What people are saying about Rio de Janeiro (State)

A great experience in what one newspaper describes as one of the top ten bars in the world. The atmosphere was great, music good and food and drink served well and were excellent My only criticism was that we were there far too early. It does not open until 8pm and we were picked up far too soon and so had to stand around waiting for it to open

A unique place, the musicians and the unique place, three floors with incredible ancient collections! To listen to good music, dance and vibrate in the heart of Rio! Maurilho our driver was very attentive, he waited for us to be seated at one of the best tables and he came to pick us up at the agreed time, wonderful!

This was a great way to spend an evening in Rio. Despite a short menu we really enjoyed the food and the free flowing drinks were very enjoyed. Transport was smooth and our driver was helpful and friendly. Would recommend.

Top group, lots of fun, very committed and very nice :) thanks Max, for the recommendation for the fish restaurant in Lapa, went there 3 times in a row :) greetings Michael and Theresa from Germany.

Our guide dropped us off at the club and picked us up at the specified time and the time at the club was great! We had a wonderful dinner and night of dancing.
