The guide was friendly, but he did not give much in the way of history, made it more about social commentary. The guide spent a lot of time taking us to two stores so that we could buy things. I assume that Viator or the guide has some kind of kick-back deal for taking tourists to the stores (one was a semi-precious stone store, and the other sold T-shirts and tourist knick-knacks). Because the pickups were slow and so much time was wasted in the stores, there was less time to visit the historic sites, and then they even didn't show everything that was supposed to be on the tour! Largely a waste of time and money.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly and impressively spoke several languages well. The tour ran punctually and was well-organized. The guide described important points in Rio, in addition to the Corcovado Mountain. Excellent!
