Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
we had problems getting picked up in the morning and eventually had to get a taxi to "catch up to them". we caught up and really had only missed the picking up of guest from all the different hotels ...so no harm really. the "morning part" of the tour sugar loaf was nice, but after that we started the drop off process of the people that were not going to continue to the "afternoon part". so what this tour is is the morning and the afternoon just put together. so you end up driving to hotels for pick up and drop off a lot.
lunch was good, a local steak house. put the help at the restaurant was VERY confused and it took a long time to get the food and to the right people. but they had AC so it was nice to get in for a bit. FYI, all drinks even water are NOT included. we had 3 cokes and 2 waters and it was $R27.
after lunch we headed with a new guide to the "afternoon" part of the tour. during the second part of the tour a few of us questioned wheather or not we (on a cruise ship) would have to go to all the hotels to drop everyone off, about 1.5 hours worth of driving or could we be taken straight to the ship. in the end they said they would get a bus and take us to the ship. so that was nice. would i do this tour again...no. would i go back to the sights, yes. after we got off the ship and checked into our hotel all of these tours were offered by our hotel and at a cheaper price. dont get me wrong i love viator and use them all the time this was a local tour hiccup. its alot of driving around. get a taxi for the day and do this on your on. it could be done very easily.
great "HOHO" day
