Great way to see the outstanding features of Rio - especially Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain - plus some main sites in Central Rio. Also a very large and tasty lunch! Having a knowledgeable guide was a great addition Would recommend also doing a walking tour in central Rio. The combination gives a really good sense of the city.

Good tour guide, unfortunately a lot of driving and few stops away from the Sugar Loaf and the Corcovado (a church and a staircase, but both very nice). Unfortunately, there was not enough time at the two main sights and the tour ended at 3.30 p.m. A little more time would have been nice

Priscylla and George picked us up from our hotel on the morning of our tour in a minibus and proceeded to pick up the rest of the group. After picking everyone up, Priscylla started the tour - speaking in 3 different languages to cater for the group. She was super friendly and chatty, and very knowledgeable. She got everyone into good spirits very early in the morning. Priscylla remained upbeat during the whole day, getting to know everybody and answering questions. She set meeting times and allowed us to have our own time at each location. We had a fantastic and fun day and couldn't recommend Priscylla enough, she felt like a friend at the end of the day!
