We booked this tour a day or two before we arrived in Rio. As such, we ended up being the only two people on the tour, which makes for an exceptional experience. We were picked up at our hotel (Windsor Leme) in an air-conditioned van. The tour guide (my memory is terrible but I believe it was Monica) had a very good command of English and we had no issues understanding her. We visited several unique neighborhoods in Rio, as well as the Selaron Steps and the Sao Bento Monastery. It was a hot day and our guide made sure we didn't walk too much, having the van meet us in strategic locations. Her knowledge of the area was extensive and she was a delight to talk with. We really enjoyed our tour and would highly recommend it.

Our guide was a little late in arriving but he made up by showing us unique places and a stop for a beer at a lovely place in Santa Teresa. Just loved it. Great time !!!

This tour is also highly recommended. Manuela, our tour guide was also very nice, personable and kind. She was very informative and we learned a lot about the city - we felt we got a good feel about the city , culture , economy and people's way of life. She showed us and visited the highlights of the city and enjoyed them all. We were also given shopping time and felt very safe with her constant watch.

Selaron Staircase was a highlight of our Rio tour. A must for anyone coming to Rio. The tour was flexible with the itinerary as we were able to go to places we chose rather than a rigid itinerary. Our tour guideI believe Manuela was very nice and did a good job answering our questions. Our driver was really great as well.
