Marcelo and Be Free Tours were the highlights of our March 2020 vist to Rio. We did the All Day tour of Rio on our first day in the city, which was great to get a good overview of layout and history. Marcelo was the driver and Mariana was our guide. They were punctual upon pick up, flexible in the itinary, and lots of fun! We hit the major sites including Christ the Redeemer, but the highlight was going to the Samba Carnaval school for a back stage tour of the whole operation. We got to dress up in the costumes, drank a caipirinha with snacks, and asked questions to our hearts content. BIG fun! Our second full day of touring was to Petropolis, which is about an hour outside of Rio to the summar palace. Marcelo was the driver and tour guide. The scenery on the drive was pleasant and the royal house was beautiful. We stopped at a gorgeous brewary for lunch and some brews. It was a relaxing and informative day. The communications throughout the whole experience were excellent. Marcelo responded to our inquireis (before, during, and after) quickly and always with helpful suggestions. Highly recommended.
