Vincent is the best tour guide I’ve ever had. His knowledge of Rio and the country of Brazil is astounding. He is very hospitable, entertaining, and is very eager to help you understand everything, You will feel a part of the Brazilian culture once you have a tour with Vincent.

Excellent trip to iconic sights

This was an excellent tour, a great start to our holiday in South America. The mini bus, with our guide Victoria, arrived promptly at our hotel at 7.30 am. During the drive to our first stop, Christ the Redeemer, our guide provided interesting facts about Rio, Brazil and the places we were visiting. We arrived early at the Statue and so it was not crowded and we were able to enjoy around an hour wandering around, admiring the statue and the wonderful scenery. The trip to Sugar Loaf Mountain was again made interesting by our guide providing information. We needed to buy our own tickets for the cable car at Sugar Loaf mountain, but this enabled us to take advantage of the over 65 rate! Again we had arrived early so there were no queues and we could really enjoy our visit and make the most of time there. We arrived back at our hotel around 1.00 pm, so we had plenty of time to explore independently in the afternoon An excellent trip, very well organised by the local company, we would certainly recommend it. If you are limited in time, this is an ideal way to see two iconic sights.

Attractions are great - guide was poor and wasn't worth the money.
Jonathan
, Feb 2020
The attractions themselves are great and well worth seeing. Unfortunately, out guide was very poor and added almost no value to the tour. Listening to other guides we picked up interesting facts and insights, but our own guide did not contribute much to our experience. This was disappointing and meant we got less than we expected for the money.
