Overview

Take your Rio de Janeiro sightseeing experience into your own hands on this customizable, private tour of the Marvelous City. Alongside a ‘carioca’ (Rio de Janeiro resident) and personal driver, tick off top Rio attractions chosen by you. Personalize your itinerary according to your interests and only visit the sites you wish to see: your guide tailors the tour according to preferred themes, such as food, history, or sport, and offers undivided attention throughout. Pickup and drop-off from your Rio de Janeiro hotel are included.
  • Private custom sightseeing tour of Rio de Janeiro
  • Create an itinerary featuring only sites of interest
  • Tailor your tour according to themes such as food, sport, history, or culture
  • Choose to visit top attractions including Sugar Loaf Mountain and the Statue of Christ the Redeemer
  • Receive undivided attention from a private guide and driver
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off are included
Prior to your tour, your guide contacts you to discuss an itinerary. Whether you want to explore Rio’s traditional food joints, tick off all of the city’s top attractions, or stray from the beaten path to gain local insight, your drive and guide can make it happen.

Choose to visit the iconic Statue of Christ the Redeemer, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, or take a cable car ride to the summit of Sugar Loaf Mountain. Opt to recline on the white-sand beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, both world-famous Rio spots, or check off landmarks including Sao Bento Monastery, Maracana Stadium, and the Sambadrome, which hosts the renowned Rio Carnival. All entrance fees are at your own expense.

Your tour concludes with drop-off at your Rio de Janeiro hotel.

Superb Rio Tour Operation 2020

We really lucked into a great vendor in Efraim, and his go-to tour team of Flavio (great driver) and Katia (great tour guide)! It was effortless via Viator, and Efraim's communication, suggestions and coordination were flawless. Efraim and Katia did an excellent job of merging our "wish-list" compilation with the "don't miss" venues. Katia was superb: punctual, considerate, effusive, and a pleasure to spend time with. My wife and I loved all the walking, nature, neighborhoods, architecture, vistas, cool sights, museums, and cultural highlights that Rio is famous for! Thanks to Katia, we had the most complete experience possible. By the way, we were coming off a cruise and our one need was to have our luggage accompany us (safe/securely) throughout the day until airport drop-off at the end. Thank you, Efraim, Katia, and Flavio, for delivering a great private tour at our pace and insuring that we had nothing but a great time. Can't wait to return to do more with you! Cheers! Scott & Shani

Our guide, Victoria, was wonderful. (Driver too). She was very friendly and knowledgeable. Saw Christ, the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf, cathedral, the steps.... and more. She arranged everything so well that we had minimal waits at any attraction. We were exceptionally pleased with this tour.
