Family had a great time. Tour guide took excellent care of our two small kids. We enjoyed going on Sugarloaf and seeing the Christ statue.

This was my first trip to Brazil and Rio, and because I had limited time in Rio, I wanted the best 1 day tour of Rio highlights. It was awesome! It was punctual, fun and learning experience thanks to the great staff in Vincent and Alvez!! I recommend booking this tour from this company: very satisfied!

My fiancee and I decided to explore Rio all at one shot and booked the Full Day in Rio Tour. Our tour guide, Vincent and driver were excellent. They were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the city of Rio and the various attractions. Vincent spoke English, Spanish, and Portuguese so it made it easy for us to learn about Rio and ask any/all questions. This tour was everything we expected and much more. We were punctually picked up at our hotel. Before 9 am we were on our way to start the tour. The tour felt intimate given the group was not a large group. Christ the Redeemer statue was the first attraction on our agenda, but because the day started out cloudy and their was limited visibility, Vincent wisely altered the agenda to allow us to get the best out of our tour.In our opinion, the two highlights of the tour were the Sugar Loaf Mountains and the Christ the Redeemer statue. The views were breath-taking. Both are a must see experience.The other stops along the trip were also great (Seleron steps, Maracana Stadium, the Cathedral, etc.) however, less time is spent at these sites given their are a lot of sites to cover and a limited time to cover them. Most of the time is spent at the Sugar Loaf Mountains, Christ the Redeemer, and lunch. Moreover, we had lunch at an all you can eat churrasco/carnicería restaurant (Carretao), which is highly rated on yelp. The food was amazing. It was very authentic and the quality of the food was very good.Overall, this tour was worth every penny (Real). One gets a little bit of everything on this tour. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to experience Rio. If you do, hopefully you can explore Rio with Vincent!

With limited time to sight see this tour gave me excellent bang for my buck. The tour guide and driver were excellent, patient and knowledgeable. The tour guide (Flavio) easily switched between English, Spanish and Portuguese and did a great job pointing out the sites and giving historical context.This tour was worth every cent.

Very Disorganized confusion about who should be in what van meant a 30 minute delay for the tour to start. Tour Guide was ok but not great. Van was to small for so many people.

A very well organised trip. Very comfortable transport and prompt pick up. We visited in September and viewing of Christ The Redeemer was hampered by cloud at the summit. However our guide, who was also the owner of the company, took us to an alternative viewing point on the way back down so that we had a second opportunity to see the statue. Very knowledgeable and helpful guide who imparted many interesting facts and was excellent at answering any questions. Thoroughly recommended. Lunch was very good too.

Wonderful day. Alex was very noligable and his English was perfect. The restaurant for lunch was perfect. Travelling by myself was easy because some other guests were really friendly and took me under their wing. Only one little complaint. Alex never helped the ladies off the bus. At 73 help would

This tour was fantastic and we saw every bit of Rio that you could all in one day. Our tour guide João was brilliant, knew so much information and was there to answer any questions we had even became our photographer so we didn't have to keep having selfies. Even recommended places to eat and things we must try before leaving. The buffet lunch included was also really delicious. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to experience Rio with a local informative guide.
