Family trip to Rio

After months of planning, my family and I were able to finally make it to Rio! Tavi arranged airport transportation for us, and we had our private tour of Rio during our time there. We were able to check out the Metropolitan Cathedral, Lapa Arches, the Selaron Steps, the iconic Cristo O Redentor, lunch in Santa Teresa, and finished off at Sugarloaf Mountain. Tavi was in frequent communication with us during our time in Rio, and made sure we were safe and comfortable during our tour. Definitely recommend Rio Love Story for anyone coming to Rio!!!!! Thank you again Tavi!

Tavi is knowledgeable, personable, and made our first day (and first time; 7 of us!) in Rio an unforgettable experience!

I would not hesitate to book a tour with him next time I’m in Rio. If you’re looking for someone who knows and loves the city and can educate you while still having fun, Tavi is your guy!
