Wonderful tour around the city, both...

Wonderful tour around the city, both the driver and guide spoke great english. You get to see a lot in a short time and catered to your pace! Me and my partner didn't want to have lunch and just wanted to keep exploring, and we go to the christ redeemer early, no lines and easy to get great pics without a zillion people in it! Both driver and guide were very friendly and courteous. Recommended for anyone who wants to see in a short time, it was me and my partners first trip and was wary of tours in rio, but this one has put my mind at ease. Would 200 book with these guys again!! Love Adam and Nadia

My partner and I did a private tour with Pedro. He was a great guide and a really nice guy. It was enjoyable to spend the day with him. He and Paolo our driver, but also the co-owner of his own tour business that works through Viator allowed us to cover a lot of ground in one day. They knew the right times of day to visit everything to minimize crowds. We saw all the essential Rio sites -- Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf, Lapa, the Cathedral, and many more. We also had a good lunch in a non-touristy restaurant and enjoyed a late-afternoon beer in the trendy neighborhood of Urca. We got to experience a real flavor of the city in a short amount of time. I highly recommend them!

Perfect tour to see the highlights...

Perfect tour to see the highlights of Rio de Janeiro in a short time. Raphael, our guide, was excellent. Very friendly and knowledgable. He takes you to Sugarloaf and Christ the redeemer, but then leaves you time to independently visit these attractions. This was perfect for me as I like to do things at my own pace. But might not be a good fit for people who are looking for a more guided experience. Loved the privacy of the tour, and driving around in an air conditioned car when it's over 100F outside can't be beat. Tour is also customizable, so you can decide which places to visit. Would definitely recommend.
