This is the most disappointing and misleading tour I have ever experienced. I strongly recommend to book with another company and NOT Gray Line Tours if you are concerned about your safety and getting to watch the game until the end.

Pick up was organised for 17:10, to which the company arrived 20 minutes late. Once we had finally commenced our journey to Maracana, we were informed by our guide that we would be required to leave 5 minutes prior to the match finishing. The reason he provided was that he “needed to be back in Copacobana by 22:00”. Our guide then proceeded to tell us that the match was not going to be good to watch as the teams are not very good so we wouldn’t be missing out by having to leave early.

Upon arriving at Maracana with a dampened mood, our guide assisted us to the general admission region to which he told us to “find our own seats” and to meet him outside 5 minutes before the game left. He then exited the gate. This is completely contradictory to what is advertised given that it clearly states under the What to Expect heading that we would be “accompanied by your knowledgeable guide at all times.”

At 21:10 our guide came into the stadium and told us it was time to leave, a total of 11 minutes prior to the match concluding. We paid an extraordinary amount of money to not even watch a full game of soccer.

To continue on with our guide not ensuring our safety, at the end of our return journey we were dropped off at the end of the street our accomodation was on, approximately a 200m walk and in front of a restaurant with multiple Flamengo supporters. At the time our guide dropped us off, we were dressed in Fluminense attire (as instructed by the guide in emails prior to game day) and were subsequently harassed by the Flamengo supporters on our walk home.

A very lazy guide and it’s a struggle to call that a guided experience as no soccer knowledge was passed on and we were only in a group/guide environment on the van ride to and from and upon early departure.

It is a waste of money given that a general admission ticket costs BRL 40.00 and a cab BRL 60.00 return. We most definitely did not receive BRL 500 per person worth of safety.

Dear nataliehL8733HX, Thank you for your review. Please know that this is not the experience we want to give to our guests. The guide did this without our consent and will be strongly reprimanded in accordance to our internal policies. We deeply apologize that this happened on your tour and we can assure that this is not the normal experience we provide in this tour. We always leave after the match ends and the guide does seat with the group whenever possible. As far as the attire, we did not instruct you to wear Fluminense jerseys. You asked our customer service department which team's merchandise you should purchase to use at the game. As the game was between Fluminense (local team) and a team from outside of Rio, we instructed that you got Fluminense because of it. We definitely didn't suggest you use any particular attire nor requested it. We apologize that the experience didn't meet our high quality standards. Thank you. Pedro Malta on behalf of Diogo M.
