Great local Insight, safe and reliable. I would highly recommend this tour service to anyone visiting Rio.

Our ship was late disembarking and so we were thrilled to see that our guide Anderson was still waiting with our names and a big smile.
I had listed the things we didn't want to go to, and some of the things we did, and then left it to the company to surprise us. They'd taken note of all my requests. The car was comfortable and roomy enough to take all our luggage. The windows were tinted and the car was locked securely whenever we left it.
Anderson was an excellent driver and speaks English well. He knows his city well, told us many interest ing stories, knew just the right places to park or pull up for the very best views without any crowds.He slowed down or was happy to stop whenever I wanted to take photos. He even took photos of us - a rare event, and they are already in our photobook.
We didn't want to spend time on a lavish lunch, so he took us to an up-market bakery and cafe, where we enjoyed freshly made sandwiches, and delicious brownies.
The entire day felt unrushed with time to really feel as if we'd seen a good deal of this vibrant city. And finally, he drove us to the airport, with plenty of time to check in and relax before our flight.
We can't speak highly enough of this company, and the cost of our tour was a fraction of that others paid through the ship's tour program.
I would recommend Rio Extra Tour to anyone - and have been doing so, even before we arrived in Rio, and to anyone else we know who will be going there soon.
Our compliments to Anderson, Marion, and to the entire company. An excellent job well done.

If you have one day in Rio, please call these guys.they take pride in showing off their beautiful city. Our personal thanks to Anderson for really showing all the famous spots but also for taking us to many places where I think most tours will not go. He picked us up at the airport to drop us to our cruise line and next day took us to see his city with his views and vision.
I promise you will be delighted if you have these guys show you their city.

Our thanks to Anderson and Rio Extra Tour for a wonderful day in Rio last week. Anderson is professional, personable, knowledgeable and went out of his way to show us exciting sights of Rio. He picked us up on time at our hotel, drove us all over Rio for a whole day of sight-seeing and even took us shopping to find a sports jersey for a friend in Florida. Anderson's a great ambassador for Rio, knows his history and geography -- and made the day a memorable one for us. We recommend him with 5 stars!

We were very lucky to find this tour. Our tour guide Anderson managed very well so that we could visit the places where we wanted to go within one day. Moreover he took us the place only local knew (at least Japanese guidebook doesn't introduce) and explained about Rio's history and culture very well. So we enjoyed and learnt a lot ! You can discuss to design your travel beforehand with them and for sure they can give you a lot of options according to your interest and hobby.
