We had a fantastic tour of Rio with Daniel, he was punctual, friendly, he took us to the sights we wanted to see. He also made some good suggestions. He was knowledgeable and considerate of my husband who has a bit of a mobility problem. The highlight for me was Christ the Redeemer. I would highly recommend him as a tour guide. Thank you Daniel for making our trip to Rio memorable

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Susan! All the best for you and your family and let's pray for better times from now on, Dan

Daniel was a wonderful, no, a perfect, tour guide for our group of four. He was knowledgeable about his city and shared this with us in an interesting way. He did his best to be sure we saw the highlights of the city (even though Mother Nature tried to work against us) as well as taking us to an authentic restaurant for us to eat a traditional Brazilian meal. I would, without hesitation, recommend Daniel as a tour guide in Rio!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sheila! Definitely our lunch was magnific! Kind regards, Dan

I had a great (2) day tour with Dan. He did a great job of splitting up the major attractions over the 2 days, and got us to both Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf ahead of the large crowds from the cruise ships. He did a great job of explaining the history of Rio, and showing off its spectacular nature and views. He also showed me several places that most tourists wouldn't typically stumble across. I'd highly recommend booking a tour with Dan - you'll be glad you did!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Stewart! Hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip in Rio, we definitely covered a lot, now you are a local : ) All the best, Dan

Daniel gave us the best, most inclusive and informative tour we had on our cruise. He had everything prepared in advance and we experienced the attractions without the burden of waiting in lines. He was totally professional, and made us feel special as he took us around Rio and explained the neighborhoods and history. It was truly a five star experience and I recommend him highly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michael! The 4 of you were amazing and together we made a good team, it was a pleasure to show y wonderful city for you and your friends. All the best, Dan

Daniel picked us up from the airport in Rio and took us immediately by car to show us his city-beaches, neighborhoods, buildings of interest, history of the place, Sugar Loaf, the tiled steps and much more than we thought we could see in a short amount of time. He delivered us to to cruise port to check in our luggage right on time. He is a wonderful guide- informative, personable, very friendly and he has quite a sense of humor! Highly recommend him.

What a wonderful tour this was. I had the chance to disover the hidden gems of Rio through the eyes of a local. Furthermore I learned more about Rio de Janeiro and Brazil than I could have found by reading 10 tourist guide books. It was a once in a lifetime experience and I truly enjoyed the tour. We did the typical tourist stops as well, but other than that the tour was tailored to my liking. His knowledge and his humor really made my day. Thanks a million!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marion, I'm so thankful for your review and very happy that you discovered Rio as a local! It was as a pleasure to show part of my city for you and in the same time find out that you found interests sights by yourself during the rest of your trip, Have a great trip in Colombia and come back soon!!!!

Daniel was very personable and informative. His English is excellent. The only negative is he was late due to car troubles and his phone wasn't working and we had to call the 'help line' to make sure he was coming. It turned out he was about 30 minutes late. The day was rainy and cold, untypical for Brazil in early August, but otherwise the trip from Rio to Petropolis was very good.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Michael! I'm so glad to hear from you, Hope you had a great tour at Iguaçu Falls, definitely Rio has another face when it's raining I really enjoyed spending the day with you all, Once again I'm sorry for the delay and thank you for the review. Dan

Daniel provided my party of four people with a first rate tour of Rio. He is personable an easy to talk with. Rio is a busy place and we felt comfortable with his knowledge of the city and getting us to our destinations safely. I would highly recommend Daniel to any friend or interested traveler I meet interested in traveling there. Thanks Daniel for a wonderful experience.

Daniel did very well as our guide. He's punctual and very easy to get along with. We were able to go the places we intended to visit and really had a great time. We actually just didn't go with him once, but we actually had a repeat tour with him so one of our friends can catch up. I guess that speaks volume on how good he was as a guide. PS. Sorry about "getting lost" at the train in the Christ Statue. I know you had a mini-heart attack looking for us... we swear that was unintentional. :)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hahahhah It's ok Erwin! It was a pleasure to be with you! It was so good that we repeat the same tour twice and you finally could cross the bridge!! All the best for the 3 of you, Hugs Dan

Daniel wasn't too talkative at first but once the day got underway he was full of beans telling us interesting facts about his beautiful city and country. We couldn't get up the mountain to Christ the Redeemer due to mudslides and inclement weather but he took us to the National Park beside Christo, we had great views of the city. Daniel is passionate about the lack of international visitors to this beautiful part of the world, so come on down!! He's a very safe driver and fun to be with. Lunch was great

Daniel was an excellent guide. He speaks excellent English and drove us all over Rio-we feel like locals now. Our photographers had wonderful opportunities to take great pictures. He chose a great spot for lunch- amazing meat and good beer. We had a really wonderful day in Rio and it was exactly what we asked for thanks to Daniel. I would recommend Daniel to any friend or family who wanted a tour in Rio.

Daniel Pedrosa took us, in his comfortable car, for a tour of Rio missing out the places we had already been to. Daniel is a Rio native and speaks perfect English so communication was easy. We saw Rio from several different directions but if there was somewhere we specifically wanted to go he was willing to go there. He is very kknowledgable about Rio and gave us all the information we required. A very pleasant and interesting trip and my wife and I highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the review partner!! I really enjoyed the day yesterday and hope I can't do the same for your daughter, Have a safe end of trip, Warm regards, Dan
