Lovely day tour to see the main sites. Went to Escardia Selaron first and we were the first tourists there so plenty of opportunity to take fabulous photos and marvel at the mosaic artwork. Next to Christ the Redeemer, was very busy but a great experience and finally to Sugarloaf Mountain which was just lovely. Bit confusing about whether the meal was included, we all thought it was, it actually wasn't so just be aware of that, but didn't spoil the experience with a great tour guide who was very informative, helpful and friendly. Overall a highly recommended tour.

We traveled to Brazil on a Wim during these unfortunate times and everything was planned last minute. Our hotel set this tour up for us and we just expected to go see Christ and sugar loaf. However, due to the ongoing situation and the weather it ended up being only us two on this tour. I have been on many tours around the world, never a private tour though. This was beyond expectation. I was planning on renting a car and driving around, but no need as we got all of that out of the way with our tour guides. Wanderlei was absolutely amazing and should I say had much knowledge about the history of Rio which was very interesting. Driving around yourself you wouldn’t know half the things you passed by, but Wanderlei made sure to point out everything! Wanderlei aka Luis, spoke English very well and was an amazing photographer. He was so kind to take soooo many pictures everywhere we stopped. I’m not sure they could have sent us a better tour guide! Also, Marco the driver was absolutely amazing! Just so accommodating! Never made us wait, ALWAYS opened the doors for us, carried an umbrella when it rained, and lastly was very kind and always ensuring we were enjoying our time. I could go on and on but I think I have made my point. If you could, get a private tour, you won’t regret it! By far the best tour experience I have had. After all, it’s not always about the places you go see, it’s also about the company your with that makes it much more enjoyable. B&L

Fantastic trip, well worth the money. This trip is a must if visiting Rio de Janeiro, especially if you get Louis the tour guide. Louis has a vast knowledge and explai a everything well. He looks after you the entire trip. Louis is by far the best tour guide I have met throughout my travels over the years.
Thank you for a fantastic day Louis.

Good way to see the top attractions in a half day so you can also enjoy the beach in the afternoon. Our guide and driver got us to Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf as expected, however we were told at the end of the tour, only after asking, that the Selaron Steps would not be included due to road closures. We understand that it was out of their control, but it was disappointing since we had paid for 3 attractions.

Dear 651aimeeh, Thank you for your review. Unfortunately leading up and during Carnival there might be some strees closure that really prevent us from getting to the Selaron Steps. We apologize that was the case, but do know that all attractions with tickets included were visited. We hope to see you again in future visits. Thank you,

We did the tour with a relatively small group which was very nice. Joe was our tour guide. Had a great day. We had plenty of time a the different stops. Joe was friendly, explained it all really well. So we enjoyed it! And as a tip, we were the only ones going for the lunch option. Too bad for the other ones. Because even though the lunch is at the end of the tour (which came as a surprise), it was very, very nice!

We were the first tourist Gus had since the borders closed and he was absolutely amazing! Gus was attentive, accommodating, spoke perfect English, even as he interacted with other Employees at the different attractions he just lit up the room. Looking forward to my next visit and will definitely use Gus again!!

They didn't promote it, but I think the afternoon tour is a more exceptional experience, as you can see the Christ in the day time and have the view of Rio from the Sugar Loaf at night -- very different scenes and it's worth checking out!

Overall the tour is beyond expectation, Henrique is a really nice guide and he speaks both English and Spanish very well! The driver was friendly as well and dropped me and other guests off at the dinner locations we requested. Thank you and I'll definitely recommend this tour to first-timers who visit Rio.
