This tour was amazing and a must-see in Rio de janeiro especially when your tour guide is Marcelo! He made everything go smoothly and truly a remarkable experience! Highly recommended.
We really enjoyed this trip. It's a superb way to see the key sights in Rio at your own pace. Marcelo was great and contacted us in advance with advice on tickets etc which we found really helpful. It's a full day trip and we visited Christ the Redeemer, Tijuca Forest, Maracana Stadium, Metropolitan Cathedral and finished with Sugar Loaf Mountain at sunset. Marcelo had a supply of drinks and snacks to keep us going throughout the day and we stopped at a great buffet restaurant for lunch. All in all a great day and would definitely recommend.
This tour was fantastic!! Marcelo had the full day planned, yet was flexible enough to move the agenda around so that we got to the Christ The Redeemer Statue just as the sun was coming back out after rain showers. We had a terrific view! He took us to a great local buffet in a very nice restaurant called Bassa, with white table cloths and friendly service. We didn't speak any Portuguese, so Marcelo walked through the buffet line with us and described every dish. And the food was really great!! We saw Copacabana and Leblon beaches, a beautiful monastery, and the Selaron Steps. Marcelo was so patient, and gave us all the time we needed at each site. We went to Sugar Loaf, where Marcelo let us take our time watching the sun set. And best of all, at the end of a full day of touring, he took us to a grocery store and helped us pick up a few items that we needed to take back to our condo. That was definitely above and beyond the call of duty after a long day!! I can't recommend Marcelo highly enough. And he sent us beautiful pictures even after we got back home. Obrigado, Marcelo!!
Marcelo is a excellent guide who took me wherever I wanted to go. I also really appreciated that we communicated constantly before my arrival so my sight seeing day would be perfect. For the price, I can and #39;t recommend this tour enough. Book him now while he has the availability as you won and #39;t regret it
We took this tour in April and had an absolutely fantastic time. Marcello was great, really informative and easy going but very keen to ensure that we had a great day and did exactly what we wanted to so he gave us options to suit us. The car was very comfortable and there were plenty of drinks and snacks. Lunch was superb at a local cantina - really fantastic food eating with locals. This is definitely the way to see Rio and I can't recommend it enough. We traveled around Brazil and heard many stories of coach tours in Rio that spent 2 - 3 hours picking people up and dropping them off - this trip has no such problem and is ironically much cheaper. One of the highlights of my 4 weeks in south america - book it now you won't be disappointed.
Tour was absolutely amazing and the tour guide was awesome
Marcelo outstanding tour guide. thank you again
I can't really put into words how awesome Marcelo was. If you're reading this, please don't hesitate, just book him now while you can. He showed up on time, and was super friendly and professional in every sense of the word. He is also VERY flexible. If there's anything you want to see, he'll make a way. If you don't want to see it, he won't take you there. He took us to Corcovado Christ the Redeemer, Maracana Stadium where we took a tour, Selaron Stairs which he climbed with us, and Sugarloaf Mountain. He even showed me a spot where I could grab some Cachaca to take home. His SUV is spacious and comfortable. He brings water and snacks so you don't get too hungry or dehydrated during the day. He also took us to a really good, clean buffet restaurant for lunch that served local Brazilian food. I enjoyed every minute of this tour, and it really was the highlight of this trip. Marcelo's English is excellent, and the information he gave about each location was very helpful. Honestly, he's probably worth twice the rate that he charges. I can't say enough good things about this experience.
