Fantastic Wedding!

“Wow, I am not even sure where to start with our review of Gus and our fairy tale wedding on Jacone Beach. Words cannot express how thrilled we were with Gus and our wedding. Absolutely everything was incredible! From the moment we reached out to him until the end of the wedding day everything was just amazing. He worked with us to create an unforgettable day. Every last detail was perfect. There isn't anything we would do differently. Gus took care of every detail and we loved every second of our special day. Thanks to all of his hard work in making our wedding the best day of our lives, we will cherish our memories forever!”

A Great Day with Gus

“Gus met us off our cruise ship - dozens of guides & taxis massing around the port but he spotted us and whisked us away in his clean a/c car for an action-packed sight-seeing day. Our 1st time in Rio so we wanted to see as much as possible in 8 hours. Gus certainly ticked all the boxes with that brief!! He took us to all the major spots, Corcavado, Copacabana, lunch on Ipanema beach, Ipanema hippy market, Sugar Loaf mountain and much more. He fast-tracked us at sites so as not to loose too much time queueing, his English is excellent, he was so clued-up about Brazilian history, culture, socio-economics, food etc and his love of Rio was infectious. We had a great, fun day and thoroughly enjoyed his company. Well done Gus....lasting memories.”
