There can be no better guide in Rio
Alex looked after my wife and I for three days in Rio, picking us up from the airport, showing us the sights during the next three, and dropping us back at the airport check-in on our onward journey. A good driver, always with great knowledge and chat, courteous, charming, and knows everybody everywhere so you get ahead of the other tourists and make the best use of your time.

I am partially disabled and have a 40kg electric buggy , which he would load into and out of the car goodness knows how many times a day. When I had a problem with the buggy, Alex tracked down a man who could help. Alex goes way beyond tour guides we have used before. He is simply the best.

Great trip with a great guide !
We had only 2 days in Rio. Our arrival into Rio was delayed. Alex was flexible and picked us up and adjusted the schedule to suit our schedule. Not only did he make us get settled down quickly but he was a great guide ! Alex was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and very efficient. We would get him as guide again if we visit Rio again.

We had a great day seeing the sights of Rio with Alex.

He looked after us so well and was so knowledgeable about Rio and the many places we visited, using the time to maximum advantage so we saw as much as possible.

I would fully recommend using Alex to anyone visiting Rio.
