What To Expect

Sitio Roberto Burle Marx
After the pickup, we'll drive to Barra de Guaratiba district, which is on the west side of the city, where the "Sítio Roberto Burle Marx" is.

We'll enjoy the landscape on the way there and the view of the coast with its beautiful beaches. Once we arrive at Roberto Burle Marx's Estate, I will guide you through its gardens and we'll visit his former house that is a museum nowadays, his studio, and a chapel from the seventeenth century that is inside the property.

Roberto Burle Marx was a Brazilian landscape architect, who created the tropical modern garden in Brazil. He was considered one of the greatest landscape designers of the twentieth century. He donated his property to the federal government in 1985, nine years before he passed away. It has a huge collection of plants (3.500 species) from Brazil and some other countries from Asia and Africa as well.

A Garden Lover’s Paradise with a great guide
Pamela C, 05-01-2023
A group of friends and I, had a wonderful time on our tour of sitio Burle Marx.
Patrícia is a fantastic guide. Her enthusiasm for the gardens and house is contagious. Our tour included transportation from Leblon to and from the site which made the experience easy and fast.
During the ride to the sitio, Patrícia gave us descriptions of where we were and brought books for us to review. It is a well thought experience from start to finish.
The sitio is garden lovers paradise. Truly spectacular nature and gorgeous destination.
Patrícia has been my guide for other city tours as well and I continue to choose her bc she is reliable, knowledgeable and her tours are fun. She loves Rio and it shows!
I recommend to everyone who visits Rio.
Highly knowledgeable and experienced guide

I always feel safe with Patricia when I travel with her. She is trustworthy, always on time and a great communicator.

Her tours are great value for money and
she has very good attention to details on her tours.

She offers a range of tours and activities in Rio and its surroundings, including lovely bike tours to the Flamengo parque, Lagoa, Jardim Botânico etc.

She also offers trips to places like Ilha Grande, Búzios, Petrópolis and Fazenda Aliança etc.
I can also highly recommend joining her to Sítio Burle Marx.

She is knowledgeable about plants and knows every corner of Rio. A true Carioca.
Excellent Visit

Patricia is a fantastic guide. She has so much knowledge to share about Sitio Roberto Burle Marx. We learned so much about this fascinating location because of her expert knowledge of botany, history, anthropology and culture.
Best Guide for History, Culture and Gardens

Patricia is a masterful guide who easily flows from touring hot spots in Rio to escorting visits to the artful gardens of Roberto Burle Marx. Patricia is simply the best!

Our visit was made at the suggestion of our guide Patricia Silva , who once worked at the Burle Marx garden. It was made particularly rewarding by having her with us. It was a most enjoyable three hours we spent on out tour.
