Our guide jaliber was great- giving us plenty of info and allowing us to customize our day to include a visit to jardin botanical which took us over the time by about 30 minutes of the allowed tour but he was fine with that. Having a guide allowed us to bypass the long lines at sugar loaf and Cristo redentor. We had plenty of time at each site to take pictures, shop and grab a cold drink(very needed in the hot Brazil sun). Would definitely recommend the private tour option and our guide Jal. Thanks for showing us around your city.

We spent the day with Jal seeing the highlights of Rio: Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf Mountain, and many of the historic sites of the city. Having a guide really streamlined the process to see more sites in 1 day than we could have on our own. Jal was knowledgeable and geared the tour towards our interests. We really appreciated his driving & getting us to key sites. A fun day!! Thanks Jal!!

We had an excellent private tour with Jal yesterday. Jal suggested some adjustments to our itinerary based on weather conditions and we were able to capture the best moments at each stop. Jal was very knowledgeable about the history of Rio and told some amazing stories that brought the history to life. He also took us to some sites we never would have found on our own. Thanks Jal for the wonderful day.

Thank you to the FABULOUS Fabiana for a wonderful super private 1 day tour of the amazing Rio highlights! We visited a “Wonder of the world” Christ the Redeemer, experienced great views on top of Sugarloaf mountain, sat and posed on Selaron Steps, had a delicious traditional lunch and even toured arty neighbourhood Santa Teresa! Fabiana was like a personal private photographer, always on hand to take lots of great photos for me whilst remaining very patient, never rushing! She spoke perfect English and was an experienced guide who has visited and lived in so many different countries! You made everything so safe and easy, full of fascinating facts, secret spots, shortcuts and lots of laughs too! Junior was a great driver, dropping us off right outside the sightseeing spots in an air conditioned vehicle. HIGHLY recommended!

I really recommend having a first time visit to Rio through an agency and using a local guide. You'll save time, avoid missing any interesting spots and an unlucky encounter with local thugs.

In this regard, WTKR were great, they even helped with a mistake I made reserving the trip and their guide Daniel was excellent. I would certainly recommend them.

My wife and I flew to São Paulo for a family wedding and decided to do a day trip to Rio. We booked a full day private tour with WTKR picking us at the airport and then dropping us there at the end of the day. We had an excellent experience before and during our tour. Jal, our assigned guide, worked with us to prepare for our visit and bought tickets ahead of time to optimize our time. However, his car had problems the day before our tour and he was able to quickly find a backup. Fabio greeted us at the airport and led us through a whirlwind tour of the city. We checked all sites in our list and got an insider view of this wonderful city. Thank you Jal and Fabio for a wonderful day!

I came to Rio de Janeiro, March of 2021 and I wanted to see so many place; however, when I looked online it appeared to be a daunting task. I booked this tour and the service was amazing. Patricia was my tour guide and took me around town and I viewed the places I wanted to see. Additionally, because I was able to view these places it allowed me to book other excursions. This trip was worth every penny. I had a lovely lunch at sugarloaf. I can’t say how appreciative I was with the service provided by Patricia.
