Tour completo per chi desidera vedere il più possibile con un solo giorno a disposizione. Scesi dalla nave, all'uscita del porto abbiamo trovato ad accoglierci il sig. Aldo (a cui va il nostro caloroso ringraziamento) che ci ha accompagnati in taxi a raggiungere gli altri partecipanti al tour e nel tragitto ci ha dato, in italiano, molte notizie ed informazioni utili. In mattinata siamo stati condotti al Pan di Zucchero e alla Cattedrale con guida parlante anche italiano e ci è stata fornita anche audioguida. Dopo il pranzo (incluso) siamo stati aggregati ad altro tour per recarci al Corcovado e alla scalinata Selaron (purtroppo in questa seconda parte la guida parlava in inglese, pur comprendendo l'italiano) e poi di lì un taxi, chiamato dalla guida, ci ha ricondotti vicino al porto. Qualche pecca organizzativa nel tour pomeridiano e nel riaccompagnamento al porto (il taxista non è stato in grado di riaccompagnarci al porto, ma ci ha lasciati nelle vicinanze).

Unfortunately we have not visited the Maracana stadium or the Selaron staircase, although according to GetYourGuide this would be included. The price is incredibly expensive. Better to do everything on your own and save at least 50%.

Great in the morning, hop in the afternoon

Thanks to the great tour guide, we really enjoyed the morning and the lunch was good. Then the disillusionment. The combination of the two half-day tours (morning and afternoon tour) had a very unfavorable effect. There were significant delays in the process. But the worst part was the tour guide. He looked disorganized, hectic and unable to cope with the group. Only after a clear request were explanations given outside the bus in English. So far we have only had good experiences with the tour guides of the tours booked through GYG. This gentleman is not worthy of GYG. Unfortunately I don't remember the name anymore, but I can tell that for sure. When grading: five stars in the morning, two in the afternoon
