I am glad we spend a few days with him as we got see a lot more of the city than the usual typical tourist sites. It is clear Manu is very proud of his city and really enjoys showing people around, for him... More

What a great experience having Manu as our private tour guide for a day!! He welcomed us at our hotel in the morning and took us on a "full-day-rio-experience" covering the best attractions of the city. It was a really entertaining and informative day. In addition to that, we had the great pleasure of having a traditional Brazilian lunch. Really... More

We had the absolute pleasure of being introduced to wonderful Rio by Manu Peclat. We spend a whole day visiting both the must see-sights and going off the beaten path to explore some of Rio's lesser known attractions. It was a tour de force of Rio's history, life, culture and culinary delights with Manu keeping us constantly entertained and very... More

Manu was unable to guide us due to a ill family member however he had an associate 'Vitor' take his place in stead. Vitor was on time, spoke good english and was very helpful and informative. We were able to see all the main sites in one day and Vitor took us to where he paraglides and we were able... More

What can I say about Manu that has not already been said? For starters, Manu was an EXCELLENT guide. He is extremely informative and flexible. Manu helps you to plan your tour according you (and your family) likes. Manu helped us plan a boat trip, my son's first surfing lessons and many other adventures that we would never have thought...

Manu was a very knowledgeable tour guide. We were there for the Paralympic Games and had only one day to tour the city. Manu was prompt, courteous, knowledgeable and friendly and I would highly recommend his services.

While in Rio for the Paralympic Games, we wanted to be sure to get out and see the lovely city of Rio! After reading several reviews online, we decided against the group tour option and found Manu through his great reviews on TripAdvisor. Having a private tour guide/vehicle was definitely an advantage, as we were really able to get a... More

Our family of four recently visited Rio and decided to engage Manu due to his outstanding ratings on Trip Advisor. We were certainly not disappointed. Our communications with him both at home and in Rio were excellent. He arrived with his driver Marvin promptly on both days and we filled in 7-8 hours with ease whilst encompassing all the great...

This was my second time going to Rio and I wanted to set up a tour. Manu was rated the best and I can see why. He's very personable and not only knows the information inside and out, he's very passionate and enthusiastic about his culture. Would recommend him to everyone!

Staying in Urca

Neighbourhood Profile
Urca
Urca is one of the oldest areas in Rio. Known for its incredible views of the city, the neighbourhood runs along Guanabara bay, providing visitors with an opportunity to watch the sunset from one of Rio’s greatest natural treasures: Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de Acucar). It is said that the locals in Urca are “bon vivant,” which is one of the reasons the area attracts people of all styles and ages. Urca is the perfect place to take a stroll and appreciate the area’s beautiful architecture, enjoy a cocktail and some delicious seafood pastries at a bar, or bring a bottle of wine and enjoy it while sitting anywhere along the stone seawall known as the “mureta.”
