A great tour with a great guide
Carl_M, Nov 2022
Daniel picked us up at our hotel at 8am, right on time. We talked about what we would like to see and agreed on an agenda, namely that we would like to visit Christ the Redeemer, the top of Sugarloaf, the Selaron steps, and maybe visit the botanical garden. Daniel recommended going to Cristo Redentor first since it gets very busy later in the day. We drove across town in Daniel's car which was clean and comfortable. Daniel speaks English very well, we never had a problem communicating. I felt like we were spending the day with a friend showing us around. Daniel dropped us off at the tram to the top of Corcovado, told us to buy tickets, and wait for him to rejoin us. Since my wife is somewhat mobility impaired, Daniel spoke to the attendants and got us on the tram first. Daniel is a wealth of information. He told us all about Christ the Redeemer and showed us the best spots to get good photos. The next stop was Sugarloaf. Again, he dropped us off, parked the car, and rejoined us. After we bought the tickets he showed us where to go to get priority boarding for handicapped people. We had a coffee at the top of Sugarloaf and talked for several minutes. It was enjoyable to just talk with Daniel. On the way to the Selaron stairs we stopped for lunch at a nice restaurant. The food was excellent and the cost was very reasonable. The Selaron steps were as spectacular as we had hoped. By this time it was after 2 in the afternoon. We decided that we were worn out and that we could skip the botanical gardens. Daniel was quite willing to continue the tour, but we were done. We enjoyed seeing the major attractions of Rio de Janeiro very much, but we enjoyed even more meeting Daniel and spending time with him. If, when, we go back to Rio, we will ask Daniel to guide us again. We like the pleasure of his company.

A true immersion into the sights and culture of Rio. A cool, immaculate, private car to whisk you to the best locations. Gus is an experienced guide and historian. The tour was adaptable and never felt rushed or contrived. Excellent tour!

Thank you so much for the review. It was a pleasure to show you around
Best tour guide I've ever had!!!

I'm not sure how our trip would have been without Gus he is fluent and perfect in both English and Portuguese. Almost no one here spoke English so he communicated for us from the tours, payment when we didn't have the currency, and helping us order or find items we needed like sunscreen and glasses!!! He took us everywhere we wanted, had great suggestions, and even helped us set up the covid test for our trip back!!! He was truly a lifesaver and I would recommend him to any and everyone!!!
