Fantastic private day tour in Rio
Feb 2021 • Family
Excellent day tour of Rio with highly knowledgeable and very friendly tour guide! This city is truly amazing, and having a comprehensive tour at the beginning was a wonderful way to get the lay of the land before exploring further on our own.

See the sights of Rio
The tour took us through a number of Rio's sights, Christ the Redeemer, a water fall and nature walk, the Chinese View, Escadaria Selaron art steps and a drop off at Sugarloaf Mountain. As a whole the tour was good, but being multilingual, the focus more about getting through the tour than making sure everyone is across things. More time would be great at the waterfall, and the steps so an earlier pick up may work. Option to drop off at Sugarloaf was good and saved time as we wanted to experience the sunset

Walking Tour of Santa Teresa area of Rio
Nov 2018
We met Lola in front of the Copacabana Palace then walked to the subway that took us to Cinelândia Square. From there we got to admire the lovely center of Old Town Rio de Janeiro as we walked along the tiled streets to Salerno's Staircase. From there we rode up to the artistic area of Santa Teresa to explore the many colourful streets, small shops of artistic crafts and lovely older homes of the area. This tour involved over 20 000 steps so is not for the faint of heart but well worth the effort.

Good tour but ruined by bad guide
Apr 2019 • Couples
Whilst the tour intinery / locations are good unfortunately the guide on our trip wasn’t the best. There were 10 people on the tour, 8 of them English but she spent the whole time speaking in spanish to the other 2 people and then just pointing out the landmarks we were at in English, giving no history about them.

But what really shocked me and I find unacceptable was when she left one of the group behind in Lapa (not the safest area). We stopped for lunch and one of the group didn’t want lunch so the tour guide said he could go off and be back in 1 hour. However everyone had finished their lunch in 40 minutes and the guide said we couldn’t wait for him so got everyone back in the van and left - even after the other members of the group said we should wait. I felt very uncomfortable with this as she couldn’t contact him. People choose tours in Rio for the safety aspect and don’t expect to be left behind. I would have been very scared if it had happened to me.

Amazing!!
The tour was amazing... It was like a group of friends hanging around and just getting to know this amazing city. The tour guy (sorry but I forgot his name) was amazing.. he did the tour in English, Spanish and Portuguese and it was like a walk in the park for him. And he even took the time to spend one on one time for each family at each stop.

Rio de Janeiro Main Landmarks tour
My girlfriend & I went on this tour. It was fantastico! Our tour guide Filipe was awesome! & so was the driver 😀 Filipe was extremely knowledgeable, imparting lots of trivia & answering all our questions. Because of Carnival the streets were crowded, most of the places really busy, & the Cathedral closed but Filipe improvised wherever he could to ensure we got the most out of each visit. The Christ the Redeemer monument was cloudy so he took us to another spot so we could see the wonderful views of Rio. We worked to a schedule but he didn’t rush us. We can’t recommend this tour enough. It was absolutely perfect a must see for anyone visiting Rio. Thanks Filipe you made the tour so enjoyable! Cheers

Excellent Tour
My girlfriend and I just completed the Rio de Janeiro Landmarks Tour with Brazil Expedition. Our guide Dandara was very knowledgeable and engaged with the each member of the group. The sites were all the must sees in Rio and we were given plenty of time in each attraction. The price is awesome for everything you get in this tour. Thank you for a great day.

Awesome Way to Experience the Wonders of Rio
Jan 2019 • Solo
The Big Dude tour was epic! It really shows us the city and all the top locations to visit with amazing guides and lot´s of interesting facts to learn. The group was super chilled and we quickly bonded which made everything so much fun! My favorite part was the Tijuca Forest - I found the biggest urban forest fascinating! The Selaron steps is really cool as well! Felipe was a awesome guide! I totally recommend this!

Big Dude Tour- Incredible!
Jan 2019 • Couples
Decided last-minute to do this tour and I would 10/10 recommend! We paid less than $50 and were transported in a van with an English-speaking guide, taken to 7 main sites (most of which we may not have seen otherwise), taken to a great lunch spot (not included but endless buffet for $11), and dropped off at the end at Sugarloaf Mountain. The staff was so kind and easy to communicate with before the trip. We spent a perfect amount of time at each location and the guide was more than happy to take pictures for us! HIGHLY recommend
