transport suggestion in Rio


We will b a group of 13 staying in Rio during world cup ' 14 from 25-29 Jun. We will b staying in Metropole Rio hotel in Rua Santo Amaro, 11 - Glória. We will cover the must sees in Rio along with watching the WC match on 25 Jun.

Pls advice what shud b the convenient & cost effective mode of transport for a group of 13 in Rio? How do u recommend to rent a scooty? We r interested in riding scooty. What will b the per day rent & any vendor recommendation? Found 'happy moto' seem to b a convenient vendor as per tripadvisor.

Without doubt, sharing cabs will be the best mean of transportation. However, only 4 people fit a cab, so you'll need four cabs. Anyway, you could get from point A from point B within the South Zone for up to R$ 20, 25 per ride, which I think is quite inexpensive considering that you're sharing the ride. It's pretty easy to hail a cab on the street in Rio, so you won't have problems (within the South Side). Make sure to select cabs with a company name and phone written on the side of the cab. Taxis HAVE TO RIDE ON THE METER (except the "radio taxi" from the airport), so refuse to take a cab asking for a pre-payment. We don't tip cabs, but it's a custom to round values (ex: if the ride is R$ 18.20, expect to pay 18; if it's 17.90, expect to pay R$ 18). From the airport, there are two different taxi services with different prices, so have a look at our airport transportation FAQ for more information.
