Our guide Wagner was absolutely brilliant with English language and the local knowledge. We had a fabulous time including the kids.

We had an interesting day with Rafael. We did see the highlights of Rio, and the van and driver were always there to transport us. However,there were a few things that we were surprised with. We said that we wanted to go to a restaurant for lunch. Rafael had already booked the venue. However, it was VERY expensive. We feel that we should have been asked how much we wanted to spend before entering the restaurant. The food was good, but at 130 a couple for lunch the price was steep. Our guide should also be advised to improve his personal grooming - clean clothes are appropriate.

This tour was listed as a 9 hour tour however our tour guide and driver thought it was suppose to be a 6 hour tour. That is what we got. We were picked up at the port and got the immediate idea this might be a new tour guide . The only info given to us about surroundings was promoted by our driver who spoke better English than our guide. This was the day before carnival began so we did expect not to see as much as any other time of year. We saw the Christ the redeemer statue and sugar loaf. Both attractions our guide had to ask where to go and how to enter as if she hadn't been there. She even had tourists take her picture at the two attractions. We had a fast lunch at Burger King. That was it. Today another passenger on the ship said they did in fact have a 9 hour tour and went to coppacabana beach, other locations as well as everywhere we went. Our guides were certainly not experienced as we would have expected through viator for a private tour.

Excelente tour por diferentes lugares de Rio... Paulo, el guía, muy ameno y sabe mucho de muchas cosas... Ursula, nuestra chofer, manejó excelente. Nos sentimos siempre muy seguros. Nos faltó tiempo para recorrer la catedral y la escalera de selarón. Pero el tour muy bueno. Gracias!!!!

Paolo was amazing. He took us to Corcovado, a waterfall in Barra, the Porto Maravilha area, lunch in a typical restaurant in downtown, the famous tiled steps, and ended up at the sugar loaf. The tour was never rushed and Paolo had a wealth of insights not only on what we were seeing but also the culture and history. As a professor of Philosophy, he was very well-informed. He even gave my wife and I some gifts that were typical of Brazil! We enjoyed our tour tremendously and highly recommend it.

There were four of us, together with our beautiful guide Isabella and driver Marcos, in a very comfortable vehicle. Could not have asked for a better overview of this gorgeous city. We had a wonderful time.

Excelente experiencia y servicio. Alejandro y Vinicius muy agradables, simpáticos y con paciencia para los niños. Visitamos la foresta de Tijuca, Catedral, Escalera, Corcovado, Pan de Azucar y Maracaná entramos, sólo estaba considerado pasar por fuera. Almorzamos en Copacabana y nos dieron varios tips de Rio. Totalmente recomendable! Siempre con una sonrisa.
