What people are saying about Escadaria Selarón

Great tour with knowledgeable and nice tour-guide Alexander.

Group comprised of 3 businessmen who have travelled to RJ several times for meetings without seeing anything of the city. Alexander of c2rio organized a fantastic tour including the main spots. Alexander was flexible (early pick-up due to evening flight, late lunch), yet super realiable. Tour was in a modern and clean SUV. Alexander is very knowledgeable on RJ, Brazil and its people (history, culture, living, etc.) and fluent in several languages (Portuguese, English, German). I highly recommend c2rio and Alexander and will book him again when we have our next business trip to RJ.

Booking the private tour with C2Rio was easily the best money we spent in Rio. Our wonderful guide João had an encyclopedic knowledge of the city. He adjusted the tour to suit our particular interest in architecture and design, fitting in extra sights and experiences between the normal places. João even helped us build an itinerary for our next day in Rio. If you are on the fence about a private vs a group tour definitely make the private tour happen!

We experienced a private, customized tour of Rio today. With his knowledge of Rio and Brazil, João gave us a unique impression of this beautiful city and its inhabitants. We were sure at all times, João was very reliable, punctual and educated. He speaks German perfectly, as well as other languages. Thanks João - it was great

Marissa was energetic, thoughtful and educational. Most of all she was like meeting up with an old friend.
