Had a good time and a great guide Gustavo ( May have spelled his name wrong,lol) but his English was great and he answered all our questions. It was only three of us who spoke English on a bus of 15 and he made us feel so comfortable. We where visiting Rio from the USA ( Texas) “How about them Cowboys”, lol. I recommend this trip if you travel to Rio . This was a nice birthday trip from my husband.
Great day seeing all the sights
Elizabeth G, 11-01-2023
We had a wonderful day of visiting all the major tours in Rio. We did the tour with our two children (4 and 6 years old) and senior parents. Our tour guide spoke English and was able to provide information on all the sites. Isaac was also funny and entertained us throughout the day. We spent sufficient time at each spot. Lunch was a buffet and had something for everyone to enjoy. Would do the tour again. Was very well priced compared to the exact same tour offered by other companies.
Yes yes yes book it.
