Quite cheap tour but covered a lot of places in Rio. Savio is a five star guide. He knows what he is talking about. He was able to manage and re arranged our schedule for the benefit of the tourists. I attended the tour on March 3rd, the weather was unpredictable. Savio rearranged the schedule so we were able to be in the Christ the Redeemer just in time when the clouds cleared up. Amazing tour

The tour was well worth it. Martin, our tour guide was exceptional. He was very informative and got us the best views to take pics at Christ the Redeemer. Tijucu forest was very scenic. Loved the waterfall and lush greenery. The tour size was small, which was perfect because more attention is placed on you and you get to know your group mates well. Really enjoyed this tour.

The whole trip was very professionally organised and Felipe was great. It was really interesting to tour around for the day and our lunch restaurant was excellent value for money.

Amazing experience ... the driver guy and tour guy been very professional and funny ... 5 star !!!

Amazing experience, Professional and fun crew which speaks great English, German and Portuguese
