Ken je lokale gids

"Hallo, mijn naam is Koen, een van de lokale gidsen bij RioGuides. Ik ben geboren in België en in 2008 ben ik definitief naar Brazilië verhuisd. Sindsdien ben ik van beroep veranderd, ik heb de IT wereld achter gelaten en ben gestart als lokale gids in de staat Rio de Janeiro. Ik hou van de stad Rio en ik hoop dat ik de liefde en bewondering voor deze stad kan delen met de toeristen die een bezoek aan deze prachtige stad brengen. Ik hoop ook dat wanneer je naar Rio komt, je naast de voor de hand liggende bezienswaardigheden zoals het Christusbeeld en de Suikerbroodberg berg, ook probeert om andere bezienswaardigheden te bezoeken, zoals het historische centrum, de botanische tuin, het Tijuca woud en natuurlijk ook genieten van de prachtige en overbekende stranden.

"I'm  Marcia, 35 years old, I'm half Minas, half Bahia a mix of cheese (from Minas Gerais where I was born) and pepper (from Bahia where I lived the greater part of my life). I have been travelling, living and working around the globe. I lived in New York, London, Belgium and onboard a cruise ship where I met people from all over the world.   A few years ago I returned to Brazil and I decided to become a local tour guide in the city of Rio de Janeiro, the place that became my new hometown, once you get a taste of this city, you are hooked. I am interested in a wide variety of things: culture, music, arts, languages, travel, food,  meeting new people,…"

"My name is Fabiana, I am originally from the South of Brazil, but I already moved to Rio de Janeiro since 1993, after I lived in the United States for 3 years. Rio is my favored city in the whole wide world and I will make sure the city will also become one of your favorite destinations! I have been a tour guide for more than  15 years,  also with  a lot of international traveling experience,  and I am always looking for more choices and opportunities for our clients, making each tour a unique experience! Hope to see you soon in Rio de Janeiro!"

Superb guide; especially for families. We appreciated his flexibility to accommodate our needs and his ability to excite and educate our 9 year old son. Walking and taking public transportation is how we like to see any city on our first visit, so we took a walking tour of downtown to Santa Teresa covering a good distance in just over 6 hours. Koen is very knowledgeable and was great with the historical narration. He offered great tips on how to visit other sites throughout Zona Sul. Highly recommend!

after punctual pick-up at the hotel, tour of the obvious to do in Rio (cristo, sambadrome, football stadium, beaches, cathedral, etc.) koen also managed to squeeze in some history when visiting the city centre, beside the very pleasant talks on "his" Rio! giving a true inside picture. glad you also showed less famous part: like the cafeteria,downtown streets with music and locals having Saturday lunch/diner. some great tips for night-life ! we enjoyed our evening out.without you that would never worked.
Margriet Nefkens, Netherlands



We had a great day visiting Sugar Loaf and Corcovado. He took us to a local restaurant in Leblon overlooking the beach. He knows his stuff! Koen was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable about history and the places we visited. I will most definitely recommend him.
Maxine Baerwaldt, United States



A big city like Rio you can not see in one day, but Koen managed to show us the most important and nice places in Rio. That he speaks Dutch was for us very comfortable. Besides Rio he gave us good tips for our trip through Brazil. Koen is very sympathetic and for us he is a 5star+ rating. We surely hope to meet Koen again, in Brazil or Belgium. Once more: thanks Koen for a very nice stay in Rio. Henk and Tineke Nouwens Breda. Holland.

In Rio, Koen took us to all the great sights. He arranged for wonderful weather and we had clear views from Sugarloaf and the Redeemer statue. We got to see the beaches and downtown sites. Highly recommend his services.

Koen is awesome!! We did enjoy the tour which Koen arranged in Rio. Great car for transportation, visited lots of good places, and learned lots of history and story from tour. So lucky to have a nice and knowlegable tour guide. Thank you, my friend.

Koen went out of the way to make our arrival easier. He arranged for our luggage to be taken to our hotel so that the 4 of us could continue on our tour immediately after docking. His knowledge about Rio was certainly evident. He was quick to respond to the busyness of the city and planned our trip accordingly. We saw many more areas when we compared our notes with friends who went on the planned cruise ship tour. He was also gave us other tips for restaurants and sights for our extended stay. Great Job!

Our tour with Koenraad met all our expectations. He worked with a Favela resident and translated readily as we worked our way up and down the hillside. We got off the main streets and felt we had seen much of the way of life there without difficulty of any sort. Koenraad was very considerate, met us on time with private transportation to the favela, saw us back to the cruise terminal on the local bus (our choice) and provided a very satisfying tour.
Jeanne Jones, United States



Koenraad V. gave us a wonderful tour...even though our ship was late on arrival he did everything we asked and more...just wished I had had him for the next day also. I would give him a five star plus and know that I will certainly choose ToursByLocals again because of my good experience with this guide. Eleanor Goode.

Koenraad is a great communicator who genuinely enjoys sharing his city with visitors. He is flexible and creative, making the experience personalized.
Marilyn L., United States



I spent a wonderful day in Rio with Koen and couldn't be happier about the experience. He was extremely professional and yet very personable which made the tour very memorable. I arrived during the favela riots and yet Koen made me very comfortable and safe. He had great knowledge of the city and was willing to show me the areas that interested me most. With only 4 hours on my first visit to the city, I feel like I got a great introduction to a wonderful city. I strongly recommend Koen as a first guide!
Margaret Barthmaier, United States



Five out of five - definitely!! We had a great tour with Koenraad. We'll recommend your service to our friends! Only one recommendation for Koen - his car is a bit tight for 4 people. He should think about offering a group of 4 the option of paying the difference required to hire a van for more comfortable seating. Otherwise, everything was terrific. He is very knowledgeable about the local sights and he was also very accomodating to our needs.
Lori Schmidt, United States



Cher Koen, Merci pour ton excellent travail, ta competence et disponibilité. Grace à toi nous garderons un très bon souvenir du Brésil de son peuple varié et si chaleureux. Tu nous a donné l'envie d'y revenir souvent.
Amitiés, Martine et Francis, France



Beste Koen, Merci voor de goede zorgen en perfecte service. Tot een volgende gelegenheid.
Fleur en Bart, België



Hallo koen, Bedankt voor alle goede zorgen en ammusement. Het was een prachtige reis (met veel zon en variatie). Misschien tot nog eens. Veel succes met uw werk en met uw familie. Groetjes.
Miranda en Chris, België
