The itiniraries are made for lovers of nature, secret sights and local culture. That´s your chance to have a great insight into the hidden treasures of Rio. I offer private tours in the city of Rio de Janeiro It´s a personalized experience combining my knowhow with the personal profile and needs of the customers. All the private tours are available by car which fit confortably until 6 people. Due the traffic jam, weather conditions and passengers´s mood the itineraries are very flexible. All the tours are booked upon request and availability.
