Awesome experience. Our host Wagner and Fabiana were great company super insightful and very down to earth. The ride in the boat and the stops were also fantastic. Just what the doctor ordered with white beaches, brief walks through nature, and plenty of down time to chill. The car ride out was perfect for learning the ins and outs of Brazil. I would do this tour everyday if I could!

Our guide jaliber was great- giving us plenty of info and allowing us to customize our day to include a visit to jardin botanical which took us over the time by about 30 minutes of the allowed tour but he was fine with that. Having a guide allowed us to bypass the long lines at sugar loaf and Cristo redentor. We had plenty of time at each site to take pictures, shop and grab a cold drink(very needed in the hot Brazil sun). Would definitely recommend the private tour option and our guide Jal. Thanks for showing us around your city.

We spent the day with Jal seeing the highlights of Rio: Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf Mountain, and many of the historic sites of the city. Having a guide really streamlined the process to see more sites in 1 day than we could have on our own. Jal was knowledgeable and geared the tour towards our interests. We really appreciated his driving & getting us to key sites. A fun day!! Thanks Jal!!

Had a great day in Rio thanks to our wonderful tour guide, Jal. He took us all over the city and was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would thoroughly recommend Jal's private tours to anyone coming to Rio.

We had an excellent private tour with Jal yesterday. Jal suggested some adjustments to our itinerary based on weather conditions and we were able to capture the best moments at each stop. Jal was very knowledgeable about the history of Rio and told some amazing stories that brought the history to life. He also took us to some sites we never would have found on our own. Thanks Jal for the wonderful day.
