  • Excelente tour por diferentes lugares de Rio... Paulo, el guía, muy ameno y sabe mucho de muchas cosas... Ursula, nuestra chofer, manejó excelente. Nos sentimos siempre muy seguros. Nos faltó tiempo para recorrer la catedral y la escalera de selarón. Pero el tour muy bueno. Gracias!!!!

  • Paolo was amazing. He took us to Corcovado, a waterfall in Barra, the Porto Maravilha area, lunch in a typical restaurant in downtown, the famous tiled steps, and ended up at the sugar loaf. The tour was never rushed and Paolo had a wealth of insights not only on what we were seeing but also the culture and history. As a professor of Philosophy, he was very well-informed. He even gave my wife and I some gifts that were typical of Brazil! We enjoyed our tour tremendously and highly recommend it.

  • There were four of us, together with our beautiful guide Isabella and driver Marcos, in a very comfortable vehicle. Could not have asked for a better overview of this gorgeous city. We had a wonderful time.

  • Excelente experiencia y servicio. Alejandro y Vinicius muy agradables, simpáticos y con paciencia para los niños. Visitamos la foresta de Tijuca, Catedral, Escalera, Corcovado, Pan de Azucar y Maracaná entramos, sólo estaba considerado pasar por fuera. Almorzamos en Copacabana y nos dieron varios tips de Rio. Totalmente recomendable! Siempre con una sonrisa.

  • This was an unsatisfying tour. We were three people, plus a driver and a guide. We requested a guide as well as a driver, because we were told the guide would be much more informative. First, the car was a small sedan, much too confining for five people, with very poor visibility.. Second, the guide was disorganized and uninformative. In fact, the driver was a better guide than the regular guide. So we paid extra to be over crowded and ill-served. Avoid this tour.

  • We had a fantastic day with our guide. He was very knowledgeable and we will remember the tour for a lifetime.
    Thank you!

  • I just returned from my first trip to Rio de Janeiro. On my first full day in Rio, I did the private full-day sightseeing tour. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour if you have never been to Rio before and want to hit all of the major attractions in one day. The driver and guide picked me up at my hotel around 9:00 a.m. and took me all around the city. We visited the Tijuca Forest, Corcovado i.e. Christ Redeemer statue, Maracnha stadium, the Sambodrome, the Cathedral, Cinelandia, and for sunset viewing Pao de Acucar Sugar Loaf Mountain. I wanted to have Brazilian food for lunch, and the guide took me to a buffet style restaurant in Ipanema that was not too expensive, but had a variety of options. After completing this tour, which lasted about 9.5 hours, I felt like I had a much better understanding of the city and all of the major landmarks. The guide and driver were very friendly and knowledgable. Again I reiterate that this tour is definitely worth the money.

  • We had such a terrific day with Patricia and our driver Bernardo! It was so refreshing to tour Rio de Janeiro with two people who were born and raised there. They know all the hidden gems of the city, and told us the history and culture of Rio and Brazil. The weather was very bad the day of our tour, and we weren't able to go to Sugarloaf or Christ the Redeemer. However, Patricia and Bernardo suggested additional sights for us to see, to ensure we still had a full day tour. They also showed us where Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer were, so we could visit on our own once the weather cleared up later during our vacation. We ended our tour feeling like we spent the day with good friends! They are simply the best!

  • Anderson was a fantastic tour guide. He was patient and very flexible with the itinerary. I highly recommend the tour.

  • This was a wonderful tour, allowing us to hit all of the major landmarks in Rio in just a day. We were picked up at our hotel and visited Praia do Pepino, the new Cathedral, the soccer stadium, Tijuca Forest, Santa Teresa, Christ the Redeemer, and Sugarloaf mountain. We were allowed to customize the tour, and our guide Patricia was very informative. I strongly recommend this tour to orient you to Rio, or if you have only limited time in the city.
