This was perfect tour for us, a group of 5 people Note that the price reflects group price. We wanted short city tour with more time at Sugarloaf including Sunset. The owner/Guide accommodated our request. The pickup was on time. That day it was very hot in Rio. Vehicle was very comfortable and clean. The city tour included whatever we wanted to see in city and some of the must see attractions, recommended by owner/guide. Guide was English speaking and knowledgeable.
