Marco was an incredible guide that really helped us get insider information on the Imperial Palace and the city of Petropolis. He drove us from Rio to Petropolis offering information along the way! He was extremely flexible and attentive to what we wanted to do during the tour, letting us set the pace. He also took us to a wonderful home with beautiful extensive gardens for lunch after our touring. He was very COVID conscious (mask, clean car, lots of hand sanitizer, and driving with the windows down when possible). At the end of the tour he even helped us find a place that would offer a Covid test for our way back to the US the next day. He really goes the extra mile to make your tour great!

Marco collected us from our hotel promptly in the morning. Had a fantastic trip to Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf but in between he took us to parts of Rio we would never have seen. A real gentleman and really lovely company. His knowledge of Rio is second to none would highly recommend. Thank you Marco for wonderful day.
