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

I had an amazing experience. It was my first time flying and I was traveling solo. The entire staff made me feel very comfortable. They were professional, well trained, and made an anxious person like me laugh quite a bit lol. I won’t forget that memory

Muita bagunça no dia que fomos…pessoal desorganizado com quem comprou os ingressos pela web e pela bilheteria, muito a melhorar

This is worth the time and the money spent. Greatly recommend this experience.

Great experience, and coordinated well by the company.
