Newton was such a great guide—so full of passion for Rio de Janeiro and Brazil itself. He’s definitely THE guide to get if you want to go on a tour in Rio. Just an amazing all-around, kind-hearted individual. We even struck up a friendship and he took me to my destination in Brazil. I can’t say enough great things about Newton. He was what made the tour worth it! The cute animals were just an added bonus

I loved! It was a private tour and our guide, Mr. Newton, was super friendly and attentive, he explained the history very well. I did several tours with the company, but without a doubt the trip with Mr. Newton was the best. A highly recommended tour!
