  • 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.

  • This was the best tour ever.Patricia and her Driver Bernardo were excellent and I recommend highly, just book with them you won and #39;t regret it.They were prompt, funny, and the banter was great.Patricia is a great singer too.You won and #39;t regret your decision just book with them.They are super awesome

  • This tour was awesome and mostly because of Fabiana and her brilliant driver I'm really sorry but I forget his name Rio can be a scary place, even for us and we have been travelling around C and S America for five months. My partner and I decided to go for the private tour and really in the end if there are two or more people why wouldn't you opt for the private tour, its almost the same price as a group tour. Fabiana made us feel to welcome and safe, having the private car/SUV was just the best way to explore. We did everything you could want to do, all the main attractions and always with background and history. Fabiana gave some great perspective about Rio and Brazil in general without ever dwelling too much on the clear imperfections in this amazing country. We explored some ofthe tourist trail stuff too including the forest in between the main attractions. We also went for lunch which was typically Brazillian BBQ, wow the meat was just AMAZING! So all in all a great day well spent, we felt we saw Rio and never worried once about safety or what not! That was all taken care of

  • Absolutely excellent. Sometimes when you book a tour you sort of half close your eyes and hope for the best, in this tour we got the best and so much more. It started with Patricia emailing us to ask what we might be interested in so she could customize our tour. She was totally ok with picking us up at the airport, which was excellent for us and saved money!
    We did SOOOO much - I think everything in Rio! We...
    1. Went to the football stadium
    2. Went to Tijuca rainforest and did a bit of a walking tour, seeing Tournay waterfall, artist's homes, beautiful bathtubs in the middle of the forest, a 150 year-old eucalyptus tree, and then an incredible lookout over the city and beaches.
    3. Walked the beaches of Rio - Sao Conrado, Copacabana, Ipanema, Barra, etc.
    4. Went up Christ the Redeemer
    5. Had lunch at Fogo de Chao
    6. Saw the lagoon
    7. Went to the Selaron steps
    8. Went to the Metropolitan Cathedral
    9. Toured Santa Therese
    10. Went up Sugar Loaf Mountain

    I have been on Viator tours around the world. Some were terrible, some were OK, some were even great. NONE were as good as this one was! Patricia is friendly, funny, incredibly knowledgeable, and totally flexible. She helped us to find the best street market to buy souvenirs so we didn't pay too much for them - that was so helpful! Where we wanted to stop and see things, they stopped and out we got! Want to take a photo? No problem, we'll pull over and you can get out and take as many as you want.
    When we stopped at the lookout on the first day we saw people hang gliding and para gliding. We wanted to do it, so Patricia stopped at the beach and we booked it! You don't get service like that ANYWHERE!!
    Her driver was her cousin, Marcelo, and he was so lovely. Each time we stopped somewhere he would let us out exactly where we needed to be and go park and wait for us - that was fantastic service! Patricia took photos for us each time we wanted one, she was GREAT at selfies, and even showed me an app that can adjust your face in the picture if you forgot to put on makeup and wanted your picture to have a little more 'oomph' to it. I will turn into a model on my Facebook posts soon!
    I can't recommend Patricia highly enough, the best tour we've ever had. If I get a chance to go back to Rio, Patricia and Marcelo will be my exclusive guides every single time.

  • It was very great to explore the city with the knowledgeable, nice and experienced guide Wagner!! If you have limited time in Rio, it's highly recommended to choose this one, you will get an unforgettable memory here!

  • The four of us booked this tour with a driver only. The car is just comfortable with 4 persons and it has a/c. Mr. Shallabi was a very good driver and speaks very good English. He made great suggestions for us to take the shuttle to Cristo instead of the tram. We got there early and had plenty of time to enjoy the site before the crowd moved in. He was prompt, courteous and attentive. We enjoyed a great tour of Rio because of his excellent service.
