We had booked Madson for a tour of Rio during the World Cup months in advance. Right from the first enquiry he was very clear and professional about everything. Timings, sights etc were all made clear. Making a booking was also straightforward. On the day of the tour Madson arrived at the exact time he had promised (he was waiting for us in fact!) and off we went. A warm, enthusiastic, friendly guy, we felt comfortable with Madson right away. He constantly gives you information about Rio and its surroundings as you drive from area to area so not a minute of the tour goes to waste. He took us to a favela which he knew would be safe for us. He seems to be well known there which made it a lot for welcoming for us. Our tour itinerary changed a little as we wanted to stay at the favela a little longer than originally planned - Madson was absolutely fine with this and was quite happy for us to take our time and choose exactly wherewe wanted to spend our time.
His overall knowledge of Rio is excellent. He'll give you the lowdown on where to eat, drink, shop, relax and how to stay safe.
If you want to be shown around Rio then Madson is without doubt the number 1 guy for a fun, informative and safe tour of the beautiful city.
