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

The activity offers great views and locations, but the best is the great Brazilian hospitality.
