Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our tour of Rio included a trip up the cable car to Sugar Loaf and a visit by train up to the Christ statue. Our very informative and friendly guide , Flavio, gave us lots of historical information and fun facts about the two sights as well as pointing out the beaches and famous places along the way. He helped us get our many suitcases to our cruise port and made our morning interesting and stress free! Many thanks Flavio! John and Margaret

Flavio Was a fantastic driver and guide. He was very knowledgeable and very patient with us.
Even the weather wasn't perfect but he made it a good day for us. I would highly recommend him to any. One that wants to really see rio de janeiro.

We had an outstanding private tour with Flavio that allowed to discover the wonderful city of Petropolis. Everyone stays and concentrates in Rio but this a great trip into the mountains outside the city and well worth your time.

This is the imperial city and Emporer Pedro 2 and Theresa ruled from here ! On the scenic drive (1 hr) up the mountains Flavio explained the rich history of Brazil and the imperial family. It is a very nice drive with many picturesque overlooks. After visiting the former casino (huge bavarian style building) Flavio led us personally through the imperial museum and explained all the important exhibits. So much better than just reading place cards.

We then saw the main cathedral de alcantara where the royal family is buried which is excellent gothic architecture and walked through the area seeing the different historic homes and parks. Petropolis is a city made for strolling.

A complete surprise and to me one of the best reasons to see Petropolis was to visit the Santos Dumont home and learn about his life- he was actually the father of aviation (not the Wright Brothers!) and its a fascinating tour through his home.

We had a buffet lunch at a very nice restaurant and saw the crystal palace -

Flavio was passionate about sharing his knowledge and life experiences in Brazil with us - this made the tour so much more enjoyable and the fact that it was a private tour made it more personable.

We give Flavio and the tour of Petropolis an enthusiastic recommendation. Its a special place and you will be really pleased you took the time to visit ...with Flavio !

Many thanks for the review here on TA. We've had indeed great views from the top of Corcovado Mountain (where the Christ is located) and managed to take beautiful pictures. Hope you enjoy the Carnaval in Rio! All the best to you and your wife.

We had a bit of trouble with the staff as they didn't speak english very well. But the tour is good, specially if you do not have much time available. Well organized and nice views. Realtively cheap

This person placed the review in the wrong business. I am the owner and the only person who runs tours in my business. Have total control of who I take and have never taken this tourist with me. Can prove the review is misplaced when he says that he had "trouble with the staff as they didn't speak english very well". That's not the case.

We took this tour 2 weeks ago. The two attractions of course are " must-sees" in Rio. What made the afternoon really special was our guide, Flavio Alvarenga. He is very knowledgeable, speaks excellent English, and stirs up special interest in the attractions, Rio, and Brazil in general. There was an unexpected problem with the traffic near Sugar Loaf, but Flavio navigated the local streets and found a parking space that was close and legal! Because of the expertise, friendliness and enthusiasm of our guide Flavio, this tour was truly the highlight of our stay in Rio. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

We had a great private tour with Flavio. He is knowledgeable and outgoing and will tailor any tour to your interests. Flavio easily ranks as one of the best guides we ever had. I would not book anyone else.
