I spent a weekend in Rio and this daytrip will last in my memory as an unforgettable trip! All was very well organized and our guide Camila made it a real special event, not only because of her knowledge of the places we visited and her ability to speak several languages, but above all by her joyful way of touring...

We were very disappointed with this tour. We were given headsets at the beginning and expected to hear the tour narrative on them. Not the case, the guide gave her narrative in 5 different languages and the headsets were hardly ever used. You never knew when something was said on them because you were listening to the guide. I understand... More

What a tour! We did Sugar Loaf Mountain in the morning, Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) Statute in the afternoon and Plataforma show in the evening. Gray Line provided wonderful tour guides - JB in the morning worked with 4 different language groups and did a wonderful job explaining the different sites. We had a few minutes in the new... More

I agree with karishma B. We were privileged to be picked up at our hotel, but this was good for everyone except that it took too long, and would have been better if we had a few central points and then got going. The tour guide was busy running in and out trying to fetch everyone, which made her hot... More

Dear Shirleyhrs, Thank you so much for your feedback! I'm sorry the tour didn't turn out as you expected. We do recommend that any passengers not wanting to participate in pick ups go to the last pick up point to avoid pick up other passengers. Summer in Rio is quite hot and outside of the buses it can get quite... More

Following our cruise, we wanted to see the sites of Rio. Through Viator we booked several tours through Gray Line. Each was excellent. Our three guides -- JB, Camilla, and Louis -- all went out of their way to make sure our group got to see what we were supposed to see in a timely manner. Camilla made sure that... More

We booked 3 tours/activities on viator.com for Gray Line. They were under shore excursions since we were doing a cruise on Norwegian Sun and it was cheaper to book it on the internet instead of officially through the ship.

Thr Half Day Tour of Rio and Sugar Loaf Mountain was fantastic. It was very educational and a lot of fun. In particular Kamila was knowledgable, energetic, fun and did a good job keeping the group together.
