What you'll do

My favorite area from Rio, Barra de Guaratiba, is about 40 minutes from Jardim Oceanico, Barra, in the western part of Rio. Once you reach the wild beaches we will go through the most beautiful spots of the city: beaches to take the breath away traveled throughout the course, lookouts with sensational views and charming trails until we reach Telégrafo. I guarantee you that Instagram and Facebook photos will all be changed. We will pass the beach of Pepe, Reserva, Macumba, Prainha, and Grumari. Our first stop will be in Guaratiba and we will take the trail for 40 minutes and we will arrive at Telegraph Rock where we can have an incredible view, where we can see all the wild beaches, take pics and stay there for 30 minutes and then go down to our beach - Prainha, where we will stay for 50 minutes for photos, baths, walking. Return with everyone to our meeting point. Your memories will be in your memory, memory card and social networks.

Original from Rio, former resident of New York City, where I worked with hospitality. I left the corporate career to dedicate myself to my passion that is nature, food, spirituality and human relations. I work with hospitality for more than 10 years and love to participate in the human interactions, always with good humor and fun. We will have exclusive access to Guaratiba, since there is no access by public transportation and on the trails there is a need for knowledge to avoid getting lost. I also know the best 'açaí' in the region with several flavors and good prices.

this is absolutely worth it! Marcio is a great local guide who is very passionate about his homeland. we are traveling during covid-19 lockdown and brazil has closed the beaches and parks BUT Marcio knows all the local spots and how to get you there. we went to the instagram famous telephoto rock and we're the ONLY ONES THERE! It was truly amazing, my wife and I got so many great photos and feel like Marcio is now a friend. I highly recommend this experience, especially during the covid pandemic if you are in Rio de Janeiro right now.

I had an awesome time touring with Marcio! It was just me and one other person so it felt more like friends getting together and having a great time. Marcio gave us good information about the history of the area, and turns out he’s an awesome photographer :-) He also showed us some secret places along the way. Do yourself a favor and book this tour!

Marcio is very kind and social. We did the trip only by 2 of us, and thanks to him I knew new people in the Prainha out of nowhere, haha, memorable experience
