What an amazing day!

Had a wonderful day of sightseeing in Rio visiting Sugarloaf, Corcovado and many other sights. Our guide Sandra was so much fun and very knowledgeable about the history of this gorgeous city. This was the highlight of my trip! Obrigada Sandra!

Great city tour!

The view at Christ the Redeemer was beautiful! The additional stops on the tour were varied and gave us a good feel for the city including sports, the arts, and churches. The restaurant and coffee shop were suburb and our guide was knowledgeable, helpful and kind!
More than I expected

I had the pleasure of being Guided by Kiko & Flavio. Kiko driving was the absolute BEST cause all the driver's in Rio are trying to die by accident on purpose for some reason! Kiko was so knowledgeable and patient. He kept reminding me to take my time and even went shopping with me. I absolutely recommend this excursion.

Carmen was absolutely amazing! We enjoyed a full day tour seeing Christ The Redeemer along with Sugar Loaf and a delicious lunch at a Brazilian restaurant.
All day tour of Rio
, Mar 2020
The tour guide was right outside the pier with clear signage as to who they were. Many times when the guide pointed out sights, we could not see them out of the bus. We were confused if lunch was included with the tour. The guide, Sandra, took us to a steak buffet which was $50+ (US) per couple. Many of the patrons were surprised by the cost and opted to go elsewhere on their own. We would have been happy to see the 2 main sights of Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf and the steps. Some of the sights were fillers since a lot were closed during Carnaval.
Full day Rio
, Feb 2020
The tour was nice. The offered time was perfect so we never had to wait at the sightseeing spots. The guide Sergio and the driver Bruno were very nice and helpful.
