AboutHello there! What can I tell you about me? I was born in Rio in the beginning of the eighties and have lived here my whole life. Not on the same spot, though. As matter of fact, I´ve lived in 15 different address in Rio. (And no, my parents do not own a moving company if you're wondering about it). On the brightside, this has led me to a great amount of new corners in Rio. I´ve studied journalism and business administration and also I like to travel. A lot. I even blog about it here - www.osclaudiosnomundo.com So far I´ve been in more than 20 countries, but I always return back home safe and sound to watch the sunset in Ipanema again. I run a corporate events company alongside my beloved wife Claudia. I´m not kidding, we really have the same name. But at least we laught about it. Probably, she´ll join us in our local adventure. Almost garantee. And if you´re beer fan like myself, there´s a great chance that we'll wrap up the day in my prefered bar.

Past reviews of Claudio Lemos

Claudio is a truly carioca and can show you the beauties from Rio de Janeiro. Places to go, restaurants, the bars and the nature!

We spend a really great day with Claudio in Rio! Started mailing each other a few month before our visit, and came to an interesting program for our day to spend. Kept contact via WhatsApp whilst in Brazil before, to set the last details. Claudio is very responsive and accurate; bought some tickets in advance we couldn’t order from home, and he was also very flexible during our trip, fitting in a few extra’s that aren’t in any guide. We enjoyed our walks, had a great lunch, and made a dinner appointment for the evening because we couldn’t get enough of Claudio’s interesting and enthusiast stories. Loved Rio, but Claudio especially made it an unforgettable experience for the both of us. After Rio we moved on to Buzios and experienced some trouble which Claudio solved smoothly for us. Also got a lot of tips and advices before and after Rio which were really great. Thanks a million Claudio!

We had an amazing family holiday in Rio - and much of the credit for this experience was down to Claudio !!!

I booked Claudio for 2 full days (day 1 and day 5 of a week long holiday in Rio). My choice was largely based on the smiley picture. I have to say that my choice was absolutely 'spot on' (luck or judgement.....................???)

Claudio was very knowledgeable, put together a great itinerary for both days, including a Brazilian Musical concert on day 1, which was fab) and engaged really well with all four members of our group (myself, my wife, daughter and daughter's boyfriend). He was really nice, not over bearing - so struck just the right balance.

Claudio and I were in constant communication in the week leading up to our arrival, which again helped me enormously to plan the holiday. He made us feel really welcome, we learned lots of new things about Rio and Brazil generally and we were all really sad when we said our goodbyes to Claudio.

Rio is a fantastic city and Claudio is truly RIO's NUMBER ONE TOUR GUIDE - hopefully someone we will keep in touch with in future. I can wholeheartedly recommend Claudio.
