Lovely time- Thank you for making our trip safe and special

WTKR was amazing. I was so stressed out about planning tours, and keeping my family safe during our trip to Brazil. I found WTKR through TripAdvisor, and what a lifesaver they were.
I was traveling with my parents and significant other, and we had a 3 day adventure with Carnaval, the Hidden Gems tour, the Metropolis day tour, and Christ the Redeemer/Sugar Loaf. Our tour guide, Lu, organized everything so that we beat the lines and the heat as much as possible. We were picked up in a very comfortable SUV/Van each morning, with the days activities planned out for us, and no stress at all.
Lu was especially nice about taking pictures of all of us (and even got us to Christ the redeemer early so we could get pictures without people in the background- a true feat!). In addition, she also led my significant other and me on a tour of the gay bars which was appreciated since we didn't speak Portuguese.
The price was very reasonable for a private tour for 4 people.
I would totally use them again for trips to Rio, and recommend them to all my friends. It's difficult to find Brazil package deals (like with Gate1 or Intrepid), however, WTKR comes in to the rescue and allows you to have a stress free, safe time.
Thank you WTKR!
