Аудиогид на русском очень плохой - почти никакой информации о городе и объектах, которые проезжали. Но живой гид неплохой. Хотя языка и не знал, организовал хорошо, все четко. О достопримечательностях тоже почти не рассказывал. Работал как сопровождающий группы.

Uitstekend geregeld, prima busje en een gids die voldoende informatie gaf. De lunch was uitstekend, veel meer als wij er van verwacht hadden. Bij alle bezienswaardigheden was voldoende tijd om alles goed te bekijken. Kabelbaan en trein liep allemaal soepel, zonder wachttijden.

Tour completo per chi desidera vedere il più possibile con un solo giorno a disposizione. Scesi dalla nave, all'uscita del porto abbiamo trovato ad accoglierci il sig. Aldo (a cui va il nostro caloroso ringraziamento) che ci ha accompagnati in taxi a raggiungere gli altri partecipanti al tour e nel tragitto ci ha dato, in italiano, molte notizie ed informazioni utili. In mattinata siamo stati condotti al Pan di Zucchero e alla Cattedrale con guida parlante anche italiano e ci è stata fornita anche audioguida. Dopo il pranzo (incluso) siamo stati aggregati ad altro tour per recarci al Corcovado e alla scalinata Selaron (purtroppo in questa seconda parte la guida parlava in inglese, pur comprendendo l'italiano) e poi di lì un taxi, chiamato dalla guida, ci ha ricondotti vicino al porto. Qualche pecca organizzativa nel tour pomeridiano e nel riaccompagnamento al porto (il taxista non è stato in grado di riaccompagnarci al porto, ma ci ha lasciati nelle vicinanze).
