Great tour!! Pedro the guide was very knowledgeable about everything. I even tried to one up him on a few things but even with all the research I did before coming here he always had a little extra unknown fact about everything. Everything ran smoothly and they kept everything flowing. Was able to get everything in, and have a little extra time at a few places. Would definitely recommend.

My guide Pedro was a very great at his job and the driver Luis got us to every location safely. I was not vaccinated so I could not go into Christ the Redeemer or Sugarloaf mountain but I was still pleased with the trip. I will come again very soon and book the same tour as I did not know I needed to be vaccinated.

Igor Mendez was our tour guide. He was fantastic! He was punctual, very knowledgeable, informative, passionate about Rio and all it has to offer.

Nice guide, and nice stops. Lunch is not to good but decent :)

Patrícia is the best guide ever !! Highly recommended!
