I honestly think one could just get a cab to Niteroi and back for half the price of the trip. The entrance fee is like 2$ so the fee is outrageous. Loved all the buildings designed by Niemeyer , the museum itself , i mean the artworks on display nothing special. Now , our guide Vanessa ( i know it was spelled differently ) totally saved the trip for us , tailoring it to our interests. She was very knowledgeable and knew a lot o about history. Went out and beyond. Great guide !
