Thomas picked us up in his very clean and air conditioned car and off we went. Thomas was so friendly and had perfect English. He was by far the best tour guide we have ever experienced. His knowledge of Brazil and in particular the attractions/areas we explored was so interesting and gave us an in-depth understanding of this beautiful place! Not only did we get to see the sights of Rio but he also gave us some fantastic recommendations to eat and where was safe. I could not recommend him enough and when I return… I would most certainly ask him to take us to explore new places!
Coming back with my family soon!

It's was fun filled, the views from Corcovado was breath taken, striking a pose with Christ Redeemer statue was dream come true and the art work projects the beauty of selaron steps. Money spent worth the value.
Easy and convenient

Great tour and stress free way to see Christ the redeemer and additional interesting sights on the city. Monica even offered to take some great pics which turned out really great. Thanks Monica:)

I had the most fun on this tour. My guide was amazing. He educated us on the culture, we didn’t wait in any lines and he took the best pictures:-)
Unbelievable Experience!
James_W, Nov 2020
We had a wonderful time! Our guide went above and beyond. We went on a van tour that included the Catedral Metropolitana de São Sebastião, Selaron Steps and Christ the Redeemer. We were initially denied entry to the Christ the Redeemer upper level, but our tour guide arranged for us to go via the train from Corcovado! That part was worth the entire trip! Very comfortable and awesome views. Of course the Redeemer was awe-inspiring and the views from the statue of Rio were breath-taking. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

Wir hatten eine schöne Tour und haben die wichtigsten Dinge gesehen und es wurde sehr gut erklärt. Carla hat uns noch das Video von Snoop Dog zu den Treppen gezeigt, die wir nachher bestiegen haben. Es hat sich gelohnt.

Gostaria de elogiar o guia João, excelente profissional. Muito simpático, atencioso e muito conhecimento.
Adecuado para conocer la ciudad en poco tiempo
AMANDA_A, Mar 2022
Con poco tiempo para visitar la ciudad es muy adecuado. Todo muy correcto y seguro. Quizás faltaría un poco más de tiempo en el Cristo.
