What people are saying about Rio de Janeiro (State)

A great experience in what one newspaper describes as one of the top ten bars in the world. The atmosphere was great, music good and food and drink served well and were excellent My only criticism was that we were there far too early. It does not open until 8pm and we were picked up far too soon and so had to stand around waiting for it to open

This was a great way to spend an evening in Rio. Despite a short menu we really enjoyed the food and the free flowing drinks were very enjoyed. Transport was smooth and our driver was helpful and friendly. Would recommend.

Top group, lots of fun, very committed and very nice :) thanks Max, for the recommendation for the fish restaurant in Lapa, went there 3 times in a row :) greetings Michael and Theresa from Germany.

Max was very informative and made the tour a lot of fun. We tried a quite a few caipirinhas, atmosphere in all the clubs was very enjoyable and different, but never overwhelming.

Genuine experience. You get to know a lot about samba and carnival! Totally with the price, all the funds are distributed to an NGO.
