Carlos Fernando (I think that is his name) was the most amazing tour guide. He was extremely polite, caring, and super knowledgeable about the sites, landmarks, and history of Rio and Brazil. He was very careful to always make sure the group was together - always counting the number of people in our group to ensure no one was missing. His ability to speak multiple languages (and VERY WELL) was a huge factor in making the tour a success for me. Carlos Fernando is the best of the best!!
A very well-run day and a great introduction to Rio. We managed to see everything we wanted, despite having to adapt the schedule due to cloudy weather in the morning. The guide Renato was very friendly and interesting, with perfect English and Portuguese. The lunch was fantastic at an authentic steakhouse next to Copacabana!
Tour was as described, as presented in accessible media materials. What made it excellent was Carlos, the guide. His knowledge and insights into the history and present day life of/in favelas (all 786 in Rio & surrounds) was invaluable. Truly an exceptional experience. Salud, Carlos, sir.
The tour was very well organized, the pickup was on time and the tour guide toke the time to explain the day. We had at all the stops enough time to view and make pictures. The lunch was excellent in a typical brazilian restaurant. I would recommend this tour.
Despite COVID-related restrictions that did not allow us visit the interior of the Imperial Palace, Osleide, our guide, and the driver Antonio did an excellent job m. All went very well. Osleide was very instructive and helpful. Remarquable!
