This is the BEST way to see Rio!
Jun 2021 • Solo
From the time the driver and guide picked me up until they dropped me off at the end of the day, I was learning and growing from this experience! Sergio was my guide and his knowledge of his home city is extensive and endearing. He answered all of my questions and was very patient with me as I don’t speak Portuguese. I felt safe the entire time. I was in awe of the sights and sounds of Rio! I will be back and I hope to take another tour with Sergio when I return!

Best day tour in Rio I've had.
Dec 2020
Sergio was great! He was a walking encyclopedia of info on Rio. He made sure to take group pics of all of us at all the spots. I had done 2 other tours over last few years and his was the best I've been on! The lunch at Carretao was excellent. Staff were all friendly and helpful there. Lena(?) the driver was great too, did a good job navigating the streets of Rio.

Best Day visiting major Rio site with our tour guide!!
This was our first time to Brazil, and we were so happy that we decided to book this tour, which was was lead by our lovely guide Katia! She spoke English perfectly (several languages actually), was charming and funny, and efficiently took us around to Cristo Redentor, Sugar Loaf, and the famous steps to name a few places. It was great having a guide who took care of all the tickets for us at these tourist attractions. We especially loved the authentic Brazilian churrascaría that we visit for lunch—usually restaurants on tours feel contrived, but this one had delicious food and we saw several locals enjoying their lunch there. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rio, to learn the history of the beautiful city, plus insider tips on fun restaurants, shops, and districts of the “Cidade Maravilhosa”!

Excellent Tour
The tour including hotel pick up and drop off were well organised. The guide was excellent and there were only 3 of us which was great. A really enjoyable tour which was not rushed.

FANTASTIC Tour
Jan 2020
Checked all the boxes for an absolutely wonderful all day tour of the city and beyond. We, of course, hit all the tourist high spots then found a few others.
This is the very first time we used Carioca Tropocal but if we ever find ourselves back that way and looking for a tour, we'll contact them again.
Great guide, comfy van and attentive driver. Couldn't ask for more.

Carnavale in Rio
Efraim was our tour guide for two days of sightseeing in Rio. I was in contact with him while I was planning our trip. He was very helpful in suggesting an itinerary that worked for us and hotels that met our needs. As we were there for Carnivale things were a little more complicated with traffic and getting tickets for various attractions, but Efraim came through on all accounts. He is native of Rio and very proud and knowledgeable about the city. There was no request he couldn't accommodate. We highly recommend his company. His expertise helped make our trip memorable.
