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

Excellent guided hike with outstanding views

This was a superbly well organised hike. Communication was excellent about pick-ups, drop-offs, times, itinerary etc. Lead by Felipe and Alex (two enthusiastic guides), the hike was fun and they gave interesting points about the diverse wildlife and forestry habitat as we walked. There was a wide variety of trees, plants and landscape features to see, including waterfalls and a cave with the highlight being a view from the top of the surrounding west side of Rio de Janeiro. Some parts of the climb were fairly strenuous as there were stretches were the gradient was steep and it required careful footing. But nevertheless every part of the walk felt safe. It was great having the opportunity to take a lesser traversed trail past the walls of old coffee farms. A remarkable unforgettable day in the company of a fun welcoming pair of guides and group. I highly recommend it, if you wish to see the landscape around Rio and take in some breathtaking views.

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

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!

Excellent hike which offers spectacular views of the city.

Great value for money trek which offers amazing views across the national park and the city. The second part of the tour takes place off a less well used track which is great as the jungle was more intense. My only recommendation is that the guide should alert people to the steep inclines in several places before the walk and recommend walking aides.
