Plataforma Samba Show in Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Exceeded expectations all around. Theater was old in a charming way. Show was extraordinary with both dancing and cool feats from five guys who could do some incredibly strong and fast dance-tricks that wow'ed the audience. There were also a few variety acts to round off the show which were entertaining as well. Based on some folks negative comments about the theater I wasn't sure if my wife and I should go or not, but omg thanks goodness we went else we would have missed out a super important facet of the brazilian culture and in a way our trip would not have been complete.

Corcovado Mountain, Christ Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain Day Tour

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

5 stars to Viator and 4 stars to the weather. Viator did a fabulous job getting us from from place to place, skipping lines at every point, and giving us ample time at each location to really take it in. However towards the end of the trip as we got to Christ The Redeemer, the clouds moved it thus giving us zero visibility of the harbor. That was sad. But we got to see Christ The Redeemer (even as the clouds covering him suddenly move on which drew a gasp of excitement from the crowd) which was fantastic. The views from the cable car and Sugar Loaf Mountain were out of this world and among the most beautiful sights I ever saw in my life. The views from Corcovado Mountain would have been pretty insane too if only the clouds werent there. Regardless, no trip to Rio would be complete without this activity so DO IT!

Guanabara Bay Cruise with Optional Seafood Lunch

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A nice really long and relaxing cruise with great views of the rio harbor from every way possible. I half expected them to head back after we got to see some great sights but they kept going till we got to see the whole harbor in one big circle past the important areas. Following the trip we were taken back to Copacabana for a buffet lunch which proved to be AMAZING. We started off with a grand buffet with tons of fresh food options including sushi and if that wasnt enough, to complete a Brazilian steakhouse experience guys would keep going around with different types of meat that they would slice off onto your plate. Worth doing.

Machu Picchu Day Trip from Cusco

Cusco, Peru

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We visited Peru, Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil with tons of memorable experiences. What was the best? The trip to Machu Picchu. Incredibly beautiful, amazing, historic, and really well organized by Viator. A must do for everyone. Only caution is to be prepared for the altitude by spending a day or two in Cuzco and drinking tons of water and cacao tea, and finally being fit to walk a bunch if you want to see all that Machu Picchu has to offer. Even if you dont have the energy to walk everywhere, just making it to the place and seeing what little you can or want to, is worth it. BTW if you can, hike over to the Inca bridge which is at the tail end of the trip, cause it's worth it.

Cusco City Sightseeing Tour

Cusco, Peru

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Knowing that we would go to Machu Picchu the next day, I wasnt sure how impressive a city tour of Cusco would be. Little did I know how incredibly beautiful Cusco is. Nestled in the mountains, with charming buildings and cobbled streets, its one of the coolest places we've visited. And the sightseeing tour gave us a chance to see it in all its glory. The churches were fantastic as well. Our tour guide was really good and memorable and we liked him a lot.
