We've booked Tours by Locals 12 times and Michael was by far the best. He's totally fluent in English and we were impressed how up-to-date he was on current affairs for Brazil and elsewhere. He's a very personable considerate young man and a delight to be with. We did the standard Corcovado and Sugar Loaf tours (6 hours) but in addition we visited a Flavela (top to bottom - extra 2 hours). He was able to arrange a special guide who lived in the flavela and she added a very real dimension to our day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind words Robert. We had a wonderful time together. Great favela tour. Resuming: Perfect day for us. Best, Michael.
