This was the best tour we have taken and so worth the price. Our guide Leonardo was fantastic, providing information in English, Portuguese and Spanish (I think-I only understood the English!). He was knowledgeable, kind, helpful. The lunch was better than our meal the night before at a much more expensive restaurant. Driving would have been a bit harrowing had we attempted this with a rental car, well, more than a bit, and we never would have been able to see all these sights in one day.

Victoria , my guide is so nice and kind. She told me a lot of stories about Christ and sugarloaf. She waited for me when I got my tattoo on urca. Thank you very much! Everything is perfect.

The activity offers great views and locations, but the best is the great Brazilian hospitality.
