This was the best tour we have taken and so worth the price. Our guide Leonardo was fantastic, providing information in English, Portuguese and Spanish (I think-I only understood the English!). He was knowledgeable, kind, helpful. The lunch was better than our meal the night before at a much more expensive restaurant. Driving would have been a bit harrowing had we attempted this with a rental car, well, more than a bit, and we never would have been able to see all these sights in one day.

Foi tudo maravilhoso! Desde a pontualidade do pick up até o momento que nós deixaram no hotel. O guia Bruno foi incrível! O passeio foi todo falado em três línguas, o que facilitou meu marido entender. Amamos e sem duvidas recomendamos o passeio!

Everyone was really great ! Friendly , made sure the whole group was together. Knew a lot of history . Also was really good with Communicating and updates all the way to the day of the excursion . I highly recommend this tour group .

you know it will be cool, but TRUST ME it will exceed your expectations. it was the most utterly breathtaking experience.

It was a great experience, the guide was terrific. A Must if you are in Rio
