Our experienced and competent guides will show you the "Cidade Maravilhosa" (marvelous city) from different angles and love to share the fascinating history of Rio de Janeiro with you.The tours you find on our website are merely suggestions. You can decide what you want to see on your tour. We will tailor a tour individually for you according to your wishes. The duration of our private tours are 4, 6 or 8 hours. Generally there is a possibility to extend a tour spontaneously. As an alternative to our private tours in many cases tours in larger groups can be booked as well. Please check the notes at the end of each tour description. Further details can also be found in our terms of business on this page. If you are a group of two or three, our private tours could be already a better value for your money. A further advantage, our private tours are flexible and you can see more in less time.
