WHY Daniel Cabral - Private Tour Guide?

My name is Daniel Cabral, my friends call me Danny. I am a carioca (native of Rio) and I have been working as an official tour guide in Rio de Janeiro for the last 10 years and I really love my job. I speak very good english, spanish and portuguese and have large experiance on taking people around Rio.

I make private tours around Rio de Janeiro, the marvelous city. I have a very confortable car and would appreciate to have you as my client. I can take you to the most famous attractions in Rio like the Statue of Christ and Sugar Loaf but I also can take you to other places just known by locals.
This is a big privilege for me to have the opportunity to show and make the visitors enjoy the city where I was born and love so much.

 I booked Daniel for a private tour of Rio on June 22, 2012. Daniel did not disappoint. He picked us up at our hotel, and first took us to a nice, hidden away part of Tijuca Forest to see a waterfall, then drove us up to Corcovado, stopping along the way for various vantage point views over the city. Along the drive, he provided us with historical information and answered every question we had (he speaks perfect English and Portuguese)! After Cristo, we went down through Santa Teresa into Centro, where Daniel took us to see many different locations, including the cathedral, Lapa, the aqueduct, the Selaron steps (a must see - we also met Selaron himself and took a photo), various city squares, and other locations, all the while providing us great info and being the friendliest tour guide around. We then shared a magnificant traditional lunch of Feijoada (I think this is how it is spelled) at a local restaurant, and a delicious Tarte de Limao from Columbo bakery. We ended the day driving through Flamengo, Botafogo, Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon, and San Cornado, and even took a quick walking tour through the Rocinha favela.
Daniel is reasonably priced, very knowledgable, highly professional, and a great guy to be around. If you are visiting Rio, I highly recommend hiring Daniel to show you around the city.

Daniel is a very kind person, his range of knowledge encompass not only Rio related stuff, but all kind of things you want to know about Brazil, no matter if historie or actual circumstances of living. Beside of the fact that Daniel has a very kind and honest personality and is well experienced in his job ,his capability of speaking English is very high and therefore it makes a conversation extremely easy and you feel comfortable from the fist second. I am very happy that I found him in the Tripadvisor, and that at the end I made the absolute right choice: Daniel, many thanks and hope to meet again one day .....Marijana and Dan (Germany).

 For my first trip to Rio I decided to go for a full day private tour. I chose Daniel Cabral because of the excellent Tripadvisor reviews he has received, and my expectations were more than met. Daniel is not only a great guy but also very reliable and he has much to tell about the unique sights and the people of his fascinating hometown Rio. Moreover, I did appreciate his insights and recommendations, especially about Rio hang gliding which I did the other day. I strongly recommend Daniel's full day Rio tour. It's save, relaxed and comfortable, and there is so much to see like Corcovado, Tijuca National Park, Sugarloaf, City centre, Copacabana etc. I really enjoyed that tour very much!

                  WHY RIO de JANEIRO ?

If you are looking for a place to spend a holiday, to enjoy amazing beaches, great food, wonderful nature and meet one of the most friendly people in the world, Rio de Janeiro is this place!!!

Natural Beauties - Rio has the most famous beaches in Brazil like Copacabana and Ipanema. But Barra da Tijuca and Recreio dos Bandeirantes are also very popular for the cariocas (locals of Rio). In Rio you also find the biggest urban forest in the world - the Tijuca National Park.


Sports - Rio is the perfect place for sports like surfing, wind surfing, trekking, rock climbing, hang gliding or you can just make your jogging along the beach like the cariocas do every day. But number one is Futebol (soccer) you should not miss watch a futebol match in Rio!!!

Culture - A large part of Brazil's history is preserved in Rio. Very good museums,  portuguese colonial architecture from 17th and 18th centuries, a french influence from beginning of 20th century, barroque churches etc.   


Bussiness - Rio has all the infra structure necessary to make your event like the biggest convention center in Latin America (Riocentro).

 We had a great experience with Daniel. I contacted him last minute and he was able to accomodate us very quickly. I went to Rio de Janeiro with my father for the first time and only had 2 days. He took us to the best spots in Rio de Janeiro and we had a great time. He was very informative and taught us a lot about this great city where he is proud to be from. He speaks perfect English and Spanish which was great for my father that speaks Spanish. Would definately recomment him to anyone coming to RIo de Janeiro wanting a great tour with someone who is professional and knows a great deal about the city. Thanks Daniel!

 Daniel is a knowledgeable and friendly guide. We enjoyed our day tour with him. We must commend him for his valuable recommendations in Rio and especially for helping us the day after the tour. As we could not speak Portuguese, he helped us to make a call for our airport transfer. We really appreciated his help for helping us with this as the transfer service was not engaged through him. Yet, he was very responsive to our e-mail for help and offered assistance immediately. We will recommend his tour guide services to anyone, in a heartbeat!
