Tour by Claudio

Hello there! What can I tell you about me? I was born in Rio in the beginning of the eighties and have lived here my whole life. Not on the same spot, though. As matter of fact, I've lived in 15 different address in Rio. On the brightside, this has led me to a lot of interesting corners of Rio. I've studied journalism and business administration and also I like to travel. A lot. I even blog about it here – www.osclaudiosnomundo.com.

So far I've been in more than 30 countries, but I always return back home safe and sound to watch the sunset in Ipanema again. And if you're beer fan like myself, there's a great chance that we'll wrap up the day in my preferred bar.

Aren't you tired of same old same old tour guides? Wouldn't it be great to get to know the city with a local? Even better if it’s your pal, right?

Balanced tour and pleasant companion
for Claudio’s tour (Tailored Tour of Rio de Janeiro)
Although, I had vague ideas where I wanted to go on my last day in Rio, Claudio was very spontaneous, showing me additional locations along the way. He seemed knowledgeable and I had a good sampling of few different neighborhoods in the city.
A great day!
for Claudio’s tour (Tailored Tour of Rio de Janeiro)
I had the chance at short notice to spend a weekend in Rio but didn’t know where to go. Through likealocal I found Claudio. He helped me plan the day in advance and then met at my hotel on Saturday morning. I had a really good day, we saw all the top sights and also some areas I never would have known about - plus a great spot for lunch. I’d highly recommend it!

Great tour!
for Claudio’s tour (Tailored Tour of Rio de Janeiro)
We got in contact with Claudio a few days before our trip to Rio. He was really caring to organize the perfect tour for us and asked us about what we would like to see and what our interests were. We met up directly at our hotel and spent a great day walking around Santa Teresa and downtown Rio with Claudio. Thanks to him we had the chance to discover a lot about the city: amazing point of view, walk in charming places and streets, meal in a typical local restaurant and great local bar to have a cold beer in the evening! We have been experiencing the local life in a way we couldn't have done without Claudio. In addition to be a very welcoming and kind person, he is a true Carioca with so much knowledge about the city, its culture and its history, which made the tour even more pleasant. Thanks again Claudio for sharing your passion for your city with us, we had a great day!

Thanks a million, Claudio!

We spend a really great day with Claudio in Rio! Started mailing each other a few month before our visit, and came to an interesting program for our day to spend. Kept contact via WhatsApp whilst in Brazil before, to set the last details. Claudio is very responsive and accurate; bought some tickets in advance we couldn’t order from home, and he was also very flexible during our trip, fitting in a few extra’s that aren’t in any guide. We enjoyed our walks, had a great lunch, and made a dinner appointment for the evening because we couldn’t get enough of Claudio’s interesting and enthusiast stories. Loved Rio, but Claudio especially made it an unforgettable experience for the both of us. After Rio we moved on to Buzios and experienced some trouble which Claudio solved smoothly for us. Also got a lot of tips and advices before and after Rio which were really great.

Feel like a Carioca and see best places in Rio
for Claudio
Claudio is an extremly friendly and flexible guy. Although we contacted him a few days before departure, he put together a great mix of what to see, do and experience at Rio. Whatever you expect - be sure that it will be excelled. Claudio knows his city so well and is interested in so many Areas, that it is like being together with an old friend. For some moments I even felt like being a Carioca myself :-) Thank you Claudio for your hospitality and great moments. I can fully recommend you, best we ever experienced!
Best evening in Rio!
for Claudio’s tour (Dinner with a Local in Rio de Janeiro)
We had booked the guided tour and the dinner with Claudio at the same time before our trip and we didn't regret it for a second! After having spent a great day with Claudio, we met him again a few days later to experience the "dine with locals" activity. We had one of our best evenings with Claudio and his friend. Thanks to him, we discovered the local flavors around a delicious meal. From the appetizers to the dessert everything was simply perfect! The place was lovely and charming, with Samba music in the background. Claudio also gave us lots of tips for the rest of our holidays and even stayed in contact with us afterward to be sure everything was going fine. We really appreciated his hospitality. Spending time with a local when travelling was a first for us and we are really happy we did it. This is a very good experience to have the chance to meet locals and share about the everyday life with them. We would like to say a million thanks to Claudio for the great time we had in Rio and for the amazing meal!
