Very good tour! Right amount of time in each attraction, free time to visit Santos Dumont house right after lunch; really nice!
A little confusing in the hotel pickup: we stayed 45 minutes in the bus going to other hotels and then we were about three blocks from our hotel again. But no big deal!

A good day trip..but we left Rio a bit late and so I think we did not have as much time in Petropolis as we should have. The visit to the Imperial Museum was not long enough.

This trip was ok, but could have been a lot better. Petropolis itself is beautiful and worth seeing. However, for us, it was not a strictly English tour. Our guide had about 7 Portuguese, 2 Spanish, and then 2 English speakers (us.). Therefore, we didn't get much out of the tour as there wasn't much described due to time issues of having to use 3 languages - and not much in English overall.
We also had a pickup/drop-off way across the city which at night added significantly to the ride home due to traffic.

The tour of the Imperial Museum was done much too fast. The company's guide gave no time to look at things or to ask questions. In addition, he did not leave any time to see the gardens. Considering that it is about a three hour round trip to get there, the half-hour tour of the museum was wholly inadequate.. Stop at the Chocolate Factory on the way up was a waste of time and could have been skipped to leave more time for the museum. I would avoid the company if I ever get to go to Brazil again. Don't pay extra for the Crystal Palace! We didn't and we saw everything there was to see!
