Our driver Flavio and tour guide Sandra was amazing very knowledgeable, she explained everything and shared some personal experiences of living in Rio. They picked up us from our hotel even it wasn’t on their pick up zone, we’re very lucky it was just me my family for the whole 5hrs tour. Everything was taken care of for us we didn’t have to queue up to get our tickets. She also took some of our photos, She gave us enough time to walked around on our own to enjoy the view around Christ the Redeemer and watch the beautiful sunset by the Sugarloaf, she’s very patient even helped us carry our baby stroller going up on some of the steeps.It was such a pleasant day. Highly recommend this tour. Thank you! Sandra and Flavio.

Sandra was amazing and fun with a terrific sense of humor. She knew so much of the city's history, she was an awesome photographer, and she knew the inside scoop on times to go so we could avoid crowds. We had an incredible time and got some great photos.

Margo, Best Tour Guide Ever

Margo was the best tour guide and English translator that we have ever met. Her extensive knowledge of Rio de Janeiro’s history and landscape matched the beauty of sights. She was polite, responsive and hospitable. Answered any and all questions that we had. We loved our experience and if we ever return to Rio, I will definitely use Margo again. With Love Sean and Desiree

Best time to go with no crowds or lines is during the pandemic!

During the pandemic is the best time ever to do this tour! It was just us in the van and on the tour for the day. There are usually 1 to 2 hour waits with the Christ Redeemer and Sugar Loaf but there was absolutely no line and no wait and there were very few people there which made social distancing very easy and taking pictures. Also our tour guide Vitória was fantastic and she spoke great english which is nice since my wife and children only speak english and her company was quite enjoyable. I highly recommend this over any other options!

Can’t say enough great things about this tour. The driver was both professional and hilarious. Vincent was an excellent tour guide. He was great and educating us on all the history and gave us plenty of time to soak everything in. I had high expectations and these guys exceeded them. Highly recommended!!!

I had expectations and Vincent exceeded them. Eventhough it said small group tour, I didnt realize it was actually a private tour with just my friend and I. The driver was both professional and hilarious. Vincent did a great job educating us about the history and giving us plenty of time to soak in the amazing views. Great value for what we paid and I highly recommend this tour to anybody!

A cloudy day in Rio
Max_W
, Dec 2020
Our tour was on a cloudy day during the pandemic. Temperatures were taken and masks were required at all locations. Additionally, the van we took was driven with all windows open in order to aid in ventilation. There were only 3 of us on the tour (one English speaker and the other two Portuguese). Our tour guide, Kathy, was great. She conducted the tour in dual languages and made it special for all of us. As I was a solo traveler, she offered and was happy to take photos for me. I only give the tour 4 stars as it was cloudy at both Sugar Load and Christ the Redeemer so we didn’t really get the full experience. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!
