I found that Jimmy Campbell was informed, interesting and helpful during my trip to South America. I had an unforgettable time in that strange and intriguing continent, assisted by Jimmy Campbell's expertise and guidance.
Jimmy war ein sehr guter und warmherziger Guide. Mit seinem Charme zeigte er uns 2 Tage Rio. Wir fühlten uns sehr gut aufgehoben. Aus Berlin schickten wir Jimmy eine Fliese für die Fliesentreppe. Die Fliese kam zerbrochen in Rio an. Jimmy klebte die Fliese und brachte unsere Fliese mit dem Künstler J. Selaron an der Treppe an. Bilder von der angebrachten Fliese, sandte er uns per Mail. Wir hoffen, dass wir mit einer Kreuzfahrt noch einmal Rio kommen und wir eine weitere Tour mit Jimmy unternehmen können. Fazit: Jimmy hält was er verspricht.

Jim is really very special and very individual, but that´s what makes the charme. A cool guy who knows Rio very well and with him it´s never boring. The best tour guide I have ever seen. He prays no facts down like the others but shows and tells you more about the hings behind. However due to its unconventional nature "older" people might be irritated.
