My name is Luis Darin and I was born and raised in Rio. In 2003, after living for 8 years abroad, I've decided to come back to my hometown, and for the past 9 years I've been working full time as a licensed and accredited local tour guide in Rio, showing the city to foreigners on vacation and also providing assistance and ground transportation services to businessmen during their stay in Rio. I'm quite fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese and have a degree in tourism and an MBA on environmental management.
Places that are not so touristy are my specialty. I’m very passionate about Rio and showing places that are off the beaten path is something I like very much.
My tours are done on a private basis, tailor made, and performed in a private car. I'll be very glad to offer you customized and qualified private tour guide assistance. The idea of a tailor made tour is to turn that day into a magical moment that you will remember for many years. My goal is to mach and even exceed your expectations.
Flexibility is the key word on the tailor made tours I provide. This means that I'll help you to create your own tour itinerary, so you can see the places you want, the way you want to see them and at your own pace.
I’m a free lance tour guide and therefore my tariff depends on the time of the year, the number of passengers and the chosen tour. Please, get in touch with me and promptly respond to your request.
I can provide ground transportation for the passengers. Typically the private transfers and tours are performed in an air-conditioned sedan, with up to 4 passengers. However, upon request, larger vehicles can be provided.
