        Excellent way to spend a morning
        Very fun drive in an open-back jeep to Tijuca. Great way to spend a morning. Our guide, Jane, was funny and informative with great English, and we saw several butterflies, a monkey with her baby, and a coati!

        Amazing hike to Christ the Redeemer
        Amazing hiking experience with the best private tour guide Weber Fiorini from RioXtreme. He was very knowledgeable of the area, fun to be with, had excellent communication skills in English,and able to guide us safely. This trail is more for someone with a bit more experience in hiking since it was a bit challenging especially going up due to the elevation. Definitely need a good hiking shoes, bug repellent spray, and one bottle of water is good enough as you can buy one when you reach the top. Took 2 hours and 40 minutes going up with multiple stops and took 1 hour and 30 minutes to go down. Total of 10.5 km. Definitely a must to do both ways but if you can’t, you can take the train going down and just take an Uber to your hotel. The whole hike was scenic and covered under heavy vegetation so it was shaded the entire time. A hiking trip is definitely a must if you ever visit this national park.

        Worth it
        Super fun! The tour did not go as long as it says online ( we finished at like 11:30 am) but it was very cool and fun . They even dropped us off at some markets instead of our hotel when we asked .

        Gray Line Río tour with Leal was horrible
        We had a horrible experience with Gray Line tours, a guide named Leal, going to Sugar Loaf, the Selaron Steps, and Christ the Redeemer. There were long waits and the tour didn't help avoid them much if at all. The guide did not provide any insights (other than biased beliefs about whether a certain neighborhood was good or not- Copacabana is [profanity], he said) and when ask historical questions (when is this church from?) he had no answers. He picked us up and then we had to wait an hour as all the other participants were picked up from their hotels. At the end of the day, he had promised explicitly to drop us off first, but wound up saying that we would be dropped last because it was more convenient. Since it would have meant we would arrive 2+ hours after expected and miss a family dinner reservation, we wound up getting out of the tour van and taking a cab back to our hotel at additional cost. The guide stopped to talk to a friend he saw on Sugar Loaf mountain - unrelated to our tour- and had all of us sitting and waiting watching him chat away for a good 10+ minutes before I complained and said it was unfair. The guide repeatedly referred to one family on our tour as "the Mexicans" in a manner that my daughter perceived as discriminatory. All in all- this was a bad tour- the kind that makes you never want to take another tour! I very very rarely write bad reviews but I had to say something about this disaster.

        Good dancing
        High energy with audience participation. Poor lighting for picture taking. Good show but too expensive overall for what is provided

        Great experience
        Great experience with the tour lady, Patricia, on our half day trip in Rio. She was on time, explained clearly, was polite and pleasant. I would use this tour again!

        Christ Redeemer skip the line by Train, Maracana with lunch and Sugar Loaf
        From the organization, service, to the sights, this excursion was one of the best trip we have ever booked. The pickup, transfer and lunch couldn't have been better. A very special compliment to our tour guide Mr. Warley, who guided us through the day very competently and with great enthusiasm. Thank you again, Mr Warley.

        Very disappointing and poor service
        Our pick up point was supposed to be in Sheraton hotel , each email with voucher including night before the trip was confirming 7 am pick up time at the Sheraton , we arrived as directed 15 min prior pick up time , by 7.05 I asked concierge if they know where is our tour and was told that gray line never pick up from Sheraton . Main office located in Sheraton and concierge was able to contact your office and instead of manager handling the situation , your office sent me tour guy who yelled and scream at us after I showed him my voucher . He start throwing his hands at me and yelling that pick up point in the different hotel and he just a tour guy , then he said it’s no managers available abd told us to take a taxi to Hilton . By 8 am no one was available to pick us up at Hilton ether , I was calling and texting your customer service . No one answers the calls , only text and we’re keep telling me to wait , by 8.40 we finally got to the bus - this is 1 hr and 40 min later from original time ( meanwhile description of the your is 7 am plus 3 hr drive ) that what we were promised . I asked numerous times in my texts for contact info for the manager / answer was ok , but info was never sent to me and all my texts were ignored . I have a screen shot of each text with a time stamp . So instead of 10 am we arrived to the Buzios at 3 pm. Your guy was not prepared , road we closed , he said he wasn’t there for 20 years and doesn’t know anything . Ty our was supposed to be in English , he hardly spoke couple sentences in our language , the rest was in Portugal We paid $ 160.00 to enjoy the beach , sun , shopping . Instead we had fast not even good lunch and 20 min at the beach , got to the boat ride at 4.15 and after boat ride had exactly one hour to enjoy the town . Now it’s 11 pm , we still on the road back to Rio , another 1 he 30 min to go . No manager ever contacted us , nether I got his info from your reps . We wasted 8 hr on the road 7 am - 3 pm there , and 3 plus hours back This is the worse experience ever with your company , the worse customer service , not what we were promised and we thinking of canceling our next your with you and rebook it with another agency . We had a tour on 12/26 to crest redemption with other agency and your guy called and texted us on his way to pick us up , was not only on time but earlier . Here you changed pick up point , never even bother to call or text , sent confirmation text day prior with Sheraton as pick up point , yelled and scream at us , never provided with manager info and wasted beautiful sunny day traveling for 12 hours instead of promised day in paradise Very disappointing and poor service !!!

        Both sides plus boat ride!
        Robert was an amazing guide who adapted to several needs of our group. Nicely organized and paced. We squeezed in the boat ride in addition to both sides. Robert made the difference!

        It was very good
        Robert is a great guy. He was patient and explained everything well. We actually spent the Christmas Day together visiting the falls. We had great conversations along the way. I highly recommend his tour.
