was founded in 1992 by Pedro Novak as a meaningful alternative
to the impersonal canned bus tours that most visitors take.
Pedro is a former engineer, navy officer and boy scout.
He was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro. He is of Hungarian
and Russian origin and speak seven languages: English, German,
French, Hungarian, Spanish, Italian and of course Portuguese.
1991, after 18 years as a quality and inspection engineer,
he became a Tour Guide leading bus trips to Porto
Seguro (Bahia State), to the Historical
Cities of Minas Gerais
- Ouro Preto - and
year later he went on his own and began leading private
tours and adventures to some of the most interesting places
in Brazil -- places that are not offered by travel agencies,
that tourists generally cannot go by themselves, or that
require specialized knowledge.
of his tours are highly personalized, can be customized,
and accomodate no more than four people in a Jeep used in
and around Rio, or in a station wagon, which is used for
transfers, tours outside Rio, and tours or transfers beginning/ending
in other cities.
travel agency offers such individualized and unique services
to so many destinations.
You have been dreaming to
travel somewhere in South America, have conditions
for that but do not know the right person or companion
to participate on that project, why not to try
Private Tours ?
logistics and traffic problems led Private Tours
to offer this alternative to a meaningful way
to know the country and its people living aside
of the social political
in touch and try it!
