This full day tour of Rio was excellent!! I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone looking to explore the highlights of Rio in one day without having to worry about planning everything yourself. The tour company picked us up from Hilton Copacabana in the morning and dropped us back off at the end of the day. Lunch is included at a local churrascaria. Aline was an incredible tour guide and spoke three different languages during the day to make sure everyone’s experience was as good as it could be. Having the chance to see a beautiful cathedral, Maracana stadium, Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf Mountain, and the Selaron steps in addition to the various neighborhoods of Rio was truly worth the price of the excursion. You will not be disappointed if you choose to go this route.

This full day tour is a great taster for anyone coming to Rio for the first time or for those who don’t have lots of days to visit the main touristic attractions.
It was my boyfriend’s first time in Brazil and although the weather didn’t help much, it has given me a great excuse to come back as soon as possible.
Many stars to Monica Francesca Bertazzolo, our amazing tour guide. She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her work and it shows! She contacted us a day prior to the tour to remind us of covid passes and documents necessary to enter the main attractions, which put us at ease knowing we were being looked after also pre-tour.
We had a bit of a hiccup and arrived in Rio later than expected due to the heavy rain the night before. Monica followed up with us to ensure we would be able to attend the tour and was extremely patient and caring, even though we felt really bad for making the group wait. Empathy is key for high level customer services and Monica demonstrated how she puts this to practice.
Sadly the weather didn’t change much and the views weren’t the best, but the day was fun nonetheless and we got to spend with a great group of people, big families and couples, which brought a really nice sense of comfort and tranquility.
My only not so positive impression was the lunch, as I’m not a big meat eater options were a bit limited at the bbq place we went to. However, the service was attentive and kind, so in the end it was all good and I got to feast on lots of palmitos!
Thank you so much for this lovely day and thank you Monica for not giving up on us. I know we were the trouble makers of the group - Lol!

We were picked up on time at 8:10am as stated by the tour operator. Our tour guide Pryscilla introduced herself and was very good at engaging everyone even though a lot of us spoke different languages. It was a very informative day and Pryscilla made the day feel relaxed and fun. We were on a schedule therefore could not stay at each location for as long as we had wished but there was sufficient time given to see everything and take photos. The driver was very patient with us even when a few of us took longer than requested and although he did not speak English his demeanour was very upbeat. The Brazilian bbq which was included was very nice. This was our first real taste of Brazilian food and there was so much variety all well flavoured. we met some really great people from other parts of the world and were all able to enjoy the tour together. Overall I had an amazing day and would definitely book with them again when I return to Rio. Thank you C2Rio!!

This tour and especially our guide Monica was fantastic. I couldn't ask for anyone better. Very professional, knowledgable, humorous, and accomodating to everyone's needs. During the tour she was constantly providing us with all necessary information relevant to the places we visited, and she did that in all 3-4 languages that the group needed. She exceeded my expactations at all levels and I highly recommend the tour to anyone visiting Rio!! Thanks a lot Monica!

Really disappointed. I had expected an informative relaxed day. The guide right from the start seemed very stressed and on edge. He told us as we arrived at the train up to Christ the Redeamer that he had tickets for 1.55 it was 8.40 and that we might have to go up in small groups and that if we got lost we should make our own way to the cathederal. I found I could not enjoy the visit as I was so worried about getting lost.

I am sorry the tour guide did not handle the situation in a less worrisome manner. He seems to have abused some group control techniques over the groups well-being. I apologize, Susane. João Marcelo

I had a fantastic time visiting great sites in beautiful Rio de Janeiro with my wonderful guide Priscilla and great driver Antonio. Priscilla is an excellent tour guide who speaks four languages which helped make my tour experience a very pleasant one. She was very friendly and made sure that everyone was well informed about the sites we visited. I loved every moment of this tour and would strongly recommend it to friends, family and anyone who wants to enjoy a great day while visiting the Marvelous City. Do yourself a favor and book this tour!

This tour is worth every dollar. The amount of information and different experiences you get, you cannot get by doing any other tour in Rio. Monica was our tour guide, and she spoke English very well. She is a very impressive individual, as she spoke several languages on our tour, to accommodate for guest from all over the world.

Christ the Redeemer decided he wanted to hide behind the clouds during our tour, but he revealed himself just before we left, allowing us to get amazing photos. We had the opportunity to take photos inside the stadium that host Carnival, and Monica was very knowledgable about the history and fun facts of all the areas we travelled through.

Selaron steps had a very long line at the base of the steps, but Monica showed us that you get the same photo by walking up a few sets of stairs than you do at the base of the steps.

The lunch was delicious and is a variety of different foods that accommodate for all eating styles.

Sugar Loaf is not for those afraid of heights, as you can imagine, you are very high in the sky and the only way to reach the top is by taking two cable cars. If you can manage the two brief trips up the mountain in the cable cars, the views of Rio are unbelievable.

Taking this tour was one of the best decisions we made on our trio to Rio. The tour was very well organised, with minimal time wastage in ticket queues etc, and when you consider the time and hassle saved, it turns out to be good value for money, especially if your time in Rio is limited to a few days.

We have been on many city tours, and Monica was one of the best tour guides we have come across. She was attentive, informative and always kept track of where everyone in the group was. She didn’t hurry us through anything, and I think it was partly because of her that we enjoyed the tour so much..

Our tour included lunch, and like some others that we have been on where lunch is included, I expected poor quality and inadequate quantity. But to our surprise, the lunch was very good. As much food as anyone could possibly wish for, tasty and good quality.

We were also very lucky with the weather - it was a clear, sunny day. So all in all, we had a great day.

Full day trip in Rio. Visited all of the sites mentioned in the description. Air conditioned bus to pick you up and take you to every location. Tour guide provided cultural information in between each leg of the journey in multiple languages. Good combination of guided tour plus the freedom to explore on your own at each site. Full lunch at a churrascaria that was not rushed. The only extra was for your drinks during the lunch. The tour did not try upselling or try talking you into another one of their tours. You get to enjoy the journey and the sites.

I would definitely recommend for anyone that wants to capture the main tourist spots in Rio de Janeiro in one day.

With limited time in Rio we chose this tour as it covered a majority of the major sites.

We had a very full bus and that felt quite cramped. After picking up everyone in the group we started our tour winding through the streets of Rio and eventually ending up at the drop off point to go up to Corcovado. Unfortunately by the time we arrived the monument was completely covered in cloud. We had plenty of time there since it was difficult to see anything. Our guide Vinny was great to recommend the mango juice which we enjoyed.

The rest of the tour went as planned. Highlights that we visited were the Selaron Steps, SugarLoaf Mountain and Saint Sebastian Cathedral. There were other places but we mostly drove past them as there was a lot to cover during the day. I would have liked the opportunity to take some pictures in some of the locations but we were going quite quickly. We enjoyed the lunch at Carretao.

Vinny was a very good guide giving his commentary in two languages which I imagine isn't easy. He was really helpful giving us information that I could use for my blog and videos series. And even provided information for us on how we could plan to come back the following day to try to see Christ the Redeemer if the weather was better. We appreciated his knowledge and relaxed approach.

And our driver Martins was pretty amazing. Getting us out of an incredibly tight spot from the restaurant. A very skilled driver!
