Was picked up close to on time we were in hotel lobby and he was outside but found him easy enough. . We got upgraded with a private tour and guide which made getting around the city must easier than a van or bus. Crowded in most spots, Christ the Redeemer and the Steps were the worst! Having private vehicle really help. Igor was very knowledgeable about the city would recommend him for a tour guide

A worthwhile tour

Punctual pick up at the hotel. Extensive explanations by the guide in easy to understand English. Sufficient time at the inspection points. The Maracana Stadium is only visited from the outside. Unfortunately, the half-day group was merged with the full-day group, so the group included nearly 20 people. Overall, a recommended tour!
