We did this tour during Carnival when most companies either canceled or shortened their tours. They did the entire tour no matter how long. It was wonderful and Alex was great. We had ample time at each stop allowing time to shop, photo or just enjoy the views. They pick up

Hi Caroline, thanks for your review and feedback. During high season main sights get really busy and takes same time to get there. Because of that we had to make a faster visit thru Santa Teresa and Lapa, so you could get the sunset from Sugar Loaf. Hope you enjoyed and wish we can see you soon.. Cheers, Be a Local Tours Team
