    Luis Darin Private Tour Guide In Rio
    Stop: 10 minutes -
    This is a tailor-made tour and is fully customizable. The tour is strictly based on your particular interests. Your guide will follow your interests and maximize your time in Rio. Let you guide know what your likes and dislikes are and he will take you to places you would not otherwise reach on your own. There is no preset itinerary; you are free to play it by ear, planning the day's activities as you go, based on interests, conditions, weather, and other needs. Below you'll find a list of places that can be visited on this tour. You may book the tour and reach me afterwards to discuss the itinerary, or contact me first so we can tailor the tour to your needs. Tour is conducted in an air-conditioned vehicle driven by your tour guide.
