Had an amazing tour with Victoria our guide, and Marcelo who drove us around and also provided wonderful tips about the areas we were in. Can't imagine a better day out to see Rio. We were picked up at our Airbnb in Copacabana on time. Communication was always given on confirming the trip details, how far they were, leaving times at every destination. Victoria knows the area so well. We were a group of 7 people and were joined in the transport by others. The transport was spacious and had the aircon on blast. Which helped tremendously with the heat and humidity. Learned so much about beautiful Rio!

Awesome activity, i would definitely recommend. It was my first time doing something like this and Paulo was very cheerful so the whole thing went smoothly. Thank you for this experience!

Excellent guide and relaxed friendly tour into a forest on the edge of a city. Superb, loved it.

Klaus was an excellent guide! Speaks very good English and was nice to get along with

Vicky and Marcel shared lots of wonderful gems along the tour
