Sadly the weather was dreadful for the Christ the Redeemer statue visit today. However our lovely tour guide Kathy really helped us enjoy the day. We followed this visit with comprehensive city tour taking in the steps Cathedral Stadium et cetera and had a great time with the other guests on our bus tour. After lunch we finally managed to achieve a break in the cloud and went to Sugarloaf Mountain and was able to soak up the sights of the wonderful city. A great day out.

We visited Rio on a cruise ship. The ship stayed for 3 nights and provided several tours (to the main Rio attractions). We wanted to see more of the city so I booked a private tour with Carioca Tropical. It turned out to be the best experience we had in Rio.

Our guide was Celio (or WIll). He was waiting for us when we exited the terminal at the scheduled time and was parked nearby. The car was new and very clean and offered us adequate room (and good air conditioning).

Celio took us all over the City. We visited Santa Teresa, Copacabana Beach, numerous viewpoints that offered great views without the crowds at the big attractions. We also drove across the long bridge (it had great views of the harbor) for a drive through Niteroi. Celio provided great commentary about what were were seeing (his English is very good) and answered all of our questions.

To conclude the tour, I asked Celio to take us to an authentic Brazilian restaurant. He chose a churrasquiera in Copacobana (a Brazilian steakhouse). It was excellent.....we were filled with a variety of roasted meats at the end of the evening (at a very reasonable price).

I found the booking process with Carioca to be very easy and they were very responsive before we arrived. As I've described, we had a great tour. We highly recommend Carioca Tropical and Celio!

This is my review of the All Day Rio tour taken February 28, 2020. Our guide Sandra is one of the best city guides I have ever had. She knows Rio inside out and shares a lot of delightful stories about the city and its neighborhoods. This is an amazing city, beautiful, colorful, distinctive, and raucous, and that requires a stellar host like Sandra. Bruno our driver was efficient in getting us around. The tour itself that I went on was quite comprehensive, covering the highlight attractions like Corcovado Cristo Redentor, Tijuca and Pão de Açucar. It was a value for all that we were able to see and take in.

Peter & Lino were by far the best tour guides of our trip! Lino’s driving was expert level, we never felt unsafe. His smile so welcoming. Peter was very knowledgeable, personable, and talented! We loved speaking English and Spanish with him, while learning words in Portuguese! The best day with them and would absolutely take the tour again if it meant we got to spend more time with Peter & Lino! The tour itself was awesome, we got to visit a large amount of Rio de Janeiro in a day!

Have you ever met a tour guide who was really in love with her city….well we just did! I am embarrassed that I forgot her name!!! I do know she plays the drums during Carnaval! She spoke with such enthusiasm and love for her city. Most importantly she did not bog us down with names and history ( that we could not relate too). When she felt it important to what we were viewing or places we were taken too….that’s when she expounded in real time. We have had 3 tours in Rio….this was, by far, the best. So much so that my husband said, “We should come back for Carnaval!”
You cannot go wrong with this tour and the guide….

Monica was a great tour guide. She texted us the day before our scheduled tour date to introduce herself and confirm our pick up time. We visited Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf mountain, a fantastic tour ( we beat the crowds by starting around 8am). This tour won’t disappoint! Monica was a fantastic tour guide who was extremely professional, kind, welcoming, and knowledgeable (speaks great English). She gave us lots of Rio/ Brazils historical and cultural information and was more than happy to answer questions. She also offered recommendations of other things to do/ see and places to eat during the tour. Monica’s driver Lino was also kind and drove us around safely in an updated van that had AC and a mic/ speaker combo. They worked very well as a team. (We never had to wait for our van after a tour) Lino would be out front waiting on us. Definitely a must when visiting the city!

An excellent guide, very knowledgeable, pacing was great which enabled us to see all the main sights that we wanted to see. Great access to the train to Christ the Redeemer, cable car to Sugar Loaf and took us on a fascinating tour of the downtown district of Rio. The icing on the cake was Sergio taking us to a great restaurant at the end of the tour and securing a table. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and would highly recommend Sergio as a guide if you are visiting Rio.

I had an Amazing time at the tour today with Monica and her driver. She was very kind, knowledgeable, clear, friendly, professional, and everything else you would want on a tour guide. I was alone with them for the second half of the tour and they were even open to make some changes to accommodate my preferences. They were also on time, hassle free, and we barely had to wait on lines. They really took the extra mile to make me happy even if it wasn’t in their program. The tour itself was awesome. Rio is a gorgeous city that amazes the eye with its unique nature and landscape. There are endless possibilities to take panoramic pictures, learn, and have fun. I also felt safe. I highly recommend this tour with Monica and her team.

I took the full day Redeemer/Sugarloaf/town tour and definitely recommend it. The guide, Meilin, is very knowledgeable but not overbearing and facilitated a relaxed but informative visit to each site. It’s a great way to see some of the main sites!

The tour was just right for a one day stay in Rio. You can see the sugerloaf mountain and Christ the Redeemer statue. On top of that a lot of great explanations and stories about Rio. Our tour guide Peter was awesome. I will come back again with my wife for sure.
