What people are saying about Rio de Janeiro

felt a bit rushed, not much time to explore sightings

itinerary looks good, but most places (except sambodromo and maracana) were crowded. so not enough time to walk around and see everything. especially on Christ, were so many people, terrible. guide gave us only 30 min, had to go up the stairs, make ur way through hundreds of people trying take selfie, photos etc, and try to have a look around, beautiful panoramic views, and then walk back down. too rushed! there was option for elevator but line for it was going to take 30 min anyways. sugaloaf was good. a bit disappointed about maracana, got to see only main entrance with statue of the team capitain and then drive around in the van, basically didnt see anything. i was expecting we will be able go inside and see ourselves how massive it is inside, but didnt happen. cathedral was good. sambodromo interesting to see, lunch was great at traditional churascaria, choice of food/meat was great. selaron steps again too crowded and didnt had enought time to go all the way up the stairs to see

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.

Petrópolis: Imperial City Tour Reviewed by Simon, 27/09/2019

Absolutely exceeded expectations - 10 out of 10

This trip was far better than we could have imagined and included far more on the itinerary than stated in the tour description including the Metropolitan Cathedral of Rio which was stunning. The guide Bruno was 1st class and we couldn’t have asked for a better guide, he was probable, knowledgable and all round good fun and company to be around. He made the trip so interesting and was by far the best guide we encountered on our entire trip to Rio. The lunch was absolutely amazing too. I loved this tour, it made our trip and was essentially all of Rio’s highlights in 1 very well organised trip. Highly recommend

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.
