We just met Marcelo this morning but his warm, energetic and fun personality made us feel like a good friend was showing us around Rio today. Not only is he very knowledgeable able all the sights we visited but he went above and beyond by...More
We did one tour with Marcelo, but I have no doubt that any tour that you do with Rio Gay Tours - Private Tours will be just as amazing. Marcelo is extremely professional, yet very fun, charismatic and knowledgeable. He takes pride on what he...More
I give Marcelo 5 stars during a tour that we did in Rio. My partner and I visited the Christ The Redeemer statue in Corcovado on a cloudy and rainy day. We did it with a different tour company and it was just ok. A...More

He was perfect! Very...More
Our carefully-planned and long-anticipated Christmas in Rio de Janeiro was thrown into confusion when Azul Airlines unilaterally switched our flight outbound from Rio to Montevideo from December 26 to December 24. Thankfully I had already engaged Marcelo to show us around on 23 December, our...More
We scheduled Marcelo for late December to have a tour of Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain. He was right on time and ready to go. But he said he had “Catholic Guilt” because it was extremely overcast and we would only be able to...More
I recommend the tour guide we used, Marcelo. You can book him on Vayable. I don't know I he's available for your dates, but if he is, you won't find anyone more expert at making you feel VIP as you discover Rio in your... More
