Great time with Renaldo!
Darla_B, Jan 2023
This tour was amazing! Renaldo was absolutely wonderful! The places we went were great, especially Christ the Redeemer. Such a spiritual experience, along with hundreds of other people! Ha! The van was very comfortable and roomy! Highly recommend!
Amazing tour of Rio!
Patrick_J, Jan 2023
Amazing tour! We had a great guide and bus driver! This tour allows you to see all the major highlights of Rio in one day! The tour does last about 11 hours from start to finish so keep that in mind. My favorites on this tour were Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain, but plan on long queues to get to see these two attractions - they are worth the wait! Lunch was good as well. 5 stars!!!
Great tour!

Our tour guide Gustavo was fantastic! He was able to communicate with our whole group in 3 different languages and was very attentive throughout the tour. And the barbecue lunch was very good as well!

Christ and Sugarloaf panaramas
Alan_M, Jan 2023
Went above the clouds to clear view of Christ. Drive about town was informative. Lunch was delicious with abundant salad bar and many types of meat. Cathedral with stain glass windows is beautiful. Homeless Jesus sleeping on bench very moving emotionally.
Great tour

The tour guide, Renato Marino, was excellent; very knowledgeable and fluent in English. The tour took us to a number of key attractions. At each location we were given time sufficient time to “explore”.

DeOnte_C, Jan 2023
Trip was as advertised! Great experience with our tour guide Renata! Would recommend to others. Only wish, is that we had more time for the other excursions.
More of a hop on hop off experience.
Shiva_P, Jan 2023
It was more of a hop on hop off experience. Didn’t get much out of the tour in regards to information and history of the city. Our tour guide ran the tour in two languages and that wasn’t helpful.
Good tour but needs improvement
Paula_G, Jan 2023
The tour was very well organized but the guide was not as expected. There was very little narrative or detail provided about the places we visited or drove by. It was a beautiful tour but very uninformative.
Good Tour
rudolph_T, Jan 2023

Lisa_O, Dec 2022
It was pouring rain so a bit challenging and uncomfortable; however, our guide, Leandro, managed the weather challenges and provided a great tour!
Must do when visiting Rio!!!
Ariel_i, Dec 2022
This is a must do tour when visiting Rio. My son and I had this experience yesterday and it was worth it! Our tour guide Priscilla and our driver did an excellent job to make our tour productive and given us enough time to tour around and take pictures. I highly recommended it. Just a reminder to give tips to the tour guide as some people forget it-it is just one way to show that they are appreciated.
