What people are saying about Rio de Janeiro

Brilliant worthy respectful tour that contributes to the community

Our tour guide was amazing, passionate and highly informative about everything and anything we asked about the community we were experiencing in Santa marta. Unfortunately I can't recall his name to give him full credit..but I'm glad this tour was the exactly what I anticipated in terms of it being an insightful tour and not disrespectful to the community we were trying to learn about. There's plenty of opportunity during the trip to get a snack, light refreshment and or relieve yourself if need. The spots along the tour appropriate for taking photos are very good too. I felt very comfortable in the hands of our tour guide and left the tour feeling enriched with understanding of the position of the communities who exist in these mountain side homes.

Favela Santa Marta Tour with a Local Guide Reviewed by Anonymous, 06/07/2019

Very well organized and excellent guided by Sergio!

Originally we had only bought and planned to visit Cristo Redentor and the Sugarloaf mountain. However the weather was not the best to get the most out of those 2 and the guide suggested we started with a tour in the city, I e the Selaron Steps, Maracanã Stadium and some churches/cathedral- very very nice! We had not booked this, it was very easy to adjust the booking and the planning of the day. The guide, Sergio, was very informative the full day and together with the driver they planned the day excellent, adjusted the activities to the weather and we got the best views and very smooth passes in the lines to all activities the full day. Can really recommend the tour as well as the guide, Sergio!

A very informative guide and scenic competent driver for the tour

Pedro(the guide) got his message across in English clearly and understandably, while Alvis(the driver) negotiated the frightening ascent/descent to Christ The Redeemer expertly. I will do the same tour again with the duo if/when I come back to Rio. The particular City tour was money well spent. Dr. Toks Abiose.

Amazing visit if Rocinha with our guide Wellington.

Our visit of Rocinha has been amazing. We learnt so many things about favelas that we did not know about. Loved the way our guide Wellington showed us around Giving us the best insight. I would recommend this activity to everyone!

the best option to get to know the city in one day

Pick up just in time, excellent driver, a knowledge, funny and kind guide (renata) who speaks 3 languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese), the best places of the city to visit in one day, enough time in every touristic place.
