    Tours in Rio de Janeiro

    Rio is a wonderful place when you have a guide that takes you away from the ordinary! We spent two weeks in Rio before and after our cruise on the Insigina. Our guide Rafa was dilligent and took us to really great local places. We went to many local markets, special local's only beaches, and ate at the true Brazillian restaurants --- not in the guide books. He met us as we cruised down the coast taking us to coffee plantations, bird watching, secluded beaches, and rain forest places. He rented a boat for us in Ilha Grande and took us from Parati into the rainforest to see gorgeous birds. We have been to Rio twice before and never saw it so well or safely before Rafa. Cruise tours are always buses and lots of people... not personal. Rafa was far beyond wonderful. donrafainrio@yahoo.es He knows his stuff and made our New Years 2009-10 special. He designed our tour for just us making Rio and all the coast cities that he met us at very special!! from Robi1

    Santos - Brazil

    We were in Santos on the Insignia in December. It is a huge port and all the cruise ships come into one terminal. There were 8 cruise ships loading passengers when we arrived. It took our guide about 30 minutes to find us but he is relentless and followed our ship from Rio down the coast meeting us at every port including Ilha Grande (an island) where he rented a boat for us for the day. Cruise ship excursions can be a real BUST! We always use private guides as they go where we want and take us to interesting places where can experience the local foods, scenery, and beautiful beaches........ SANTOS was great.... Rafa, our guide made it that way for us as we couldn't find anything to do. donrafainrio@yahoo.es is his email. We loved Brazil...... from Robi1

    Rio's street crime NOT getting any better.

    We spent two weeks in Rio over New Years 2009-2010. We had no problems and had a wonderful time. But we had a great guide and felt safe with him everywhere. We went to many typical Brazilian places.......not for tourists.......... and really saw the local color. We cruised down the coast on the Insignia and Rafa, our guide, met our boat at each port......even Ilha Grande.......... an island park where he rented a boat for us and we went snorkling in the beautiful waters....... You can reach him at donrafainrio@yahoo.es.... We were in good hands and it made our cruise!! from Robi1

    We were on the Insignia in December enjoying the Brazilian coast. Rafa Torres met us in Rio and was a great guide. He also drove down the coast to Parati and Buzios and met us there as well. We love Brazil and have been there three times. Rafa made our trip special...... enjoy your cruise. donrafainrio@yahoo.es This is his email. from Robi1
