First, the gardens were beautiful! We learned so much about native and non native plants. The staff was friendly and they knew their stuff! This was the one tour where I took the most photos! It was stunning!
The bonus was that we received door to door service. Our driver was so kind and was fun to ride with.
Amazing!!!! Leandro is the best tour guide!!!!!

Had a wonderful tour with Leandro. He picked me up on time. Drove carefully to the mist beautiful garden in Rio: Sitio Burle Marx.
The garden tour was great! We had great lunch after in a local restaurant that Leandro knew. And he kindly drove back touring the coastline. Leandro too the extra time to make this experience unforgettable beautiful.

If you are looking for this tour, ask for Leandro!!!! He is amazing

Monica provided an excellent tour and experience to sitio Roberto Burle Marx. The studio and gardens only opened up again last week and Monica made sure we saw all of the highlights of the spectacular grounds and understood the work of this great artist. She also built in a side-trip to Barra de Guaratiba and stopped off a local dairy and caixaca distillery. It was a wonderful afternoon and only possible because we used this service. Highly recommended!
Amazing Landscape

Even though it is a little bit far from Rio, it is so worth it. My husband is a landscape architect and Roberto Burle Marx is his hero. Once we started the tour, I understood why. He was an amazing artist on different mediums. The collection of plants is overwhelming. I would recommend going during the morning when is not that hot yet, it is really humid still but, I cannot imagine dealing with the humidity and the heat at 1 PM.
I am not a plant enthusiast and I found this very interesting

I only went on the tour because my husband is a landscape designer and a big Burle Marx fan wanted to go. I was pleasantly surprised to find myself interested, educated, and amazed by many facets of Burle Marx life and creativity. His impact on the world of design and especially Brazillian landscape architecture will not be forgotten. Well worth the time if you are visiting Rio for more than a couple days.
