    I booked a six day tour with Francisco and he made each and everyday an exciting  with a new experience.  This was not my first trip to other countries but it was my first trip to Rio de Janeiro and Brazil.  Francisco speaks fluent French, Spanish, English,  Portugese and I am sure  few other laguages that I haven't mentioned.  Words can express my appreciation for the quality of Francisco's attention to detail and attention to his clients as he picked me up each day puctionally on time and professionally delivered the promised sightseeing event scheduled for each day (six days) that I had reserved. I highly recommend Francisco as your guide for his skill, knowledge and patience.  Your experience with Francisco will be the highlight of your trip to Rio de Janeiro and Brazil.

    The three of us enjoyed our time with Francisco,  a very knowledgeable guide. collecting us from our ship, he took us up Corcovado to view Christ in the misty cloud! An excellent tour around and a superb lunch followed by trying on outfits worn at the carnival.  Lasting memories of an enjoyable day before flying home.

    Francisco was the absolute best guide we could have asked for.  Stopping through Rio for only about 48 hours, we were able to see and do so much in one day with Francisco.  He is incredibly knowledgable about the city and its history, and we were able to learn so much.  He is also super friendly and kind and he was a great addition to our little group for the day.  He even went above and beyond and offered us a ride to the airport the next day, where he escorted us all the way to the ticket counter to make sure we had no issues getting out!  I can't say enough good things about Francisco and I would 100% urge anyone headed to Rio take one of his tours!

    Amazing experience!  Francisco speaks fluent English and French, which was much appreciated.  I had the chance to see everything I wanted and benefit from many explanations to expand my knowledge of Rio de Janeiro.  Thank you Francisco for your kindness and patience!  I loved the tour and wish to come back for more!

    Anyone can show you where the beaches and great restaurants are in this beautiful city BUT if you want to learn about Rio ... her amazing people, the incredible culture and all of the tucked away "gems" that make up this beautiful city then spend the day with Fransisco.  You will return wanting to relocate and make Rio your home!   

  • Jackie

    Thanks to Francisco's amazing knowledge and familiarity with Rio, we feel we 'did' Rio in 24 hours! Francisco took us to all the hidden (and not so hidden) gems of the city all the while explaining the history and stories of each location. We would not hesitate to contact Francisco again should we be lucky enough to return to this wonderful city. He was great company and happy to tailor the day to our needs and interests. He's your man in Rio!
