Since June 2021 after 29 years of good and reliable services,
tours with the Jeep are NOT available
anymore. Jeep was sold and is now "living"
in São Paulo. Good times are gone ! Pandemia effect.
I am still using my old white Fiat SW, mainly due to safety
and logistics reasons.
the period from 24th October to 29th November 2023, I
will be out of the office with limited access to internet.
Thanks for your understanding.
Welcome to the Private Tours World,
your satisfaction is our goal.
Beach: It is hard to believe that this isolated
pristine beach is within the city limits! Most visitors to Rio do
not have the opportunity to visit this beautiful beach where Michael
Caine and Demi Moore filmed some memorable scenes for the movie
"Blame it on Rio". Grumari Beach located 30 miles (45
km) west of the center of the city in an Environmental Protected
area (APA) is not part of the canned tours of Rio, but can be part
of your memories!
Rio, Brazil and South America
Tours has been offering Tours on a private basis for 29 years
and more than 5700 satisfied clients fully documented ! Due
to increasing traffic and safety problems mainly in big cities,
we are concentrating our tours outside the city area as short
trips, sometimes combining business trips with some relaxing
touring in deep contact with Nature and local culture. This
is a different way to learn about the history of Brazil and
can be easily absorbed and understood the way it is offered
and depends highly on how much time you have for it.
Tours offers You a personalized experience combining our know-how
with your personal profile, needs and wallet. Some of the
suggested destinations are: Paraty,
Ilha Grande, Tiradentes and Ouro
Seguro (where the Portuguese first arrived
in 1500), the fascinating Amazon
basin and Pantanal,
Spotting, Bird watching,
stones rock hound,
where you can mine on your own
and buy what you have found ( the negotiation is very interesting
and sometimes can take hours!); Bolivia
are also very special destinations with their
contrast between the Altiplano and the Amazon basin mainly
if done by land leaving or entering Brazil at Corumbá,
Assis Brasil, Cruzeiro do Sul or Tabatinga. Flights may be
used to cover some domestic distances to save time.
your arrival in Rio by plane, bus or ship are available under
request. Interstate or intercity transfers are also an interesting
option to be considered. Tours to the Northeast of Brazil
Cidades National Park ( Piauí state)
dos Guimarães ( just beside the
Northern Pantanal area) are very interesting and worth to
