Excellent experience! Kattya picked us up at time provided. She was great at giving us the tour! She spoke very well English and Spanish. Gave us great information for purchasing souvenirs. Great ride, our driver drive very well. Christ was a bit crowded when we arrived however, not as much as when we departed. I guess early pick up was worth it.

What a great experience, though there was no sailing John and our captain provided an excellent round trip surrounded by the beauty of Rio. When we weren't nibbling on the snacks and drinks, John was able to provide a mini history breakdown which I truly appreciated. Definitely worth the experience.

Great overall tour. Got to see the major sites and a good portion of the city. Juan was an excellent tour guide. Very friendly and informative. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

Vincent was the best tour guide. I learned so much about Brazilian culture, politics and the Brazilian people. This tour was worth every penny!

German speaking guide "Ulysses" was punctual, competent and very friendly. A highly recommended tour.
