All the Rio Essentials and a friendly, English-speaking tour guide!

We beat the crowds at Christ the Redeemer and our tour guide, Faby, took great photos of us there. We visited Sugarloaf, had a delicious lunch (our choice of several options Faby suggested), and had laughs and fun at the optional Carnival Experience. We stopped for photos at the Selaron Steps, which Faby helped us with. Faby managed to get us to the Harry Potteresque library - so gorgeous. What a day! I'm sure we saw all of the "must sees" and we had a fun, very conversant in English tour guide.

Wonderful way to see all the big stuff in one day.

This is my second time in Rio, and first I with my better half. This made it very easy to see everything in one day, and then get some ideas for what you want to do for the rest of your trip. Rafael was knowledgeable, funny and a good time to talk to you. We went to a wonderful for lunch, (did not see any tourists) and really enjoyed the fact that we could make the afternoon whatever we wanted. The falls in national park or absolutely gorgeous. While this isn’t cheap, I think it’s well worth the money and makes life super easy if you pick the option where they take care of the tickets.

I really want to shout out Marcelo from Be Free Tours! He was so personable and attentive before , during, and even after my tour. I booked a private tour to see the major sites in Rio. Upon booking he texted me with all the info and the name of my tour guide. I was made aware of everything. They picked me up from the hotel. Mariana was my tour guide and she is the sweetest! Everywhere we went people were coming up to her and hugging her and saying hi. That showed me she was a good person. I saw everything I wanted to see and thoroughly enjoyed. Note I booked private so it was just me and the guide.

Unforgettable/amazing day in Rio

Amazing day in Rio! Driver and guide were outgoing, friendly, and knew the city by heart. We got to see so much more than I thought we would. Steps, library, cathedral, soccer stadium, Christ redeemer, sugar loaf, and more. They were a fun team that balanced each other very well and made our day in Rio unforgettable. We would definitely recommend.
