What People Are Saying About Rio de Janeiro
If I had not enquired I wouldn't have known changed time. Weather was awful. No point in going up at all least of all to keep changing times.
First, Daniel is very easy to do business with. In addition, Daniel has an extensive network of other guides who are equally experienced. He used one of these to pick us up from the airport and he (Eugenio) was great too. It's cool because you get different perspectives from true "Cariocas." For the actual guide experience itself, Daniel was fantastic. He picked us up (on time) and built our day's journey just for us. His mini-van was perfect for touring, his English was excellent, and he is very knowledgeable and passionate about his city. One of the things that impressed us the most was his willingness to be flexible. After a big lunch at Confeitaria Columbo, me and the wife were pretty zonked out, so Daniel noticed and freely offered to take us back to the hotel so we could nap and further offered to come pick us up another day to finish our tour. It couldn't have worked out better. We would definitely use Daniel again.
The only problem I had with the tour was on Trip Advisor it has said that Sugar Loaf was going to be done last so we could see the sunset. This was not true, Sugar Loaf was the first thing we did, then we had the bus tour which was great. I had told my friend who was living in Rio to meet us at Sugar Loaf during Sunset. I had to use the Tour Guides phone to call her and tell her we already did it and there is no need to come, kind of bummed me out. After the city tour we had lunch (should have ordered the fish, it looked great!) and then went to Corocovado. Fortunately we had a clear sunny day and were able to see the Christ perfectly! Overall the tour was very educational, fun, and I would recommend this tour if you are staying in Rio for only a short period of time like we did (1 week) you are able to see and learn many things.
I would not normally choose this kind of large group tour on a coach, but as I was by myself with just one free day in Rio at the start of a business trip, it was a great option to see the most famous sights easily and safely. Our guides for both halves of the tour were excellent, friendly and with lots of local knowledge. The pace of the tour was good and I never felt rushed, with plenty of time to take photos or just enjoy the views. Lunch was surprisingly good, considering it was at a restaurant that clearly caters almost exclusively to the tour group trade. The only negatives I can think of were that the drinks at lunch (even water) were stupidly expensive - i.e. hotel minibar prices - and that the operator could be clearer about which hotels are in their pickup area, as it turned out that mine wasn't. This wasn't really a problem, it would just have been good to know it sooner. Overall though, a great tour and definitely recommended.
