The tour was great!
I was up very early thinking that my pick up time will be at 7am, when i reconfirmed at 7:30am, they said it'll be around 8:30am. Good thing Copacabana have a lot to offer. i went to the beach and enjoyed the sand while killing the time. and 15 minutes before my pick up time, i was at the front of my hotel waiting, and the bus arrived on time.
We had fun during the tour. I love that we have a videographer, at an extra cost, who did filmed us while were having fun on the whole duration of the tour.
Our guide Fatima was very knowledgeable, though there are some re-routing in the city center yet she managed to give us insights on the place.
Sugar loaf was amazing, we're in medium size group but she managed to take care of us.
Highly recommended!
