    What to Expect
    Following pickup at your Rio hotel, board your comfortable private vehicle and meet your personal tour guide. Your private guide can offer suggestions of things to do and see, or you can simply design your itinerary as you see fit. Please list any special interests you have (art, architecture, history, culture) at time of booking to alert your guide, so that he or she can better prepare for your private tour. If you'd like to stop for lunch, your guide can offer recommendations.

    See the world-famous beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana or venture to Flamengo Park, Rio’s largest leisure complex. Stop by Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, bordered by Rio’s most fashionable neighborhoods – including Lagoa, Leblon and Gávea – and take in the views overlooking Guanabara Bay. View the Sambadrome, where samba schools compete during Carnaval, or admire historical buildings in Cinelandia Square.

    Upgrade your tour to include Sugar Loaf or Corcovado – or a combination of both – including entrance fees and guided transport to each site. Please see the Itinerary section below for additional details on the upgrades.

    Grey Line is the worst. They picked us up and by the time they picked up everybody it took 2 hrs. On the way back it was 11/2 hrs. We were at the state for 45 minutes. So for our have day trip we spent 31/2 driving and waiting. Our tour was really 45 minutes. Not a great value.

    Dear Slickbreuhl, Thank you for your review! The tour takes place from pick up to drop-off. Our drive to the Train Station is part of the tour and going up by train as well. At all times we have commentary being delivered and the assistance of our guide and crew. On another note, I'd like to comment that the description of the experience does not reflect the tour you are reviewing. Best regards, Pedro Malta on behalf of Diogo M.
