4 of us up at the cruise terminal and treated us to a wonderful tour of his city. No waiting in long lines, easy pace with a very friendly guide. Felt like we were visiting with a long lost relative! Would do it all over again.

What a wonderful tour of Rio we all enjoyed, thanks to Julio who is such a good driver. He was right on time, gave us so much information, fit so much in to our allotted time and took us to fabulous view points. This was much more than we had anticipated. Thank you so much, Julio. Chris
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Christine Thanks for your feedback! I was my pleasure be your guide! I am glad that everything worked out that day with the luggages. Thanks a lot and Merry Christmas! Kind regards, Julio
Four hour hiking tour of Tijuca Park. This was not a true hike - It was a 20-30 moderate walk up Pedra Bonita. Outstanding views of Rio de Janeiro. Also visited Vista Chinesa. Julio spoke English very well. Communicated by email easily. Prompt hotel pickup. Clean car. Felt very safe. Provided some historical and geographical narrative, but not naturally and freely conversational. Did allow some free time for privacy and for photographs. Would definitely hire him again for a personalized private tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi John I am very happy that you and your wife enjoyed the tour. Thanks for your feedback. Whenever you comeback to Rio It will be my pleasure to guide you again. Best regards, Julio

Clive R.United Kingdom
First time we have arranged anything like this. However, Julio arrived at our hotel on time @ 7.30am and took us around the major sites of Rio as we only had one full day to do this. Using his vehicle meant that we were able to visit/access places which larger vehicles/coaches etc. could not go. His knowledge, English and personality were all very good. Thoroughly recommend him for anyone looking for a tour of Rio.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Clive I am glad that you enjoyed the tour. Thanks for your feedback! See you in Rio next time! Best regards, Julio
Pamela Hanover LindbladUnited States
Great guide and had a wonderful tour of Rio. We took this tour on the 29th of October 2017 and the next day continuing to tour Rio. We looked at this wonderful city through the eyes of someone who really know it. Can not speak highly enough about the quality and sense of humor that Julio had for both days we toured with him. Pamela and Donald Lindblad, Santa Barbara, California
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Pamela and Donald! How are you? I am happy that both of you enjoyed the tour. Iam flattered with your compliments. We had a lot of fun together! Thanks you! Kind regards, Julio
Pamela Hanover LindbladUnited States
We changed the tour at the last minute because everything was closed and we then got to spend another day in Rio and went to the Aquarium and it was wonderful. We also saw all the different section of Rio and tour around Rio . We were suppose to go Petropolis the first day we were in Rio but changed it to a Monday. Wonderful guide and we really got acquainted with Rio. So different when you have a wonderful guide. Pamela and Donald Lindblad Santa Barbara, California
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Pamela and Donald Thanks for trust on me all the time. I set a plan B because of a setback in petropolis and at the end everthing was amazing! King regards Julio

Ute LehmannUnited States
Julio picked me up at my hotel and we took the subway to the newly opened tram that goes from Centro to Santa Teresa. There we took a leisurely walk through the scenic neighborhood, took photos, explored historic buildings and local markets. Back in Centro, we explored Cinelandia, more historic buildings and the port area, and had a typical Brazilian lunch. I highly recommend Julio's tour. It was the perfect pace and mix of historic facts and local flavor.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ute I am very glad that you enjoyed the tour.It was a big pleasure for me having you as a customer. Hope to see you next time in Rio. Best regards, Julio
