Carlos fue nuestro guía en Río de Janeiro. Estuvimos pocos días por lo que tuvimos que ver muchas cosas sin descanso. Carlos se encargó de que viéramos todo lo principal y no nos dejáramos nada importante. Además el día q subimos a ver el Cristo Redentor hizo un día horrible y apenas se veía nada y Carlos nos llevó de nuevo al día siguiente q estaba soleado y pudimos sacarnos la espinita. Además lo explica todo fenomenal y es muy atento. Sin duda lo recomiendo.

Carlos took us on a wonderful, efficient and fun tour of Rio de Janeiro. We were able to see so much in such a short time and without feeling rushed at all. Carlos was very good at priortizing what we wanted to see and guiding us accordingly. Carlos was also flexible, giving us time to shop and eat where we wanted to (we're mostly vegetarian in Brazil, enough said). Carlos is chalk filled with information and perfect English to explain it in. He had an answer for all my questions about places seen, history, political climate and culture. Most importantly, I felt very safe with Carlos, he made sure we stayed safe and guided us on how to navigate ourselves in public. I highly recommend him. You won't be disappointed.
