This guy really knows his stuff! His history is amazing. I’m so happy that he went above and beyond his normal tour duties to show us a couple other gems in the city!!!

At short notice we decided for a tour through one of the favelas. The hotel organized us tour guide Marco Bransford within a couple of hours. Having made use of personal guides in many cities around the globe including Rio previously, we easily can say that Marco is among the top five percent in our experience. Grown up locally he is fluent in English, tremendously knowledgeable with great depth on any subject, is reading the minds of his clients before they know what they want to say or ask, very smooth in dialoguing and communication, open minded and with a high level of expressing joy naturally. We felt safe in the favela visited, in his (clean) car, and the local restaurant we went afterwards. Thank you, Marco, for the great afternoon. We will be back for another tour with you. Bruno and Carol from Switzerland

Marco was an incredible guide that really helped us get insider information on the Imperial Palace and the city of Petropolis. He drove us from Rio to Petropolis offering information along the way! He was extremely flexible and attentive to what we wanted to do during the tour, letting us set the pace. He also took us to a wonderful home with beautiful extensive gardens for lunch after our touring. He was very COVID conscious (mask, clean car, lots of hand sanitizer, and driving with the windows down when possible). At the end of the tour he even helped us find a place that would offer a Covid test for our way back to the US the next day. He really goes the extra mile to make your tour great!

Highly recommend Marco. We booked two full days of touring with him and his driver. Marco is extremely knowledgeable about Rio's sights, history, culture, architecture. He is an experienced guide, skilled at setting and adjusting an itinerary to meet the particular interests of his clients. I came home with notes on topics to research and read about: Brazilian authors, aviation pioneers, landscape architects, etc. I appreciated his good conversation and good humor. We had fun and we learned a lot....we loved our time in Rio and Marco gets a lot of the credit for that.

Marco collected us from our hotel promptly in the morning. Had a fantastic trip to Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf but in between he took us to parts of Rio we would never have seen. A real gentleman and really lovely company. His knowledge of Rio is second to none would highly recommend. Thank you Marco for wonderful day.
