Gus was an amazing guide! Highly recommend!!! Communication was awesome and he made us feel like we were always top priority! He knows all the great restaurants and got us reservations at the best places and every restaurant treated us like gold! He was also super efficient with his time and got us around the whole city of Rio! MY TRIP WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN THE SAME without Gus! It was like we had a personal concierge!

Gus was a great knowledgeable tour guide! He helped us skip the line at both sugarloaf and Christ redeemer. It was very seamless and stress free for us. He also helped us get covid tests for our trip back and gave great suggestions for things to do on our other days in Rio. The car was very comfortable with AC as well. Highly recommend.

This was a fantastic experience in 28 hrs. The tour guide really provided a top notch experience down to the minute. With a nice balance of the major city - beach highlights while considering safety.
Rio offered conflicting views for me similar to the Bronx and LA plus more.
Tour guide offered best guidance on hotel selection for best views while taking in the local culture.
Liked the view of Copacobana and the Christ Redeemer statue from the hotel terrace
Tour considers every detail and made one feel like a home away from home. Also arranged the COVID test at the hotel. You will not be disappointed by the professionalism, persolanism, responsiveness, attentiveness and flexibily to provide the best Rio has to offer - from door to door.
Felt very fortunate to experience a glimpse of Rio in a short perod.

Highly recommend the tour to all.

Gus (tour operator) made this a trip of a life time. Thank you

During a 4 weeks trip across South America i spent 4 days in Rio together with 3 friends and i had the chance of having Augusto as our private guide.
He is a great guide speaking a perfect english and knowledgeable in local history and culture. We had a customized 3 days private tour visiting the main landmarks like The Statue of Christ, Sugar Loaf, museums, cathedrals, etc and some hidden gems of Rio like favelas, colored neighbours, private beaches and even the city jungle/forest.
I totally recommend Augusto for a wonderful Rio de Janeiro experience.

Hi we booked Gus to tour Rio privately for 2/3 days , we found his English very good , very professional, friendly and knew how to access facilities with preference everywhere we went.
He was a pleasure to be with and when we arrived at tourist destinations he always asked if we wished to explore them alone which sometimes was a good option ! A very knowledgeable courteous guide !
Strongly recommend

Gus met me at the airport which was very convenient.
In just 8 hours we have visited over 8 different sightseens in Rio. He is a master of logistics.
Gus has recommended me a good restaurant with local food, it was a really nice experience.
I had time to walk along the streets, talk to locals even and make beautiful photos.
I felt like I lived there for a week in just a day.
This guy is professional and the trip is worth the money!
