“Joining Rocinha Favela Tour and Rio Full Day City Tour”

Attraction details
Reviewed 10 August 2017

We booked two tours through Rdj4u - Favela tour and Rio Full Day City Tour. We had exciting and authentic travel experiences while in Rio. What I liked about this company was booking was convenient and easy. We felt safe during the tour and loved the overall experience. Rebooking was also flexible when we met an unfortunate incident before our tour.

Joining the Rocinha Favela Tour was more than just the usual city tour. It was educational and informative. The journey provided us a glimpse of what the culture inside the favela is and understanding about this historical place in Brazilian history.

The Rio Full Day City Tour let us discovered some of the most interesting tourist spots in Rio de Janeiro. It’s a whole day sightseeing activity. Some of the highlights are Escadaria Selaron, Christ Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain. It was a guided tour with professional guide in English, Portuguese and Spanish. The tour came with free transfer from/to hotels. It also has buffet lunch and includes admission fees to some of the attractions.

We booked the Rocinha Favela Tour and the Rio Full Day City Tour with RDJ4U by DayTours4U and it was a great experience. Our tour guides never failed to provide us with information about the beautiful city and they were ready to answer any questions we have. What I liked most about this company is they were very helpful in helping us rebook our Rio Full Day City Tour when we experienced a major problem that prompted us to cancel our initial booked tour. And the best part of the tour was probably during our full day Rio tour where we were carted off to a lunch buffet at a restaurant in Copacabana that served delicious food! That and our energetic guide named Julio and his equally funny side kick driver Hector :) Muito Obrigago!

We were lucky and we were the only ones on the tour. Our guide was a lovely young man who had good English and if he did not understand our questions he would go over with us what we asked and then thank us for helping him. He was very knowledgeable and if we came up with an obscure question he was honest enough to say I don't know. He would then check with his driver to find out if he knew - which 9 times out of ten the driver not only knew but had a story to go with the answer. Taking the trip in a jeep was much better than a bus as being open air we had a much better view. We also had fantastic weather - all in all a great day. I would recommend this company

My Tijuca Rainforest Jeep Tour with Rdj4u was one of the highlights of my trip to Rio. We visited all the main sites in the forest and the views from Vista Chinesa, in particular, were incredible. The driver picked us up on time from our hotel and our guide for the day, Ana, spoke fluent English and offered great insights. We made our reservation at the last minute and the Support Team at Rdj4u provided wonderful customer service. Highly recommended!

Cost about $55 USD pp. Pick up location was a bit of a walk from our AirBnb rental. After almost an hour picking up other tour guests at their hotels, the jeep breaks down once we get on our way so we had to wait for another jeep to pick us up. Tours stops included Vista Chinesa, Cascatinha Waterfalls and a 10 minute hike in the forest to the Visitor Centre where there is a small exhibit on the history of the Rainforest. The stop at Vista Chinesa was no more than 5 minutes to take a photo or two and we did not stop at the Mesa Emperador or Monkey waterfalls. The tour guide was fluent in many languages including Portuguese, English, and German and he answered any questions we had.
