Manu Peclat's Reviews

    My husband and I hardly ever hire tour guides as we love to explore on our own, go off the beaten path, see the places tourists usually don’t venture out to, see how locals live, eat like locals and feel that we are not mere passerbies, but , even if we are there for a short period of time, we belong… We knew we’d need help in Rio, so we met Manu. The Best. Decision. Ever! Not only he showed us a real Rio de Janeiro, taking us to places we’d never found or dared to go on our own, he showed us why he so passionately loves that city and so proud of! We saw Rio through his eyes, and Manu’s contagious love for his city, touched us, and we too fell in love with it. At that time, we felt we too belonged… Out of the few tours we took throughout our travels, we remember the places, never the tour guides. We not only remember Manu, we became friends. Call Manu, go explore, catch his crazy passion for one of the most magical cities on Earth, fall in love with it, and you will go back home with memories and a friend to last a lifetime!

    I had a group of (15) people attending a Trade Show/Expo at the Riocentro from March 28th – April 5th. I presented a very demanding schedule to Manu – transporting my group with some bags and boxes everyday to the Riocentro. We had to change the schedule a few times and Manu never once said NO – he always had a very positive attitude and made it work. He brought our group to the Super Market a few times, helped us with local foods and customs and even helped us load our bags in the Van. I also needed help with a local SIM card, Manu said NO PROBLEM and he helped me obtain a SIM card, even going so far as walking in to a Vivo store and translating to the ‘Vivo Guru’ what we needed. I was up and running in no time. I can not say enough about Manu – he was very welcoming, honest and had a great attitude. And did I mention, his English is fantastic. The last couple of days he set up a tour for the group and we really had a great time. I would highly recommend Manu for setting up any requirements in the Rio area and as an excellent tour guide. He truly made our trip that much more enjoyable. We will miss Manu and hope to come back for his assistance.

Son of a spanish imigrant to south america, but born and raised in Brazil, Manu Peclat had a 4 years high school educational background in the US, which turned him the "most americanized" local tour operator in Rio de Janeiro. Due to the remarkable clear and easy to understand way of speaking english and spanish, the sense of being educated in the US, gave Manu Peclat the perfect feeeling of what are the expectations and desires that his guest/tourists would like to experience on their trip to Rio!! To be in touch with the world, Manu Peclat also learned french during the graduation period in Brazil, spotting him in contact with people from throughout the world.
