Loved it, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun, the sights we saw were amazing. Strongly recommend it.
We had a great experience with Daniel and we were happy to see so many famous sites in Rio.
Wonderful tour. Great guide. Highlight: visiting the Santa Marta favela and mingling with the residents at a bar watching Brasil v Mexico.
Daniel was very cool dude. very good English and professional. We skipped the line to go to the Christ, he made it that we went up there surprisingly fast. The favela tour was cool too. However, It is a little too pricey, I guess it should be cheaper during times that is not the world cup.
This was an amazing tour, an unforgettable experience. Daniel was a great tour guide, and provided a lot of great info on the city of rio. It's nice that you get a walking tour of those parts of the city, rather than just being drove around on a big tourism bus.
Very informative tour!!! Tour guide Daniel is awesome!!! Highly recommended!!!
The highlight of the tour was Santa Marta. A great way to see a favela while giving back to its community members with the opportunity to purchase local-made crafts and goods. Very safe. Fascinating history of Michael Jackson and celebrity visits to the favela, and friendly and welcoming locals. Our tour guide Daniel was very knowledgeable. The Santa Teresa trolley hasn't run since 2011 so that is a bit misleading. Much of that neighborhood is under construction and not spectacular, but still worth a visit simply for the sight of the spectacular tile staircase, "Escadaria Selaron." Christ the Redeemer also a must-see. Overall, our guide, driver, and tour group were all very friendly and it was a great day.
Daniel is the best tour guide you could get for this combo tour: very knowledgable and straightforward and when weather wasn't helping he was ready with Plan B or C to not let Mother Nature spoil the adventure. Highly recommended.
This was a great tour and I would recommend it to anyone traveling to Rio de Janeiro! We got to see so much in one day. This was the only tour that covered all the highlights of Rio that we really wanted to see. It was an excellent way to get a snapshot of the city and it's culture. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke english well. The tour of the Santa Marta Favela was very interesting so make sure you include this in your tour.
Very professionally organized, very knowledgeable and friendly guide, good pace.
The trip to Santa Marta is really something you ought to do while in Rio, it gives you perspective.
