What people are saying about Rio de Janeiro

Very well organised with a great enthusiastic and helpful guide

This was a really excellent day out. It was so well organised with great communication on meeting times and schedule. Plus it never felt rushed. Chi Chi was such a entertaining fun guide. Her enthusiasm and 'ooh la la' attitude was infectious and she gave some interesting background and history on the places we visited from the Petropolis palace to the former casino. Petropolis palace is an elegant residence set within a lovely old town, with all the old architecture it's a nice contrast to the modern bustling Rio. We had a buffet meal and it offered great choice of items to select and great value. We were given the option to explore the shops or go to the Beer factory. I chose the latter and it was a nice relaxing end to the day, with a few tastings included. Not forgetting a fabulous group of friendly people to spend the day with.

Excellent tour, amazing guide, highly recommended!

The tour guide was very nice, humble and informative and the driver was also a helpful and kind. It was a great trip to take in the main sights and spent enough time in each spots. She was the best guide ever. If you wish to see the main attractions in relatively short time (almost a day) choose this tour!

Mandatory excursion for someone with a limited time in Rio

There was some confusion picking people up in the morning but other than that things ran very smoothly. We got to see all the key tourist stops in a day, I felt like we definitely had the right amount of time in each zone. Would recommend to anyone with only a few days to see the sights.

Downtown and the wharf worth it. Cafe nice but closed.

Be careful booking around holidays as places will be closed. Cafe closed but guide was wonderful and went out of his way to accommodate and took us to see other things. Wharf, downtown and cafeteria totally worth it. Museum long wait and very disappointing

Good day , guide was very informative on lots of topics

All in all a good packed day guide was well equipped to answer any question on any topic transport was comfy , lunch was good , thou we did think it was included in the price maybe should be clearer in the brochure
