No regrets! We toured three cities in eight days and this was one of my most effortless trips. I was able to relax and enjoy this trip without the hassle of acounting for the details. Carlos totally understood, we came to experience the heartbeat of Brazil; from the trendiness of Rio to the sleepy streets of Cacheoria. He was relentless... More

Carlos has an unyielding desire to bring real world education to his tours. He takes you beyond the text books and glossed over history of the nation and gives you the real. I felt so blessed to be led by him in getting to learn about the African Diaspora in Brazil. His dedication, integrity, and can-do attitude definitely perked me... More

If you are looking for a guide to show you around Rio, Carlos is the man. I was in town taking photographs and under Carlos's watchful eye I always felt safe and relaxed. He is extremely knowledgeable, especially regarding African aspects of Rio. Carlos was always prepared to go the extra mile to assist me in obtaining my photos, gaining... More

I used Carlos for 3 days on a recent photo trip to Rio. He was always punctual and flexible with my ever changing itinerary. Sometimes we started early and sometimes finished late but he was able to accommodate. His knowledge of Rio and its history was also very good. And as Rio isn't the safest place in the world it's...

I joined a few of tours organized by Carlos. The first was during Carnaval where we attended parades of several samba schools in competition in the big stadium There is no question that Carlos' guidance was necessary as he maneuvered us through a very crowded stadium and provided background on the groups parading. It was all very helpful and fun.... More

Carlos was wonderful. Prompt, attentive, informative, good natured and just an all around good guy! We got the Afro-Brazilian tour and were exposed to the African aspects of Rio's rich heritage, history and culture. Even when we went to Bahia, Carlos connected us with someone from his network of guides. We had an absolutely amazing stay and he play a... More

Came to Brazil with Runoko Rashidi's group and I felt your tour enhanced my knowledge greatly. A lot was accomplished the short time we were there, I will be back and i will look for you up to pick up where we left off. You were awesome.

I took a trip with my mother, aunt, and friend to Rio. Our group varied in ages and interests and Carlos was able to weave all of our expectations into a wonderful multi- day tour! He provided the history behind every location we visited, took us to great restaurants, set up a private samba lesson, and even took us to... More

As first time visitors to RIO we were unsure of what to do and or where to go, we wanted to see the sights as well as discover the culture and history that underline the country of Brazil and RIO. We were not disappointed! Carlos delivered on all things mentioned as well as local cuisine and visits to places we... More

Twelve days with Carlos as a guide was indeed an enlightening experience. Carlos was able to give much historical as well as present day information throughout the tour. He is an excellent tour guide who pays attention to any special needs of individuals in the group. I would highly recommend Carlos as a guide as he was obviously prepared to... More
