Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Everything about this tour was amazing. Our driver (for the 2+hour drive to the river), Bruno told us much about the history of Brazil and Rio. It was like having two tours in one. When we arrived at the river, the guides were very friendly and hospitable. Even though the river was down a bit (no rain for 12 days before our trip) it was still a 2 to 3 difficulty with a couple of very nice rapids areas. I will do this again for sure when I come back!!

    I have been lucky enough to be in Rio de Janeiro 5 different times in the last 10 years. I first looked around to see what company offered the best tour for a good price. The first time i called Rio Turismo Radical, they came and picked us up from the San Marco hotel in Rua Visconde de Pirajá. I was amazed at the great tour they took us in. We left at 9 am and saw virtually everything important in Rio, including the Cristo Redentor, Corcovado, Pao de Acucar, Downtown Rio, the Metropolitan Catedral, Lapa, beaches of Botafogo, Copacabana, Ipanema, had a fabulous Brazilian Rodizio, continued on and they brought us back. My second tour 3 years later was again fabulous, as i brought friends and family with me. My third year too. My fourth year found that Rio Turismo had closed for a little bit and i was disappointed to have to use a different company. This other company was awful and very, very expensive. Just two months ago i remember the owner's name. Gustavo Damiani and i started looking for him. All of the sudden i found him, wrote to him and asked him if he was back in business and he told me yes. I was so happy because i was taking 33 musicians with me to Rio and i wanted to use Rio Turismo Radical. It was amazing again. The interpreter, the service, the owners. I met the whole Damiani family and they are just fabulous. I cannot stress enough how good this company is. Take Rio Turismo Radical, you will not regret. You can know that we, 33 musicians took it in Feb. 2016 and it was FABULOUS!!!!
