  • This tour was listed as a 9 hour tour however our tour guide and driver thought it was suppose to be a 6 hour tour. That is what we got. We were picked up at the port and got the immediate idea this might be a new tour guide . The only info given to us about surroundings was promoted by our driver who spoke better English than our guide. This was the day before carnival began so we did expect not to see as much as any other time of year. We saw the Christ the redeemer statue and sugar loaf. Both attractions our guide had to ask where to go and how to enter as if she hadn't been there. She even had tourists take her picture at the two attractions. We had a fast lunch at Burger King. That was it. Today another passenger on the ship said they did in fact have a 9 hour tour and went to coppacabana beach, other locations as well as everywhere we went. Our guides were certainly not experienced as we would have expected through viator for a private tour.

  • The tour guide was excellent and took great pride in his country and showed us what we wanted to see.

  • Our guide Luciana was fabulous. We had bad weather but that did not stop us at all.

  • Excellent day with excellent guide and driver

  • 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.
