A perfect day in Rio !! With Patricia and "the driver", unfortunately I forgot the name, we had one of the most beautiful days. We came to Rio with the desire to see as much as possible. Our wish was fulfilled and even exceeded. We were very skeptical about Rio but "Pat" opened our eyes and took away all fear and prejudice. We had great tours! We got great background information about the history of the individual points in Rio. The whole day was perfect. The crowning glory was the spontaneous helicopter flight started by "Sugar Love" I can only recommend Pat !!! We emphasized several times today WE WILL COME AGAIN and do another tour with Pat !!! We have never had such a great, perfectly organized tour guide! We will be back !!! Thanks Pat

This was an excellent way to see the sights and still get some extra time in the day. Priscilla was a delight and so helpful when my partner was unwell. She checked on us lots and enjoyed sharing her experiences of Rio and all the beautiful history. Thank you!

It is an excellent option, for those who want to save time, to visit each place on their own. Special mention to Maurizi, that man is a wonder of a good person. A very good grandfather who with all the patience develops the walk.

Vincente was a great guide and very helpful in general. Saw a lot in a short amount of time. Tour is highly recommended.

Very complete, good attention, very friendly both the Maurizi guide and the Gleison driver. I recommend them.
