The tour is worth the money! Driver was prompt and delivered us back at the airport on the very minute we had agreed upon! It is truly a private the tour. You as a customer pick the things you want to do. The pick up car in our case was an extended suburban with plenty of room and a huge engine stick shifted - which caused sometimes a bit of an abrupt movement. In the more than hectic traffic this was a big asset because you always felt very safe in it. I strongly would recommend to provide a bottle of water for each passenger as a service of the tour. in most of the visited cafes you could not pay with a creditcard and on a lay-over you normally would not change money. In our case the driver paid for us which we repaid to him in US dollars Amother flaw was that I understood form the description all entrance fees included that all the entrance fees would have been covered. The driver consulted this with his boss by telephone and it was stated that only one of the entrance fees could be covered by him. We had to pay for the sugar loaf mountain cable cars ourselves.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better January 2018

Tour was disappointing. In fact was less a tour and more like having a driver that took us to Corcovado, Sugar Loaf (we were unable to go up because prior arrangement had not been made and it was a 2 hour wait to go up), drive past Copacabana and Ipenema beaches. Landmarks were not pointed out
