Even though the weather wasn't very good, our guide, Steve, turned this into an awesome excursion! His local knowledge and stories were so interesting and he was able to provide personal insight into life in Rio. I would highly recommend this tour.
EXCELLENT TOUR! OUR TOUR GUIDE WELLINGTON WAS AWESOME!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
brilliant tour, guide and driver were fab! both gave facts I would never have known prior! the picture spots they know are amazing! if sugar loaf was part of the whole agenda I wouldn and #39;t fault it at all,with the optional side I didn and #39;t end up going as it was dark when we finished!
Just as advertised. Very friendly guides who go above and beyond to make sure you and #39;re satisfied. A great tour and very good value! It and #39;s a no-brainer and a must if visiting Rio
Murillo was great. He took us to many places and gave us the history of those places in Brazil. He was a cool guy . I enjoyed my tour.
This tour is from about 9:30am depends on where you are getting picked up from. to sunset 5pm. So you won't have time for the beach on this day. The tour showed us some of the sights for the Rio Olympic games, beaches, Tijuca Rainforest, Christ the Redeemer, and local favelas local villages.
The tour guide said he didn't speak good english, but was actually great at it. He and the driver showed us the city while giving insight on its history in between our stops at the major attractions.
The only thing I didn't like about this tour was the buffet we stopped at. The food was over cooked, so it may have just been that one day. You have to purchase your food for this tour.
I also took the Angra Dos Reis Day trip and Schooner Cruise highly recommend http://www.viator.com/tours/Rio-de-Janeiro/Angra-dos-Reis-Day-Trip-and-Schooner-Cruise/d712-2484_01

I would highly recommend this tour. We went to all the highlights and it was excellent. The guide help with all the translations and gave valuable information about the city. We traveled through out South America and this was by far our best tour.
I originally book the early access tour,to get there super early which is highly recommended to beat the lines, crowd and sun but there was a misunderstanding and they never came to pick me up at my hotel. So I booked this tour simply to kill time my last day in Brazil and hopefully to see something other than the beach on my bday and it was amazing. This tour was better than I expected. My only complaint was that the train or whatever that was to take us to the top to see Christ the Redeemer broke down so we had to wait an extra hour in the sun for the tourist vans to drive us up there, not to mention it was over crowded. Once there it was worth the wait. I was very impressed because I saw more sights than expected and more than what I would have seen on the Early access tour. I would highly recommend this tour. And wear jeans or long sleeves or insect repellent for the forest. There weren't many mesquites, I only got bit once wearing a summer dress,it was my bday but with the Zika virus it good to be safe!! This tour does not include the Sugar loaf Mt but you do pass by it and will get a great view of it at Christ the Redeemer!!

This tour was awesome and I had a lot of fun on it. The two tor guides one did the driving and the other did the speaking as we toured around the great city of Rio! I really enjoyed myself on this tour and again the tour guides were awesome and it was a good 5-6 hour tour. Lots of fun, it was a great way to see Rio!!!
My family had an excellent time on this tour. The guides we ran into another group and were often together throughout the day were knowledgeable and very accommodating to the children in the group. The tour ran on time from pick up to drop off. I highly recommend this tour as even though it was a foggy day they found a few out of the way spots to take excellent pictures. All landmarks were entered in smoothly and with no issue.
Carlos was our tour guide and he's very knowledgeable and funny! Selaron steps is very colorful! The Christ the Redeemer is amazing!
Our guide arrived on time and he was very nice and accommodating..However he forgot to pickup a group of americans so we had to head back and i think we lost a good 30 minutes.. Wish we went to Christ the Redeemer in the afternoon instead of the morning because the its better to take phots selfies with the light the front than at the back. The restaurant he took us was wonderful and it was great making friends with other foreigners. I loved he gave us historial backgrounds of the place. Later in the evening he invited us to a Brazilian Football game! different charge. - it was also very fun.
Yes, we did get to go to most of the places listed. And the driver was wonderful! But the rest was pretty rough.
First of all, the tour started 2 hours late. My sheet said the last pick up was at 9, and they would come to your hotels before that if you were in the district. Although I was about four blocks away and in the district, I never heard from anyone about picking up so I went to meet at the hotel at 9. No one was there at 9 and when I called the first time, they said 9:30. When I called the second time they said the guide was running late so they would pick me up around 9:45, but then I had to sit and wait a 1/2 hour more people to join the tour. Then we had to pick up more people in Ipanema, and then we had to go pick up the guide who came on board with a flurry of profanity promising to make it up to us--not the best start so we actually started heading towards the first location sometime around 11:30. Unfortunately, I had a friend who was leaving town at 4:30. The original 7 hour tour would have had me back in time to say goodbye, but as we didn't get started until after 11, that went out the window. As the tour went on, there was one couple who could understand english, but mainly spoke spanish so the driver guided them as Carlos the cussing tour guide led us. After talking about his 12 year old's tits and using the N word I'm Black by the way I was really over it. He also gave a lot of information that didn't seem to be true. Or at least thing that have been contradicted by almost everything I've read and studied. But it was a great price to be taken to see all the sites and that was nice. We didn't have much of a wait for anything, but the day was so cloudy, no one else was interested in Christ the Redeemer. Because Sugar Loaf would have been a complete waste, they did go to a really cool look out spot that wasn't on the tour. So the two stars are for the driver and the owner was very nice and apologetic about the delay and had a sweet baby.
Late arrival. No tickets prepurchased so having to make two trips to Christ the redeemer. Very little organisation and a poor tour guide who, although helpful when asked questions, spent too much time texting or whatever on his mobile. Use another provider.
My low rating is for two reasons. Firstly, we only saw 2 of the 4 advertised sites, and secondly, the responses to our complaints were poor and deceptive.
The trip started off about 30-45 minutes late. I was told to meet the group at a hotel at 10. We did not leave until 10:30. They did not have enough seats in the tour van to take everyone, so some had to wait for a second vehicle. Our first stop was Christ the Redeemer, which we left after noon. The guide had not pre-purchased tickets, so we wasted a lot of time waiting for tickets, and waiting in line to go up. Because we wasted so much time at Christ the Redeemer, she said we did not have time to go to Sao Conrado.
We drove through Santa Teresa, and had to beg the driver to stop so we could explore the neighbourhood. He eventually did so. The lunch was good, and we were able to take pics at Escadaria Selaron.
From there we were supposed to go to the rainforest. The driver initially said he would not take us because it was so late, and offered to show us the Maracana stadium. At that time it was after 3. We all said we wanted to go to the rainforest, so he agreed to drive there. Actually, he drove directly to the stadium, which is not in the same direction as the rainforest, and once we got to the stadium, he reiterated that it was too late for the forest. So we simply drove past the Maracana stadium.
I felt we were cheated of both our time and our money on this trip. We did not see Sao Conrado or the Tijuca National Park as advertised. Furthermore, when we all requested to to go the rainforest, the driver lied and pretended that he was taking us there, when he was really driving us past the stadium, which was useless since we were not going inside.
Hi, I am not recommending this tour during the Olympics. It was supposed to be a 5 hour tour, but it turned into 9.5 hours as we were waiting at Cristo for 4.5 hours. The guide was nice and made sure we saw the Santa Teresa ? neighborhood despite the late hour, but by the time we were there, it was dark. The group voted not to go to Sugarloaf as it was super late.
Due to the timings, we also didn't stop for food and lived off of snacks - had we known the waiting time, we could have easily had a nice lunch, but it seems like no one really knew how bad it was.
Overall, not a great experience - felt exhausted and bad from not having proper food all day :
