Glad I did my research and ended up booking tour with Marcio of Rio Tours. Marcio was prompt in responding to any inquiries I had on setting up our itinerary. We booked a full day tour to a national park followed by city sights, this was honestly the highlight of our time spent in Rio. He picked us up at... More

We had a limited time in Rio as we were there to catch a cruise ship a couple of days later. Marcio made recommendations that maximized our experience with his amazing city. He was punctual and never stopped trying to expose us to as much as possible, but at our pace. There was driving and right amount of walking with... More

We spent a New Year in Rio and what an experience it was. We couldnt have asked for a better agency than Rio Tours Operator. Our guide Marcio organised the whole tour perfectly so even though Rio was full of travelers we visited majority of the places without annoying crowds. No delays, everything went smoothly. Plus he is a very... More

Marcio picked us up at the airport and since that moment he didn't stopped pouring information about the city, people and their way of life. He is an excellent guide. If only we could spend more time with him.

Whilst not limited for time in Rio I really wanted some beach and pool time whilst still experiencing all the wonderful things Rio has to offer. Marcio Guedes was the perfect guide. Together we worked out the sights I wanted to visit and Marcio executed brilliantly. We never really had to queue and Marcio is incredibly knowledgable on everything Rio.... More

Marcio was very good took myself and a friend to Christ the Redeemer to the Cathedral and Selaron Steps and all around the city. He was very attentive and had a superb and interesting knowledge of the city. On my experience I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend him.

Marcio offered a varied and informative tour of Rio. He picked us up from our hotel and took us to Corcovado where we rode up on the early train to Christ the Redeemer. He has a wealth of knowledge and truly enriched our experience. After that we visited Ruins Park. Marcio also took us to Lapa and Santa Theresa area... More

This was my third trip to Rio and I have booked a tour with Marcio every time. Many reasons including: - Security first. As world travelers we know what matters most. Marcio understood the safe and not safe areas to visit and ensured our security first. - English. Marcio has lived in the United States and speaks flawless English. -... More

As someone who has worked in media for 30 years and travelled around the world I certainly know the value of an excellent driver and fixer. Rarely do you get both, but in the case of Marcio Guedes you most certainly do. I would have no problem whatsoever recommending Marcio for future work.

Having Mario show us around Rio on our first full day made an enormous difference in the depth and quality of our travel experience. We cannot recommend him enough. He is friendly, knowledgeable, interesting, a font of information about all things Brazilian, and a good conversationalist and guide. He's very efficient and managed to fit in everything we had asked... More
