After reading several threads about airport transfers, I decided to use Bruno of Gringo management due to the rave reviews of forum member "BFG". I emailed Bruno notifying him of our arrival and if can accommodate 8 people with 8 full size luggage and 8 hand carry luggage. He said he'll use 2 cars for $65 each car. No problem, booked and ready to go.
After an 18 hour flight, tired however excited, we see Bruno at the arrival area, took us down the parking lot and guess what? 2 damn mid-size cars. A ford focus and his car. There is no way in hell all our luggages would fit + passengers and he knew it as well. We were literally standing in the parking lot for a good 20 minutes while he figured out how in the world this will work. We even offered to just cancel the service so we can just go upstairs and get a radio taxi, he was insistent he can work this out. He tried to "call" someone however to no avail, they played around how to fit the luggages in. I then stepped in, i told him all the large luggage was to be placed in his car and most of the hand carry on his friend's focus. Good, everything fits, but I kid you not, where are the passengers going to fit? Remember, there's 8 of us, ALL full size adults. We then ask how far is the terminal from the airport? 15 mins! no problem! So as a family, we decided to just get the hell out of the airport, to just suffer for 15 minutes of tight car ride. 5 people went to his car, 1 in the front, 4 on the back..tight! the other car transported the 3 other. 1 in the front, and get this, 2 people at the back squeezed in the size for just 1 person as majority of the hand carry luggages was in the backseat.
that 15 minutes turned into a 1 hour ordeal because of the traffic in Rio, not only he did not deliver the services as promised, he lied to us how far the terminal was, even if there was no traffic, it would have taken him atleast 30 minutes to get there.
I will never recommend Bruno to anyone travelling more than 2 people. Save your time, money, and headache. Don't worry about the airport transfer, you can do it at the airport directly, the radio taxis have kiosk once you step out of immigration.
don't even bother.
