Many people have raved about Marcello and everything they say is true. He is professional and efficient, but friendly and personable. He took us to everywhere we knew we wanted to go and many places we wanted to go but didn't know we did. He gave us lots of great information about every place we visited and went out of his way to make sure we were 100 satisfied. The typical Brazilian Kilo restaurant he took us to was a nice and tasty break. We saw easily five times as much as we could have seen on our own and in great comfort because of his wonderful car. If you're looking for the best way to see the must-see sights in Rio, this is definitely the way to do it. And if you get Marcello, then you are in for a treat.
We had a brilliant day with Marcelo and can confirm that the 5 star reviews are totally correct! We got up to Corcovado on the first train and enjoyed a crush free visit. The viewpoints in the forest were great. The 'kilo' lunch was super too, what a great concept. The downtown tour was good and our souvenir picture tile from the escaderia selaron is fun. Sunset on Sugar Loaf finished the memorable day. Marcelo is a really good guy and we are so pleased to have spent an informative day with him.
If you need a guide in Rio de Janeiro.. Marcelo is the guy to get! Not only was his English perfect, he e-mailed us several times after we booked our tour prior to picking us up directly at our hotel in Ipanema. He was completely flexible with our tour and made sure that we got to see all of the key sites. He pre-purchased our tickets for the train to the Redeemer statue as well as the cable car to Sugar Loaf so we would not have to wait in line which makes a big difference as it can get very busy and if it is hot-standing in line can be grueling. He also provided water and snacks in his SUV which is air conditioned and comfortable. I cannot say enough about this guide he has great sense of humor and easy to talk too, he made the whole visit worthwhile I would recommend him any day and will make use of his services on our next visit to Brazil.
This was by far the best tour I have ever taken. Marcelo was spectacular! I have already passed his name on to other people that are interested in going to Rio. His english was perfect, driving was great, and the tour was just perfect. He picked us up at the airport, took us all over the city, and dropped us off at the hotel. I could not have asked for a more professional, kind, knowledgeable guide. I chose him based on reviews that I read and I was not disappointed in the least. Every thing I read in the other reviews was 100 spot on.
We had an awesome day in Rio and were able to see all the highlights within one day! Marcello, our private guide for this day, was unbelieveable. He was absolutely friendly, helpful and told us much about his City! He was on time and already bought the tickets for Corcovado and the Sugar Leaf up front as agreed by email which kept us from queuing so that we safed a lot of time. He provided also cold water and some snacks which was also really nice to have. This tour is perfect for those who do not have much time in Rio and/or want to be as felxible as possible. Already before we arrived in Rio, we were able to fine tune our tour in order to have more time for the places of interest we were more interested in. As the weather was a bit inconstant in the morning we changed the order of the places of interest twice - so that we have been able to wait for the weather to clear up and were able to visit the Sugar Leaf without clouds - what a perfect experience! We always felt save with Marcello and everywhere we were able to take our time - especially at the Corcovado and the Sugar Leaf, where Marcello dropped us off, fitted with a mobile in order to be able to text him before going down again so that he was at the agreed place in order to pick us up again! It was perfect to start the tour with the Corcovado as it was not that crowded.
All in all, we can highly recommend this tour with Marcello in Rio and would definitely book Marcello again!!! A perfect day in a perfect city with a perfect guide - thank you very much, Marcello, for your inimitable way of hosting us and this unforgettable time in Rio!
