Default Jose Olimpio - Tour Guide for Rio

Just returned from our RCCL Mariner of the Seas Around South America cruise from Jan 4th to Feb. 3rd. Was a fantastic trip - we hired Jose Olimpio (www.rioturist.com) as our private guide for the two days we were in
Rio - great service - saw everything the ship's tours do but much more
personal and not the "cattle call" experience. Jose tailored our days per
what we wanted to see and what he thought should not be missed. The
highlight for my DH and I was our lunch at ProCao' (spelling) - a truly
fantastic BBQ restaurant !!! (just the memories make my mouth water !!).
We toured with another couple using Jose's car - we liked the fact that he
was at our beck and call for 24/7 - very personalized service and hope
we can call upon him again in the future. We felt very safe at all times
because of his presence.

The breaths you take are nothing compared to the moments that take your breath away !!
