Nette Tour … ein wenig zu lang mit ca 13 Stunden, sonst sehr schön

March 14, 2023


Pick up at 07:03 didn’t get out of Rio area until after 09:30 ! Due to picking up at way too many locations around the whole of Rio ! No explanation from the guide ! Do not take this trip if your English ! The tour guide ( it says full commentary in English ! Simply not true ) Guide gave full details and history and other details of places in Portuguese only ! Then came up to us and said “ English?” And gave about a paragraph of detail for the whole day. We stopped at a services for toilet and snacks ! Forget this if you can’t speak Portuguese as no one will help you to order and it’s a free for all chaos as all coaches stop here. When we arrived at the boat it was rammed ! Way too many people of a boat that size Again running commentary in Portuguese and Spanish , about 3 words in English Simply Awful trip
