Awesome personalized experience!! Patty was a delight, so informative and flexible. We explored every attraction in the city and skipped the 1 place I had no interest in seeing. We even did a little shopping downtown- Patty translated for me and helped ensure I got what I needed! We also had time for me to take a helicopter ride from Sugarloaf Mtn. This was the best way to explore the city at my own pace and with the benefit of tour guide/preferential access and with your own private air conditioned car & driver. You do have to pay each site directly but it’s less than booking 4 separate tours and waiting 1-2 hours for a giant tour bus to pick up travelers from 15 stops along the beach. Patty also offers things like accompanying guests for nightlife and beach days! Whatever you’re interests are, she can assist! Highly recommend for solo travelers and couples.

Private guide tour like with a local friend. Patty (perfect English) picked up with private driver and clean and new car direct and on time from hotel. The goals were discussed in the car and off we went to the first stop at the Christ statue. The tour was completely private, any change to the tour would have been possible, but at the same time it was super relaxed to just let yourself be guided. Transportation was provided by our own driver who waited at each exit point and picked us up again. Lunch was at a local eatery in a trendy area you wouldn't find on your own. What was special, however, was Patty's friendly and natural manner, the tour was absolutely individual and local. It doesn't get any better!

Amazing personalized private tour. Patty, our guide, pick us from the hotel with brand new car and personal driver. Tour started with Cristo Redentor and Patty showed us the perfect spot/angle to take pictures and even other tourists were following ours. Tour is completely private, driver waited at every exit point to pick us. We enjoy all the itinerary and most importantly Patty is extremely friendly. She helped us a lot in tips/info/ translation around Rio. We could not expect better service than this! Thanks Patty for the unforgettable trip! Hope to see you again during the carnival

Patty organized everything perfectly and her explanations were very exciting. Your English is excellent. We visited so many beautiful places in 7 hours and personal wishes were fully taken into account. In addition, Patty is an excellent photographer and we have great souvenirs! If we come again - Patty is booked! Thank you very much!

Patty listened to what was important to us to see and do and then added amazing additional sights to visit. Patty English was very good. The Driver made our trip comfortable and safe The knowledge of Rio was insightful We packed a lot of sights into the day tour. Our guides were gracious with their time and energy
