Bus arrived on time. Our guide Bruno was very clear and informative throughout the tour, taking photos for people / groups etc. We were given just about the right time to explore each of the sights given how much was packed into the day. Lunch was at a Rodizio and was excellent, well above what I expected. Minivan was very clean and videos were played about the next venue as we drove there, as well as Bruno pointing out landmarks as we passed by them. An excellent tour and good value for money.

A very well-run day and a great introduction to Rio. We managed to see everything we wanted, despite having to adapt the schedule due to cloudy weather in the morning. The guide Renato was very friendly and interesting, with perfect English and Portuguese. The lunch was fantastic at an authentic steakhouse next to Copacabana!

Leondre, which i dont know if im spelling right, was a fantastic guide. I'm not one for sitting around for tourist sites but it was the perfect amount of time for me. Not sure how leondre was able to keep up the Energy but he did somehow. It was a great day to me!!

It was a beautiful trip with highlights from Rio. Especially our guide , Renato, made the daytrip very interesting. He told much about Rio and spoke the English language very well.

Great tour and a very good guide who spoke very good English. Unfortunately the weather was against us in the extreme Rainfall but still had a great day out. Friendly group too!
