The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

Reader recommendation: Rio de Janeiro tour guide Marco Madeira

Going to Rio de Janeiro? An @latimestravel reader recommends an expert, funny tour guide

I can't help but recommend Marco Madeira. He is a great guide: knowledgeable, funny and made our visit to Rio de Janeiro a superb experience. A full day in Rio (six to eight hours) costs $270 and includes Sugarloaf Mountain, the statue of Christ the Redeemer and the old part of the city. Price includes car and tour guide but not admission tickets.
