Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour was absolutely amazing. It started late, as our original tour guide never showed up. After placing a phone call to the central agency proving the tour, we were very shortly picked up by car and driven to Santa Teresa, where we were met by Raquel, our new tour guide. Raquel was very knowledgeable about the area, living there herself. We felt safe and we toured every little area of Santa Teresa with her. We even had time to stop at souvenir shops and pick up alot of local artisan stuff. Overall a great experience. We ended the tour with a subway ride back to our hotel, followed by a very nice lunch with a lady we met during the tour. Great job!!!

My Review

The tour itself was very good. We were able to see plenty of the city's landmarks in a days worth. Our guide Ana, was very knowledgeable. Speaking five languages at the same time for everyone on the tour. That got a bit confusing after a while, since she had a lot of say, but kinda understandable. The lunch restaurant was surprisingly very good. Right in Ipanema, very well located. After lunch, we explored the neighborhood before being picked up for the second part of the tour.

The only thing we were very disappointed with was the DVD they will offer you on the tour for R$100. They tape you throughout the whole tour, so we expected to be in the DVD. There was not one shot of us in there, or of any one on our tour whatsoever, so pretty much a SCAM. DO NOT BUY THE DVD. I will contact the company about this, but I am sure they pull this on everyone I suppose, and since we paid cash, I doubt we will ever see our money back.

Overall recommend taking this tour. Worth the money paid, except for the DVD.
