Wonderful First Night in Rio Despite Rainy Weather
Nancy H, 21-11-2017
We arrived in Rio after a 15 hour trip to an overcast and ultimately drizzly to rainy afternoon. We were not sure how this tour would work out, but Luis made it interesting and so worthwhile. He has great stories about growing up in Rio and has all kinds of interesting information about everything. He helped us get the most out of our trip up to Sugarloaf. His car is also very comfortable and he picked us up from the lobby of our hotel and dropped us back as well so it was so easy, which was great for us. We would recommend Luis and while we bought his Sunset at Sugarloaf, he is willing to totally customize a tour to anywhere in or near Rio.
Una guía extraordinaria
