What You Can Expect
This was an excellent way to see Rio - tour guide spoke excellent English and gave more information that just a textbook speech. He made suggestions of things we might want to see and knew all the head of the line shortcuts to see everything with very little waiting in line. Truly made us feel like VIPs.
Our tour guide, Igor, was terrific, knowledgeable and at a nice pace with my group of seniors.
We had a great time.
Our guide, Fatima, was wonderful and did a great job showing us the highlights of Rio in one day. She was knowledgeable and had an excellent command of English. This was a perfect way to see the city with the limited time we had available.
A lovely, carefully planned tour by a bright and interesting guide!
Super experience and our guide was perfectly suited for a custom tour. We were able to eat an authentically local breakfast before arriving at Corcovado and were dropped off for a delicious chiurasco lunch when the tour ended. The four hours was adequate for all of our purposes. We were 9 people total and had a full-sized, comfortable coach that added a lot of extra comfort.
My husband and I were only in Rio for one day and wanted to make the best of it so we decided to do a Half-day Private Tour. We were picked up at our hotel at 8am sharp and off we went. It was a beautiful day so we went to see Christ the Redeemer first. Our guide, Fatima, was awesome! She was knowledgeable, interesting and spoke very good English. She knew the ins and outs of getting around Rio. We also visited Santa Teresa (Unfortunately it was Monday and many things were closed). She then took us places we did not know anything about! We loved our time with Fatima! We would definitely booked this tour again when in Rio!
We booked a private 6-hour tour of Rio. We had an amazing experience. Our guide Igor was great - he told us about the history of Brazil and Rio. He took us to all the sights we requested to see trying to find the best times for visiting these sites. We also spent some time going throught the Tajuca forest and his knowledge of the local fauna really amazed us.
Thank you, Igor for the tour of Rio on Jan 4, 2015
Nice tour,, we had a great time . Great way to see Rio
Excellent trip, tour was as described, guide was excellent and very informative about the places visited. Although the Private Tour is obviously more expensive would recommend it (over a larger group tour) as we were able to move around at our pace. Given the amount of queuing involved for train (to ascend Corcovado) and the cable car (at Sugar Loaf) I could imagine a lot of time being wasted waiting for a large group to organise itself at the various locations.
Our customized Rio de Janeiro sightseeing tour was excellent!! Our driver and tour guide, Carla de Silva, arrived at our hotel promptly and took us up to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain, narrating along the way. We then toured the city, stopping at the Sambodromo stadium, visiting the cathedral, stopping by the Maracana soccer stadium, and visiting the Monestary Sao Bento, where we listened to the chanting by the monks. They then dropped us off right at our ship, making sure we were settled in line. Carla did an outstanding job of taking care of us and showing us the beautiful sights of Rio. We would certainly recommend Carla and Viator to friends and clients.
